ACC finishes in 3 way tie for second with 6 teams in. B1G and Atlantic 10 also have six teams in. Big 12 ends up with 7. B1G and ACC tied with two teams each in the NIT.
Although this is just a snapshot, it is still indicative that the ACC does not have any vaunted superiority. Yesterday proved that finishing in the middle of the ACC is not sufficient to get into the NIT. Beating the ACC regular and tournament champion was worth nothing in this context. Beating Duke twice last year was not worth much more either. Again, nothing superior about the ACC.
Moving to the B1G is no worse than a lateral move basketball-wise; major upgrade football-wise; and more $$$ in the bank, which is sorely needed. Also, no more Carolina refs. What's not to like? I really look forward to it, although I will miss our rivalry with Pitt.
