The rising cost of cupcakes

So how expensive are those appearance fees getting?  Pricey enough that the ACC is seriously considering this:

Some Atlantic Coast Conference schools are considering scheduling future nonconference games against — ironically — other ACC schools, league athletic directors and coaches told ESPN.com…

Because of the eight-game league schedule, non-primary crossover rivals in the Atlantic and Coastal divisions may only play each other once in an 11-year span. This prompted discussion at the ACC spring meetings about playing other ACC teams as nonconference opponents in future seasons.

Sucks for you, mid-majors.

    Shorter explanation: The ACC is still planning to schedule cupcakes.

  2. Back in another life I mentioned this as a possibility for some of the old rivalries in the SEC. If they got nixed as part of scheduling changes, they could always play as a non-conference game.

    Have a good one.

    Shorter SEC Home Office comment: “I don’t think so. Homey don’t play that game.”

    I love the logic of “we don’t want to play 9 conference games, we just want to play a 9th conference opponent as a non-conference game.”

    For once, I wholeheartedly agree with the SEC Office’s official stance on something.

    We do it in baseball already.

    Why not football too?

    Since no one really knows who is in the ACC year-to-year, much less who is in what division, I doubt many people will notice.

    Dumbest idea ever. If you play a team in your conference during the regular season, that’s a conference game. Play nine or don’t. Morons.
