There is actually more history to it, Florida pushed for fsu from the late 60's on when Georgia Tech and Tulane bailed out, the SEC put it off over and over again and when they finally were ready to invite them fsu bailed out, pissing a lot of Florida and SEC people off, many of whom are still in the conference office.
I don't see an invite coming for the other thing you said, "easier path" fsu likely still favors that plan since it helped them get two titles in the 90's.
