AG Kilgore's commentary on the ACC-Big East dispute

Published in today's Roanoke Times is this explanation by Attorney General Kilgore on his position in the dispute between the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big East over whether Miami and others will leave for the ACC.

Kilgore is a graduate of what is now known as the University of Virginia College at Wise, and I've seen him at football games in Charlottesville, but he has signed onto the pleadings on behalf of Virginia Tech in the Big East lawsuit filed in Connecticut.

In the same paper, Doug Doughty, who covers U.Va. sports, notes here the irony that "You can't give a recruit $9 - and I'm not saying you should - but you can bribe a school, as the Big East did, in essence, with its $9 million guarantee to Miami."
