With the NCAA landscape in flux, conferences around the country are pondering their futures seemingly every hour.
The Atlantic Coast Conference is no different. While it has been less than 10 years since the conference expanded to its current format of 12, there is a real possibility that the other conference may have to look at expanding once again, or risk going the way of the Big 12.
In order to do that, the league may have to start looking to pluck some schools from other conferences such as the Big East, Conference USA and even the SEC. At the same time, the ACC could potentially lose some of its current members.
If this were to happen, what would become of the ACC? The answers, like with every other conference, would depend on money, and television.
But, in this new landscape the ACC could build anew with a mixture of old and new.
It could be based on traditional basketball powers while incorporating a strong football back ground.
The ACC could add solid academics as well as athletics. With a few surprises, a new ACC would be an intriguing conference to say the least.
So who is in and who is out?
