Why would we push Duke out? The ACC is the best basketball conference, we don't wanna lose that
Football is king and Duke is already starting to lag. Neither Duke or NC are who they were, Coach K leaving reduces Duke even more. Wait until The SEC signs a TV contract worth 60 mil per school. Another reason ? ND and Baylor are bigger than Duke or a Wake Forest, it’s about branding now, The ACC cannot get stuck bringing in Kansas or the likes, they go big or go home. They also have to cut identity related to small branded schools. Duke nor Wake will ever be big enough to enhance the ACC. I see little drop off if any in basketball Money going forward by bringing in Baylor and dropping Duke. Who are the 2021 NCAA basketball champions ?
