    Why the hell not; I'll take a Virginia and a North Carolina school for the remaining 2. Chance to become a beast of a conference with some interesting match-ups, and breaks the ACC wide open along the way.

    Big 12 already has realized that splitting the pot with 10 is better than 12 or 14 or 16 UNLESS 11, 12, 13, 14 etc incrementally add value. Competitively - more than 10 is good IF we can go back to 8 conf games - but that seems unlikely so if we are only adding teams that "add value", then the big 12 only gets tougher right? Its pretty tough already - therefore I support a 12 team conference with divisions and championship - best case we make a field goal or two and sneak into the championship once or twice a decade. It almost happened, to happen again we need divisions.

    That's 2 days to talk about it with no info on there.

    Way to go, Clemson! Way to go! That really will stimulate the message board economy. More people could learn about simple publicity from this, if that's what they're looking for.

    The chatter on Tigerboard East seems to suggest that this is either:

    A) an academic announcement
    B) a tuition increase

    I don't see how either of those (especially the latter) warrant a press conference in which they've invited alumni to view...

    Interesting that Clemson seems to have a new football website that hasn't been unveiled yet.

    Coming Soon - the new ClemsonTigers.com

    CW is still gone, right? Perfect time for a Clemson to Big 12 announcement

    Are you suggesting that the press conference will be to announce...a new website? That might be cool if it were 1996.

    No...but a new re-vamped website to be released on Friday with Clemson to Big 12 announcement would certainly drive traffic.

    I think the dominoes will fall quickly once one school leaves the ACC.

    Clemson also canceled several home and away series today.

    Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips confirmed that CU and Ole Miss had mutually agreed to terminate their nonconference home-and-home series, set for 2015-16. In addition, Phillips said that Clemson’s home-and-home with Oklahoma State, tentatively set for 2019-20, was also being cancelled.
    It is a direct result of the schedule pressures applied by the ACC’s new football schedule, expected to go into place for 2013

    Clemson fans think it's an announcement for their university's fundraising goals.
