Probably depends on what the league's rules state in regards to expansion, i.e. does it have to be a unanimous vote or just a majority to admit a new member.I'm on anyone's side who thinks it could speed up. Would be torture to have to wait 15 years and could be damaged with there revenue gap
But do you really think the wake Forrest and bc types who could get left out would be dumb enough to renegotiate exit terms when a team like wvu or Cincy is added via expansion?
Theyd be starting their own demise. Hopefully the people in charge of those types are dumber than I think
Secondly, and the red herring in the room if you're the ACC, Notre Dame. Not a full member, but for media rights purposes an important part of the finances of the whole. I don't see them going anywhere unless they have to, but I bet they could "break the wheel" so to speak if they wanted because they aren't a full ACC football member...and that might be enough to force everyone else back to the table with their media partners.
