Notice that we aren't included in those rumors? It suggests to me that once conferences get above 16 members, scheduling becomes unwieldy - especially in the SEC's opinion. If so, then there are two "life rafts" in the SEC - assuming B10 doesn't want us. Not to mention that the SEC is far more desirable for us culturally and geographically than B10.
I conclude that our administration was irresponsible, reckless and idiotically myopic by not pursuing the SEC during the time that the SEC accepted Mizzou. No one on this board can credibly argue that the SEC wouldn't have preferred us to Mizzou. If we were preferred to Mizzou, then we could have easily gotten in the SEC.
Guess what people?! UNC is trying their best to burn us. Will they be effective? I don't know. If our administration had gotten off their asses and had some vision, we wouldn't have to consider this!
Any of you people that said "I like the ACC in its present form" want to try to argue otherwise?
I suspect there's a backdoor agreement that UVA goes B10, so that VT ends up in the SEC, but those whores at Carolina will try their damndest to bring along Duke. Things have to fall just right for us to end up in a good place. It didn't need to be this way!
