Football Expansion from a Basketball Perspective

I caught Syracuse Mens Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim on a PTI segment Tuesday night discussing the Syracuse/Pitt move to the ACC, and he made a number of good points.  Combined with a conversation I had this weekend with a Georgetown alum, I’m wondering how everyone in the non-football sports (and schools) is viewing realignment.  It seems like they’re mostly getting lost in the shuffle.  Anyway, there’s another good followup with Boeheim in the WSJ yesterday morning:

“If conference commissioners were the founding fathers of this country,” Boeheim told the club, “we would have Guatemala, Uruguay and Argentina in the United States.”
