This board is amazing to me. It is like you many of you are trying to convince yourselves that there is no way FSU/Clem will leave. If this is all about nothing why is this message board so busy? Why are there special BOT meetings happening? Why don't you see any clear language from FSU/Clem that they are staying in ACC even if offered? If the Big 12 turns up the heat on expansion and delivers big money, the ACC is in danger...make no mistake about it. The ACC may or may not get raided but there is a huge threat right now.

The Big XII called WVU and TCU and they left a damn vapor trail they left so fast. If the Pac-X were to call up Boise State or SDSU, they too would bail on the Big East. The Big East is in the midst of a mass-exodus and the last one seated gets stuck with the check.
No one of consequence has uttered a peep of dissatisfaction with the ACC. No one from FSU. Well, Andy Haggard ran his uninformed mouth and was quickly put in his place by Dr. Barron. But Haggard's opinion never mattered anyway. No one from Clemson. No one collecting a paycheck from any ACC school has expressed any desire to change conferences. The ACC is about as solid as a conference can be and no one from the Big XII or the Big East gets that. Especially not the Dude from the school that jumped from one crumbling conference to another. The ACC is a destination, not a stepping stone. You have to go back 40 years to find the last time a school left the ACC. It ain't about to happen now either.
