    Yeah interesting thought since the Big East/ACC haven't got much attention/haven't made a move yet. Being a UNC guy anybody from the Big East can join the ACC without me having a problem. For basketball it would be great and for football it wouldn't make that big of an impact.

      If I got to pick the 5 teams to get to 16 it would have been Nebraska, Missouri, Notre Dame, Pitt, and either Rutgers, Maryland, or Kansas.

      • Would the Big Ten take Maryland? If so the ACC then might replace them with Pitt. I mean as of now anything can happen.

        • I dont know it there is any interest at all, but I think it would be a pretty good fit. Adding Maryland could bring in some nice tv markets.

          I'd rather have Kansas and their basketball program, but apparently the Big Ten has no interest.

            But then again why not just all join the MWC? It would basically end up as the same confrence unless Baylor is excluded because of bad blood between TCU and Baylor?
            The Mountain West just doesn't want Iowa State and Baylor. Adding Mizzou, KSU, and Kansas really increases the prestige of the conference and would legitimize it, Baylor and ISU do not. I can easily see those two schools going to C-USA which would boost that conference up to 14 teams.

              Nope, Big Ten has never talked to Maryland either.

                You misread. Baylor and Iowa State would be part of a reformed Big XII.

                They have a big incentive. Until action is taken to change it, the Big XII is still a BCS league. TCU would grab a chance to join with both hands, which gives them a foot in the Dallas/Ft Worth TV market. They could pull in some teams from the MWC, or ones they have eyed, such as BYU, Utah and USAFA. I can see this happening very easily.

                I can just see the Baylor/BYU posters. John 3:16 vs Moronai 2:9

                • Maryland athletics would get dominated in basketball and football haha womens basketball would be nice.................................


                  anyway academically UMD works for the Big 10 but Notre Dame would be a much better option imo.

                    Why reform the Big XII with just five teams? If the Big XII can stay with the ten teams it has now then that makes more sense but I don't think that will happen, not with Texas wanting to move.

                          • my prediction :D

                            Pac 10 - Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, Texas, Texas Tech, UCLA, USC, Utah, Washington, Washington State

                            Big 10 - Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, Wisconsin

                            SEC - Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech

                            ACC - Boston College, Cincinnatti, Clemson, Duke, Eastern Carolina, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Florida, Syracuse, Virginia, UConn, Wake Forest, West Virginia

                            Each Conference shall have 2 divisions, the winner of the two divisions shall play. Then in a rotation the winners of the Pac/Big/SEC/ACC will play and for the National Championship Game, the winners of those games will face off

                            • Why would Notre Dame join the ACC/Big East in football when the money they're offering and academic standing they are offering are both lower and the Big East is stupid enough to let them have all of their sports save football in there already?

                              • Yeah that doesn't make any sense at all. If Notre Dame is going to join a conference for football it will be the Big Ten.

                                I also think that unless the Big Ten can get Notre Dame or Texas that they will hold at 12.
