Pulling ND for everything but football will do long term damage. Just like it did for the Big East. If the BIG offered that to ND they would leave the ACC so quickly your head would spin.

Could? It is all rumors, none which have come true for 2 years now. Same story never pans out. The last "raiding" happened to the Big 12, when rumor was OK/Texas were heading to the Pac 12. But hey, deny history...


1 team leaving to me doesn't equal a full raiding of a conference like you suggested. A full raiding is what appeared to be happening to the Big 12 when Colorado and Nebraska got pulled out. At that time, OK/Texas were extended offers by the Pac 12. Had they left, the conference would not exist today.


I don't want my school going anywhere. I live in ACC country so if my team went to another conference that would means less times I could see them near my home. Unlike you, I prefer conferences to keep their regional ties and rivalries.


Far from it. We raided the Big East again and have pulled in one of the most historic programs (Notre Dame i.e. the one Big 10 couldn't get). Guess what... even the "analysts" aren't rumoring crap at this point.


If anyone is on watch, it is the Big 12. If the Big 12 can't get schools from east of the Mississippi River, I don't see your school WVU staying long. Think SDST and Boise St to the Big East. Schools will eventually give up on this "new" landscape as gas/other costs ramp up. Revenue from ESPN/Affliates can only go so high. Television is slowly moving to ala carte. Ala carte hurts these deals as there is no more guaranteed revenue.


Again, I like my team's situation. I get to see them play multiple times each year without having to track back to Tallahassee (which at least a day drive).
Lots of ACC teams have expressed a willingness to leave and plenty of tried. Here is the fact the ACC is not respected football wise and they make little money. THe rumors you refuse to believe in have turned out correct. Last year you were adamant that no team would leave the ACC and it was strong. Now a team has left and the wolves are circling and you have been talking about how FSU could join the SEC, which is not going to happen.

Like I said I am sorry you dont like the situation. The ACC is no longer viable. The Big 12 could be in this position in a few years, but right now the ACC is in seriously trouble, not the Big 12. My fear is down the road even after getting sloppy thirds with the ACC other conferences will move on the Big 12. Doesnt change the fact that the ACC is going to get raided within days or a year or two.

Actually they'd play 3rd fiddle behind the Oklahoma schools.

I'd like Mizzou, but that's probably not a realistic option, so #17 would probably be Georgia Tech and some possibilities for #18 might include Kansas or Duke.
I suspect both UNC and UVA have declined B1G's offer, which is why B1G was forced to settle on Rutgers.

The ACC will remain viable because the SEC is the only conference most ACC schools are interested in joining.

Lol, apparently not. SEC, B1G, even the Big 12. Hell the PAC probably looks good for a bunch. They will take what they can. When your boat is sinking you sometimes can't ride a luxury cruiser to safety.

It's quite possible that they declined the offer when it came late last year. However circumstances may be changing, particularly if/when Maryland gets that exit fee lowered and other conferences start making overtures towards ACC schools.

Hey it's not ACC fans that are lighting up Twitter and message boards about conference realignment. Quite frankly, I can't blame you for wanting to pick apart the ACC, especially after the ACC placed five schools (FSU, Miami, Clemson, Carolina and VaTech) in ESPN's top 25 2013 recruiting class ranking, second only to SEC, which had 10 schools in the top 25.

The litigation will be locked up in state and federal courts for years. That'll give the ACC the time it needs to put out a better football product, with some schools being on par with the best of the SEC.
