    True, but tOSU purposefully spends the money on non-revenue sports, etc. in addition to revenue sports to field a very robust roster of olympic sports (how many schools boast national titles in fencing, pistols, gymnastics AND football in the same decade?) and to make sure its facilities, services to student-athletes are the best across the board, not just for football or men's basketball.

    UVA is very dysfunctional. Don't get me started. Nobody at that school seems to know what the fuck they are doing. There is nothing I would love more than for Ohio State to beat the crap out of them every year. That said, they still would be the best add from the ACC, IMO, especially with Carolina.

    In the grand scheme of things the Tarheels are the best add from the ACC and it's not close.

    Oh and hella noes IRT BC.

    Correct, lots of people that we have never heard of have donated 8 figures. However, I actually have heard of this guy (he deserves a mention here):

    In 1999, Richard J. Solove, a personal friend of Dr. James and a prominent local businessman, donated twenty million dollars to The James' Threshold of Discovery campaign, the largest private donation that The Ohio State Medical Center ever received.

    One fun thing about the re-alignment madness is seeing how fans of various schools/conferences react in completely different ways to the same news.

    ACC abandoning their previous stances by offering ND a sweetheart deal & accepting an academic outlier like Louisville is seen by many fan bases signals weakness within the ACC and is a sign of more escapees in the future.

    Some ACC fans? They see it as signalling that ND will one day be a full member, *Louisville is a sleeping giant and it all points to the ACC soon being the most powerful conference in the land.

    Any guesses as to which narrative my money is on?

    *In all seriousness while I think Louisville is peaking right now (rather than having lots of room to grow), Tom Jurich has done one hell of a job as AD and is a guy I'd love to see in the mix as Smith's successor. As it stands right now their athletic department revenue would place them 6th in the B1G. Not too shabby when your neighborhood is the Big East.
