You have no favorite boards.
If you had these to pick from, which would be your top and second choice?
Mizzou, WVU, NCST, Clemson, FSU, VT, GA Tech
Personally, if I disregard the TV aspect (can't really get away with that though), I would go for Clemson and FSU. True geographic fits, commitment to football, natural rivals in the SEC. Not assuming they would even be interested.
Mizzou and VT are attractive for big TV markets. Not sure how much TV market NCST brings, as the ACC would still have 3 of the top 4 schools in NC.
I would prefer VT. Any of the others mentioned would be fine except WV. Worse place I have ever been for a football game.
VT, it's a big market.
..........BEAT BAMA .........BEAT BAMA.......BEAT BAMA
I think Clemson or FSU both an easy drive for away games. I don't think either will come but who know's.
Oh no he didn't
Clemson. Good fit and look at the ties to Auburn - as Louis Grizzard used to say "Clemson is Auburn with a lake". Good fan base. VT is not a good idea. UWV - I hope not. Heard to many horror stories about UWV from the VT fan base here,
Clemson fits the SEC mold the best for sure.... VT has the benefit of another marker plus a pretty competitive program. Either one would be a good addition IMO.

VA Tech, great market, play SEC style of football. And would keep us in the West.

In that order. Hell no to WVU.
VT, FSU, Mizzou, NCST, Tech, Clemson, WVU
VT would be a good fit. I think the ACC's days are numbered just like the Big 12.
Boston College will go back to the Big East and Maryland will go with them. Both of those schools are a much better fit for the Big East.
Miami is going on a vacation from college athletics for a couple of years.
If you are in the ACC you have to start to wonder how long the conference will survive as a BCS conference. FSU, GT, & Clemson will need to look at other options. If super conferences do become a reality then I think we see an ACC/Big East merger. The top basketball conference in the country becomes a reality.
T-A&M is the first domino to fall. Oklahoma is PAC-12 bound and the Big 12 is crumbling.
One ACC school is headed to the SEC and other ACC schools are going to start looking at options. They know that if the SEC decides to go to 16 teams that the ACC conference is toast. Some schools in the ACC are going to be proactive and make the move while they have choices and not wait around.
The Big East will survive and actually get stronger because they don't have any schools that anyone else wants. Nobody is going to raid the Big East for football talent.
1) Ga Tech
Spent the week between Christmas and New Years at Disney World with the WVU and had my fill of them. I pretty sure the tooth brush was invented on the WVU campus because anywhere else would have named it the TEETH BRUSH.
NC State would be a good fit. I lived in Raleigh. They feel more like an SEC school. It would bring the NC market. I think they would struggle to compete but they would be a nice TV addition. Second choice would be VT. I actually think they'd fit it well. The school itself is a lot like Auburn, IMO.
I think FSU has no chance.
I'll be very disappointed if it's WVU. Their fans were terrible.
Mo. and AU to the east!

Would love to see Auburn to the SEC East!
