I took the tone of the article as putting down UNC and DUKE in addition to those schools...

UNC, DUKE and Syracuse are all teams I would want in a league over Clemson. I'll give you Pitt...

I'm sorry but Clemson has always had an extremely over-inflated view of themselves.

Article put down the ACC as being basketball driven. Clemson fans are looking at it from a football perspective. Be a coup if the Big 12 could poach the ACC of the football schools. Wont happen, but would create the needed stability. Get the 4 from the ACC add Louisville and BYU for a 16 team conference.

No thanks, we already have our quota of "Basketball Schools".

If the goal is breaking KU's string of conference football losses (what is it now, 15?), yes. If its building a strong and stable conference, no.

If Clemson was this great football school I would be on board.

They have a pretty good fanbase so no, they wouldn't hurt the conference.

They just aren't nearly the name that UNC, Duke and Syracuse are.

Yeah, they are just dying to get into the Big 12 I'm sure.

I love stability.

Do you even know what an endowment is?

I assume the answer is no since you think it is some sort of proxy for university/athletic dept/conference stability.

No one is making conference membership decisions based on endowments. Endowments don't generate TV revenue.
