It would be a major domino in conference realignment and we could soon see Virginia bolting. The next question is what would happen some of the other ACC schools like Duke and Georgia Tech. Both schools could receive interest from the Big Ten, as well.
College sports need the North Carolina – Duke rivalry, so let’s hope that whatever happens will lead to these two teams stay in the same conference.
