If Va. Tech goes anywhere, it will be to the SEC.

Louisville is the most likely and logical target.

FSU, Clemson and Miami might make some sense, but right now those three can dominate a league that isn't going ANYWHERE in football. Why leave? (Outside of the EXTREME geographic outlay).

Shit like this makes me wonder if some people just wander around being surprised by every little thing that happens because they only see things from their own perspective. If it works for me, it should work for everyone. USC, Florida, and tOSU to the Big XII getting half shares for the first 25 years? Makes too much sense not to happen.

Of course NWMSU probably offers more academic prestige.


Big XII replaced one football program with another. They lost MU academia wise.

Va Tech and Virginia are tied at the hip. Why leave? Why would football schools leave a basketball driven league? Agree that VA is the tough sell. But VA isnt going to SEC.

Or thinking MU is a football school?

Va Tech and UVA are not necessarily tied at the hip. Va Tech just joined the ACC in 2003, so the schools have been in the same conference less than a decade. Va Tech has shown no interest in changing conferences...and why would they? They have a much easier path to a BCS Bowl in the ACC. The only easier path would the Big East. If Florida State were to change, their path gets even easier. Makes no sense for them to move.

Oklahoma used to be really good at football. It seems like a long time ago, but it was only like three years ago.

Tied at the hip to be sure. They've been in the same conference for like 100 years, right?

MU had that one good year out of the last 40... even top 10. but since your fans travel like shit you couldnt get a BCS bowl. But hey you played for a Big XII championship .....howd that work out?

No, but they are now. You have a dynamic that being a Mizzou fan you might not understand.. A true football school, teamed with an actual Academia school. Trust me...... they arent leaving either one behind.

Even though they did for decades until recently...okay. You're all over this.

It is what it is. One doesnt move without the other. But MU is a football school. Who to believe?

Not sure where this UVA and Va Tech moving talk even came from. There is no chance of it happening. Va Tech petitioned for years to get into the ACC, they are not going to leave after just getting to the party. UVA is not a football school, they are not going to want to go anywhere either. Do you have anything you can link too that this has even been remotely thought of or discussed?

I'm not saying it's happening. I'm saying that they aren't tied at the hip, though.
