I sure hope it's not true. I hope the administration is smart enough to realize that the negatives probably outweigh the positives, but who knows anymore.

Big 12 has a grant of rights, ain't goin anywhere for 13 years. Watch for UVA to be next target then the SEC will field calls from NC State and Virginia Tech.

Also, the big 12 is loving their 10 team conference now. The title game could actually hurt them in the 4 team playoff. Could see them standing pat for a while.

I hate this realignment shit... $$$$$ all it is

Guess it's turning more and more into the pros

What's worse is that basketball is an afterthought (definitely should not be).. ACC right now with all the future members has the best basketball conference perhaps ever.

And the ACC loses nothing by them leaving.. neither school has contributed much athletically or fan support wise the past half decade or so. Pitt/Cuse/Louisville are 10x more attractive options, even ND basketball only > GT or UVA

Couple of other items to consider here. 1. The teams that they will play. Atl is a city that draws from all over. People move for work, etc. there will be plenty of big 10 fans in that city that will buy whatever programming is thrown their way. 2. Regardless of who watches, the big10 can spin the potential numbers to advertisers in that city.

They will not lose money on this opportunity. And that is what college football is all about... Apparently

Default Re: GT to Big 10 after Champ game

Think this is a goal of the 4 mega conferences? get 16 teams by 2014?

Acc and Big East are getting pummeled. Makes me think that the "4 team playoff" will end up being the conference champ of each mega conference : / Adding in a co division game would make it a little better it would imitate a 16 team playoff in a way.

Scratch that. about conference champ. We need the best 4 teams.

When will people understand- its not about how big of a fanbase a school might have in the media market, it's just having access to that media market. That doesn't mean you can invite a MAC team from a big market, but GT does have history.

Not just the media market, it's the state.

IMO, immediately. The concern with the SEC inviting Va Tech was a "package deal" with UVa. If the Wahoos go to the BIG10, I would expect the SEC to immediately go after Va Tech and possibly NC State with a brief attempt at UNC.

If UVa goes to the BIG10, you can bet that (a) Va Tech has talked to the SEC and (b) UVa met with Va Tech about the move, per state interest. That meeting went like this:

UVa: "So, would you care to venture on a BIG10 trip?" *sips Tom Collins*
Va Tech: *smirks and slowly shakes head while leaning back in his chair*
UVa: "By george, I would appreciate some sort of response, good sir!" *checks pocket watch using monocle* "We haven't much time."
Va Tech: "Nah. We'll be alright." *gets up, sliding chair six feet behind him. forcefully pushes door open. stops right outside the door, puts on shades, smiles, and walks way.

Default Re: GT to Big 10 after Champ game

Don't know why GT would go.
Travel cost alone for non-revenue sports would be awful...they don't bring much athletically...not much of a TV market because Atlanta ain't that good of a sports town, and GT doesn't have a large following.

I call BS on this rumor.
If the Big 10 wants more teams, why not go after VT, or Syracuse or Pitt...more geographical, better fan bases and they actually bring something to the table on the court, and bring some natural rivalries.
