To me it's about the money and the presteige that the SEC offers. I'll admit it's a bit shallow but the ACC just doesn't come close to the SEC at this time.
The ACC has the potential but it requires a lot of schools get really serious about the game of football. Even given this it will take a lot of years to gain the respect they need to be seriously considered in the same breath as the SEC. Jmo
I could see from an administration standpoint that it wouldn't make sense for a jump to the SEC. The complaint is that the ACC is a basketball conference but so what?. What we need to do is produce a good football team and let the rest take care of itself, SEC has good basketball teams in a football conference don't they? With the addition of so called basketball schools Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Louisville ( who we would have trouble competing with in football) and with Notre Dame coming in and willing to give up 6 games to the ACC, there isn't much reason to do anything right now.
