I'm a little surprised that the ACC took Louisville because of their poorer academics vs. UConn--but I understand that it was a move that would appeal to FSU and, in retrospect, was probably part of the reason that they agreed to sign onto the lawsuit.
I disagree regarding the motives behind the lawsuit. Florida State (imo) signed it because they want to make Maryland the guinea pig. They're hoping Maryland wins because it would mean that FSU could bail as well.
