I don't think we ever really had the chance. It was all smoke and no fire.

I think we did and the Swofford pulled the ND thing and everybody backed off.

Awful lot of gossip there not to be any fire.

It's the internet for cripes sake

Someone somewhere starts a rumor. That rumor may have a few kernels of truth (in this case "FSU and Clemson aren't incredibly happy with the direction of leadership of the ACC" & "This other conference is looking into expansion"). But after a few dozen twitter and internet experts get their hands on it, suddenly it's a done deal.

And honestly no one in the chain really has to be being dishonest. They are all pointing at rumors and drawing from each other to extract new "info" without there ever being anything there to begin with.

So everyone in the media outlets decided to just grab this rumor and start spouting nonsense? Sorry but I ain't buying that. Rumors start everywhere,but not many make it to the media outlets that report it as news.

GO back and look at the reports


Posted: Oct 8, 2012 5:31 PM
 

The media was only reporting what folks on twitter and internet message boards were saying. Hence all of the "reports say" and "it is being reported".

I'm honestly not arguing that this was all rumor. I don't know. But I do know that the fact that the reports exist does not make it automatically more than rumor and supposition.

The internet is nothing but smoke!!! We were never going anywhere!


Remember that Barker supposedly played a major role in

getting ND on board. I do think at one time there was serious consideration given to considering a move...but then the BOT and advisory board etc decided to go all in with the ACC & ND thingy.

We probably could have,but Swofford comes along and says I am working with ND and everything falls apart.

Perhaps Our Football Program Should Go INDEPENDENT Like ...

Notre Dame? Rest of the Sports can stay in the ACC. We could agree to play at least 5 ACC teams a year... for goodwill.

and we'd end up playing mid majors and never go to a decient bowl. Stupid Idea.

that about what is happening now


Re: We should have bolted for the BIG12 why we had the chance


Posted: Oct 8, 2012 5:55 PM
 

well tht helps because all the teams are crappy and we should beat everyone and move up ranks


You should be thanking whatever powers kept you in the ACC


Posted: Oct 8, 2012 6:07 PM
 

If you even had a chance to go to the Big 12 to begin with. Just being a realist here, but if you think your defense looks bad now, I honestly have a hard time fathoming what it would look like against constant Big 12 opponents.

Agreed but you improve by playing better teams.

a man formerly of great power in IPTAY, there was definately some fire. Both sides apparently cooled on the idea with the Clemson side being the first to back off.
