Florida State crossroad

Florida State joined the ACC during a period when the Seminoles were at or near the top of the football world, and they have enjoyed some really good times as a member of the conference.  But now the 'Noles have fallen from the top 10 in the polls, and they have fallen upon tough times financially (the athletic budget for 2012-13 projects a $2.4 million deficit). What to do?

Meanwhile, the Big-12 conference has risen from what looked just one year ago like its own ashes.  Now with only ten member, the conference is once again among the most profitable, and despite having fewer teams, arguably the strongest football conference on the field in 2011-12.

Lately there has been much talk that maybe Florida State should turn the page on the ACC, pay the $20 million exit fee, and join the Big-12.  But would that make the most sense? What are the pros and cons?  Should the Seminoles stay, or should they go?

For a detailed analysis of the pros & cons of moving from the ACC to the Big12, please see "What can FSU do - Stay or Go" (or click on the picture above).
