The Summit League would probably be the most malleable as it needs members who play baseball, and generally has schools with good academic profiles (Denver and the Dakota schools). I could see UT-Arlington coming in as #12 just to have a second member in the state of Texas.

Sure a lot of conferences would want Texas and OU teams, they would even welcome their football teams. You have lost it, if you think Texas and OU would stoop to placing their basketball, baseball and other sports in the Summit league.....good grief man.

1) What's your support profile look like?
2) What's your institutional profile look like?
3) What's your history of success look like?
4) Are you a real threat to thrive as a top 20 program as an outsider?
5) Do you have any powerful allies pushing for you to be included?

Baylor has an issue with item 1, 2, 4, and 5. And 3 is iffy.

---

Also, remember that in a world without 'must take' cable contracts, Birmingham is more valuable than NYC. And Memphis is more important than DC. My question is this...how does this program being in this or that association help my team make money? If I leave that team out, will they create a CREDIBLE competitor to my conference? Can I actually add/retain this team without upsetting my stakeholders?

In a 'big bug out' scenario, Baylor is probably on the outside looking in. I don't see BYU making the cut either. They're on the outside now for a reason.

My guess is that the next realignment will take the form of a conference raid or a defection by certain teams. And that the Big XII will lose OU and UT and that the ACC's premier programs will be tempted to jump. If anything happens. OU and UT could actually even - gasp - just try to go indy.

Its kind of odd, but I think Oklahoma State has more to worry about than Vandy does at this point.

As I said before Texas (and also OU) cannot go Indy, because of their non-football sports. Football could possibly survive as an indy, but what would they do with their non-football sports? They cannot survive as an indy.

I bet the AAC would be willing to strike a deal with them.

Sure they would, but if you think Texas or OU would do that you too have lost it. Remember Texas does not keep up with the Joneses ...they are the Joneses

They go independent in football, creating a pool of 4 P-level indies (with Notre Dame and BYU). The B12 replaces them with the two Florida schools, UCF and USF, who add football potential, new recruiting grounds, plus cannon fodder for the remaining B12 hoops programs (where the B12 doesn't need help to get bids).

The AAC now has 10 in football, 9 in hoops. By adding UT and OU they exchange two NCAAT caliber basketball teams for two bottom feeders. With 11 basketball members, they have a natural 20 game round robin to entice the networks. Throw in a 2 or 3 game football scheduling guarantee and the AAC now has great OOC scheduling options. In the AAC, UT and OU have five regional teams to help them maintain their local recruiting mojo.

Very few parts have to move for this to happen. And I'd bet UT and OU wouldn't have trouble putting together football schedules their fans and network partners would love.

LOL. That would be great for the ACC ....now try to sell that to Texas and OU, not to even mention Notre Dame. If I did not know better I would think you are trolling.

PS- Do you think OU and Texas want their soccer, volley ball, etc. teams traveling all over the East half of of the US. Get real.

I don't see how BYU makes it in.

Dodd seems to evaluate the Pac-12 entry criteria very differently than everyone else.

We'll take them, with a generous travel subsidy.

LOL!

Texas and Oklahoma are guaranteed spots in another Power 5 if they want to leave. Kansas has pretty good chances too. Texas Tech and Oklahoma St have modest chances of being able to tag along with their instate rivals. As for the rest--Kansas St, Iowa St, WVU, TCU, and Baylor don't have a whole lot to offer the Power 4.

While the scandals at Baylor have been bad for the Bears' public image it certainly hasn't changed the reality that already existed.

I agree. In the next round of musical chairs I expect Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas to have P4 seats. Kansas understands its football situation needs improvement to guarantee its future power conference status, hence its $100 million stadium investment. Depending on who issues the invitations and what politics are in play, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State may or may not get invited to join their in-state brethren in the new P4.

As for the rest of the Big 12 members, it's unrealistic to think they'll just dissolve the conference and head off to the AAC and MWC. Instead we'll see a repeat of what happened when the remnants of the Big East formed the AAC. The remaining Big 12 schools will rebuild the conference by cherry-picking BYU and the top G5 schools. I expect the AAC to take the hardest hit, with Cincinnati and Memphis being added to build a bridge to WVU and Houston being added to shore up the conference's Texas foundation. The MWC will lose either Colorado State or Air Force to give BYU a travel partner. The new Big 12 will become the acknowledged best-of-the-rest conference between the P4 and the G5.

Dodd on Baylor
BYU tried to join PAC with Utah, they were denied then and would be denied again. PAC plays a lot on Sunday, and secular schools do not want a church school.

Not that he thinks it will be only 64 in the new P4, but Baylor, Kansas, KSU, ISU will be possibly out while BYU and a few others will go up. Heard his interview on College Sports (XM).
Yeah have fun excluding flagships and land grant universities. I believe those staes still have senators and congressmen.
