According to Paul Finebaum, he thinks the SEC should target North Carolina over Clemson to join the conference...

“I would go for North Carolina first because they really hit a lot of different boxes,” Finebaum said, (first transcribed by Saturday Down South).

“For one, they are the dominant university in one of the 10 or 11 largest states in the country. That doesn’t matter as much as it used to from a television footprint. But they do cover a lot there. They have a respectable football program, and they have an elite basketball program, which I don’t think, again, is driving anyone other than a few out west. They just bring a lot to the table overall.”

Exactly. I think the SEC aims for 20 and tries to get everyone's major rival within the conference. This might mean Ok St and Ga Tech come in and Missouri leaves.

I would HATE it if the sec added fsu and clemson. I would much rather see them both fade away into an acc/aac combined mess.

UNC and Texas as the new guard lobbying for control over the old birmingham power brokers would be a s**tshow.

We could do worse, I'll give him that

NCSU would most likely have to tag along..which wouldn't be a bad combo. But this is discussed each time so not some kind of great call by PF. UVA/VATech would be better than Clemson/FSU too.

One too many Tigers as there are. And I'm not talking about the ones in the West

I agree. If you take the heart of the ACC out, I think any number of NC State, Duke, Wake, And Virginia follow.

I know everyone thinks basketball does not matter but Duke/Carolina is an asset you would want.

Agree. Most desirable property in the ACC. And if you don’t take them, the B1G will. Would like to see them and one other (UVA or NCSU).

I'd like to see Florida State, Ga Tech, Clemson and Tulane. I think bringing these in state rivals would help the SEC. FLorida, USe and UGA are done with their conference before most teams. Need to have that "conference" game on rivalry weekend.

I would like to see none! Leave the damn conferences alone! Sad to see conferences destroyed all about the money.

There will so many egos in the SEC that in 20 years it'll split into two different conferences.

At what point do we have the big college conferences drop the amateur status, commit to a professional league and create their own league?

Doesn't hurt that he lives in Charlotte now. Because his show originates from there.
