That is the point I am making. Clemson isn’t like FSU in that they bring in money based on the state population. GT, UVa, and uNC fall into this category which is important to the B1G.That’s really not accurate at all. Clemson is a national brand that resonates with drawing significant TV #’s. Clemson was #10 at 2.59 M as far average watched per game for the 2022 season. The state of SC viewership is only a small piece to the puzzle. FSU was #15. Not really sure why some people on here (not saying you in particular) have this myth that Clemson, FSU bring nothing to the SEC table, but it’s simply not true.
Clemson and FSU have broad out of state appeal. So Clemson is a different animal with respect to expansion than the other ACC schools.
As for the SEC, Clemson absolutely hurts USC and uGa recruiting. So they would need to appeal to other schools based on $. Same with FSU.
