NCAAF  > Penn State Nittany Lions  > Should Penn State join the ACC?
September 21, 2011, 09:46 PM
Hey, college football is wacky right now.

We just watched two of the top basketball programs in the nation, playing in arguably the top basketball conference in the nation, uproot their entire athletic programs in the name of football. Syracuse and Pittsburgh are going to the ACC, and while I???m not sure it has any great impact on football, March in New York City isn???t ever going to be the same again.

The thing about it is, moves like this are going to happen more and more often as the months and years go by. Like it or not, universities are trending toward the big money, and the NCAA is looking more and more like an organization that is going to see superconferences housing pretty much every big-time program. General consensus indicates that, by the time all the shuffling is finished, we could see four power conferences covering 16 teams apiece.

All for football.

Here's the rest of the story:

I went to test the link out twice before posting (like I always do), and it failed the second time, but I just checked it again and it was fine. Bleacher Report sometimes has problems, and I can't help that. If it continues, I'll just post it as a entire blog, or edit it for space here and try to keep the essence of the story intact.

Is there any financial rationale to this?

You mean Penn St. ditching the B10 for the ACC? I've given up even thinking about this. It's out of our hands, and the consensus has always been the money angle, so it has to be there somewhere. I don't see it being done for academics!
