If you read between the lines, Herbstreit thinks the ACC is

2 Super Conferences like AFC/NFC

Would you rather Clemson be in the SEC or B10 ?

Notre Dame isnt coming and no one else available makes the league relevant. I think Clemson, FSU, maybe Miami get absorbed into the super conferences, GOR be ######.....guess we'll see how it shakes out.

Even if we had to pay buyout, and SEC did not pay part of it, we would recoup the money in a few short years.

I hope that you are right. I have been hesitant to think that we should move, but the ACC seems to be a sinking ship.

Yep. This is all about ESPN (SEC) vs. FOX (B1G) and the ACC is just going to be a little appetizer on ESPN for the main course.

None of this gets me more excited about college football or college sports. We already have pro sports in this country and I can't stand them. Maybe some of you are excited about NIL, transfer portals and new conferences. Not me! I feel like I'm being driven further and further away from something I have enjoyed most of my life. I like the traditions that align with conferences. I miss the concept of student athletes.
This all reminds me of the death of NASCAR. Keep meddling until no one even cares about the sport anymore.

I think CFB, the game I love the most, will be virtually dead in 5 years. It's what, 2k per weekend now for a family of four to attend a game in the LDR section with parking etc?

What's really going to turn people away is 17-18 yo kids whov'e never passed a ball worth 5 million. That's more than most make in a lifetime. What about the center snapping the ball and the LT who has said 18yo millionaire's back going to think? My guess is they don't block as well.

Columbia is a good example. They are already around 50-55k actual attendance, down from 80k. People will not pay for this. I'm not a big NFL guy, but if I want to watch paid professionals - that's what I'll watch. Blame the NCAA...

Agree. No oversight at all in college football. What was once called cheating to get an unfair advantage is now encouraged by wealthy people who have found college football is a great way to make a lot of money.

The mindset began with youth sports when parents began funding 100K salaries for soccer coaches and league organizers were raking in much more. Now they all battle for the same kids and award “scholarships” to the best athletes while letting the others pay the bill.

Agree. Another pro league is being created where all we hear about is money, money, money. No news to be heard about the players as people and the loyal fans. Much higher ticket prices and many fine programs will fold.

You are losing sight of the concern. I love Clemson and the game that was CFB. CFB will cease to exist long term if this happens. It may take some time, but this game depended on a national audience from schools that were involved in the sport. If Clemson is left out of this shake up, are any of us watching CFB. Nope! I may not even watch if Clemson joins one of the super conferences. None of the 60 other schools that are left out fans will watch either. This is a bad business model and I blame the SEC and ESPN.

Things started to change in CFB when coaches salaries went through the roof. A high end coach makes 7-10 million now. That's too much

When Muschamp can make 4 million per year/have a losing record/get paid 15 million to be fired and then allowed to take another job, the whole system needs a major overhaul.

Sounds like you’ll pass on the gas to your friends and neighbors there in Greenville and they’ll thank me for it.

I don’t have a problem with great coaches making big money, but guys like Herbstreit make big bucks and they just ramble on and on. That’d be fine if they were always correct with their ramblings, but if you follow the game you’ll find that he says a bunch of things that are just untrue. That qualifies as a blow hard. Talking heads mean little to me and I often just turn the sound down and watch the line of scrimmage and then follow the ball on the replay.

Honestly, I am going to be faced with a moral question if these super conferences happen. Even if Clemson is in one of them. At this point I would lean towards tuning out to give these people the finger for their severe greed that would have destroyed the sport we love as well as possibly other college sports across the country. Thank you SEC. You are straight up trash.

I happen to agree with Herbstreit but for different reasons..First, we drag along the ACC network negotiations with ESPN for so long we sign a deal that is no longer lucrative for the schools by comparison and to make that even worse, (secondly) the dumb deal was signed into 2030 something. Who signs a long term deal for a third of the current contracts with B1G or SEC. A short term deal with incentives would have been much better for the ACC and room for new negotiations.

Aside from the travel, I think it might be more interesting to be the southern team in the Big Ten rather than just one more in the SEC footprint. We probably fit in better with the SEC though and most of our rivals are likely to be in the conference - two of biggest already are.
