    VT to Big10

    Just heard this from a big time Clemson booster. Not saying its true, but that is the buzz in SC. He said CU, FSU both will receive more $ in new ACC and VT is not happy. He said UCONN will replace us. Wasn't too upset about it. He also believes Vandy will be #16.

    Don't shoot the messenger, likely not true but thought I'd pass it along.

    Any indication from the Clemson booster where he got this info?

    Thing is, no one knows how much money exactly each school is getting.
    Then the question becomes why would CU and FSU get the most, what makes them more special than the rest of the league?

    No trees were harmed in the making of this post. However, billions of electrons were horribly inconvenienced.

    Payola for not jumping to the B12? Is that possible?

    I really hope not. I would lose all love for the college game if that was the case.

    If true losing VT in the ACC would be a massive blow for the conference and I imagine the ACC would not be stable after that happened. I imagine it wouldn't stop at just one team.

    Well maybe the goldendomers themselves should join the football ACC to do their part to stabilize the conference.

    Maybe it's because Tech's football staff recently hired 2 Big 10 alums in Scot Loeffler (Michigan) and Aaron Moorehead (Illinois) and our AD is a Penn State grad? Maybe our new president will come from the Big 10 too? I won't believe it until the Dude says it's a done deal.
