Possible Replacements Include UConn, Louisville, Cincy, South Florida

According to CBS Sports, the ACC is moving very fast in seeking a replacement for Maryland, and the leading candidate to join the ACC looks to be UConn, who could announce as soon as tomorrow that it is leaving the Big East for coastal waters. Fans looking for competitiveness are still hoping Louisville makes it to the forefront, since their football and basketball teams would likely be the most competitive across the board in the ACC, but in terms of television market Connecticut is the more alluring draw for the conference.

Should either UConn or Louisville fall through, sources are saying the next two candidates in line would be Cincinnatti and South Florida, the idea of either of which makes me throw up in my mouth just a little.
