Also read that Clemson and Fsu wanted a revote to get Wvu into Acc but Unc/Duke wanted Syracuse and Pitt. Meaning they want a basketball conference. Makes sense that Fsu, Clemson, VT and Miami(football programs) want to look somewhere else.
I hope this early info leakage doesnt change what the Bcs or Espn or Acc will do to keep this from happening.
I believe it is the networks that are driving this bus. The BCS wants the most it can get and same with the networks.

FSU, Clemson, Miami, and VT demanded a re-vote, and even thought they had persuaded Wake Forest to vote yes. Once the re-vote happened Wake bowed down to UNC/Duke/NC State and voted no again. FSU actually went public about being pissed with the additions over WVU.
WVU fans were happy because we wanted Big 12 all along because its a football conference and not a basketball conference.
Talk about an exciting and major upgrade. Imagine replacing aggy with FSU as a rivalry game and opening Florida to more UT recruiting. Bring it on.
? For Brian E and others that seem to have a good grasp on the situation.
Is this a correct assumption as of what we know right now?
A)new Bcs deal that will allow ND to get special circumstances and if so ND will remain Independent(in football at least and might join a conference for other sports) and then allow Fsu/Clemson to leave Acc.
1)for the Big 12.
2)Sec could say well if Acc is breaking down why dont we just take Fsu and assuming the next logical choice would be VT(but you can place a couple if other Acc teams as #2).
B)new Bcs deal that doesnt give ND a special clause and forces ND to join a conference. ND could choose btw the 2 most likely destinations, Acc and Big 12.
1)if ND chooses Big 12, then many other programs will want to come to Big 12 to make it 12, 14 or 16 teams.
2)If ND chooses Acc, they become stable and Fsu/Clemson dont leave and Big 12 stays at 10 teams. I dont see Lousiville + 1 other team likely unless its a big program.
Is this a fair assumption? If so, I don't really like either of the #2 options. Thanks!
How about another option.
Take FSU and Clemson to weaken ACC and improve Big 12. If no special playoff clause for ND, with FSU/Clemson gone from ACC, ND will want to join Big 12 over B1G.
that would be ideal. What will Acc do to stop them from going? I hope they dont care for them and wand more basketball schools but doubt it.
Sec would love to block this deal, and what would Sec do stop this deal? Invite Fsu themselves?
Two more mouths to feed...
