Having graduated from Virginia Tech, then moving to Greensboro, I remember the ruckus that was caused last time a conference decided to expand. Admittedly, I haven’t followed the latest round of rumors. So when I caught a recent blog by a VT satirist – Jim Alderson (www.the-a-line.com), I got a good laugh.

To say that this round is a fiasco of epic proportions would be an understatement. Seems like everything hinges on Notre Dame this time around. But the fact that conferences are considering expanding to a 16-team league seems beyond laughable, if not downright ludicrous.

Who knows what this will all bring… we have to wait and see. But in the meantime, it provides for a good laugh because there’s no real news – all of it’s generated by message board loons and fanatical bloggers.
