Ohio State reporting GT approved for the B1G


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 7:55 AM
 

This could get interesting. Hope our AD and administration don't have their heads buried in sand.


That would be an end to a great rivalry.***

Clemson/Tech is one of the best rivalries in the South. I'd hate to see it end. I hope we stay in the ACC and figure out a way to keep everyone happy. I'm having a hard time believing that we're going to the B1G. Just don't believe it, honestly.


We'll just go out and get UConn ...

we need more hoops schools.

if true, this is a direct "hit" on the ACC....

...Maryland was a deck fire that your can repair, but GT would be a torpedo at the water line that will seriously damage the ship beyond repair.


That would be 2 (MD and GT) state-wide schools with huge TV


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 8:42 AM
 

markets gone in the matter of weeks. It doesn't matter that the state of Maryland might be more pro-oriented and that UGA is the top dog in the state of Georgia. The TV people will not look favorably towards the ACC, losing those 2 markets.


What it does....


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 9:31 AM
 

is demonstrates a lack of confidence in the leadership in the ACC and further a punitive $50 million buyout still does not deter schools from leaving.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


I really hope this is true so I can say, "Well, bye."

and, who needs GT with their cut blocking scheme anyway.

Look for FSU to go to B12 and VT and NCS to SEC.


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 8:12 AM
 

Not a matter of "if", but "when". I believe within the next year, those moves will be announced. I would expect that the University of Cinncinnati, UCONN, South Florida and Temple to become members of the ACC in the near future.

How is GT a rival they OWN the all time series record?

a row!! With ease I may add!! We have to get bigger, stronger, and meaner, heck we are as fast as anybody, just watch how our DB's get separation from opponents WR's. That SEC speed right there!! We have to take a total look at what we are doing and how we are doing it!! #### a coot!


You completely missed the point***

not that I doubt it, but you have a link you can share?

Seems to me, that the ACC has been taking teams from a conference in trouble and the ACC will be heading down the same road as the Big East.


Whatever the ACC does CLEMSON will "APPLAUD" it***

Source? Got a link?...

I won't believe it until the ink has dried on the contract. I'd be stunned.


would you like it as a GT fan?***

No, not really...


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 9:38 AM
 

We'd be so geographically isolated, it would be ridiculous. Here's my preference in order:

1) ACC works it out. Tweaks divisional alignments. STays together, with Clemson/FSU/GT all intact and remaining.

2) If things don't, then Tech goes to the SEC. That won't happen unless it's a defensive move by Slive. And I don't think we'd have enough support within the SEC.

3) B1G. Not likely to happen, IMO. I know the rumors are EVERYWHERE. But it just doesn't smell right to me.

4) B12. This is far and away our worst option...except for #5.

5) ACC falls apart, but Tech remains in the ACC. I'd go ahead and slit my wrist if this happened.


seems to be change is coming especially if Maryland

is able to negotiate a lesser exit fee.

2020 white level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg

I agree with that...


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 9:50 AM
 

It's just that I don't see Tech as being on the leading edge of that change. I'm more likely to buy into UVA, UNC or FSU leaving before us.

I know we have a few things that the B1G wants. We give them access to a huge TV market, and a state hugely rich in recruiting. We don't hurt their academics at all (probably help it, actually), and we're AAU. But it still just seems too far to me. If I were the B1G and I wanted to move South, I'd be looking in Virginia & North Carolina.

If we leave the ACC, the thing I will miss the most is our rivalry with Clemson. I'm not saying that just to kiss up to you guys. I mean it. That game means a lot to me, and I'd hate to lose it. It's the best rivalry in the conference, IMO.


Re: I agree with that...


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 10:08 AM
 

I doubt it will happen but we need for Clemson, FSU, GT, and State to stay together. Maybe move to the Big 12 if there is an invitation.

I'm guessing the ACC will see the writing on the wall. IF Maryland wins a lawsuit to escape paying the buy-out it will be tied up in court for so long that it will effect whether or not any else leaves.


I hate GT people as a standard, but you're all right***

It does to the B1G....


Posted: Nov 30, 2012 9:19 AM
 

who wants to expand it foot print, television markets, and recruiting base in the southeast. For GT, it's a much bigger payday than anything the ACC can offer.

agreed.....if they can get the B1G network with increased

rights fees in the southeast...wow....I watch it...GT needs more $ to come close to competing with UGA.

So, "Ohio State" is reporting this...

Would that be a fan there or the infamous Dude dropping another pile of BS?

How about a link to this.


I blame Heather Dinnich, she is an Indiana grad.

Big 10 has only added adjacent states to exsisting schools. I don't see this happening. Really doesn't make sense. Why would GT want to be the only southern school in a midwest/northern conf?
