Any truth at all concerning Clemson/Florida State to the Big 12 in the next few years?

Sounds like it would be a major stretch because of odd traditions/geography (West Virginia anyone?) but if the money is good I guess I could *possibly* see it happening.

What say you?

I'm guessing ScoPro is thinking they're just too small to build the sizable revenue that the Big 12 is demanding to try and keep up with the PAC/Big10/SEC.

I'd be all for making a South-Central Conference (SCC) as I've mentioned in other threads, but there is no doubt that a solely Oklahoma/Texas conference would diminish our credibility on a national stage.

The Oklahoma schools (OU/OSU) and the Texas schools (UT/T-Tech/TCU/Baylor) need the state schools from Kansas/Iowa and now West Virginia to keep enough revenue stream in our conference. Otherwise it would fold tomorrow. (This may happen anyway if OU/Texas finally decide to pony up and go out west to the PAC here in the not too distant future.)

Interesting article might explain why Clemson/Florida State would consider leaving the ACC in the next several years:

This is what the Big 12 could look like in a few years if we just got out of this realignment stuff with everything going our way:
Big 12 East
Cincinnati
Clemson
FSU
Iowa State
Kansas
Louisville
West Virginia

Big 12 West
Baylor
Kansas State
Oklahoma
Oklahoma State
Texas
Texas Christian University
Texas Tech

Pretty salty lookin' league.

You are correct on all counts, IMO.

That would be a pretty good basketball conference. too.

SMU & Houston don't add much, as UT & OU already have the DFW market, and UT the Houston area.

Throw in baseball and this Big 12 could dominate.

FSU and Clemson baseball along with TCU, Texas, Baylor, and both Oklahoma schools would be an excellent baseball league.

It would be right up there for the best all-around conference for the Big 3 sports: football, basketball, and baseball.

Good old baseless rumors.

If Clemson and the Noles move anywhere it'd be towards the SEC.
