Florida State To Form Committee To Explore Realignment, According To Report

It seems we're getting even closer to a superconference, as news is coming out of Florida State that the administration will form a committee to explore switching conferences or bringing some Texas-sized help to the ACC.

Per The Palm Beach Post:

With recent talk of a possible formation of four super conferences, Andy Haggard, chairman of FSU's board of trustees, said Tuesday that his school has begun forming a committee that will explore the university's options. He says FSU should be prepared for any scenario, whether it's moving to another conference or staying in the ACC and having a say in who else may join the league. That could mean Texas...    

Haggard went on to say that FSU has not been contacted by the SEC to become the potential 14th member of the league — and that he has no idea whether ACC rival Miami has either — and that the Seminoles are "very happy" in the ACC.

One interesting note from the interview is Haggard hypothesizing as to the college sports landscape after realignment:

"If you are going to four conferences of 16 teams we certainly want to be ready," Haggard said. "If the ACC is included in that we want to be sure we are included and have a say so in regard to the teams that are coming into our conference."    

Four 16-teamers? The Pac-12, SEC, ACC and Big 10 would be the most likely. That sounds pretty cool, I gotta say — and it would be perfect for a playoff-style postseason. Again, just saying.
