Amidst a new wave of rumors this week that linked his school with the Big 12, Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman told the Orlando Sentinel that his school is "committed to the ACC."
From Coley Harvey:
"We're in the ACC. We're committed to the ACC," Spetman said. "That's where our president and the board of trustees has committed to, so we're great partners in the ACC.
"I don't know why people have written that," he later added. "I don't know how they can say that — and I don't mean to pick on the media — but how can the media person come out and say that there was a Florida State person in a meeting that wasn't true? How can they get away with that? To my knowledge, nobody from our organization was there. So I don't know how they can get away with saying that."
As Harvey notes in a follow-up blog post, yes, many are still skeptical about Spetman's comments. We've all seen similar steps throughout conference realignment chatter with the denials and non-denials, which eventually end up meaning nothing. There are plenty of pros and cons for FSU in each conference. I'd have to think right now, however, there is too much working against a move for the Seminoles any time soon.
