    That makes me feel a litle better.

    A little.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    How can the Big East survive if the ACC decides to go to 16 teams?

    Yes, defending one's position tends to be defensive, and he does it well - he clarified, illuminated, and didn't budge.

    Most importantly, he has verified sources and credibility. The critique he's responding too was a lot of fluff, but no traceable substance.

    Full list of schools??? Because with the SEC stealing from the ACC(Which means the ACC is going to steal more from the Big East) and Big 10 stealing from the Big East, you're running out of teams fast.

    We've explained this...Big East strikes first = No reason for Big East team to go to ACC.

    Why the heck do you assume the ACC can pull schools from the Big East at will? If the Big East expands first and makes a motion to add a TV network, there is no reason for a team to leave for the ACC IMO.
