 Record attendance in Tallahassee is 84,500 (OU, 2011).  I think the avg of 72,000 is so awful due to the majority of  our OOC games.  If Noles join SEC (or even B10 for that matter), I'm guessing the stadium size would increase significantly.

 Ditto.  Yep, sure wish Saint Bobby had wanted to join the SEC.  Obviously hoping for a second chance.  Dream:  FSU joins SEC; we retire in 20 years in either Jacksonville or Pensacola depending which division/pod we're in; purchase Class A RV; go to every home/away football game and a bunch of basketball/baseball games; knock out more national championships; die with a smile on my face.

 @BobbyandBear  @eponymous  @JRsec Yes indeed.  Sure wish my man Saint Bobby would've supported it.  We'll see if we get a chance.  Latest rumor is B1G Presidents gave the ok for Delaney to get FSU.  Academic wonks would want to join the best academic conf vice best football conf.  Sports-minded alums that I know prefer SEC.  BTW, prayer has been sent ;-)

 @eponymous  @JRsec Definitely fun to think about.  Not sure we'll get a second chance.

Great read!  So tired of the ACC.  Short of the Noles somehow getting into the SEC, let me just say, I LOVE THIS SCENARIO!

Thanks, John.  Good points all.  Would love the Noles to be in that "quartet'!  Not giving up hope.  Maybe Slive will "use" FSU to block the B1G from infiltrating the great state of Florida ;-)

Speaking of when we joined the financial big dog at the time some "20 years ago", I guess the shirt I had that said "Hey SEC, Kiss my ACC" has kinda backfired :-)   Sure hope we get a second chance.

 @JansonRoberts  @buddha22 Jason, What Big 12 blogs are you reading?  Would like to see what they're saying about FSU joining.

Thousand thanks for taking the time to cobble this story together--awesome read!  Been looking forward to it since Part 3.  It's like a thirst that can't be quenched!

Another great read!  Really (I mean, REALLY) appreciate you taking the time to do this Big Bang series!  Great insight and perspective.  Looking forward to seeing how things transpire.  Appears to be a win-win for FSU -- we either join a mo betta conference (my preference) or the ACC somehow gets stronger (unlikely).

John, As one who's been following realignment since the summer (Mr SEC, Dude of WV, Frank the Tank, etc), I find myself placing a little extra faith in what you state and the articles you've posted (i.e., Big Bang, etc).  Dude has mentioned some things are expected to break mid-Jan after the Natty.  Are you hearing anything that would indicate movement in Jan?

Ditto (it's rare that I ever ditto a gator).  Same things I've heard.

I likes it!  Here's hoping something like this works out.  And with these additions, baseball and basketball would be outstanding.

Greetings, First time poster.  Been reading off and on since realignment became a possibility for the Noles back in the summer.  Really enjoy your work. 

 

FWIW, I'm an FSU grad/booster/season ticket holder.  Count me as one who looks forward to the Noles leaving the ACC!  Even if ND is all in, as well as UL joining, I am ready to hit the road.  While I'd love to join the SEC, the odds are slim.  Moving to the Big XII would be fantabulous!  I'll take games with UT, OU, OSU, TT, BU, WVU, KSU, etc (and hopefully CU) any day of the week over Duke, WF, etc. 

 

What a horrific day in CT, huh.  Blessed to see my four boys (15 and younger) when I get home. 

 

Thanks again for the post.  Takes our mind off this senseless tragedy for a minute.
