If doubtful occurs & FSU/CU do go to Big12, with no other invitations from anyone,
Then what is the fallback position for the ACC? That's important because we'd be stuck in it.
The SEC and Big 12 would be close in size and members would be splitting up a nice pie, with little incentive for the time being to invite anyone else in to share in their wealth (especially in the SEC whose slightly larger membership already will produce slightly smaller shares for each member), certainly not until they see how the playoff planning and their Big Bowls work out.
So suppose there's no invitation to VT from the SEC. And just to make it even more realistic, suppose the silence at ND means nothing there is changing until they see what they can do with the Big Boys down the road. So suppose the silence means no present interest, and the statements from each of the Big 4 conferences mean exactly what the statements have said -- no current plans for further expansion (allowing for the FSU/CU thing for this discussion).
What should the ACC do? Who should take FSU and CU's place? Should we just let Pitt and Cuse be the 'replacements?' What would benefit us most as a member?
