There has been much consternation on Twitter this morning/early afternoon between BTP staffers about which teams should be matched up against one another in next year's ACC-B1G Challenge.
There is lingering resentment about Maryland playing an ACC newbie:
@tbeindit Spite. Pure spite.— Andrew Emmer (@AndrewEmmer) May 1, 2014
There is a potential barnburner, countered with mascot violence:
@tbeindit I'd like to see Wisconsin play Syracuse. Revenge for Tourney loss in 2012. Also to see Bucky bodyslam Otto the Orange.— Drew Hamm (@drewhamm5) May 1, 2014
With a handful of new characters entering the fray for next year, including Maryland on the other side of the aisle, Rutgers in over their heads, and Louisville in what I assume is a one year thing before they switch conferences again; who do you think would make the best matchup for your team? Michigan/Louisville in a rematch of last year's championship game? Wisconsin/Syracuse in a rematch of two years ago's Sweet 16 classic? Maryland/Duke in a rematch of decade's of awesome games? Virginia/Nebraska in a "we surprised you last year, didn't we?" showdown? Pitt/Penn State in a Battle for Western & Central Pennsylvania? Rutgers/Louisville in a "good God, please no!" game?
How about a Louisville-Rutgers rematch? The last one was so thrilling. pic.twitter.com/FEzfVO0tZR— Thomas Beindit (@tbeindit) May 1, 2014
Your turn in the comments. Whom do you want to play and why?
