I wouldn't start throwing babies into the air just yet, Ruy.
The only reason the Republicans didn't win in Virginia yesterday was because, as they have so often done elsewhere, they nominated a hard-core Bible-thumper who gave the Tea Partiers heart palpitations but drove away moderate Republican and independent voters.
If they'd instead nominated a sensible, mainstream, business-oriented, moderately conservative candidate, they'd have won easily.
I'm a lifelong registered Republican but I wouldn't have voted for a
fundamentalist tool like Cuccinelli. Without voters like me, the
Republicans can't win in Virginia.
Eventually they're going to get tired of losing winnable elections and they'll work up the courage to tell the Tea Party to go **** themselves.
The sooner the better.

@Roggespierre LOL!!!! That's utterly ridiculous. The ACC came out WAAAAAAAY ahead when it traded Louisville for Maryland. The ACC is also adding Syracuse, Pitt and Notre Dame in 2014. To suggest that the ACC will lose it's status as a power conference if Maryland leaves is patently absurd. The ACC isn't going anywhere. In fact, the ACC has, by a fairly significant margin, the largest TV footprint of any conference in the country.

Wait until the first cable or satellite TV provider decides to go to an "a la carte" programming model as opposed to the current "package" model where subscribers are forced to pay for a channel regardless of whether or not they ever watch it or not. When that happens ... and it will because it's what consumers want ... the The Big 10 Network's revenues are going to fall off a cliff and the leagues presidents are going to realize that Jim Delany talked them into massively watering down their product by adding two schools like Maryland and Rutgers.
