FSU To Big 12 Rumors Picking Up Despite No Mainstream Reports

Not to belittle the efforts of the many smaller sites reporting the Florida St. Seminoles are inching closer and closer to the Big 12, but you'd really like to see something from a more traditional outlet on the subject before lending too much confidence to the story. There was this report from an Atlanta radio host's site over the weekend, followed by similar notices from multiple other lesser-known outlets, all while nothing's coming across the big tickers.

And for what it's worth, the officials involved are sticking with the party line, now that FSU's rebel contingent has been at least publicly quieted:

"The athletic directors ... seemed very comfortable with 10 [teams]," [former interim Big 12 commissioner Chuck] Neinas told Austin's "The Horn" KTXX-FM (104.9) on Monday. "But there's nothing more consistent in life than change. Right now, people seem to be satisfied with 10."

If the Noles and a friend or two do end up making the leap to the Big 12, it won't exactly be a surprise at this point, but it will be a move that was reported every step of the way by largely unfamiliar websites, even going back to several months ago. How do we feel about that?
