Re: College Football Realignment
Aside from the markets and cable rights increase these 2 programs bring, it also sets up the dominoes for future expansion to 16.
Rumors of FSU to the B12 have been rampant for some time. This gives them more incentive to move on as Maryland will set the market place for buyouts. FSU may potentially take Clemson along with them, further weakening the ACC brand. That then gives VTech an easier path to leave for the SEC, something both sides would favor, which then opens things back up for the B10 to pick up Virginia, UNC or GTech to extend their reach along the eastern seaboard.
If all that happens, its hard to feel bad for the ACC who did all they could to kill off the Big East.
