is the endgame for the ACC really that bad off? Even if they lose all their prestige schools, the remaining schools would own the Orange Bowl and have an ok TV deal and a guaranteed contract bowl spot for 12 years. We'd essentially have the Big 4, Midsize 1 and Little 5.

Yes to this all day. The east coast additions were sort of acceptable because the geography still worked at the end of the day... these were contiguous regions with a lot of B1G alumni and the two schools were good cultural fits as large land grant schools. The idea of continuing down the coast with UNC (or Notre Dame) as the ultimate prize is compelling in that regard, so rumors linking the B1G to the Virginia schools make sense. But Georgia Tech? That's just nonsense.
