Doubt they go for both Florida markets. Clemson makes sense along with one Florida team

No room in the SEC. Kind if an awkward situation geographically.

Said it before if/when the Sec expands, it's UNC #1 then likely a Virginia school next.

Clemson and FSU or even Miami to the Big 12 would be pretty sweet IMO. I'll take them over Colorado and Mizzou. I'd still rather go back to Nebraska and A&M but that would be an acceptable replacement I guess.

In the world of super conferences FSU and Clemsons are players and need a home. Big XII works but still a little funky location wise.

Yeah but it doesn't appear that location(in terms of distance) is much of a factor in any of these conference moves. WV is kind of out of place in the Big 12 as well.

Big 12 should've just added Louisville and tried for Clemson next. We would've been a great fit in every way and helped out slot in several sports. We travel more than most colleges too.

As a stories football program, yes. However the big 12 should've added my CARDS with WVU at the same time. We are better in most other sports than FSU and I know we have better facilities since we are top 3 in the nation. To add FSU now instead if Louisville last year was dumb. They could be going for FSU now. Not too mention we really are a top 25 team this year and we will be good next year. Our other three top money making sports are top 10 in national rankings for the last three years. We have a BCS win in 2006. Idk what else we have to prove to be recognized as a top 10 sports college? The Big 12, 10, and the ACCshould've salivated over adding Louisville. Fuck a TV market. Why not just take the best? We have been the Best Big East School since we joined overall. That's a fact in money, trophies, and anything else.

Its about money. Markets matter. Fanbase matters. Football matters. FSU tops UL in every single category that truly matters. Hoops is nice. There is some money there, but not enough. That is why no one gave a shit about KU or Duke during the conference realignment. An overall sports program means little too. Surprisingly some conferences really care about academics. It doesn't make sense to me, but I believe UL is waaaay down the list there too.

Not trying to hate, BBC, but that is just how I see it.

Not too mention I net we ha e 20,000 plus buy tickets to the sugar bowl. Our tv market isn't too shabby either. Number one college basketball tv market for how many years now?

The football money barely covers our alcohol sales farmer. We're right there with anyone in money made.

Alcohol sales don't bring money to the conference. Plus the Big XII doesn't allow alcohol to be sold in the home stadiums I don't believe.

Yeah but bowl game wins do. When we beat FSU in the orange bowl and get our third bcs trophy im sure we will get more respect. Like i said, FSU is a known football powerhouse but we own them in every other sport. I would rather pick up a proven school than a washed up team who is a shell of what they once were. Aside from the Kragthorpe era my CARDS have been much better than FSU. I think this might be the first top 10 team FSU has had in some time. I could be wrong though. I know we beat their ass last time we played.

Last 10 years
FSU
2 10 win seasons
ranked 6th times (not counting this year): 21st, 10th, 14th, 23rd, 21st, 16th, 23rd

UL
2 10 win seasons
ranked 3 times (not counting this year) 6th, 19th, 6th

Pretty comparable if you ask me.

We have a bcs bowl win though and you forgot the asterisk for us being Kragthorped. That. Just. Isn't. Fair.

How many world series, sweet 16, elite 8, or final fours do they have? Heck we even have a few women's final fours and one runner up.

Great achievements, but doesn't mean anything in conference realignment.

And thus RU is in the B1G.


And the realignment is indeed all football driven. Cause that is where the big $$$ is. Otherwise these teams would not leave the BE. Nor would Md leave the ACC for the B1G.

Looked like Farmer was giving UofL props for having a recent resume that hung with FSU.
