Should the ACC seek out a scheduling alliance with the SEC or Big 10?

Jeffrey Fann asks the question and says that the ACC should try it "to ensure quality Out of Conference games for the ACC teams." My view: I don't see getting quality out-of-conference games being a problem. If the ACC has had an issue in this area in recent years, it is that it plays more quality out-of-conference games than some other conferences and gets no reward for it. If the new playoff setup guarantees that out-of-conference or overall schedule strength will be a major component and can find a way to reasonably measure teams that lose to good opponents against teams that just beat up on weak opponents, then maybe this is a good idea. But in the current system, the incentives really are not there for the ACC to make its non-conference schedule even tougher.
