Actually see that crazy.. The university presidents are in love with acc academics that not Any others get close. Highest academic performance . Total balanced sports programs right priorities . Exactly different priorities of the sec and big 12 both generally have the number of top academic programs
after a brief survey of various message boards....looks pretty bogus....
No real talk out of Texas, they have led the way in the past on information leaks....fsu folks don't see it happening, but many would welcome it....few clemson folks have gone off the deep end.....and it looks mostly like a pack of Wva fans starting some wild rumors based on what the would like to see happen.
Check out the expansion board. Good post by Freddyburg on FSU and CU going to Big XII. Not happening.
A 12 team B12 with FSU + Clemson is far superior to the ACC. Plus, Doak would be full for OK, OK State, Texas, Clemson, and FSU would still play Miami. Take FSU and Clemson out of your comparison when comparing the two leagues.
Not by me, per se. I just found some good posts and cut/pasted them. If anybody else wants to delve further into the mega-thread on The Hive, be my guest. =^)
No trees were harmed in the making of this post. However, billions of electrons were horribly inconvenienced.
OK State has had one really good season and a couple two loss conf seasons over the past 10 years if my quick scan is correct. How much would you base your future on that school being a top 10 caliber team?
Odds are FSU/Clem might only see one of TU/OU at home every other year. How many games with FSU has VT seen in 'burg since 2004? They don't really need either school to fill their stadium, it's nice to have but not necessary imo.
Miami won't play Clemson OOC. That ain't gonna happen from either school's perspective.
And remember, for picking up one of tu/OU, you also get matchups with the other B12 schools which will offer not much with respect to fan interest (best matchups are "local" - always been that way, always will be). You know, TT, Baylor, TCU, KU, ISU, WVU...
