first_img Published on September 16, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13 UPDATED: Sept. 18, 1:11 a.m. Syracuse and Pittsburgh have initiated the process of leaving the Big East by applying to join the Atlantic Coast Conference, according to reports from The New York Times and ESPN. Both reports quote an anonymous ACC official, who said 10 other schools have reached out to the conference as well. As of late Saturday night, USA Today is reporting that the ACC has approved the addition of both schools. SU Athletic Director Daryl Gross declined to comment on Friday and Saturday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Big East Director of Communications Chuck Sullivan said the conference and the commissioner, John Marinatto, had no comment. Calls to Pittsburgh Athletic Director Steve Pederson and Mike Finn, the ACC associate commissioner for football communications, were not immediately returned. This news comes one week after the ACC presidents voted to unanimously increase the fee to leave the conference. The fee was raised to $20 million. It’s also just one week after the Southeastern Conference voted to accept Texas A&M as its 13th member. If the Orange and the Panthers leave the Big East, it won’t be the first time the ACC has absorbed members of the conference. Miami, Virginia Tech and Boston College all left the Big East for the ACC in 2003. Pittsburgh joined the Big East in 1982. Syracuse is a founding member of the conference.

first_imgMark McHugh knows Kilcar need to win and possibly win well if they’re to have any chance of progressing to the last eight of the Donegal SFC.Kilcar host Bundoran this weekend in Towney, knowing a big victory over Brian McEniff’s side may not be enough to see them advance to the last eight. Glenswilly host St Michaels and if they secure a win, then John McNulty’s side would need to record a huge win over Bundoran to advance on scoring difference.Kilcar currently sit third in the group on two points, Glenswilly sit on second, but have a superior scoring difference after hammering Bundoran by 6-15 to 0-09 last Saturday. Kilcar can only concentrate on themselves on Saturday night, and will look to first secure the win before they start thinking about how much they’re going to win by.But there’s no doubt the Kilcar management will be informed of what’s going in Foxhall and there players will be aware of what’s going on throughout their match.Bundoran have suffered two heavy defeats and it’s hard to see anything other than a Kilcar win.With Kilcar knowing they may need to rack up a huge score against Bundoran, expect to see a ruthless display. With Patrick McBrearty and Ashley Carr in their forward line, Kilcar carry a serious threat inside and it could be a long hour for Brian McEniff’s men on Saturday evening.VERDICT – KILCAR  DONEGAL SFC PREVIEW: KILCAR PRAYING FOR A ST MICHAELS WIN AS THEY HOST BUNDORAN was last modified: October 9th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundoranDonegal SFCGAAkilcarnewsSportlast_img read more
