North Carolina and Virginia headed to the Big Ten?

Here we go again. The rumors about another round of the Big Ten raiding the ACC are back in full force. Reports claim that the B1G has given North Carolina an invitation to join the conference. This would be in conjunction with Virginia also defecting from the ACC.

To be honest, I cant see UNC leaving the ACC without Duke. The two schools have been the subject of rumors that they could be SEC bound.  Though that one's been fallow for a while now.

Of course, this brings up the old rumor of Georgia Tech joining the Big Ten. Even though the B1G has more than enough "nerd" schools with Purdue and Northwestern, having the North Avenue Trade School just might work. Imagine the Purdue-Georgia Tech rivalry. I can already see the name for it - "TrainWreck."

As usual, this one has "the voices in your head don't count as reliable sources." But stay tuned.
