The WAC adds Azusa Pacific.


A 20 team conference will never happen; much more realistic is the PAC going to 14 to match the other P5s by taking Texas and OU.


There is a 21 team conference for football in the NAIA.
Southern Conference used to have more than 20 teams at one time.

I believe the CFP expands to 8 and there will be no major changes in the current conference memberships.

The SoCon was relatively compact, football was young but the conference kept splitting. At some point the numbers make a conference unstable. I think that number is currently around 16. 16 makes it very easy to split in half and have reasonable size conferences.

RE: Predict the next conference reallignment...
If UConn isn't blowing smoke up people's ***es, and they may look at conference affiliation, I can see their football returning to the MAC so it can give that conference the chance to extend full membership to James Madison.

I still think CAA's going to crack once it loses another full member VA school, and the fight between public members with football intensifies with the private members without it. Regardless of what Patriot tries to do with football, and how it desperately wants William & Mary, the squabble over Stony Brook and the murmurs that CoC might actually want to return to SoCon (or it's just the latest CAA school who thinks it's in line for A10 greatness) signifies there's still some bitterness going on over there.

So, who knows. But, other than the Big XII eventually falling apart, I see some potential for further shifting in that AEast-CAA-A10 cluster, with Patriot and others lurking around. I don't think that just decided to go away.

In the year 2020, the Big12 will announce it is disolving and all 10 teams except Baylor have found landing spots in a P4 conference

Tex, TT, KSU, ISU --> PAC-16
Kan, Ok --> BigTen (16)
OkSt, TCU --> SEC
WV, ND --> ACC
Baylor --> MWC

1: The B1G invites Missouri. Missouri, not bound by an SEC GoR immediately accepts.

2: While WVU promotes itself as the obvious Mizzou replacement, "sources" indicate that the SEC is actively pursuing KU/OU/UT as 14/15/16.

3. State legislatures in KS, OK, and TX react with KS and OK legislators advocating keeping the BigXII together while the TX legislators promote a UT, TTU, Hou trio.

4: "Sources" indicate the Texas trio is close to becoming an SEC reality. Regents at OU and KU use the threat of being left in a Texas-less BigXII as cover to leave their little brothers. KU commits s to join the B1G as #16 and OU to join the SEC as #14.

5: The Texas trio adds Rice and "sources" indicate that the quartet will join the PAC. Sources then indicate Internal PAC conflict with Cal/Stanford opposing the additions on academic grounds and the SW4 opposing the creation of a new SWC.

6: Flight trackers identify a private craft traveling from Austin to the Bay Area and then returning with no announcement.

7: Few people notice the subsequent SF bound flight originating from suburban Chicago. When the B1G announces a press conference for the following day, people are taken by surprise.

8: The B1G announces the he acquisition of the PAC network with all revenues directed to the two remaining members- Oregon State and Washington State. The B1G then announces its new divisional ali

Key point in all of this. Mizzouri is not bound by a GOR in the SEC. They might consider this to be with rivals Illinois in the B1G. But who would be #16?

Jrj: you lost me after your 5th point. Those 1st 5 sound pretty reasonable.

I think conference alignment, at least among the P5, will be quiet the next few years. However I do agree with the posters above saying the AAC may grab Wichita. Outside of the P5 it wouldn't surprise me to see a few moves.
