    Clemson to the Big 12???

    Twitter is smoking tonight with rumors.

    FSU & Ga. Tech to follow...

    I do believe conference re-alignment is once again upon us. This time we're on the good side of things

    If this wasn't a site you had to sign up for a free trial, I'd consider reading it. Until then, nothing to see here.

    Cory Fravel ‏@CoryFravel - Cemetery-Hill.com
    To be clear nothing has been signed obviously but "From all indications the board of trustees will approve"
    Today multiple sources have confirmed to our friends at Cemetery-Hill.com that Clemson and the BigXII have "agreed in principle" to Clemson joining the conference in July 2013. While we cannot confirm that the BigXII or the Clemson Board of Trustees have officially voted on the measure, we believe any vote at this point would be considered a formality. We will update with more information as we receive it. Who's ready to join the ACF on the official Tobacco Road Farewell Tour?

    Re: Clemson to the Big 12???

    Either somebody did a great job spreading a viral rumor or we really do have another team (and likely more) joining the Big 12. This next week we may see a whole new Big 12 announced.

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    With the recent SEC connection you'd have to think 4 to put both at 14, but is it 3 from ACC and Louisville to not create an all out massacre with one move?

    Re: Clemson to the Big 12???

    Kinda looking at the Clemson boards and I see this dandy of a post:
    I have listed (in my opinion) the most marketable football teams in order from the Big 12 and the ACC (less FSU and Clemson)

    Which teams would rather see us play in Death Valley?

    Va Tech or Texas Texas
    Miami or Oklahoma Miami
    GT or Ok State Tech
    UNC or West Va WVU
    NC State or Baylor State
    MD or Texas Tech Push
    UVA or TCU TCU
    WF or Kansas State WF
    BC or Kansas Push
    Duke or Iowa State Duke
    Someone replied with the bold...
    Apparently they don't think very highly of us out there.

    Re: Clemson to the Big 12???

    I believe that we are going to see some big dominoes fall this week in expansion. The big 12 SEC deal is just too much clout on the other conferences. We should have our picks of the other conferences. Still tough to see the Big 12 getting into bed with the enemy (SEC), but by doing so we have really solidified the four major conferences for football. Everyone else will want to join into one of the 4 with the Big 12 having the most open spots.


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    LMAO at Wake Forest > Kansas State

    If there was a "challenge" type thing between the leagues I honestly think the Big 12 may have swept them a few times.

    I have a feeling rivalries played a bit of a factor in the second poster's picks.

    It seems to me that Clemson is like ISU in that their most hated rival by far is really their in state, out of conference rival.

    They'd get over any lesser rivalries they might lose as fast as we got over Neb/Mizzou.

    Their schedule would often be a lot like ours. 9 B12 games, maybe in ISU's division even, in state rival from another major conference, 2 open non conf games.
