ACC Officially Welcomes Louisville as Newest Member

(AP) - Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich just smiled looking at the housewarming package the Atlantic Coast Conference laid out — it confirmed his belief the Cardinals made the right move by joining the ACC.

There was the crystal-and-wood championship trophy the school aims to win, a backdrop featuring the Cardinal and league logos, and a black-and-white welcome plaque.

After bouncing around in three other leagues over 17 years, Tuesday marked Louisville's official entry into the ACC. The Cardinals are replacing Maryland after it joined the Big Ten along with Rutgers.

In a news conference that included ACC Commissioner John Swofford and Louisville President James Ramsey, Jurich said, "We're not the biggest, we're not the best, but we're going to work our butts off to make you very, very proud."
