Conference Realignment: Seminoles Head Coach Jimbo Fisher Interested In Big 12, Too?

After Florida State Board of Trustee Chairman Andy Haggart publicly acknowledged interest in possibly having the Seminoles leave the ACC to join the Big 12 for football, Head Coach Jimbo Fisher pretty much co-signed on Haggart's sentiment today before speaking at the Seminole Club of Greater Orlando.

The Orlando Sentinel has more:

"There have been no official talks, but I think you always have to look out there to see what's best for Florida State," Fisher said. "If that [jumping to the Big 12] is what's best for Florida State, then that's what we need to do."

Haggart essentially accused the powers-that-be in Atlantic Coast Conference of caring more about the North Carolina schools which are more competitive in basketball, over the schools in the rest of the conference which are very competitive in football with the primary issue being the conference surrendering all third tier television rights for for football to ESPN/ABC, but not basketball.
