Of course, this is all predicated upon the ACC actually surviving as a viable conference which is not a foregone conclusion by any means. Florida State and Clemson want out of the ACC desperately and if that happens I think you'll see the entire conference crumble.
Which is why I said the Maryland lawsuit is going to be pivotal. If they win Clemson and Florida State will head to the Big 12 and the rest of the conference will be free agents. I seriously want to see the SEC look at NC State.
