Louisville joins ACC
« on: November 28, 2012, 12:26:51 PM »
Cincy and UConn were considered but ultimately Louisville was picked as the replacement for Maryland to keep the ACC at 14.  They are by far the best football team in the Big Least's BCS era and are a very good basketball school.

This is huge for Louisville, they instantly become the best basketball team in the ACC, and maybe football too..the bigger win is that this should keep Charley Strong from leaving town!

Best basketball team in the ACC?  I would consider UNC and Duke better than Louisville (which compares well to Syracuse IMO).

Pretty sure Louisville is currently ranked higher(#2) and has been to 2 final 4's in the last ten years including last year.

How many final fours has UNC and Duke each had in the last ten years?

Loserville is nowhere near best in ACC, in basketball......that conference will always start on tobacco road and go from there.  This does give them 5-6 teams that are going to be top 15 this year.  Nothing against Indiana, but Duke is the real 1 from what I've seen.

  • cjbeckel: What is the payment status for :BOS: ?
    May 28, 2016, 10:46:24 PM
  • Scalious: Its Currently paid for this year at least
    May 28, 2016, 10:48:56 PM

    May 28, 2016, 11:21:28 PM
  • Scalious: I hired a guy..but he made 1-2 apperances so far
    May 28, 2016, 11:22:21 PM
  • Jonathan: He wanted Dansby, but wasn't willing to include any top prospects.  :P
    May 28, 2016, 11:26:20 PM
  • Jonathan: I want your best guy, buy so and so can't be in deal. Funny stuff.
    May 28, 2016, 11:27:04 PM
  • cjbeckel: Jonathan gave a similar response regarding Jimmie in the new Payment Tracker Thread.  Well let’s give him a chance.  I’m open to helping out if we need to have an owner for that team moving forward.  In the meantime, it looks like we have a full 30 team league then!
    May 28, 2016, 11:28:40 PM
  • cjbeckel: You cant deny that Dansby is a stud
    May 28, 2016, 11:30:27 PM
  • Jonathan: Yeah, but looking deeper.... he hasn't been on site since the 17th
    May 28, 2016, 11:30:48 PM
  • cjbeckel: Well, that was only 11 days ago, let's see what happens
    May 28, 2016, 11:35:23 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I would put the :COL: owner in the same boat. I've never looked for a replacement because CJ foots the bill. But he is/has always been a ghost.
    May 29, 2016, 12:27:02 AM
  • Jpsprague10: I typically start monitering activity around this time so we have an idea of how much may need recruited for.
    May 29, 2016, 12:32:02 AM
  • cjbeckel: Yes, Mike showed great promise and did a good job on cleaning up the roster.  I have been hopeful that he would return, but he has not logged in since Feb.  He put the ROX in a great position to move forward.  If he does not return this year I will consider him MIA, and do the work of rebuilding the ROX myself because :SEA: is far more marketable.
    May 29, 2016, 12:37:35 AM
  • cjbeckel: Not everyone is as great as Calvin in :TEX:
    May 29, 2016, 12:38:28 AM
  • cjbeckel: I personally really liked Mike, I hope he returns this year.  When here he is a very good member of ML
    May 29, 2016, 12:43:39 AM
  • cjbeckel: Is Nick still the person we need to send payment to every year or has that changed?
