Morning Bump and Run [5.14.2012] – Boom goes the ACC

Florida State ready to leave the ACC?

Via Reddit.

Just when you though the weekend was going slowly, this article from gets everyone hopping with the possibility that Florida State will leave the ACC for the Big 12, quite possibly one of the most successful pieces ever written on the network. In short, Florida State Board of Trustees Chair Andy Haggard ripped the ACC for not exploring more lucrative options in their new television contract with ESPN, which looked good on paper at first but actually lacked financial benefits that play in favor of a school like Florida State.

The statements made by Haggard led Florida State to issue a statement with regret of the misinformation that was quickly put to the test by some, and reaffirmed their commitment to the ACC. But it does seem that if there was anything that was going to persuade Florida State to leave the ACC, the television deal may have been it. Dan Wetzel suggests it was the last straw.

Of course, if Florida State were to leave the ACC for the Big 12, who would join them to put the conference back to 12 teams? Clemson? Virginia Tech? Notre Dame? We’ll see.
