Derrick Brooks Says Big 12 Has Approached Florida State

In a national radio interview on Tuesday morning, Derrick Brooks, a former Florida State linebacker and member of their Board of Trustees, said that the Big 12 has approached the Seminoles about possibly joining the conference:

Brooks, a former All-Pro LB with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, was a two-time All-American LB at Florida State in the early 1990's who helped lead the school to a national title in 1993. After his playing days were over, he was named to the Seminoles Board of Trustees in 2003.

The head of Florida State's Board ignited the latest round of realignnment speculation when he blasted the ACC's new TV contract and praised the Big 12's over the weekend, and Brooks' statements will only add fuel to the fire about what would be a blockbuster move for a conference that was seemingly on its deathbed only 12 months ago.
