Conference Realignment: Florida State Trustee Wants To Explore Big 12 Option

A day after Florida State Athletic Director Randy Spetman announced the Seminoles were committed to remain in the ACC for football, FSU Board of Trustee Chairman Andy Haggard expressed a sentiment completely to the contrary.

Haggard seems to have revealed the schools true feelings and sentiments toward the ACC while publicly announcing for the first time Florida State's actual interest in potentially jumping ship to the Big 12. Warchant.com has more:

"How do you not look into that option," asked Haggard. "On behalf of the Board of Trustees I can say that unanimously we would be in favor of seeing what the Big 12 might have to offer. We have to do what is in Florida State's best interest."

Dan Wetzel, via Twitter, announced that the Big 12 would have no problem with Florida State joining the conference.
