Personally, I'm fine with the SEC taking West Virginia. There are certain metrics they don't meet, but that can be remedied in time and they're already working on some of them.

Actually, in the world of streaming, it might be nice to have more fans in that region of the country as their fans are spread throughout the Mid-Atlantic. Not like we're getting into NC or VA anytime soon anyway. That and WVU could play some neutral site games in DC or something and attract additional attention in that region of the country.

If I was the ACC though, I would hold a hard line on Notre Dame. There is ultimately no good reason they can't join your league unless you just decide to let them have special treatment. There's nowhere else for them to go once the Big 12 is done.

It's tough to "hold a hard line on Notre Dame" since agreements are in place to allow them to enjoy semi-independence for another 20 years.
It would have to be Notre Dame asking to join full time as we have no way to force them for quite a while.

I think the hard line would be that you don't give them anything other than what they are contractually obligated to receive.

No access to the championship...no scheduling favors...and certainly no contract extensions until they agree to enter the league fully

Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, South Florida

West: Texas, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri
Central: Texas A&M, LSU, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Mississippi State
South: Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky
East: Florida, South Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, West Virginia

Play 4 division games, 3 permanent rivals from each of the other 3, rotate 1 each from the other 3 every year = 10 games and you play everyone at least once every 4 years.

That's not too bad at all really. I also think we would be wise to add another Florida school, especially one in the Southern half.

I'm starting to take a liking to that version of 20. I don't really mind the idea of Kansas or Iowa State, but I would prefer not to reach much further into the Midwest unless it was necessary. The travel would be brutal and the meshing of the schools would probably not be so smooth.

KU will never be a football power although they would be a good option if we didn't have to take Texas Tech for example. WVU fits in the SEC pretty well overall and I think a school like USF could really pay dividends down the line.
