I don't think it seems all that implausible.
Realistically speaking there are only a handful of viable replacement options and allowing the uncertainty to linger only encourages other current ACC schools to explore their options. It's not like either side is in a position to be super picky, nobody is leaving one of the other power conferences to join the ACC and only Louisville has garnered even a passing interest by one of the other major conferences.
