FSU Moving To SEC Inevitable?

SPETMAN (Mike Ewen/Tallahassee Democrat) 
Look, it’s easy, no matter how hard they try, sometimes the truth just slips out.

In several articles today about how FSU is “comfortable” in the ACC but willing to investigate change, Athletic Director Randy Spetman said, “I have no magic message but we do know the collegiate structure is changing. Television has driven it to where it is.”

Spetman then said that FSU’s share of the ACC television contract is between $13 and $14 million, compared to $24 million that each of the Pac-12 conference members receive.

“The move now for extending the size of a conference is TV contracts,” Spetman said. “That’s the only way to make more money.”

And that (making money), loyal readers is what it’s all about!

If Florida State would be approached by another conference, any decision on leaving the ACC would have to be Eric Barron’s, Haggard said. The university president was traveling Wednesday and not immediately available to comment.

Rumor has it that he was in Birmingham, Alabama...which just happens to be where the SEC headquarters are located.

Just sayin’...
