Reading between the lines here, their outgoing president alludes to the importance of ensuring a seat at the big boy table, recognizing the future relevance of the university is at stake. While being fairly candid here, there are always things you can't say explicitly: They would consider a move to the SEC with Clemson if the right offer came along.

If the NCAA was disbanded and a new super conference was created, they could be.

Programs with no in state competition are happy with the new alignment. They need some competition.....now.

A 2036 GoR contract seems like the end of that conversation...for now.

Clemson and FSU! Do it!

Really, it would make for a much stronger conference.

There might be something here...

Outside of OU, tu and the SEC, I think most teams and conferences want a different outcome than OU+tu to SEC.

You KNOW conferences and teams across the country are angling for alternative scenarios (PAC12, BIG10, ACC, etc)

A lot can happen before this deal is done.

But Oragator assured me that the SEC wouldn't do that to Florida.

I never understand wanting all the best teams in one conference. People realize that someone is going to lose and no longer be one of the best teams, right? Conferences need vanderbilts and wake forests and Kansases. You need teams to lose in all conferences.

If Florida State was added soon, how long until Florida State and A&M were matched up?
ESPN would enjoy playing up Coach Fisher for that game.

That would be awesome.

It will definitely be the Game of the Week sponsored by Joe's Crab Shack.

Even mute the TV if watching a FSU game. More annoying that Rocky Top.

That's why t.u. is being welcomed in.

But 4 more will be and FSU and Clemson are next. ESPN and Fox are now merging their inventory into one investment versus too many schools getting money they don't deserve and wouldn't bring in enough should that school make the playoffs.

Because it's not NCAA college football anymore. You either bring in money or you don't. A NFL franchise that doesn't bring in enough revenue doesn't get invited to stay in the league. This is going to 2 super conferences at some point whether we like it or not. ESPN and Fox are also merging their investments, at least that's what ESPN is doing now and nothing illegal about it.

I want Vtech and a NC school. Lots of people living in those states and would be great adds.

Big10 and and PAC12 combine. SEC grabs Clemson, FSU, Miami, Virginia, and some others. You end up with two super conferences.

Clemson, more than anyone else, is deserving of a seat at the SEC table. They're a great fit.

Can we boot out the worst performers? Tenn and Vandy? SC? t.u?

You cut the dead weight.

You move OU & Sips to SEC
KU, KSU, Bay, ISU, OkieSt, WV, Tech, and TCU die.

You add Clemson & FSU to SEC
Teams like NCSt, BC, Pitt, VaTech, Va, Wake, GaTech, Louisville, and Syracuse die.
Sure and then college football ratings drop 25%.

The ACC is either going to up
Their game or lose teams to the Big. If ND (not ACC member) and Ga Tech go Big then the poaching will begin. As far as I'm
Concerned va Tech and Clemson should be top targets. Maybe Nc st. I guess FSU and NC. They can have Uva and Duke and Miami imo. I know NC and Duke are probably a package

12 team playoff guarantees SEC 4-5 spots if they expand to 18 or 20. Plus the SEC will have it's own playoff. But eventually, if they keep expanding, they will need to ensure some sort of parity is being implemented. Similar to how most of the NFL operates, besides the Texans.

Already at that with 16 teams. Guaranteed.

You do remember FSU was glad to get rid of Jimbo? His teams were losing and recruiting was in the toilet.

How do we rate ahead of UT & tu? Both those schools have won MNC since you were born, Texas A&M hasn't won 1 since ANYBODY on these boards was born.

The SEC B1G ACC and Pac are the only viable conferences in the short term...

its not hard to imagine everyone consolidated into two conferences within a decade: SEC and B1G...cfb's version of the NFC and AFC...

also not hard to imagine squeezing out the NCAA
