Agree. I think its about time and accomplished growth. We've fought and

struggled to win, grow, and be successful while being beat down and walked over by the ACC when they expanded. Granted, they are never going to add us due to our close proximity to NC and NCS. Now, they look for larger money markets like the rest.

The SEC and Big12 will never come calling for the same reasons UNLESS we string together 3 or 4 big seasons and get some NY6 Bowl wins as the team people want to follow and support as the big name killers like UCF has become. I still wonder at how they did it so fast. Oh, yeah, hired quality, experienced coaching!

Chances of us being the next UCF or Cinnci? Slim and none under our current regime. The AAC will be weakened with these add-ons I believe. But, someone has to step up and win this Conf every year and that SHOULD be ECU. We need to get back to being the big name killers again. Then, let the chips fall where the may in the next round of expansion. I still say the P5 eventually goes to 18 teams (90 total).

If that happens, we have to be winning consistently and already have some Conf Belts around our waist. Only the ACC is in NC. I cannot see the SEC, B12, or B10 sitting around and not trying to get a piece of NC in their domain. We need 50K in the stadium weekly. That means playing top named teams. Easier said than done.
