I know, I know, we don't want FSU to get the financial benefit of being in the SEC, it wouldn't bring in a "new market" for the SEC Network, they had their chance in 1992 but declined, etc. I'm aware of all of the reasons we should technically be against it. But here's the deal. Whether we want to admit it or not, FSU is "back." By that I mean, their roster is loaded and it is the 90's again where they can ride a weak ACC schedule to easy top four finishes. See 1987-2000. When you have just 2-3 real games a year, it's a huge advantage in the Natty race. And now that we're moving to the four-team playoff, their path to playing for a national championship just got easier as there will be more margin for error. Meanwhile, we are soon going to be playing a nine-game SEC schedule + FSU + potential SEC Championship Game to to get into that same four-team playoff. All else being equal, which program do you think is going to get into that playoff more often? We currently lead them in the national championship department 3-2. That lead means more to me as a fan than whatever financial benefit they would get from being in our conference. Some say that we don't want FSU in the SEC because of recruiting. Really? Look at their recruiting classes already. Hard to see recruiting for them going any better than it already is. If anything, playing in the SEC will lead to more losses, less playoff appearances, and lower perception of the actual strength of the program. That perceived strength is inflated when you feast on an ACC schedule. And making the playoffs while playing an ACC schedule more often than not will only help their recruiting. At least in the SEC they would face stiffer competition. Their road to a playoff appearance wouldn't be quite as easy. Our roads would be the exact same. As for our own road, nothing would change as we play them already anyways. Might as well make it an SEC East game. As a fan, how exciting would it be to have our version of the Iron Bowl, an in-state rival that is also a division game that could once in a while act as an SEC East Title Game and determine who goes to Atlanta? If FSU is an SEC game, perhaps it allows us to schedule a home and home OOC game against other big name programs once a blue moon. In regards to TV money, I know it's not a "new market" but I have to think that CBS would be willing to step up our deal if it meant access to games like FSU-BAMA, FSU-UGA, FSU-LSU, etc. I really would like to know if there's any truth to the rumor that we (UF) are against this move and if so, I think we should reconsider. I hope that the SEC eventually goes to 16 and that FSU is part of that plan. They should be in the SEC East over Mizzou.
