Since its basically the most exciting thing going on right now, what is everyone's opinions on the conference realignment? Do you think its good or bad for business? As a student at the University of Tennessee i'm diligently watching for any news of who the SEC is adding if anyone. Right now i'm hoping for Texas A&M and Virginia Tech(Which would be very hard to pull away from the ACC) if we go to 14 and maybe West Virginia and either Maryland or Missouri if we go 16. Well i guess these are the ones i think are plausible. I would love North Carolina or Duke but growing up in ACC country i couldn't fathom them being in any conference. I'm rambling now, so Huddle what is your opinion on all the movement in college football?

P.S. sorry for the off topic but there hasn't been much movement lately and i'm tired of looking at Thomas Davis tears ACL, makes me sick to my stomach.

Lol VT worked UT in the bowl game so Id like a chance see them in the reg season for a little pay back... I'd love to see UT kick some Texas A&M ass and west va would be another team I'd like to see UT lay the smack down on.

You are forgetting about basketball. UNC and Duke can bring in a lot more in basketball than football.

There is no reason to jump into the SEC unless they show a serious commitment to improving their basketball.

UNC and Duke are a few of the exceptions, in most cases the football program brings in so much more $$$ than the basketball program that schools are going to consider what is best for the football program first and foremost.

This is being done for one sport.......football. the big money (television contracts) are in football. That's why Kansas is being hung out to dry in the Big12. They have a great basketball program but their football sucks and no major conference wants them. They'll have to join a mid-major.

I love what's happening because it could lead to the NCAA getting cut out of major college football. That would make me very happy.

The nice thing about all the conferences consolidating is that it could lead to a college football playoff system.

Wvu will never leave the Big East as long as the teams already in there, stay. And I dont think adding Texas A&M to the SEC helps the SEC out that much, they're pretty mediocre in football as of late. It would be nice to see VT in the SEC but enless they're guaranteed some huge cash, I doubt it happens.

The sad thing about the expansion is it doesn't look like it is mainly about the quality of the athletics. It seems to be all about who they can add that is decently competitive in football that is in a big tv market, they are trying to expand the viewers. There was a report the other day that the SEC will not take Miami, Florida State, Clemson, or Georgia Tech because they wont add enough money to the pot, even though it would help make the SEC an even better conference. I find all this weird though because i dislike the idea of just taking another conferences team, i have a lot of good opinions on the ACC. I guess its just all part of the business though.

haha, Yeah but to tell you the truth being a huge VT fan and alum I will take our 5, 10 win seasons in a row and throw it out the window to go to the SEC. My Grandfather played at Tenn so i grew up a big Vols football fan and I really think the UT vs VT games would eventually be a huge rivalry. Problem is our AD , Jim Weaver says hes happy in the ACC and thats fine, But if the SEC comes calling he wont turn it down or he will get a lot of poo for it.
