TX to the big 12... *cough* I mean big 10 is not something I have heard from any writers. Wouldn't the BTN pretty much null & void this move... As Texas can't keep their LHN... I don't see the Big 10 as a player in anything unless OK goes to the SEC, which is probably not gonna happen. If that does happens... The Big 10 will then possibly raid the Big 12 to keep up with SEC to make 14. Mizzou & Kansas the most likely candidates then not TX & Notre Dame as they won't be interested. But more than likely the Big 10 will look to the Big East schools as they make more academic sense. Think Pitt or Rutgers.

I don't see Notre Dame going to ANY conference unless 4 sixteen team conferences are created and they all succeed from the NCAA/BCS and create their own playoff and FORCE Notre Dame to be a part of a conference to get in the playoff... Otherwise they are staying Indy.

I think TX is either Big 12 remains, Indy, ACC, or PAC 12... the ONLY way they go to Big 10 is OK going SEC and Notre Dame goes to big 10 first and is allowed to keep their individual tv deal, thus setting a precedent for them to keep theirs... None of which I see happening.

I didn't realize everyone on a public forum needed "credentials" to offer opinions...
(edit) it helps to have some explanation of why you think Maryland or Missouri brings more to the SEC than Virginia Tech or Clemson does. (edit)

A reminder here to keep it civil- no flaming,or trolling, or accusations of either of these.

Since we have been regulated, lets play nice.

First off I don't think ANY of them are ideal... It's like picking the avg girl out of a room full of ugly ones.

Mizzou is the best choice in this bunch because of
1) There will be no backlash for taking an ACC school
2) They have top tv market
3) Academically they are sound... not great but sound
4) They have the size, enough alumni and infrustructure to assimilate into the SEC culture although they do not fit now. But once in they will adapt.


Maryland is the next best choice because
1) They have a top tv market
2) Good academics
3) Great Basketball program (the next most profitable sport)

VA Tech is next because
1) Good Football program
2) Good Academics

Clemson does not offer anything. They don't offer TV and their program is vastly overrated. They have decent academics but that is all...


Based on the above... VA Tech & Clemson would not help the SEC secure a NEW and much bigger TV deal in the immediate future. This means that the schools would have to split what they already have which would make their cut smaller with no potential to get more in sight. Sure in 10-20 years VA Tech & Clemson could become such national powerhouses that would warrant a bigger TV deal but that's a BIG risk to take and a long time to dilute your guaranteed money for these schools.

Mizzou would make it more of a surer bet. In addition, Mizzou could also become a national power just as the other va tech & clemson could be. Its just smarter money to go with them given those choices. Same for Maryland but again less likely. Maryland, VA Tech, & Clemson are all ACC schools as well... raiding that conference is not a public relations hit the SEC wants to take unless it has a sure fire bet as in Florida State. That's the only school the SEC wants to raid the ACC for...

Look, if this werent about money and just football... I think the SEC should get VA Tech over everyone except FSU & Oklahoma. I have always been a fan VA Tech and Beamer. I think the VA area would be good for recruiting in the SEC. But...

after weighing the TV Markets and backlash of grabbing them which in turn affects longterm stability of the conference, i think its a bad move for the SEC. I don't think it would kill the SEC if they did grab them either. I just think its a better move to grab Mizzou.
