One says he has a source that says its a done deal..... Dont the active members have to vote them in?lol Silly taters.
lead pipe cinch. get the fax machines warmed up
The rug really tied the room together, did it not?
When I worked in Corrections....all the inmates had wild rumors about the state being forced to set everybody free because of budget cuts.
I love that they want the impossible...sooooooo bad.
Yes. Before expansion, it required approval from at least 8 of the 12 members. I don't know what the new number is. But USC, Georgia, Florida and Kentucky have a pact agreeing to vote together to blackball their in-state rivals. So Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida State and Louisville are effectively barred from SEC membership.
absolutely 0 chance in he double hockey sticks. they really are in meltdown mode aren't they? Cant wait to see them after another bowl loss.
Yeah and check out this crazy post......

i couldnt get past the first sentence..."dabo is excellent coach and all his staff." WUT???
And that guy graduated from Clemson. Wow.
I don't think Slive will bring to a vote an invite that won't be unanimous. There's no reason to alienate any of the existing members. The SEC will get the tv markets they want.
How could anyone say that going to Clemson would be better than going to USC? I've been to that hell hole 6 times including last weekend and the campus is okay, but not that great. It has more green space than USC but the architecture isn't as nice as it is on our campus. Clemson is a good 5-10 degree's colder than columbia, there isn't much to do, the women can't compare and the "locals" are total trash. I can't remember being colder than I was last weekend and I was drunk. That place sucks.....

bottom line is adding clemson brings absolutely no monetary value to sec. it's about how much money a conference can make from media rights when negotiating future deals with ESPN or other potential media. the greenville market is already considered within the sec footprint. and, aside from that fact, the sec does not need clemson to bolster any sport. clemson's and fsu's best hope is the big12. if clemson doesn't realize it needs to seriously consider that option immediately, especially given the current realities of college football, then they could find themselves with no place to go if fsu or any other major acc school jumps ship before them. they still have not realized that tech, unc, fsu, vt, uva, miami and nc state are much more attractive to other conferences than they are based on media rights and geography.
Slive's already stated that the SEC will only expand when it wants to add to it's footprint. A&M and Mizzou added to the SEC's footprint by expanding into two new states. Bottom line, Clemson does nothing but water down the league and force it to divide the money up even more; it doesn't add any more value.
They want in so bad. To quote Demario Jeffrey, " I am 100% against Clemson."
If true cant u see the new clemson t shirts all of their fans will buy up and wear so proudly as new members of the Southeastern Conference.......orange shirt, big white orange paw on the front with SEC in the middle of it. On the back, "Let the beatings continue"

As has been said on the past- clempson is auburn, with a lake. Even designed by the same racist dude.
Clowney is exceptional at football but mediocre at what it takes to graduate from college. Clemson is harder academically, but that would not look like an advantage to Clowney. Maybe his mom wanted the Clemson degree, but Clowney wanted to play in the place that gave him the best chance of going to the NFL. He may never graduate, but he'll be successful.
Maybe they should stop bragging about their tough academics to athletes.
I'm not saying that our athletes aren't smart, because we have many on the SEC honor roll, and they are very intelligent. Also, certain majors at USC are very difficult. Those aren't generally the majors of athletes. They really don't have the time necessary to put into those studies.
I'll wait for York Tiger to confirm. He was the one on top of their guaranteed move to the Big 12.
Do you know this(pact between teams) to be fact or just what you read on this message board. Not doubting your connections just wondering if this is true because its what I've been hearing for a while.
I don't see it. Big 12, maybe.
I just don't see them getting the votes needed for membershjip in conference.
UVA OR Va Tekky AND NC State--two of those three could be future members, IMO. UNC is a longshot and could only realistically happen if the ACC really fell apart.
The recent Maryland move to BIG will get folks to throw up their hands.
Let's sit back and watch this 'silly season' unfold.....
Silly taters. They water down the pie. Not even being considered.
"Clemson is harder academically."
Are you being serious? If so, what is this based on? Tigernet?
