BIG10 reaching out to UVA,UNC & Georgia Tech

Big 10 talk buzzing again. #UVA being mentioned often as likely to join. Georgia Tech still in the mix. #UNC, the big domino, has an offer.

Been saying for while that UVa and Georgia Tech would end up in Big Ten. Interesting to see if that happens anytime soon.

Don't like it. I really think the SEC needs to own NC and VA.

If UMD can get out of its exit fee, bye bye ACC.

I hate conference realignment, the SEC just waters down its product.

I thought they were going to the Big 10 already.


Does this leave Duke hanging out to dry?

People always wanna say we added MO for tv markets. I get that but why didn't we look up the east coast. There are plenty of tv's in between Columbia and DC that also provide a talent pool.

Virginia and Tech? Another academic feather in the cap of the Big10...and...and an awful football addition.

Upping the prestige, dragging down the sports.

Wish we'd have let MO go to the Big 10 and worked on picking up Va Tech, NC and Duke.

I think NC and Duke would balk at the SEC, not so much the Big 10 for academic reasons.

If UVa bolts for the Big 10 and VT doesn't get an invite, then the Commonwealth's legislature will not object to VT making the move to the SEC, the question I'd have, is will they exert the pressure on UVa to stay in the ACC?

I think this would be the SEC's targets anyway. NC State for sure, then either VA or VA Tech.

Duke and UNC are tied at the hip, where one goes the other goes.

You don't know the history on Missouri. Missouri is in the SEC because the B1G didn't want them. They were spurned and had nowhere to go.

I was really hoping the SEC would add Virginia and North Carolina. I wonder if there is anyway we can lobby to get one of them for Missouri, who is utterly useless.

Woohoo! More second-tier, A&M schools!

Give me Virginia and North Carolina any day over these two.

UNC would certainly be the first option, but if they don't want to join, then what?

I note also that is only 15 teams, who is #16?

Also would this have FSU and Clemson begging to join the Big12?

Virginia and then Clemson, Duke, Florida State, or Georgia Tech.
