Big Ten makes the most sense for long term financial stability AND academics. FSU's football reputation is elite. Joining the SEC would keep be a good money maker and a geographic fit, but a big step down academically and in basketball, where the SEC is consistently the worst basketball conference.
However joining The Big Ten will make FSU the most money, while bolstering both its academic reputation, and its basketball program.

Complete unprofessionalism by ESPN to allow such blatent bias by Mark May. The double standards of turning a blind eye to serious scandal after scandal in the SEC make me believe it's about ESPN TV contract with the SEC, and ACC, and the money they make from it.
Ever since they lowballed Big Ten in their last negotiation, Delaney called their bluff and formed the wildly successful Big Ten Network. While Mays vendetta goes to the72-0 Pitt loss to OSU, ESPN s vendetta against the Big Ten traces back to the Big Ten Networks creation with Fox. Thus ESPN allows May lack of journalistic integrity to be biasly used as a bully national pulpit against OSU, the Big Ten, and a select few of Mays most hated schools.

The point is Mark Mays unprofessionalism, and bias damages ESPNs credibility. ESPN has blatantly turned its head to rampant cheating, payments to players in the SEC for years, because it's TV contract butters it's bread. OSU and most Big Ten schools (due to the success of the Big Ten Network) will continue to get unfairly slammed by ESPNs vandetta.
It's sad journalism has sunk to such double standards
