I'm noticing the focus shift from 'what if Florida State and Clemson jump?' to 'ok, will it just be those two...or more?'. I may be reading too much into that...but from where I sit it seems to say things have progressed...as if FSU and Clemson are a done deal...which if true, makes me very happy.
FSU is crazy not to fight for Ga Tech over Pitt. The northeast is a deadzone for college football.
FSU needs another Southeastern partner in prime recruiting territory.

Some of the other threads with insider info from the Big XII have stated that the deal is done between FSU and Clemson. Now it comes down to who the other two members will be and when they will join. Quite a few possibilities there.
"Some people think football is a matter of life and death, I assure you, it is much more serious than that."
Does anyone know how your exit fee is structured. Do you have to stay in the conference for X number of years after telling them you are leaving and therefore not having to pay an exit fee or are you locked in for the term of the TV contract.
FSU, CLEM, GT and ND.......that would be pretty awesome. If no ND, then gimme another team from the southeast.
If we're going to have an Eastern Division, we need Eastern schools. And since we recruit Ga, Florida, South Carolina, we need rivalries closer to home than Lubbock TX to interest kids that will be coming here.
And yes I'm buying that it's a done deal. I can appreciate that reasonable folks chose to maintain a skeptical view that it is indeed happening. But there are too many close to the program confirming this has been firmed up through back channels. Big money folks, people close to the staff, etc. Folks that don't involve themselves in the day-to-day internet rumor mill.
Barron is apparently not a big fan of the Big 12, either.
