08:36 AM ET 05.20 | Though a Yahoo story suggested the Big 12 - which has more a lucrative TV deal than the Atlantic Coast Conference - might pursue Florida State and Miami, two UM Board of Trustee members said it hasn't been discussed inside UM and they could not envision Miami being interested. One pointed out UM would need to pay more than $15 million in ACC exit fees even if it wanted to move.

If money is all they are after, then yeah. Play the games on Wall Street.

Agreed. Last year people were forecasting the death of the Big 12.

He may still be sitting in his corner repeatedly saying FSU isn't going anywhere. Miami has told B12 no thanks supposedly but that may have been premature with recent announcements.

I've not read that FSU is leaving the ACC. So, do you have a link to the news of such?

If they can't see that there's gonna be alot more money to be made in the New CFB World Order that's coming, then natural selection will leave them behind.

Sorry, svt, hope your Board of Trustee members wake the hell up.

Nothing official yet but do not be surprised if (when) it happens.

But things could change given the BCS is still discussing their playoff system and won't announce anything until then end of June or July. I dont remember which.

No, not really. There is no need to wait anymore, not since the SEC and B12 announced their new bowl game. The ACC is locked out of being a meaningful FB conference and FB is where the money is. Any school that wants to remain relevant in FB should be looking to get out of the ACC.

Yep... the train is leaving the station. Anyone interested had better hop aboard.

The B12/SEC bowl deal is a game changer of the highest magnitude.
