The ACC has been generating big headlines recently with reports about the so-called ‘Magnificent 7’ schools looking to potentially leave.

There was another report about the ACC expanding west, and they reportedly looked at Oregon and Washington as potential options.

On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin talks about why that move is unlikely to happen from Oregon/UW’s end.

Also, the money apparently doesn’t work out from the ACC’s end of things–and there’s data from this past season to indicate why.

On another note, Justin Wilcox enters year 6 at the helm for the Cal Golden Bears this year, with an expected win total of just 4.5 (2nd-lowest in the Pac-12).

They are an appealing “over” bet given a solid offseason, but their schedule is not the most favorable.
