SEC Expansion: Is Virginia Tech the Wild Card Here?
Talks of SEC expansion continue as conference presidents may or may not be meeting today to discuss inviting Texas A&M to join the league, and Texas A&M will hold a regents meeting on Monday.
But as talk continues to swirl around the possible 14th member, with names such as Florida State, Clemson and Missouri thrown out there, the one wild card in all of this could be Virginia Tech.
Tech is an ACC member school with an obvious geographic fit with SEC schools. While its basketball teams have pulled some great upsets here and there, VaTech still had difficulty competing in ACC hoops, so a jump to the SEC might help the basketball program.
In football, the Hokies have had one of the best and most consistent programs in the ACC in years, and despite recent non-conference losses to Stanford, Boise State and, gulp, James Madison, this is a football program that can most definitely hold its own in the SEC.
It will be interesting to see where VaTech fits if the SEC expands to 14 or even 16 schools.
