    Swap FSU and Miami and everything is good. Outside of the roundrobin before expansion, I like our line up outside of not playing FSU.

    Couldn’t Duke have been our permanent crossover opponent?

    You just don’t want to go back to the ACCCG for the next 10 years?

    I have no desire to have Clemson, Miami and FSU in our division. I like the Tobacco Road Division: Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech, UNC, Duke, Wake and NCSU. The Metro Division would have GT, FSU, Miami, Louisville, Pitt, BC and Syracuse. I would prefer that only games within your division count toward determining who plays in the championship game. But, I would require teams to play three other games against schools in the other division, including any games with ND. That gives the ACC netwrork a nine game preschool inventory of conference games.

    My favorite idea is to do away with divisions, require either 8 or 9 conference games, and invite the two teams with the best conference records to the championship game.

    one of the big holdups is guaranteeing ACC teams have a game in Florida at least once every other year. This is a big recruiting selling point for other ACC schools and one reason why we split FSU and Miami.

    If we had simply taken UMd spot when they left, UVA would have been our crossover. Clemson would have faced UL in the Coastal. And we would have had Clem and UGa at Bobby Dodd on opposite years.

    Get ND and one more to do and then make this happen. Play 7 teams in your division and 2 rotating cross-over games. Get rid of the permanent crossover rival.

    My two favorite teams are TECH and whoever's playing Georgia.
    I like the idea of putting all the former Big East schools in the Atlantic, and leaving Wake in the Atlantic to keep it at seven teams in each division. Permanent crossover rivals as noted below.

    Atlantic...................Coastal
    Miami.......................FSU
    VT.............................Virginia
    BC.............................Clemson
    Louisville..................GT
    Pitt............................UNC
    Syracuse....................NC State
    Wake.........................Duke

    Divisions? Where we’re going we don’t need divisions. Seriously tho, I thought this problem was already solved a couple of seasons ago when someone proposed a divisionless ACC with 3-4 perm rivals and rotating the rest. Top 2 play for championship. Boom.

    No way to get n.d. They want the advantage of the ACC with none of the other things to go with it. Whores.

    Coaches don’t want 9 conference games particularly teams like Tech who have an SEC or other major OOC rival.

    North/South with Miami in the north.

    It is the only solution.

    Edit:

    Yeah, that is basically the Corndog solution.
