    Sounds like Syracuse and Pitt are in the ACC. So I'm wondering does this new development push a&m into the SEC and makes us draw more teams into our conference? I mean it is starting to look like the super conferences are going to be the wave of the future. I would be a fan if that means we have a better chance of getting a legitimate playoff-like national championship. Obviously we want to remain the dominate conference but my question is who do we pick up? We should get one more team (if a&m does come in) from the east realistically if this does end up as four "super conferences" we should pick up 3 or 5 more teams. So I guess this is something that has been posted previously, who you got coming in? I mean I assume if a&m comes in we should have one more for sure. What do you all think?

    for some reason, i'm having trouble stomaching the thought of WVU coming to the SEC. i can't quite put my finger on it...

    oh wait, yes i can. the majority of their fans suck.

    I would personally like to see the conference stay at 12, but thats obviously not happening with A&M coming onboard.

    aTm's fans aren't much better.
    Also, I'd rather add someone to the east, if aTm and TCU both come in, who moves to the east?
    Bama or Auburn?

    WVU sucks, they are low rent and low class. We already have Auburn, why its northern clone.

    It's not the number of teams that make a conference "super"...it's the quality of teams while everyone else is just throwing out invites based on getting to some magic number of 16 participants.

    The ACC can add Syracuse, Pitt and WVU for all I care. They're STILL a weaker conference to the SEC--even the current 12-team SEC.

    I like the SEC's approach. Target the teams that you really want--teams that actually improve an already dominant conference
