I think UNC is the SEC's white whale at this point, but UVA doesn't strike me as a great fit for the SEC. UVA is almost an Ivy at this point and is not as focused on athletics as SEC schools are (minus Vandy). Va Tech has a huge enrollment, strong football, and would provide an entry into the DC market.
