Pittsburgh And Syracuse Applied For Membership In ACC

CBS's Brett McMurphy broke the news this morning that both Pittsburgh and Syracuse likely are on the move to the ACC:

Pittsburgh and Syracuse independently submitted letters of application to the ACC, a league source told CBSSports.com.

"There is no scenario where a president applies to a league and isn't admitted," a Big East official told CBSSports.com.

So, uh, welcome aboard I guess? If the report is accurate, it's good news for the ACC's long term viability, though it doesn't do a hell of a lot for the league's football reputation right away. Basketball, on the other hand, is enhanced big time with the addition of Jim Boeheim and Jamie Dixon and their respective programs.
