They may have

been "serial re-aligners" then, but I would say that has diminished significantly to little if any interest in leaving the Big 12. Their absolute best situation is in the Big 12, and they finally set aside the so called academic platitudes (which is nothing but feel good window dressing to satisfy small dicks and academic wonks) and realized that they have the best of every world in the Big 12.
Plus, there's lots of smoke about the ACC imploding and no "my family member used to coach at . . . or my aunt is" talk is going to alter that reality. The ACC is on the fringes of being in serious trouble, I can see it as I've lived in ACC and on the fringes of SEC country for nearly 2 decades now. The FSU and Clemson's of the world have finally come to the conclusion that Tobacco Road and Basketball rules the ACC and the ACC additions did nothing to change there minds on that. Virginia Tech isn't that far behind them, no matter how much people say they "owe" Virginia.
This talk is a lot more realistic than the "47 virgins" TV contract Tigerboard thinks the SEC is going to get . . . when more then just a few TV experts are saying that contract is going to be easier posted on a message board than being made reality.
