Does this put the ACC is any type of turmoil? Im sure they arent happy about it, but to be honest with all the changes going on in that conference and the Big East and such, I dont know who the ACC's future members are, or were going to be.

Louisville to the big 12 happens next year imo

The ESPN article talking about Maryland said the ACC would most likely look at UConn and Louisville as replacements for Maryland

No way in hell does GA Tech come back to the SEC. They quit once because they couldn't hack it, they know better then to come back. Plus UGA wouldn't allow it.

No, and your team is prime example. Use to every week mattered. Bama has lost a game late in the season, at home two years in a row, and will still play for the BCSNCG if they beat Georgia. Losing at home in the final weeks of the season use to be a kiss of death, but not anymore. Anything is possible.

Actually, that's not unusual in the SEC because our SOS usually enable us to recover from a loss, regardless of how late it happens, if teams from the other conferences lose a game too. One of the things that's always helped is playing a conference championship game, because that has meant an additional game against a top-ranked team that boosts that SOS and has enabled us to jump teams from other conferences who didn't have a conference championship game.

In 2006, UF lost halfway through the season and bounced back to get in and win the NC. In 2007, LSU lost TWICE, once in the middle of the season and again in their very last game of the regular season, and still had a SOS strong enough to get in and win the NC.

So, really, what Bama is doing isn't even unprecedented or unusual.

VaTech and UVA are not joined at the hip.  They've only been in the same conference for a little while.  VaTech has a MUCH bigger/better fanbase and is the most attractive of the two.  NC State is the odd man out of the NC trio (UNC/Duke).  I think it could happen now that MD has flown the coup.

It would work nicely for everyone.

Louisville makes a MUUUUUUUCH better fit in the ACC than Big 12, but frankly neither should let that commuter school in.  I don't know why anyone would want them.  Kentucky owns the media market in that frickin city....so you're not gonna gain anything because our fans don't give a damn about the Big 12 and we hate the ACC.

I just wondered what the odds are of it happening 2 years in a row. The lost at home late, to a top 20 team. Florida lost at a neutral site earlier in the season to the #10 team. Yet Alabama will win the West if they win tomorrow, so I guess they deserve a chance to play for the title.
