((((NAT SOUND OF FOOTBALL PLAYING))
Football season is still months away and already the university and its team are tackling a potential problem. [QUOTE]
In a statement released Friday night, President Steger says quote Coach Beamer advised me that simply the uncertainty of the future of the BIG EAST is negatively affecting football recruiting.
Steger goes on to say failing to join a viable conference could result in millions of dollars in lost revenue each year.
Steger believes that could lead to a 300 percent increase in student fees as well as cuts to several sports teams.
It could also result in significant problems with compliance with Title IX programs for women athletes. ((NAT SOUND OF VOTE 3:28:06))
Long before Tech's Board of Visitors agreed to start negotiating with the ACC, Steger says he was as surprised as anyone by the expansion process. [QUOTE]
He says quote we made clear that our first preference was to keep the BIG EAST intact, but if ACC expansion was inevitable, Virginia Tech would be a good fit.

Steger didn't always see it that way.
When the original ACC expansion plan excluded Virgina Tech, Steger told reporters on June 8th that if Virginia Tech received an offer today, we would not accept it.
In his statement, [QUOTE] Steger defends those comments saying quote the context of that discussion is now lost, but at the time we truly thought that would be the appropriate course of action.
Things changed Tuesday evening when Steger says he got a call from Commissioner Swofford inviting Tech to begin discussions.
The next day, Tech's Board of Visitors uniamously agreed to begin negotiations.
