    The beginning of a house of cards falling?

    When Maryland, a founding ACC member leaves, it absolves FSU of the guilt of ruining the conference. The next card could be FSU and Clemson to the B12.

    Now here we are, with our antiquated dreams of the ACC, holding the bag in a second rate conference.

    We were wrong as a school to turn down the SEC. It was a short sided, narrow, and backward thinking decision and it is typical of this school. We tried to so hard to get into the good old boys club, look what it has gotten us.

    You can't turn down something that was never offered.

    there is no one grain of reason to believe anything like that will happen.

    There was no grain of reasoning to suggest that Maryland would leave.

    Yet they could be gone. You don't hear about the evidence until it's too late. VT was foolish to shut the door on the SEC.

    Yes, we were, and now the ACC is going to lose its second-largest school, and its biggest presence in the DC metro area. If FSU wanted to leave before, now they are on the phone with U-Haul. We need to try for an SEC invite now, and pay the 50 million.

    Right but how is FSU getting 50 mil to leave? Or Clemson? MD are lucky that they have their Under Armor, FSU and Clemson do not have that. We will see but very unrealistic. The exit fee is also predicated on % of the operating budget of ACC, which means it will only climb up every year.

    I know a lot of 'Nole boosters. This enables the folks in Tally that want an excuse to get out. They're delusional, but they really believe the Big 12 will make their lives better. Maryland leaving isn't the problem, Florida State is.
