Pittsburgh And Syracuse Applied For Membership In ACC

New, 14 comments

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.
