    That will help force Notre Dame's hand into joining the Big 10. Hopefully this means a couple of Big 12 schools can get in there as well, like Missouri or Kansas. The SEC won't be poaching any ACC teams after this, so I would expect them to go for some more Big 12 schools and Big East schools.

    I wouldn't be so sure that FSU and Clemson won't leave the ACC. The ACC is going heavy basketball. Maybe they caught wind that one of their big football schools wants to leave.

    The ACC just voted unanimously to increase its exit fees from 12-14 million to 20 million for any school that leaves. Nobody is going anywhere in that conference.

    Sounds like UConn is about to bail too... I think Big East is officially dissolving.
