Tough to blame aTm for leaving, especially in the wake of all that has happened. At least they are smart enough to realize they need to get out of the ridiculous arrangement in the new TEXAS + those other 9 teams conference.
I still don't understand what the SEC gains by taking Clemson. They've got a presence in SC, and Clemson is no prize. They're coached by Dabo frickin Sweeney. No team coached by him will ever win anything aside from a minor bowl. Clemson is a nice team who will upset the big boys once in a while, but will normally win about 8 games per year and choke down the stretch.
As for VT, word is that they aren't going anywhere without Virginia. Those 2 programs come as a package deal.
