    Rutgers is expected to announce their move to the B1G tomorrow. I hope this opens up the door for FSU to come the the Big 12. I don't necessarily want them, but we need to grow to keep up with the other conferences and they are the best/most available option for the Big 12.

    Yeah, either ACC is going to poach again to get back to 14 or someone else will leave the ACC. We will see what falls out.

    Likely but not official - yet RT @Peder_Rice: On SportsCenter right now, they're saying Rutgers announcement tomorrow. Can you confirm?

    I wish we could have just stayed with the old conferences. Seriously hate the Big 10 for doing all of this. I understand it is all about the money but it is getting annoying. They are ruining college football with this. It ruins rival games.

    At the end of the day, all that just happened is that two mediocre leagues became even more mediocre. Nothing to see here, especially if you are a viewer of sports on TV in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

    I'd rather stay at 10 teams, but if there was a time to gun for Florida State, it's now. Who would the other school be?

    FSU and GaTech would be my top choices, but GT pines for the B1G. WOuld love to have VaTech as well.

    Pay attention to what Maryland negotiates the $50 mil buyout down to. If it's something reasonable, I wouldn't be surprised if FSU & Clemson look to eject...

    I really am nervous again because of this. Just don't want any poachers to come in and take some big 12 teams.

    I think Big 12 needs to move to 14 teams like SEC and B1G are going to.

    My choices would be:

    -Louisville (could be our conf rival, battle of the red colored birds)
    -Virginia or Va Tech (to be rival with WV)
    -Clemson (for FSU)
    -Florida State (for Clemson)

    UT has OU (red river)
    KSU has KU (sunflower state)
    OSU has TTU (shootout rivalry)
    TCU has Baylor (religious rivalry)

    The Big 10 is looking to add better quality teams. Teams that can be competitive. Unlike their current roster of cellar dwelling teams (Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Purdue.....). Maybe this upgrade should include MAC members as well.:v_SPIN:

    I don't think the Big 12 will get a shot at UVA or VTech. NCST seems more likely from that region.
