Rumors are just rumors until the papers are signed and everything else is set in stone. Talks have surrounded Texas A&M and the likelihood of them departing the Big 12 for the SEC.  Still, it's all speculation until the move is actually done.

Now FSU has been rumored to be the next target for the SEC, according to WarChant.com. If Texas A&M joins the conference, that will make 13 teams, so they would almost certainly be pursuing another team to make the East and West divisions equal.

So would the Seminoles be a good fit? Would you like to see them in the SEC battling the likes of Auburn, LSU, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida every season?

Personally, I think they would be a perfect fit. Why not jump into a conference that is regarded as the top conference in the country? It makes sense if head coach Jimbo Fisher wants to continue to rebuild the program.

They would be challenged week in and week out unlike they are in the ACC. I am not trying to take anything away from the ACC, but let's face it—the SEC is the far superior conference. 

According to WarChant, Fisher told a source that they're going to the SEC if they are asked, noting that the coaching staff is on board.

We all had to know that Fisher would jump at the chance to rejoin the SEC.

If they did join the conference, they would play alongside the Gators in the East Division. It would only intensify the heated rivalry between the two. Not only would they be playing for bragging rights, but more than likely they would be battling for the right to play in the SEC championship game.

Of course, all of this is just speculation as of now. However, could you entertain the thought of the Seminoles in the SEC? I sure can, and I hope it happens sooner rather than later.
