Factors in Seminoles' Conference Affiliation

31
Warchant has published a detailed outline of President Barron's recent presentation to Florida State's Board of Trustees about conference affiliation. Barron's informative discussion surveyed the factors that are weighed in decisions about conference membership, including payouts, travel costs, alumni geography, academics, opportunities to compete for national titles, opportunities to recruit. He also took account of what is known and not known about the BCS playoff format and how that impacts conference affiliation. Barron says he received "over 100 emails" about conference affiliation that ranged from "join the Big 12 or be fired" to "I'm not travelling to Ames for a game". Interesting statistical insight: check out how the nation's athletic conferences stand in population of Florida State alumni. Very much worth a visit. http://floridastate.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1373740
