The ACC family will swell to 15 today. No doubt there will be much pageantry in New York as Commissioner John Swofford welcomes Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame (for everything but football) into the mix. His chest might stick out so far he’ll pop a few buttons on his shirt.

The new additions Swofford has brought in will extend the traditional conference footprint beyond the South. The ACC banner now waves in the Northeast and Midwest, though Notre Dame is really an international brand. It will fly next year in Kentucky — a tweener state that’s not quite the South and not quite the Midwest — when Louisville comes onboard to essentially to replace Maryland after it bolts for the Big Ten.
