I've thought that Louisville is an interesting school, especially looked at through the lens of expansion. They're headed to the ACC, but do you expect them to stick with that? After watching them beat Florida, the thought crossed my mind. Basically, here's the way I see it: Their basketball program is historically very good. They've got passionate fans, and success to back it up. I don't think they've ever been much of a threat in football, but that could be changing, as we saw against Florida. Obviously football is where the real money is, and will probably be the main factor in any decision. By moving into more of a football-driven league (a la b1g, or sec), they *probably* improve their recruiting, and that could be the bump they needed to step up into consistent success. That said, would they be an attractive target for conferences in monetary terms? I don't really think of Louisville as having a nationwide network of rabid fans to entice television networks.
I'm just looking for some thoughts from all of you folks; would you want Louisville in the B1G? Would you be dissapointed/happy/neutral if they went to the SEC? Do you think that this whole thing is pointless because they're going to the ACC?
Hope this isn't a repeat forum topic, I browsed through a little, but couldn't find anything related.
