    VT in discussions with SEC

    Per VT athletic director can't link on my phone but blowing up on Twitter. ACC going down. I think these WV guys may be right this time.

    Quick - call FSU, Duke, UNC and Miami! Best of the ACC in both sports. Hurry Bowlsby!

    Re: VT in discussions with SEC

    Of course they are. SEC wants North Carolina and Virginia presence and this surprises absolutely nobody that has paid any amount of attention. The real question is whether the SEC gets UNC or NCST to go with VT.

    I don't know if "blowing up" is what I'd call it...I see 3 tweets, including the original one which was at TheDudeofWV.

    @TheClubhouseKB#Hokies AD Jim Weaver says there "may be potential interest" in talking with the #SEC about future membership.

    @HokiesJournal I have access to the audio, and got the quote from my producer. Can't imagine it needs much more context.

    Is there any truth to that shaggybevo discussion about the TV networks wanting 3 20-team conferences?

    No way. (Unless Pac-12 kicks out Utah & Colorado then merges with Big 12 )

    Re: VT in discussions with SEC

    So all these teams are going to conferences where they have no chance at success in ANY sport for a few more dollars. What sport does Va Tech win in the SEC? What does Rutgers win at in the Big 10? How do Mizzou fans feel right now? That and you (ADs and admins) are taking away almost all local/regional interest and rivalries in the process. This is turning college athletics to a dark side where ticket sales wane and overall interest goes away. At the end of the day alot of people are making alot of assumptions about fan interest over the long haul. Pro sports are national - to a degree. College teams can't function on the same level - yet here we go.

    While I'm indifferent towards superconferences, as long as at the end of the day ISU belongs to one, that's all that matters to me.

    Yeah, it will basically be the NFL. Play your division and a team or two from the other division once every 6 years. This is stupid but it's what it is. I don't like the fact we may play UT and OU only once in a great while. This will hurt our Texas recruiting. Hope additions come from FLA and open that up a little more but there's a chance that aven that team would only play us every 6 years. It's not even a conference anymore. 14 teams is too many and 16 is just stupid.


    It's all snark from here on out
