Default Would Clemson leave the ACC for Big 12?

Dabo said at the beginning of the year that joining the BIG 12 would be the worst thing Clemson could do because they are the ACC. Question now is, does Clemson bolt to the BIG 12 or does Clemson remain in the ACC to give an impression of being the powerhouse of a conference like Boise State?

Taterville Tech will never leave the Athletically Challenged Conference. Their President and Board of Directors do not have the balls or vision to see the writing on the wall. Their President does not realize the importance a winning football program can have on the preception and growth of a university.Taterville Tech will continue in their new role as the tallest midget.

Default Re: Would Clemson leave the ACC for Big 12?

I think that's where there's a disconnect between what the fans want and what the administration wants. I can see FSU bolting, but I have a feeling that Clemson will stay right where they are.

Nope. As Dabo said "They are the ACC." Dabo likes the All Cupcake Conference.

If Clemson goes to the Big XII then Dabo knows his job is gone, if he stays in the ACC and wins the fastest fat kid race his job is safe, but he will continue to get cocksmacked by Carolina.

No way they want to leave to a conference where they will be challenged, I have a feeling they like the status quo and being told what to do by Tobacco Road.

If they want to be a part of the new mega conferences then they will leave for the Big 12, otherwise they will be left in the dust and will only have a chance at the National championship when the playoff system goes to 8 games.

So how would an ACC team get into the playoffs even with 8 teams? Take a look where the top ranked ACC team will be this week, 20 maybe?

In my honest opinion, Clemson needs a change if they want to become legitimately competitive again instead of just dominating such a weak conference.

Yeah I can will agree with this. The problem is the options (which is the Big XII) is not overly great. The closest school in that conference is West Virginia begin 500 miles, with the average distance of the conference schools as a whole being roughly 1000 miles. This might work for football, but for all sports there are going to be some travel issues.

i could see.
1. fsu joining the big 12
2. nc state joining the sec
3. va tech joining the sec

if those moves indeed came to pass it would leave clemson miami and unc as top level fb teams. with that and their ooc schedule, they should always win 11.

Doesn't Moo U have to pay $50 million to leave? Where are they going to get that kind of money? The boosters are still recouping their money from the Tammy Bowden swindle.

I think you've brought up one thing that isn't discussed enough when realignment is the topic. But WVU is currently dealing with the situation you mentioned. If they can do it, I think Clemson can. And that would give both schools at least one opponent that is closer than the vast majority of the rest.

The only way Clemson goes to the Big 12 is if some other East Coast teams go as well.
