More Rumors about FSU going to Big 12!

Jim Lamar from the Tallahassee Democrat seems sure, the ACC has cause for concern.

Firstly there is the financial situation Lamar points out: “Oklahoma State President Burns Hargis announced last Friday that the Big 12 agreed to distribute $19 million to eight of its members to close out the 2011-12 fiscal year. Departing members Missouri and Texas A&M did not receive payouts; neither did incoming members TCU andWest Virginia.”

Right now, FSU is in a position where an extra few million dollars would go a long way. Doak Campbell Stadium needs renovations, the basketball coaches need a raise, and the athletic department had coffers to replenish.

Lamar notes that the new additions won’t be compensated fully until later: “TCU and West Virginia will only be given a 50-percent share and will not receive full shares until 2016.”

So if the ACC dissolves and FSU and Clemson head Big 12 (or should I say Big 14), what will happen to schools like UMD and Miami?
