Why do they feel it is their right to get 7 home games in a 12-gm season? Regardless if it is 8 or 9 games, why should anyone get more than half the games at home.
It's not just the amount of home games. It's the the fact that they're the only ACC schools with an annual OOC rivalry game. Where VT has the flexibility to schedule 3 non-annual OOC opponents, they can only schedule 2. The home game issue comes into play with this because they need the revenue hosting a home generates and now they'll be restricted to playing mostly crappy teams in one-off deals in order to get the amount of revenue they expect.
