There is only one chance for the acc and time is running out. Tell Swofford to give himself up to the authorities.

FSU has beaten the SEC champ at least 8 times, and we don’t even play in the SEC, lol:

FSU beat the 1987 SEC champs 34-6
FSU beat the 1988 SEC champs 13-7
FSU beat the 1989 SEC champs 22-14
FSU beat the 1993 SEC champs 33-21
FSU beat the 1994 SEC champs 23-17
FSU beat the 1996 SEC champs 24-21
FSU beat the 2000 SEC champs 30-7
FSU beat the 2013 SEC champs 34-31

Give it up for the SEC, a conference which almost beat

This may actually ave some wheels to it…...Larry Williams, the very credible writer from “Tiger Illustrated”  that a ” A contact told me GT wants out”......


This is heating up big time.

I expect GT and N.C. State to be the two teams on Delany’s radar. Don’t think UVA and VT will break from each other, nor will Duke and Carolina.

Not convinced this happens though. Still a fair amount of traditionalists within the Big Ten that are very concerned about the loss of rivalry games. We’ll see. Definitely more to come here.

NC State to the Big 10? Are you serious? I could buy the SEC but the BIG 10? THey would not ever want NCSU.

The only conference that pretends to be more snobby than the ACC is the Big 10.

Hate to post something that actually has some credibility. Be careful what you believe.

Options are limited. If they think they can get UVA/VT or UNC/DUKE to split from each other, more power to them. I don’t see that though. Other than that, N.C. State and Kansas would probably be their targets for No. 16. This is eventually all going to end. If there’s not enough mutual interest, we might actually be done (for awhile, at least).

You seriously think that NC State is on the Big 10’s radar? Seriously? Come on man.

Neither party would be interested in that. For good reasons on both ends.

Kansas or Mizzou are at least plausible. GT too I guess although please tell me how Minnesota, Northwestern or Iowa games are gonna help GT with their problems.
If anything that alone sums up how stupid this all is. NC State in the Big 10? Hey anything can happen but I would laugh my ass off if it did.

NCSU and the Upper Midwest.
A marriage made in heaven.

Sadly, that’s basically realignment in a nutshell.

Nothing says Midwest football like North Jersey.
Nothing says Southern football like baseball-first Missourians.
Nothing says Pac-10 football like Mormons.

Most of these are shotgun Vegas weddings done without mutual love. They don’t make sense. They’re not good fits. For fans, it stinks. But it’s the lay of the land right now.

I think Delaney wants the Atlanta market, lots of B10 alums there. This would also squeeze ND a lot, which is Delaney’s ultimate goal or so it seems. They could pick up another school from NC, VA but the Atlanta market is the driver.

UNC and Duke are not joined. More likely UNC and UVa are. UNC’s AD recently sent out an email to supporters saying UNC would be in the ACC for the next 60 years, but followed that with UNC will keep their eyes open. All will hinge on Maryland’s exit fee. If it enables others to leave mark my words, and laugh if you want to… UNC will end up in the SEC. I have no doubt that’s how it will end if UNC leaves. I also will add the ACC will be over if that happens, because UNC is the keystone to the ACC. Deny that also if you care to, but it’s the god honest truth.
