Earlier this year, Andy Haggard became the face and voice of the anti-ACC faction within Florida State's athletic hierarchy when he publicly blasted the league's television contract and said the school should explore a possible move to the Big 12.
But on the day Maryland left the ACC, Haggard, who is still on FSU's Board of Trustees but stepped down as chairman in June, told USA TODAY Sports that he doesn't see the Seminoles pursuing another league.
"We've had no overtures from anybody," Haggard said. "We've made no overtures. Florida State is right where they are right now. Whatever Maryland did is totally isolated, and we're going to stay the course and we're going to be in the Atlantic Coast Conference. I've heard nothing from the Board of Trustees or (athletic director) Randy Spetman, and I don't think it affects us one bit."

"We've had no overtures from anybody"
This needs to be highlighted, underlined and enlarged. The ball isn't in our court.

Deny deny deny til it happens
Sounds like they've gotten to the last member of this administration and board that gave a crap what the fans think.
Pretty much the last thing I wanted to hear.
This isn't surprising. It's not like we can just get up and leave.
So much for hopes!!! smh
Damn, not what I wanted to here. Something has to be done, we our too good, to be in this joke of a Conf !!
Really what do you expect him to say!
Or have they heard some stuff but want to keep it on the down low after the previous crap storm?

Believe it or not, the opinion on this message board is not shared by most of our fans or our boosters. This is typically the case with most issues, as the message board goers are typically the extremists of fan bases.
Well if overtures were taking place it's not like Spetman would know about them anyway.
Believe what you'd like sir, but the musical chairs will not stop until there are 4-super conferences (16-teams)...The ACC has emphatically proven that it will not be one of those 4.
We will either move -- or face the wrath of being on the outside looking in...
The powered wielded by those 4 will all but lock us out of the 4-game playoff.
The ideas forged through reasonable logic, debate, and discussion on this board -- may be groundbreaking, but the logic behind the ideas that float to the top will remain consistent and universal... and in time, the rest of the gang will be on board.

Furthermore, if it makes financial sense for losing ass, bankrupt Maryland to make this move.... I have a very hard time seeing how the math doesn't work in our favor...
There is a mutual benefit for both the Big12/SEC and FSU... And I sincerely doubt they wouldn't extend us an invitation, if we extended the olive branch.
Genius Deloss Dodds is already saying Big 12 is happy at 10. Guy is a moron. Hopefully Bowlsby feels otherwise.
I didn't say I didn't want to move nor did I say the administration doesn't want to make the move. I was simply stating that the opinion shared on this message board is not shared by a large majority of our fan base. It was in direct response to this: "he last member of this administration and board that gave a crap what the fans think".
Cut and run baby! Cut and run!
The titanic has hit an ice burg, and this guy is the captain telling people to stay in their room.... everything is going to be OK
Yes, because you are the pulse of the fanbase.
That statement means nothing
The Big 12's hand will be forced when the other conferences start expanding. They also need a Conference Championship Game. They will have to expand and FSU will be one of the first calls. By gaining the Florida market they will be able to renegotiate their TV deal and get their foot in the Florida recruiting market.
