The thought of the new college Mega-Conferences is really starting to worry some schools, while others are ready to jump
Texas A&M to the Southeastern Conference, Texas to PAC 12, TCU to the Big East, Syracuse to the ACC, West Virginia to the Big 12 or even the Big 10 and what about the Little Six?????
These proposed Mega-Conferences are really starting to worry some people and thoughts of this are not new….No need to be scared…..
I was proposing these type of moves back in 1984, when I was writing for the Greensboro Sports Page, a sports weekly, that pretty much covered the Triad…..
My articles were on ACC expansion and this was back in 1984 and even at that time, I was calling for Florida State, Miami, Virginia Tech, the return of South Carolina and the addition of West Virginia to the ACC…..
Now with 12 members, if the ACC could add West Virginia, Georgia, Florida and Syracuse that would give the league a good mix and it would make the ACC a 16-team Mega-Conference……I would be more than happy to substitute South Carolina for one of the above teams, if one of them said they didn’t want to go with “The Best”……
It is time the Atlantic Coast Conference stopped standing around and watching all the other powerhouse conferences swoop in and steal all the good teams, that should belong to us…..
It would make a great connection to have Florida as a like team for Florida State and Miami…..West Virginia would be a perfect fit for Virginia Tech, Virginia and Syracuse…..Georgia would seal a good deal for Georgia Tech, Florida, FSU and Miami….If South Carolina came back, they would fit right in with Clemson, North Carolina, N.C. State, Virginia Tech and others…..Syracuse would match up nicely with West Virginia, Boston College, Maryland, Virginia Tech and Virginia……
Let’s stop talking and spend some money and go get these teams that I am talking about, or as many of them as possible……
We can do it and it will work….It is time for the ACC to become a Mega-Conference and for them to stop being kicked to the curb, every time the SEC says that they want to expand and they will steal our ACC teams and dare us to stop them…..
Stop them now and kick their SEC butts……Got get Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, West Virginia and or Syracuse…..This is the ACC and it is time to stand up and be the boss of the best conference in the United States…..
Greensboro is home of the ACC and if you ask me, “this land(Conference) is your land, this land(Conference) is my land, from the New York Mountains, to the Florida lowlands, from the good ole’ Wake Forest to Gulf of Mexico waters, the ACC was made for you and me”…….
“The ACC was made for you and me”!!!!!
The ACC was made for you and me brother……..

When it’s all said and done, we’ll have what everyone projected a year ago: A college football world comprised of the very wealthy haves (SEC, ACC, Pac-Something and Big Ten-In-Name-Only) and the begging-on-the-street-corner have-nots (everyone else in Division I).
