VT will be reactive and whether you like that or not, that's the way it is. VT wants to stay in a viable ACC, VT wants the current ACC to stay as is.
Once it becomes apparent that the ACC is not going to stay as is, they will assess the conference and any other opportunities that come up.
The SEC isn't going to just take the first team that bangs on the door, they don't have to. The VT admin is aware of what's going on, they don't have their heads planted up their rear ends. There is no need for us to be on the phone with the SEC and there won't be a need until it is apparent FSU and/or CLEMSON are leaving.
Hope I am also, not sure anyone except a select view no exactly what is going on in this entire mess, not just at VT but all schools involved and to be honest I think most is still in the TBD phase for all involved..
