I thought it was interesting.
This guy is touched... he needs to be writing spy novels or something... he's clearly creative...
To put those made-up ideas down as fact, without identifying them as fictional writing... is pretty evil.
What's more likely -- silly creative writer weaving enough between fact and fiction..it peaks your interest.
Or 8 teams quietly actively seeking membership into other conferences, with hundreds of people involved... and nothing leaking to the media...
Seems to jive with everything we are hearing at that makes sense. I think the Big 10 does take UVA, UNC and the Big 12 will add FSU and Clemson and SEC adds VT and Ncst. I think the rest of the ACC bands with BE to form a great conference for all sports but football. Big 12 will wait 2-3 years on adding Louisville and Miami out of the new ACC/BE. Miami so they can wait till they are nearly off sanctions and Louisville if they prove they can replace Strong and remain a growing brand that cuts out a slice of the Eastern Midwest. My hopes. That would put us in one of four meaningful conferences and would like the Big 12.
The Dude certainly threw a lot of stuff against the wall. Will be interesting to see what sticks. I tend to agree with FsuFanForever and think he's writing fiction. But if he does have legit information then it could be very interesting.

Hell, I know its fake, but I got a woody anyway
He is bitter that WVU didn't get invited into the ACC. He is hell bent on the destruction of the ACC.

Aren't we all at this point?
Si, si fish. In their insular arrogance, the terbaccy row cabal, has shown their true colors and is daring anyone to do anything about it. I'd start looking into their compensation packages and perquisites, and attack them publicly with anything untoward that's found.
Man, I would have loved to be in the Big10.
I personally hope we move to the Big 12 since I live 9 miles from the OU campus.
I spent the 90's and 00's watching Penn State / Ohio State / Michigan / Nebraska..... climb their way up the rankings... while playing some of the easiest schedules that have ever existed in college football.
Every year, like clockwork, they would produce an over rated team -- and when you drilled down and looked at their schedule, you could see they were going to end up getting their asses destroyed inevitably..and sure enough, 99% of them choked out.
We are now approaching 10-years since they won a national title (Ohio State)... and that title was won as a result of terrible officiating... and cheating...On average, their teams are painfully slow... And that's because their brands means absolutely nothing in the recruiting grounds where the vast majority of speed comes from (South). Kids from the south are not interested in going to these land locked hell holes... to deal with freezing weather... to look at hideously ugly women who are saving themselves... These teams make an ass-load of money, because football is the only entertaining thing to do within a 500-mile radius of their town...
The last thing FSU needs to do is associate itself with a bunch of teams on the decline who have already peaked... so we can go another 10-years undefeated streak through a conference, beating up on the slow kids...and further relegating ourselves to SEC/Big12/PAC ridicule....
Olympic athletes move to Colorado and train against one-another, not local kids from some gym.... With anything in life, top notch competition leads people to dig deeper and take the game to another level. It's not a fluke that the SEC has won the last 6-national titles... (with the 7th all but guaranteed at this point)

Let me get this straight - you're saying you wouldn't want to go on a 10 year undefeated run through conference play? And this time it would be one of only 4 conferences? I call
I think the Eers guy and "Dude from WV" are the same guy. The Eers guy got busted earlier this year for posing as an ND insider from the ND Athletic Dept that said, "ND was going to the Big 12." Someone traced his IP address and he got caught.
The guy just stirs the pot. The article attached shows how he is full of crap. I love how an outsider likes to think he knows that is going on with FSU.
WVU fans are so butt hurt from not being invited to the ACC. Even though I wish they had.
But make no mistake that these guys have alternative motives.

This guy wants this move to happen so badly that he's creating rumors about Fisher to manipulate our administration into doing so.
The B-1G has a policy that all new members must boarder a current member How GT would fit into that is clear, they wouldn't.
I will say this though, if the B-12 did add an invite to Miami to go along with Clemson I don't think we'd stay in the ACC for very long. Right there we'd have Miami & CU. as built in rivals..
