BOTTOMLINE: the ACC presidents would not support adding WVU PERIOD PERIOD PERIOD. Swofford knew that explicitly. Further, ACC presidents wanted BC, they wanted syracuse they wanted pittsburgh; and due to politics they got Va Tech. It is what it is. Va Tech has evolved into a perfect acc member. Their leaders are on acc executive committees; they follow the acc guidance. no augment no complaints.
sorry, the acc membership did not want at all to have any relationship with WVU. That includes Va Tech
SO, if any fan desires VT to go to the SEC, it isn't happening and if you all not happy suggest changing alligences.

Remember, they initially thought we wouldnt "fit in" either and while they would bring up the rear in lots of respects, they are a helluva football program despite thier resouces.
