Conference Realignment

With the Atlantic Coast Conference treating rival leagues like so many all-you-can-eat buffets, nobody is safe. There are whispers that the ACC might turn its attention to the Southeastern Conference.

For Big East athletic directors, the only fireworks they expect to see this weekend are of the holiday variety. After weeks of almost daily twists and turns in the Atlantic Coast Conference expansion saga, things are starting to calm down.
But at this point, everyone in the expansion ripple remains on guard. While the football dollars flow freely into athletic department coffers, a more valuable commodity - trust - is at a premium.
Boston College and Syracuse were left out of the ACC's expansion mix. On Monday, the two schools talked of returning to the fold more unified than ever.

Even before Miami and Virginia Tech officially accepted invitations to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, rumors involving Xavier University and other schools started circulating in newspapers, Internet chat rooms and on sports radio talk shows. Some of the conjecture involved XU forming an all-Catholic basketball conference with some of the remaining members of the Big East. Other chatter had XU and other schools joining the Big East.
