Default GT to Big 10 after Champ game

Rumor is all over twitter today coming from a source from Ohio State apparently.

That, and this is a great read on expansion and the ACC:

Quote:
Sources at Ohio State University tell me that GT has already applied to the Big 10 and received an offer. If that’s true I would expect GT to decide shortly after the ACC championship game.

Big TV market. Makes perfect sense. Plus, GT was 11th in the ACC in profits. So it makes sense to them too.

Atlanta is a split market HEAVILY with UGA and the pro teams. Ga Tech doesn't really get that much of the viewing audience. Ever go to a Tech baseball game? You'd be surprised at how many people don't attend even when they are on a winning streak

Weird because the Big 10 has said they only like to add schools in states that are contiguous to other Big 10 states.

GT would be pretty far away from the nearest Big 10 state.

Well, the extra revenue would be nice. But I hate that Tech will be leaving some of its traditional rivals (Clemson, Va Tech, etc.) and this just means that attendance will drop even more...

If GT leaves, I wonder if Louisville will rethink their move to the dying Athletically Challenged Conference.

IF it is true I don't think they will be the only ones going. I would bet the big 10 would take a NC school and or a virgina school or florida school and Tech knows this if they're accepting the bid. BTW, you buying this GT?

Like said before, doesn't matter if Atlanta never turns on the Big Ten network.
Atlanta will still be paying the Big Ten for it

Stupid for GA tech AND THE B10

Ga Tech: Oh boy, recruits sure will love to hear they have to travel up north for almost every game, and go to a conference that inthe south is considered very "boring". Two, they will be worse off athletically BY FAR.. enjoy not making a bowl game for a long time (B10 will eat that option alive).

B10: You get Georgia.. Tech??? Sure academically they are great, but this has to do with $$ and athletics. Ga Tech is struggling in that area, they can barely compete in the weaker ACC in football, and are terrible now in basketball. They have a meh fan base, and bringing them into the Big 10 will only make it worse.. do you think ANY Ga tech fan will travel up to the frigid north to watch them get slaughtered? Their fans will all but disappear, what's the point? Their nearest foe will be..hell I don't know they are all so far away haha!

This makes zero sense either way (yeah GaT wants $$, but you are going to cripple your athletic program and fans doing so), and makes me hate the B10 even more now (for some reason I have always hated the B10.. maybe because their games are always so boring, or they think too highly of themselves, not sure)

ACC is not going to feel this loss at all, only academically

If they go, how long you think FSU and Clemson and the Va schools are going to risk being frozen out of an automatic bid into the postseason? Could be the death of the ACC as a "BCS" conference. If either the Big 12 or the ACC is going to die, who is your money on?

Well the Big 12 has already signed a deal with the Champions Bowl (Sugar) and haven't had any changes in the conference.


The ACC recently signed one with the orange bowl. You'd assume with all the changes the orange bowl can get out of that, right?
(the orange bowl in the future will be ACC vs SEC, B10 or ND)
