The end result is the same, yes. I don't think FSU is waiting on another offer (as you suggested), I think they sitting tight on going anywhere (SEC included) because of the buyout. The Big 10 may expedite that for us....not necessarily there offer, however.
B1G over Big 12 is a no brainer, the money won't even be close, probably 10 mil a year difference in TV money plus far more football history and academic prestige.
I partially agree with this. If the SEC or B1G offered right now FSU would not hesitate and jump all over those offers the second they were in writing buyout or no buyout. The only conference we would wait for the ACC to fold on is the BIG12.
20? I though the "super conference" was 16? These rumored numbers keep going higher and higher. I can't see a conference going to 20 teams.
Which is why I don't think the SEC offer is coming. No way do they want to pay $25 million to gain our affiliation. They'll wait for the conference to crumble. That's when we'll have our leverage...SEC vs. Big 12. IMO, FSU is waiting for the buyout thing to settle, not for a better offer (which may come after the crumble).

That i agree with 100%. I am just not sure the SEC offer will come at all. I hope it does.
The conference pecking order will be B1G then SEC then Big 12 in terms of money.
bI think we will be No. 18 for the big ten. We will join with UVA UNC and GT. just a hunch
Personally, I would if the B1G was a truly viable option for FSU.
I'd take the 18th spot in the B1G expansion over the 11th or 12th spot in the Big 12.
Adding UVA, UNC, GT, and FSU to bring the B1G to 18 would be a huge win for FSU.
Huge win for the B1G as well. Adding the above mentioned teams positions them well in the race to add the "crown jewel" of realignment, Notre Dame.
With the next wave expected to be a scramble to the 20 team "Super Conference" model, the B1G would have leverage when it came to luring Notre Dame. In addition to a quality option for their basketball program, negotiating a partner (#20) for ND to bring with them, BC or Pitt would geographically/historically be within the conference footprint and make sense. Not to mention the B1G aligns academically with ND much better than the Big 12.

For me the following are my preferences:
From a football standpoint:
From a $ perspective:
That's not what I would expect, but basically the bottom line IMO is that the next school that leaves the ACC is basically a signal for us that it's clear sailing ahead. Can't come soon enough!
That's exactly what I was saying. If the acc loses multiple teams FSU will be in a bit of trouble since we'll have lost the acc as a viable alternative, which it is right now regardless of all the bad mouthing. It's still among the elite conferences. Having the acc as our security blanket allows us to be patient and wait on a better offer than the Big 12 i.e. the sec or big 1G. If it is the big 12 we might be able to get assistance with the buyout or leverage an invite for another team or 3 to join us.
Maybe we still get that but losing the acc as a viable alternative doesn't help us from my point of view.
