There has been a lot of discussion about Louisville making it to the Big 12. My opinion is that joining the Big 12 would open some doors for the program, but it will present almost twice as many problems. Texas is an @sshole. I don't know that Louisville should jump just for the sake of jumping. Not into the Big 12 anyhow.... I would like for Louisville to jump to the ACC.
The ACC seems like a much more stable conference in every facet. I think our demographic of fans supports the east coast more so than the west/mid-west. It would make for easier competition in football. Rick Pitino would have an easier time recruiting (or not recruiting, but that's another obnoxious fanpost), and he favors the Northeast. We would be able to continue our rivalries with Pittsburgh and Syracuse. And we wouldn't have a certain Texas-sized problem to deal with when it came time for television rights, conference-payouts, conference realignments, etc.
But how do we get there? It is definitely a long shot. Miami's football program has a very realistic chance of being handed the death penalty. For football reasons, the ACC will need another team. How great would it be to get that nod? I'll answer. It would be super great.
