The Supreme Court is expected to rule this week on affirmative action at colleges and universities, but one Virginia school is already scaling back its academic programs for minorities. Virginia Tech has altered 16 race-conscious programs in the past few months. It is also discontinuing a privately funded study abroad program for black students and forcing open a spot in the veterinary college previously reserved for blacks. The moves were made on the advice of Attorney General Jerry Kilgore's office, which warned the university Board of Visitors last year that they could be personally liable if the school's policies were challenged in court.

ACC Commissioner John Swofford says that his league can still get expansion plans finalized by the end of this next week, but after yesterday's conference call with league presidents, the fourth in 12 days, the league seems further from a consensus on what to vote for. So, if expansion does in fact happen, the most likely scenario involves Virginia Tech, Miami, and either BC or Syracuse. But sources say that NC State was opposed to Tech in yesterday's discussions, joining Duke and Carolina. The next conference call should take place Tuesday or Wednesday. If ACC expansion fails, other sources indicate that Florida State, Miami, Clemson and Georgia Tech would explore jumping ship to the SEC, but that appears unlikely.
