CLEMSON TO SEC

Posted: Nov 26, 2012 7:38 PM
 

breaking news i just got from a source. cant say who it is of course but it is someone not very many notches down from president barker. this has been in the works and something could very well be announced before the first of the year. it will be the biggest news for clemson maybe ever. keep your fingers and toes crossed guys.

The SEC has made it clear it has no interst in Clemson. It would rather have NC State because they already have one team from this state.

That is the funniest thing I have ever heard. Please tell me what your joke of a program has done in their 20 years there? 1, and I stress 1, SEC Least title. Sorry man I forgot about the follow up with those awesome 5th,6th,14th whatever place rings they were. I'll bet you money if the SEC could go back and had a choice between your joke of a program and our tigers,you clowns would be in the Big East right now. Reason being you don't deserve the ACC and they wouldn't have your pathetic arses. Keep on sporting that SEC flag though if it makes you feel relevant. Everybody in the nation knows you are not though. Now get off the bosses computer and deliver that pizza that is getting cold coot.

The coots don't want us in the SEC because they know we would absolutely smash them in recruiting. We are doing a good job now,but if we were in the SEC we would be at the top recruiting with our advantage of campus over them.

Gawd! How out of touch you are. REAL football players don't give a #@$% about the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains on a clear day - besides, they're just hills filled with dentally challenged white people.

Look at our weaknesses on D going into this year vs our LB play and improvement. To say our Dline coaches and Cheese aren't going to get their year next and beyond is just ignorant.

Bet So Car don't want to see Chad use the short passing game and I can't see why he didn't for the life of me. Also, I still think if certain penalties were called correctly we wouldn't be having such discussions.

Posted: Nov 26, 2012 11:17 PM
 

believe this? It's not going to happen...period. People with sources higher in the SEC (at least higher than a couple of rungs down the ladder from the CU President) have been very clear there will be NO EXPANSION in states with an SEC school. I know you've heard this but that means CU, FSU, GT, and UL will not get in the SEC unless the SEC school in their state leaves.

UNC/NCST and UVA/VT are virtual locks for the SEC when it goes to 16 schools in 2014. I would jump at any offer the BIG 12 makes ASAP.


I don't think it will happen.


Posted: Nov 26, 2012 11:21 PM
 

But I do think it would make business sense. Adding Clemson and FSU would solidify the SEC against the Big 12 for decades.

The SEC would truly be the Southeastern Conference and the Big 12 would have no foot print in it.

different things. The National Cricket League of Pakistan could expand into NYC, but if nobody watches, what's the advantage of being in a "big market."

This is where I think people are missing the boat about the economics of expansion, when assuming that adding a team within an already-represented state is imposible.

Greenville is one of the TOP FIVE LARGEST TV MARKET IN THE COUNTRY according to actual numbers. You think there are a couple of Clemson fans that contribute to that number? Is there some Coot overlap? Sure there is, but it's still extremely statistically significant.

I agree 100%. It makes sense from a culture point of view also. CU and FSU would be a great fit in the SEC but it's just not going to happen due to economics. No TV sets would be added in that scenario.

He's a jerk, but he really doesn't give a chit about south carolina and he will be gone in a year or two max.

I heard this too. It's been confirmed via multiple outlets.

I've also heard since the cat was let out of the bag (hardy har har), the deal is now off. All Clemson fan ire should be directed at deroberts for the years of ACC torture to come.

Way to go, man... way to go.

I wish somebody would let the coots out. Way too much chicken #### on the floor around here. My ignore button is worn out and I have a new one on order. Hope it gets here soon.

thought it was BS. However, from many past posts I have come to respect deroberts' opinions and, I thought, what if there IS something going on and how could it possibly come to fruition?

So my thoughts started with the common belief the SEC wants a major presence in the NC/VA media markets and that UNC is the big prize they want and need to hit an expansion home run and not just settle for leftovers. So, what have we heard or what can logically be surmised for this plan to be realized?

Other blogs have asserted that for UNC to consider a conference jump they will want a package deal with Duke. Supposedly, this is a sticky point with the B1G as their model desires big state univ's unless your initials are ND.

From my experience of living in Virginia for 5 years, I believe UVA will NOT go to the SEC and will prefer the B1G if the ACC fractures any further. This is due to academic and cultural snobbery, B1G money and linkage to the NE markets UVA adores - but mostly the snobbery.

I think the SEC would like a UNC/Duke package as #'s 15 & 16. Not only would this lockup the NC market, the addition of Duke would be a HUGE boost to the SEC's academic ego - which could use a boost. To access VA markets would require further expansion with VA Tech the only option as #17.

Who then is left for #18 and who would be driving the selection? My take is UNC is the driver and they will influence the choice to be someone that can, potentially, fall under the UNC/Duke 'sphere of influence'. UNC will not just jump ship to a new conference without a grouping that gives them influence in the new family. The SEC would balk at a 3rd NC school and FSU would more likely link to Bama than UNC/Duke. CU would be a good link geographically, academically and retain rivalries for UNC/Duke/VA Tech. The SEC would get 2 of the 3 top FB teams and the two best BB teams in the ACC with dominating presence in the Carolinas and a strong VA/DC play - a Grand Slam!

Anyway, that's how I could see CU as #18.

I like your take on UNC/Puke sticking together. I disagree with your conclusion on the matter, though. My guess is if UNC won't go without Puke, the SEC would say, no deal. THAT would be why Clemson is then an attractive option. Maybe they finally realized it's in their best interest to go for the most SEC-like teams available. That would be Clemson and FSU. Possibly VT. I certainly don't think the SEC is wanting to go to 18 teams. If they're looking to expand to 16 and they won't accept UNC's terms, I could see the door open to Clemson and FSU.

I would advise young guys nowadays to marry anti-vaxxers... only 5 years of child support vs 18.


You would be fined for going on the field after games.

With both FL and Ky in top ten of BBall, it might be to much of a BBall conference for me, LOL!

...but for someone like myself who is so sick of the ACC and ready to get out..I'm kind of tired of getting jerked around with these kind of posts. I'm not sayin that is what your doing but could you shed some light on this? Is this really legit? When might there be an announcement? That is all..


Re: Deroberts, I know your posts are pretty straightforward

dont get your hopes up heavyduty. Its not happening. If someone close to the situation really told deroberts we were SEC bound i dont think he would be announcing it on tigernet.

"Is it really legit?"

Um, didn't he say in the OP that he had a legit source? You want him to repeat his OP, or what?

So Deroberts.....does your statement still hold water or was this a premature statement that was hastily made before thinking it through? Not poking at you....being serious. Just wondering if there is anymore meat to this or is it still speculation?
