Conference Realignment: Florida State AD Says Noles Committed To ACC

Amidst rumors of the Florida State Seminoles considering a jump to the Big 12 conference from the ACC, Florida State athletic director Randy Spetman has come out and said that's not the case.

"We're in the ACC. We're committed to the ACC," Spetman said in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel. "That's where our president and the board of trustees has committed to, so we're great partners in the ACC." Spetman flat out denied that Florida State is thinking about making the leap to the Big 12.

"I'm not out negotiating," Spetman said.

The reasoning behind the rumored move was a financial one, as Florida State could potentially make $7-8 million more per year, as well as launch their own television network with their Tier 3 media rights. According to FSU AD Randy Spetman however, there is no truth to the rumor and the Seminoles are not considering it.
