If the ACC really doesn't get increased money from adding two teams, then you'll have Va Tech or NC State in play. If the ACC gets enough money to make those schools happy, things get really interesting. Of course, they have over two years to sort things out before Pitt and Syracuse join.

I'm not sure there's going to be a "next go around." The Big 12 looks to be stable for the next 5-6 years, against all odds.

The Big East is sorting itself out. What will hold them together is there's no place else for their teams to go. The ACC is already regretting 14, they're not going to jump first on 16. The SEC isn't interested in any of the remaining BE schools. The only way another BE school goes ACC is if the SEC poaches a NC State or VT for 14.

T. Boone Pickens is pushing A&M HARD to return to the Big 12. Nobody thinks in any way that will be successful, but that's going on.
This stuff is officially crazy.

I can't believe I have been following it this closely.

They have been trying to get into the Big East for years and have submitted a formal application at least three other times.

DP you see no chance at all that SEC could steal a couple ACC schools if their TV deal doesn't get reworked?
VT, NC St., and FSU specifically.

I could see them taking VT or NC State, IF the ACC's quick expansion leads to less total money for each school. That's the only way an ACC school would leave for the SEC.

I don't see a situation where the SEC takes three schools and jumps to 16 unless prompted to do so by other movements.

Florida State is an interesting situation. The smart money says there's no way they make a move. Their recent actions, however, show that they don't want to make it any harder on themselves if they do decide to leave.

Hey DeerPark12,

Have you gotten any credible wind of any existing members wanting to leave the ACC?

ECU has applied literally 27 times to the Big East. Nothing will change from this

If the ACC schools and Missouri are off the table, I'm wondering how the SEC would weigh staying at 13 vs. adding a less desirable school.

Would you rather stay at 13 and play a weird, unbalanced schedule every year...or add a team like WVU, Louisville, or ECU just to even it out? I'm not sure I like either option.

I don't think the ACC is off the table. Originally the exit fees were going to be $34M.
FSU, Maryland and an unidentified school talked it down to $20.

Coincidentally, schools that have been rumored SEC candidates.

I bet Va Tech is #3.

No. But as we've learned throughout this expansion talk, what's true today isn't necessarily true tomorrow.

But from everything I've seen and heard, the ACC schools see no reason to leave. FSU is, however, preventing any new rules from coming up that would eventually block something like that.

Obviously Florida would be opposed, but now that there's less risk of adding other schools, I don't think that Florida/SC/UGA/UK "agreement" not to vote for schools in those states is nearly as strong as it was before.

It also looks like the best possible move the BE could make. Losing Pitt and Syracuse didn't really hurt the BE's football prestige that much. That conference is more than half directional schools anyway. ECU would raise the football prestige a bit.

Mizzou press conference notes:

"-Mizzou excited about the progress being made for the Big XII and aware that there is still work to be done.
-Did not confirm or deny that the SEC was an option to look at, but it seems clear that the Big XII is in the forefront of Mizzou's thought process, and if it should prove to be a stable conference based on ongoing discussion Mizzou is likely to stay"

Shouldn't be a surprise there, they were at the fore-front of trying to hold that conference together (without, well you know, threatening legal action and suits)
