Why would any outstanding school sign such? Few prominent schools would want to shut-off options or make it more costly if they ever decided to leave as circumstances can change quickly and unforseen events do happen. They sign these exit fee deals with their peers in mind, moreso than for themselves since departures will impacts the rest and may weaken the current conference.
The idea the ACC is suppose to be a feeder conference for the B12 was delusional and got shut-down by the named schools themselves, coupled with B12 not officially asking them. The B1G and the SEC are closer and more desirable, and where any departing ACC schools would look first if the need fell upon them. .
Sec03, just curious why are you so concerned about the ACC? Most SEC fans I know could care less about what goes on within the ACC.
Because this is the ACC thread on a Conference Realignment forum.
Yea so what.
My question for Sec02 was for having so much love for the ACC and hate for the Big 12?
The Big 12 is the conference providing some support to the SEC and not the other way around in the ACC balking against the favored BCS plan of the SEC.
SEC fans usually hate each other in the SEC must less supporting a rival conference is all I pointing out here.
Just curious is all! Why an SEC fan is likely to support the ACC at this time.
Why am I concerned about MIAA, GMAC, PWC, ECC etc in D-II, Mid South, TSAC, SAC, RRAC etc in NAIA, SEC, BE, ACC, A-Sun, CAA, SLC, etc in D-I? Because it's one of my hobbies besides flag football, NFL, fastasy fb(Conf realignment is a distant 4th to the other 3). I'm guessing a lot of us here have conf. realignment as a hobby. I'm also guessing Tute and I like it more than everyone else here since we have a notebook/spreadsheet w/ all of the D-I, D-II, D-III, NAIA, NCCAA, USCAA, CIS conferences, schools, nicknames.
