Breaking the logjam - ACC offers to add Virginia Tech along with others

Apparently, a move is afoot for the Atlantic Coast Conference to include Virginia Tech in its expansion plans, which would allow U.Va. president John Casteen to support the expansion, give the ACC enough votes to move, eliminate one big player in the Big East lawsuit (and further dilute the money per school in the new ACC.)

From the Roanoke Times: "Source: ACC opts to consider Virginia Tech"

From the Washington Post: "ACC Will Reconsider Hokies for Expansion - Adding Virginia Tech Would Make It a 13-Team League"

From the Daily Press: "Tech back in ACC expansion picture - School being reconsidered as a 13th member"

From the Charlottesville Daily Progress: "Lucky 13? ACC presidents discuss Tech"

From the Richmond Times-Dispatch: "Is Tech back in play for ACC?"

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: "Hokies back on ACC list"

From the Charlotte Observer: "ACC reconsiders Va. Tech - School president expected to speak with board before responding"

From the Durham Herald-Sun: "Expansion: More talk, no vote"

From the Duke Chronicle: "Report: ACC will invite V.T. to join"

From the Hartford Courant: "ACC After Va. Tech - Big East Facing 4-Team Exodus?"

From the Miami Herald: "Option play: ACC to add Va. Tech? - A 13-team conference now a possibility"

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "Virginia Tech key to solid Big East"

From the Charleston WV Daily Mail: "Virginia Tech ACC's next target"
