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?


My preference would be Pitt or UConn. Likely that the Big 10 decides it has gone as far east as it wants to go, sees no additional value in another PA school, and adds Kansas along with Mizzou in that scenario.

I think that's possible. I also think the P5 could still break away from the NCAA, or form their own division. Either way, it will include basketball, throwing the current NCAA BB structure into turmoil.

That also could mean the P5 expands a bit before any possible breakaway, at least 72, maybe 80.

I don't see Missouri joining the big 10 unless team 16 is lined up and it's from the pool of ku, ou, Arkansas, Kentucky or Texas. Of course, if the big 10 can pull those schools they will be expanding past 16. The simplest expansion to 16 with Missouri to the big 10 would be with ku or another sec school.

Missouri is very happy in the SEC. I don't see them leaving.

Would that be enough to get some expansion going by itself?

I mention it because I'm pretty sure the Big Ten models for sixteen or more members assume ten conference games -and- thirteen regular season games. This was said to be the only way everyone got their seven home games cleanly, if not giving some the luck of getting eight or more.

Or is it that expansion will necessitate that move to thirteen and not the other way around?


Big 10 was gunning for something like 22 to 24 teams a few years ago. They were looking at Florida State, Georgia Tech, Clemson, North Carolina, Virginia and Notre Dame and maybe a Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas on the west.

West:
Texas
Kansas
Oklahoma
Nebraska
Iowa
Minnesota
Wisconsin
Illinois
Northwestern
Indiana
Purdue
Notre Dame

East:
Michigan
Michigan State
Ohio State
Penn. State
Rutgers
Maryland
Virginia
North Carolina
Clemson
Georgia Tech
Florida State
Boston College/Syracuse/UConn. as the number 24.

You could break them up even more with 4 pods of 6.

Texas
Oklahoma
Kansas
Iowa
Nebraska
Minnesota

Wisconsin
Illinois
Indiana
Northwestern
Purdue
Notre Dame

Michigan
Michigan State
Ohio State
Penn. State
UConn./Boston College/Syracuse
Rutgers

Maryland
Virginia
North Carolina
Clemson
Georgia Tech
Florida State

PAC 12 makes a move...

They add Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Kansas and Kansas State to get to 16 total members. This allows them to broadcast games across three time zones, increasing the footprint of the conference, and adding a football blue blood in Oklahoma. This also allows OU/OSU to stay together, as does KU/KSU. OSU and KSU are strong football programs that would not bring down the competitiveness or the prestige of the Southwest Division, and Kansas, while awful in football, is a blue blood in basketball and give the conference another elite hoops member. The four new additions are added with Colorado as five original members of the Big 8.

Pacific Division
California
Oregon
Oregon State
Stanford
UCLA
USC
Washington
Washington State


Southwest Division
Arizona
Arizona State
Colorado
Kansas
Kansas State
Oklahoma
Oklahoma State
Utah

I like the move of the PAC 12 to take ou, ok state, ku and k state...keeps it clean politically, let's the PAC 12 move into the central time zone with 2 big brands and forces Texas hand. The PAC 12 would be OK at 16 but the end game would be 18-20 with Texas and friends.

One could argue this already happened.

Then chaos when the big 12 grant of rights expires.

Yep the Shockers would give their right nut to leave the Valley and if the American doesn't take them the A10 should, they have a better TV contract than the Valley and in time their better programs (Dayton & VCU) will be expansion targets for somebody
