So exactly why would the ACC's AAU members help VT join that club if we were planning to leave for the SEC?
What I was suggesting is VT could get the 5 or 6 AAU votes from the ACC, while BEHIND THE SCENES getting support from some of the 4 SEC schools. Just saying that if they leverage this athletic conference thing correctly, they could lock up support from 10 of the 60, or so, AAU schools. You know, make a call to the A&M prez and say, hey keep this between us, but if you help us with this AAU deal, we'll reconsider our conference affiliation.
I know I'm getting out there with this, but I'm sure a little politicking of this type goes on. This could potentially turn a NO vote from a Florida or a Missouri into a yes vote. That's all Im say'n.
