Agreed. Their best play is to sit back and watch. Nobody is negotiating from a position of strength with them. And to land them would take a deal not true to what the current ACC is.
If FSU and Clemson leave, even ND doesn't put us at the big boy table. ND would go B12 and we would be stupid not to go SEC.
I'm all in for SEC inclusion. No need to wait any longer IMO.
I want VT in the SEC because then VT will have A+ conference prestige in the NCAA Football games.

Is that you Rudy?
Even if the ACC stayed intact, and the SEC only paid us $1 more I'd still want the SEC.
A 10-2 record in that conference and you're in a serious bowl game and getting PBS of respect nationally, an you basically have ESPN on their knees. In the ACC you still get mocked. Will we achieve it as often? Hell no, but it'll be fun an worth it when we do.
No one cares about other sports
So true. I'd much rather go 8-4 in the SEC than 10-2 in the ACC.
i don't believe that.
are they talked about a lot sure, the most ... only in the northeast.

They have an entire major network dedicated to their games! Beano Cook talks about them every week. The College Football Hall of Fame is located in South Bend. You just pointed out that an entire region talks about them......and that region is 600 miles from their campus. On the other side of the country, USC's biggest OOC rival: Notre Dame. What school is the biggest bully in the Big 12 pushing to try and get: Notre Dame. And they're in TEXAS!! Michigan's biggest OOC Rival? Notre Dame. At one point they'd had 169 straight games nationally televised! Why? Because they're freakin' Notre Dame!
Look, I think they're as overrated any team in any sport over the last 25 years. But there's no arguing that the media machine falls down with their legs spread trying to get to them because they have a draw just about any place in the country. I hate it. But it's a fact.
Actually the College Football Hall of Fame is moving to Atlanta.
Good. I've never understood why anyone thought people would want to go to South Bend, Indiana to visit a museum.
Plus, there is not very many things in the world as fun as an SEC game between the tailgating, pageantry, incredible game, hitting a town that is all football all the time... you guys will love it, especially the Vandy trip to Nashville. You've got to make that one (for the town, not necessarily the game). Do try to go to Ole Miss and LSU home games at some point. Awesome.
