Why would we NOT have made a push for the SEC if we would have been left out of the first and second wave of ACC expansion? As far as I'm concerned, if we didn't attempt to call the SEC the moment we got the MIA-SU-BC news in 2003, it was dereliction of duty. Now if the SEC turned us down, then fine. But I'd much have preferred the SEC to the process we followed to get in the ACC.
Maroon, I remember the talk on this board 10 years ago and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but I think I started it. Before that I had never heard VT and SEC mentioned in the same breath.
Then TennStud and a few other SEC fans started posting here and at the time Hokie fans seemed pretty flattered that some of us would want to welcome you.
The VT to the SEC talk started on this board and spread like wildfire. I sent a message to DandyDon.com and the board owner reposted it. He agreed with me that VT and Texas A&M should be in the SEC. After that the idea took on a life of its own until everyone was talking about it.
I am not as hopeful as I once was, but have not despaired.
