U.Va.'s Casteen joins Duke and Carolina opposing expansion; vote delayed, perhaps indefinitely

This interesting Knight-Ridder report relates that ACC expansion was the result of threats by Florida State, beginning under the regime of former ABA president Sandy D'Alemberte while he was head of FSU, but now three schools - Virginia, Duke, and Carolina - are ready to vote against expansion, leaving the process so thoroughly derailed that a letter from the Big East schools asking the ACC to avoid a "rush to judgment" made them laugh at the ACC office, which apparently does not know when if ever an expansion vote will take place.

This AP report also describes the two days of fruitless talks among the ACC representatives.
