Re: Front Page Story: We Want...Bama?

Yes, there was more to that than internet message board gossip. FSU & Clemson both together reached out to them. There were discussions. How serious they got, or whether the two were using that as leverage on the ACC to become more proactive rather than reactive is up for debate. FSU LOST money last season winning the ACC and going to the Orange Bowl, and I've seen articles this season saying they are very likely looking at a loss this season as well. With all the money being made in college football, it's gotta be upsetting and frustrating for FSU. The SEC had/has no interest in them nor Clemson and that really leaves both schools hamstrung. I think those discussions with the Big 12 are what led to all the ACC schools signing that deal, can't recall what they named it, where the exit fee was upped to $50 mil, and it also says any school that does leave would also have to forfeit their money from their new conf's tv deal, for the first two years. I may be wrong on the two years part, not sure. Either way, now it look like we're stuck in the big boy basketball conf. Which, personally, I have no interest in Clemson ever joining the SEC.
