Each week during college football season, columnist Luke DeCock and our college reporters will answer the most important questions of the weekend. Our roundtable discussion begins with the state of state schools.
1) Expansion was supposed to be about football. Who would you rather be in a football conference with: Boston College and Pitt, or West Virginia and East Carolina?
2) The ACC is very proud of its academic prestige, and seemingly added teams to enhance this instead of football. But crying “academics” as an excuse to ignore ECU and West Virginia went out the window when they added Louisville.
I know this: ECU’s game day environment would be a welcomed change. The vapid atmospheres at Boston College, Pitt and Miami drag the ACC down to Sun Belt levels.
