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.

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.
Whatever.... bring on this stupid 4 conference super power crap..... Its inevitable at this point.
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.
