TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State University President Eric Barron says he's heard the rumors that the Seminoles are moving to the Southeastern Conference and says that's all they are at the moment -- rumors.

But he also didn't say it would never happen. Barron said Friday that while he finds such speculation fascinating, he has not had any talks about Florida State bolting the Atlantic Coast Conference for the SEC.

He says that the ACC "is a good conference." The Florida State president also says he will not speculate if FSU could move when there is no discussion about it.

Florida State has largely dominated the ACC in football since joining the conference two decades ago, winning a dozen league titles and two national championships.

    are you kidding? As Bobby Bowden said years ago, "I don't want None of the SEC", and went to the ACC.
