Unconfirmed, obviously - A CBS outlet in Washington, DC is reporting that Virginia and Georgia Tech will leave the ACC, join Big Ten.
This will start the end of the ACC if true. SEC scoops up VT and State, Fsu and Taters hit Big 12.
The days of 10-2 football will be over for the taters and I believe that the local SEC will be a big recruiting advantage for us and local kids.

That would be the best scenario for us.
Virginia and Virginia Tech aren't leaving each other
If this does happen, I hope the SEC goes after UNC and Duke.
I hate both schools but they are the best athletic brands in ACC and would help with the SEC academic profile, improve hoops, lock up the state of NC and give us two old hated rivals located close by. As only 2 of 16, they could not run a cabal like they did in the ACC.

The best scenario would be for Clemson to be left in the ACC after FSU and Miami went the the Big 12. I SOOOO want Clemson to be left holding the bag in an awful conference with no BCS bid and an awful reputation in football.
I would think that the Big12 would try to get a few more teams from the ACC. 10 members plus 2 is only 12.
My guess is that if they go that way, they would try to get more teams so that they could have an east division and a west division. VT, UNC, Clemson and FSU would get them to 14 and a huge footprint right here in the SEC country. I much prefer that Big12 takes teams that are geographically closer to them.
Edit, add Louisville to that and that will give you Kentucky footprint as well.

I bet they will. Most major schools dont want mulitple schools in one state in expansion.
Va Tech will be fine with it after the join the SEC along with UNC or NC State.
Here is my guess if this plays out:
UNC & Duke to SEC
FSU Clemson NC St & Va Tech to Big 12, maybe Miami & Louisville as well.
The rump ACC merges with the Big East
Texas A and M left Texas
So I guess the 2 or 3 teams that are left in the confrence at the end will have a ton of money after all the other schools pay $50mil to leave the conference.
Would so love for this to happen
F UNCarolina...no SEC for them
Completely Different situations
So I'm assuming, geographically, that they would move Missouri to the west and add nc state and va tech to the east.
Not a fan. I wish theyd leave it at 14. 12 was perfext. That's another damn SEC team we're gonna have to play every year. Unless they get rid of the second west matchup instead.
Hilarious that people think state legislature is unbreakable
They've only been together for 6 years. Why would they have a problem separating? Their conference affiliation means little. Do we care that Clemson plays in another conference? Makes little difference to the rivalry.
Never trust local TV sports stations. Your man card is suspended for 30 days.
Left to right: Reed and Blondie,
$$$$$$$$$ talks. When UVA was ACC & vpi in big east they were apart. For the right amount of cash they'll part ways
