    ACC to go to 18 game conf schedule

    ACC to move to 18-game schedule for basketball - College Basketball - Rivals.com

    ACC to go to 18 game conf. schedule next year regardless of conference membership.

    That puts the Big 12, Big 10, Pac12, ACC, and Big East at an 18 game BB conference schedule. Only conference remaining at 16 is SEC.

    For football, all BCS conferences are at or planning at some point in the next few years to go to a 9 game conference schedule...except the SEC.

    I'm noticing a pattern here...

    Of course, they have the best TV product now as far as basketball goes, might as well maximize it. Same reason we are getting more conference games in the two biggest sports. To maximize the TV product.

    The sec is going to a 10 game conf schedule for football I hope since nobody else can compete with them. Maybe they'll create their own division.

    They used to,they've been falling back lately. Got to wonder if you can have too many teams in a conference.

    Granted, but they aren't there yet. Personally I don't see Syracuse falling back much but Pitt is a little up and down year to year. It's just kinda funny how the ACC used to have 70 % of its teams that always were in the chase,at least for the Big Dance,and that has fallen off lately.They used to be similar to what the BE was last year. I'm interested to see what happens the next few years.

    Re: ACC to go to 18 game conf schedule

    Right now it seems like you have Duke and UNC and then the rest of the conference. Yeah there are some solid programs in there but there's a divide between the big two and the rest. Pitt and Cuse joining will make that divide bigger and you'll have a big four of top 10 programs and then the rest just scrapping to get into the Dance
