Clemson and Florida State to the Big 12? • The Voice Of Motown

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — The Big 12 Conference has already established itself as one of the top three conferences in college sports, and it could soon be about to get a whole lot better!

According to reports today from Ross Dellenger by Yahoo Sports And John Kurtz from KC Sports Network there have been “early conversations” about Florida State and Clemson joining the Big 12 in the near future!

Dellenger said today, “There are at least early conversations between the Big 12 and those schools about the possibility.”

As you may know, Florida State is already trying to leave the ACC and Clemson obviously wants to get off that sinking ship, especially if Florida State leaves.

With an already strong conference, adding teams like Florida State and Clemson would likely move the Big 12 into the second-best conference in the country, ahead of the Big Ten, and could also give the SEC a run for the top conference.

Earlier today at Big 12 Media Days, Big 12 Commissioner Brett Yormark made it clear that he’s not done expanding the conference. “I’m not going to stop until the Big 12 is the best conference in America,” Yorkmark said. “We’re one of the top three conferences right now, and we’re getting better and better. Think about where we were 24 months ago and where we are now.”

Yormark added Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Utah to the conference this season after losing Oklahoma and Texas to the SEC. While Texas and Okahoma are big losses, the current conference is deep from top to bottom and may give West Virginia an even better chance to compete for conference championships.
