The domino effect has been accelerated with increased massive force. The Big Ten and the SEC are raiding the ACC for more expansion. Florida State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, UNC, Duke, Virginia, Virginia Tech, N.C. State, are schools that have been in discussions with either the Big Ten, SEC, or both. The ACC has acquired Pitt, Syracuse, and Notre Dame (all sports except football) coming in soon. UCONN is about to replace Maryland (should be announced soon). That's a solid soccer university, and overall soccer area, for the ACC. But one, some, or most of those schools above in bold text, may end up leaving the ACC, for greener pastures (such as the Big Ten or SEC). Money talks. One domino just fell (Maryland). When one domino falls, what happens to the others? Others will see they can "get out" too, for more money, and a more stable conference. The three "stable" super conferences in the future, are the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac 12. Those are the only power conferences not to lose a single member to another conference. The ACC seal has been broken. The Big Ten proved its superiority over the ACC. You won't see a Big Ten school leave for the ACC. But you will see at least one ACC school leave for the Big Ten (as we just saw). Stay tuned. These expansion effforts aren't done. The Big Ten wants to get to at least 16 universities. The SEC wants to at least match that, to stay equal or ahead of the Big Ten (and vice-versa).
