Sounds like they are in talks with the XII, along with Clemson. That makes no sense.

Probably because they burned their ACC bridge before confirming there was interest from either the SEC or Big Ten

I don't think there's much chance they're going to get out of the ACC anyway, so it's not really a burned bridge.

I do find it amusing that the greedy B1G that directly caused the catastrophic and spectacular implosion of the PAC-12, is calling out FSU as being "disruptive."  That is LOL worthy.

The PAC caused their own demise. Larry Scott has blood on his hands.

The B1G didn't have to expand. It chose to.  It destroyed the PAC.  Directly.

That's how it works, but I wish it were different. I'd much rather they'd gone after FSU, Miami, UVA and UNC than what they ended up with.

Texas, aTm, OU, Colorado and the others to the PAC would have certainly destroyed the XII. Who were the other two at the time? Was Kansas included? Tech?

The PAC would be alive and well, while the likes of KSU, oSu and Baylor would be in the woods.

The PAC's lack of non-Texas/OU options probably ultimately killed it.  As someone who has played around with realignment possibilities as much as anyone, the PAC simply couldn't add to keep pace with the growing P5 conferences.

It was originally Texas, Colorado, Texas A&M, OU, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech.  Then Texas A&M had (justifiable) second thoughts and said "nope, no need to negotiate on our behalf, if we have to go somewhere we'd rather look eastward."  That paused the proceedings long enough for Disney and Fox to come back to the table with a deal that was good enough to keep the B12 relatively close to the B1G/SEC at the time, so there was no longer any will to separate.  But Colorado went ahead and jumped anyway, they'd long desired the PAC even well back into the old Big8 days.

And I'm not disputing the way of the world, I just find it amusing that someone representing the B1G would label FSU as "disruptive" when it was the B1G that outright destroyed the PAC, a conference it supposedly had "an alliance" with. It's not the activity itself, but rather the hypocrisy.

The PAC actually killed its alliance with the B1G. That was the first self-inflicted dagger.
