It has been a week since The New York Times first reported that Syracuse was leaving the Big East to join the ACC. Since then, fans have taken to Twitter, Facebook, ESPN, blogs and Bleacher Report to discuss and debate the fall out.
What is so interesting is that Syracuse, a founding member of the Big East, has made the right decision.
Syracuse abandoned a sinking ship that was the Big East and joined a conference that looks more like their vision of the original Big East (more than likely because a handful of teams were snagged from the Big East in 2003).
Back in that fateful year, Syracuse was this close to being in the ACC, with Boston College left behind in the Big East.
But now that is all past. Syracuse is a part of the ACC. And fans?
This is a great thing. Joining the ACC may be one of the best moves Syracuse could have made and here are five of the big reasons why.
