As realignment becomes a regular conversation around college football, there are a myriad of options on the table for future moves now that Texas and Oklahoma have been extended invitations to join the SEC.

One of them comes from Florida State President John Thrasher, who is retiring.

“I don’t want Florida State to be left behind,” Thrasher told the Tallahassee Democrat. “I consider us as part of the ACC, but I also know that we have a marquee name, Clemson has a marquee name. I think there might be people coming after us, I don’t know, but we’ve got to be prepared no matter what the options are.”

Interestingly, the Democrat noted that a path out of the ACC would be difficult for any school, even the likes of FSU and Clemson. The conference currently has grant of rights with each ACC school through 2036. As has been the case with the Texas and Oklahoma move, negotiations over TV rights and exit fees are up for legal debates.

If any school left before then, its television rights revenue would remain with the conference for the length of the conference, the Democrat reported on the ACC.
