I hate the idea of merging with anyone at all but I'm way more into an ACC merger than a PAC mergerWhen the emails etc came out from UNC etc, there were talks of a merger floated between the ACC and PAC, since then there have been a few media types floating the idea that the ACC and Big 12 have either talked or talking about it.
Whether that is complete smoke or anything real who knows. I would not doubt there have been at least the idea floated, but further than that who knows. My feeling is all of these possibilities either have been or are being looked at, at least in some form. Whether any of it goes anywhere that is really anyone's guess.
My guess is a lot of what has been said out there is just people guessing that because they floated the merger with the Pac that the Big 12 is being talked to as well, but who knows. My post was just in whatever scenario these mergers are being looked at, I would think a merger with the ACC would be at least favorable to other options, if it were possible. And more so for both parties than anything with the PAC.
