That might be true, but I don't think its a deal breaker. UNC is a much tougher fish to reel in. There is a high degree of academic snobbery there and at UVA. They see themselves more in a B!G academic setting than an SEC one. They know the SEC won't offer both them and Duke, but the B!G might. So, they will hold out until the bitter end which may be longer than the SEC cares to.

NC St is the football program and regaining their basketball prominence, and that would appeal to the SEC. NC St will draw enough of the interest in North Carolina to make it worthwhile unlike the crapshoot with Duke.

I think the SEC would prefer UVA and UNC, but UVA is even more snobbey than UNC, so they focused on the better football school in VPI. They'll probably do the same in North Carolina.
