Its a small fanbase relative to another team within the state.

I think if the SEC could get a team in North Carolina, they would want UNC. Ain't gonna happen, but it sure would be funny to hear the howls coming out of Clemson and FSU if it did. :)

The SEC knows it would never get UNC. UNC would never leave the ACC because the ACC does what UNC wants. UNC runs the ACC.

NC State would leave though. It would give the SEC millions more television sets. It doesn't matter if most people in the state would or wouldn't watch. Distribution is all that matters.

If they can get into NC, the SEC can then launch their proposed SEC network in NC. Since cable providers pay to carry a channel, the SEC makes money regardless of if people are watching NC State play or not.

If NC State was an established fan base, I'd agree. Right now, NC State's games would only be televised locally. No one wants to watch a mediocre or worse team like NC State play against SEC competition.

North Carolina also has so many residents from other states, which include Virginia and South Carolina. If they were to go after one of (or both of) those teams, they'd also get a draw from NC viewers. Most of NC is not a fan of NC State and will not tune in to watch them get destroyed by SEC competition. They just wont.

Its the sports off season, and they have little else to talk about. If it was August, there would be barely a mention of it.

I have heard the same rumor that the big 12 would be paying for travel expenses but not sure if it's true or not. One poster mentioned why not Miami over Clemson. The rumor going around is that Miami could be left dangling for a while because they're about to get the hammer dropped on them by the NCAA. This will also make it tough for them to return to that national prominence you're referring to

Staties should calm down. NC State doesn't have an established enough fan base to go to the Big XII or the SEC.

Arguing for the sake of arguing is pointless and more so in this case. Tom O'Brien isn't a big time football program coach, so he'd sink fast in the SEC/Big XII along with the entire program. The SEC and Big XII aren't dumb enough to take a flier on a school that doesn't even have the #2 fan base in it's own state.

Agree w/ both of these points. IMHO, and I've had lengthy discussions with my good friends who are state alum, O'Brien should of been fired after last season. He's been there long enough now where he is playing w/ his own recruits and that whole Russell Wilson debacle was just plain embarrassing. State could of won the ACC last year with him and instead took 2 steps back.

I'll be honest about this too, the only reason TOB wasn't fired was because of the Carolina game last year. Withers should of kept his mouth shut instead of giving State bulletin board material. But TOB has Carolina's number in FB and that's all state fans really care about.
