According to the Associated Press, Syracuse will join the ACC on July 1, 2013 (a year earlier than expected). Under the terms of the agreement, Syracuse will pay an exit fee of $7.5 million to the Big East (this is $2.5 million more than specified by the conference bylaws).
SB Nation’s Pittsburgh site (via CBSSports.com) is also reporting that Pittsburgh has reached an agreement to leave the Big East – and will also join the ACC on July 1, 2013. Pittsburgh will also pay an exit fee of $7.5 million to the Big East.
Nunes Magician, SB Nation’s Syracuse sports blog run by Sean Keeley, gives you an idea of what Syracuse’s 2013-2014 ACC Football, Basketball & Lacrosse schedules might look like.
While you’re at it, please follow a couple of my favorite Syracuse Twitter accounts, including @NunesMagician and @Eric_TheOrange. Additionally, please follow @PittScript and @FearTheStache, some of my favorite Pitt Panther Twitter accounts. We are expecting each of these guys (and their followers) to provide suggestions to @D1scourse for his ACC best eats blog post. @D1scourse recently put out call for suggestions.
