Clemson and/or FSU may be shopping or playing to leave the ACC, but I am starting to get the feeling that this is a big bunch of nothing….
What is the one thing that has occurred during these rumors?.......It has taken the typical college football fan from around the nation during an extremely light period and have had these same fans glued to TV, radios shows, college fan websites and the purchasing of sports magazines to be part of the process!...And that is how we are being played! The Expansion talk is great media and to a degree I think we are being played. Look how much time we have spent here just on this subject! Southern Pigskin alone has greatly benefited from this with the spike in new members and increase of activity on their site…...Now SPS deserves the increase in people because they run a great website and take outstanding care of their members when issues come up so in the case of this one website, it is a win-win for both the fans and the SPS team…..but jackals like ESPN also profit from this and that is the last thing they need.
I just don’t see how Clemson and FSU can both get enough help from the Big 12 Members to assist with 40 million dollars of buyout money to the ACC…FSU is flat broke and I don’t think Clemson is in a hurry to come up with that kinda of loot with the money that they are throwing to coaches and facility…Also, the more I keep reading all this TV money stuff, I am just not as convinced the net financial gain is there.
The Big 12 would be great to have Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and WVU on the schedule, but I am having an increasingly hard time seeing that occur….
I think the most like think will be for the ACC to try to win the Notre Dame Sweepstakes and try to reel in one more school like a Louisville and have a 16 team “mega conference”...This makes the most sense even if it is not what the fan bases from both schools want to see happen.
Amen…glad you are coming around.
Funny that Clem and Sem can’t realize it. But it is a done deal…right. And Notre Dame is going to the Big 12.
Beano Cook said recently on the ESPNU podcast that it might make sense for FSU to go (which I am starting to believe since they have backed themselves into a corner), but for Clemson it would be the worst mistake since Hitler invaded Russia.
But of course he and everyone who doesnt buy internet nonsense are dumb right Clem? He knows nothing about college football. Anonymous internet posters are the real insiders. All going to plan.
