See, I don't buy this. With all the money at stake, there would be hell to pay for UF if it came out they blocked a fellow in-state public school like FSU. Ditto for South Carolina if they blocked Clemson. I don't see either school's administration risking their relationship with the legislature that way. The SEC might not absorb FSU and Clemson for any number of other reasons, but I don't think in-state opposition will be a factor.
Georgia Tech is private, so that's a different story. Ditto for Miami if the SEC were interested in them. (I don't think the current scandal would dampen SEC interest as much as others here do -- which is not the same as saying it will happen.)
Georgia Tech is a public school, not private
Thge problem with GT and Clemson is they add nothing to the conference.
