The correct answer ends up being "Atlantic Sun women's lacrosse splits into two conferences"

How did we all miss THAT?

The PAC 12 would be OK at 16 but the end game would be 18-20 with Texas and friends.

I really think with OU, OSU and either TT or TCU you the PAC would get North Texas. Just becasue there is a river between Oklahoma and Texas doesn't mean that those schools don't have huge alumni bases (Aside from TCU) in DFW.

I really think TCU might have an advantage over TT in that scenario. Playing in DFW is much better than Lubbock. It also makes travel very reasonable as teams can fly in for a TCU game and then jump on a bus to get more games in Norman or Stillwater. Stillwater offers direct flights back to Dallas.

Adding 6 teams keeps divisions intact and also gives some flexibility for keeping travel reasonable. There is no political mess as in that scenario the Big 12 schools could simply blame Texas for not being willing to expand or to have a conference network. Boren comes out and says he had no choice but to look out for the best interest of OU. Other 5 presidents do the same. PAC network gets picked up by all major carriers and suddenly becomes valuable.

Then ESPN can clean up the mess with UT, WVU and whoever else they want in the ACC. LHN becomes ACCN outside Texas.

The B1G has been the first actor in realignment shakeups for a long time now. An alternative to the Missouri move:

B1G takes Washington, Oregon, Cal, Stanford. Arizona, ASU, Utah, and Colorado to reach 24 functioning as two separate conferences:
B1G
East: UMD, RU, PSU, OSU, Mich, MSU
West: IU, Purdue, ILL, NW, UMN, Wisc
PAC
East: Iowa, Neb, CU, UU, AZ, ASU
West: UW, UO, Cal, Furd, USC, UCLA

I can't speak for Nebraska but Iowa would never go for that.

You need to throw in 4 schools from the Big 12.

The Big 28 Conference

east
RUT, MD, PSU, OhioSt, Mich, MichSt, Indy

North
Neb, Iowa, Minn, Wisc, NW, ILL, Pur

South
Tex, TT, Ok, Kan, Col, Utah, Ariz St

West
Wash, Ore, Cal, Stan, USC, UCLA, Ariz

That was step 2, and the Big Payout from step 1 is the lure :)

Step 3 (completion) adds UVA and UNC.
- Purdue+UVA+UNC to the Eastern 10.
- ASU, UU, CU to the Western 10
- UT, TTU, OU, KU, Neb, Iowa, ILL, NW, Wisc, UMN as the Central 10.

I like it. The Big 30.

Then the SEC and ND and remaining ACC minus Wake Forest can merge. The South- Atlantic 26

Bleccchhh!!! Now I know why I haven't been visiting realignment threads as much. I'm starting to feel like the members of the MWC back when they were in the WAC. There has to be a point of diminishing returns for even the P5 big boys.

Texas makes a deal with the ACC similar to the one Notre Dame has.

Kansas and Oklahoma go to the SEC (Auburn and Alabama move to the East division).

Big XII loses Power Conference status, adds Cincinnati, Houston and Memphis.

AAC adds Rice

CUSA adds 1 Sun Belt

Sun Belt adds 1 FCS

Idaho, UMass and New Mexico State go to FCS

I have a counter-proposal: the Big 12 and/or the SEC can keep/take Missouri and Kansas, and the Big Ten will throw in Nebraska. Don't need em, don't want em.

Indiana goes to the West in football (win-win-win), and the Big Ten adds UConn to the East.

how is trading Nebraska for Indiana a win? maybe for Purdue it is, but you just made the BigTen West worse overall.
