Virginia Tech is not stuck anywhere. We are in the ACC just where we choose to be, where we ought to be, where we belong. Like all 14 memebrs Virginia Tech will make those decisions it feels are in the best long term interest of all of the members of the ACC.
If you want to root for an SEC or Big 8,10,12,14 team go find one. We're happy where we are and look forward to moving into the future.
I love being in the ACC, I don't want to be anywhere else. I also know that this is big business and you are either innovating or you are dying. Blind loyalty in business can mean ruin. I hope we know when to make decisions to protect our interests and not the interests of the other schools. I see partial membership with no concrete, predetermined, contractually obligated steps to full membership as the possible impetus for FSU etc. to bolt and there are only so many slots available. I would hate to see it come to that, but it may.
I just don't want to be the guy lamenting the blu-ray because VHS is just fine.
