We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.

Yea. They brought their A-game to the SEC for sure. I would love for Mizzou to be dropped and for FSU to be added but if not us hopefully someone else if they aren't going to compete in football.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
Our mens hoops team is a steaming pile right now, but the rest appear on solid footing, at least until conference play starts in baseball.
was really hoping mizzou if anything would be #2 in sec baskettball
They lost Anderson who was very successful there, they will come back at some point.
Bucket loads of hoops talent up there, mostly thug but damn, they can ball.
i'll hold my expectations till it happens
As far as the SEC move most folks that were around for the last go round have been dreaming of it ever since.
We were blocked for selfish reasons, I guess wanting to leave is also a selfish reason but the SWC was crumbling and we should have split with the pigs.
My gawd that was a great and heated rival, now it is a game.
Hoping that one also comes back but I doubt it with LSU back on the slate.
A&M has plenty of history with SEC schools and it is not a city, the town exists for A&M and when its football season its football season.
I don't know if FSU, Clemson, or GT would be invited. South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida would have something to say about it
think about the annual usc-unc game. would be epic
Onto expansion, I would target UNC and USF.
Some may think this is crazy but I do not.
You mixed up your letters for your Florida team I think.
if i was A&M i would want to play texas every year, but at the same time if they didnt i wouldnt worry about it. it is only hurting them
If ND joined the ACC fully then the ACC would stabilize. Adding ND would allow the ACC to renegotiate their TV contract.
I have mixed feelings.
I believe the game should be played because it is football and this is Texas, no reason not to play.
Its a tradition and should be done.
The other part of me says I just dont care, if you dont want to play us thats fine. Its OK.
The B10 wants to add two more teams before they renegotiate their TV deal. Preliminary conversations have been had with all of UNC, Duke, UVA, GT, Miami and Syracuse. As soon as the Maryland litigation is resolved, a major push will be made to pull two of them. UNC is #1 on the wish list, but they are probably the hardest to flip. If the B10 can't convince UNC fairly quickly, they will move on to the others with the goal of getting something done in the next 12-18 months.

If the Big10 pushes that early it will set off everything.
yes and the next move may tell us what will probably happen overall
just ready for it to be over
The question is what is the endgame for the North Carolina and Virginia schools? If they reject the B10 and the B10 moves on and takes, say, GT and Miami, will the SEC take all four North Carolina schools? Will it take at least three (leaving WF behind)? Same with UVA and VT ... will the SEC take both? If not, the North Carolina and Virginia schools could be left in an ACC that has a very ugly footprint.
idk man. if unc wont break they probably survive. if nd joins them in all sports i think it cements the conference. if unc leaves all hell will break loose. small case senario is ya'll get gt and another and we get ncst and maybe vt. they might still make it then....maybe. then it is in fsu's court
ND will never join the ACC in all sports. It's the same flawed logic the BE held onto until it was too late. ND gains nothing by joining the ACC in football and ND is not going to join the ACC to save the ACC. ND couldn't care less about the ACC.
Edit: If the B10 takes GT and Miami, it won't be long before the B12 comes for FSU and that will be all she wrote.
If the SEC was smart they'd wait until Deloss Dodds' contract is up in 2014. Hope Texas chooses a more willing AD, then go after the motherload of Texas and OU. That would be an awesome conference.
Considering the new playoff system ND NEEDS to join a conference for football. That extra championship game is huge for getting into the top 4 at the end of the season and staying competitive. They will make moves to join for football in the next 8 months. Just watch.
i wouldn't mind that. problem is that we already have a texas school in A&M and oklahoma, while an awesome football name, doesn't offer much market. it is unlike if we add fsu we seal off any chance at florida. maybe i am wrong
I hate the expansion plain and simple. On another subject, I don't think ND will ever join a conference, mostly because of ther ego and also they don't have to. Hate them all you want, but they can single handedly make it on their own financially. The only way they could be forced to join is if the new playoff black balled them. It won't though because the powers that be are too greedy to pass up the absurd amount of Money ND would bring to the party. They flirt with conferences for fun but they're not joining. The only other possible chance is if a conference is desperate enough and offers ND like an 80/20 split of the conference money pot, and even then I'm not sure they would go. Just my thoughts
Yeah, sure. ND needs to play more ACC schools to boost its profile with the selection committee. Keep telling yourself that.
