Schadenfreude: West Virginia Already Applied to, Turned Down by ACC

I mentioned West Virginia as a possible candidate for ACC expansion yesterday, but dismissed them as unlikely and not a great match. Being turned down by the SEC did nothing to make them more attractive in my book. Looks like the rest of  the ACC agrees. Via CBS' ultra-reliable Brett McMurphy.

Multiple Big East sources said they have been told by WVU officials that WVU rejected by ACC & SEC

Ouch. Also, haha. More than a little schadenfreude in there.

I think we could argue all day long whether or not West Virginia would fit in with the ACC, but it looks like a moot point now. I have academic and cultural concerns on both counts, but, as Debbie Yow would say, y'know, whatever. Doesn't matter anymore.

I'm still expecting UConn and Rutgers to be the most likely additions, with Louisville as a darkhorse and Notre Dame and Penn State as the pipe dream candidates to whom overtures will be made. Grabbing either would be pretty incredible, though highly unlikely. The carousel isn't stopping anytime soon.
