Texas coach Mack Brown once coached in the ACC when he was at North Carolina.
He probably never expected to move back in that conference while with the Longhorns.
Welcome to the chaos of conference expansion. The recent moves around the landscape of college football have been felt in just about every conference except the ACC—a league that made their big move in 2003 when it gained Miami, Boston College and Virginia Tech.
Well, that move towards a football conference certainly has not paid off the way ACC commissioner John Swofford and company anticipated.
No fear though, now there is a report that Texas may be jumping to the ACC. While the move seems entirely insane, it makes sense from a strict economic standpoint.
The ACC would let the Longhorns keep their TV network—something that the Pac-12 will not, and something that is killing the Big 12 conference as we speak.
Considering TCU is joining the Big East soon, maybe this is the future.
If it is, the ACC cannot stop there. So what will their new super-conference look like?
