      Kansas State
      Baylor
      Iowa State
      Houston
      UTEP
      SMU

      Schad is drunk.

      That conference would still not be that good football wise. Infact, if they did get an auto-BCS bid, it would be absolutely absurd and further drive the nail of the coffin for the BCS.

        Quick heads up..... Via multiple Twitter sources Texas is planning to announce move to Pac 10 as early as Tuesday.

        I wouldn't take this as a for sure move but I would consider it a good possibility.

          The Big East has been a basketball conference since they made the move to 16 teams. Believe it or not football is second fiddle to basketball in the Big East.

            If Texas and Oklahoma join the Pac 10 and Nebraska has already joined the Big 10, then the Rose Bowl just made themselves a lot more money. Each one of those schools are football powers and travel very well.

              No, it isn't. They are good at basketball, so they are going to sell that, but in terms of adding schools to their conference, if they don't have a decent football program, they might as not even bother talking to them.

              What does another good basketball program do for the Big East? Not very much. They already have 16 teams and most any of them not named DePaul is competitive so they are looking at 6+ teams in the tournament every year anyway.

              Football drives the bus. That's just how it is.

                Some are saying this is a hint towards a move to the Big 10 as well.

                  I want Notre Dame in the Big Ten. Bad. Adding a program like that would be a great move for the Big Ten. I wanna see 16 teams and a title game, but I don't wanna see teams added just for the sake of adding teams. I wanna see some quality football and basketball programs added to the mix.

                  I like Nebraska. Notre Dame and Pitt would be great. My five teams would be those 3 and Kansas and Rutgers.

                        Pass on Syracuse and Pittsburgh.

                          Has he been fired yet? The guy is a moron. The TV contract was a nightmare, but he completely blew it in keeping the Big XII viable by passing on the +1 option when it was out there.

                              How does Pittsburgh help? It's already in Pennsylvania with Penn State. Is Pittsburgh really a big enough market to make a difference?

                                Pittsburgh is worthless in that conversation as it literally brings nothing. Pittsburgh is already a Big Ten TV market.

                                Syracuse is not gonna get the Big Ten Manhattan. It just isn't. Syracuse is in Western New York and the Syracuse football program is mediocre at best, so they offer little or nothing in TV.

                                Rutgers might, but that's really the only possibility for New York City. Missouri brings with it Kansas City and St. Louis. Maryland gives you D.C. and Baltimore.

                                If TV Markets are purely the goal, then Pittsburgh and Syracuse are already out of the conversation.
