ACC Expansion: Pitt and Syracuse Moving Quickly, Reportedly Have Applied For Membership

Talks of Pitt and Syracuse going to the ACC are quickly gaining steam. After word broke last night that the Panthers and Orange could be headed there, news came that both schools have actually already applied for membership:

The Atlantic Coast Conference has been approached by at least 10 schools about possible membership, a group that includes the Big East’s Pitt and Syracuse, both of which have tendered letters of application, a high-ranking ACC official said Saturday morning.

If both schools have indeed applied for membership, this has been in the works for longer than we knew. You’ve also got to think that if both schools are putting themselves out there like this, that they’re fairly confident they’d be accepted. If the deal fell through, Pitt and Syracuse would then have to go back to the conference with egg on their faces.

I don’t want to say this is a done deal, but it’s hard to see this not happening with this moving as fast as they are.
