If OU brings BOTH rivals to a new conference
Which chain reaction is more likely:

A) SEC

1) All 3 (OU, OSU, UT) to SEC
2) KU (and perhaps ISU and KSU) to B1G
3) Remaining BIG XII merge with AAC-W

B) PAC-XII

1) All 3 to PAC 12
2) PAC 12 adds a MWC team (or BYU), becoming PAC 16
3) WVU to ACC
4) ISU to B1G
5) Remaining BIG XII merge with MWC

RE: If OU brings BOTH rivals to a new conference
The B1G only adds Iowa State if they are adding an Oklahoma or Texas, IMO. I think a KU/ISU combo doesn't move the needle enough.

If Texas/Oklahoma/OK State leave, I would think the Big 12 (7) just back fills with Houston, UCF and USF. If they want 12, they can also grab Memphis and Cincinnati.

GW11: you essentially agree with scenario 1. :)

Maybe they'll vote Vanderbilt off the island. 03-wink

Either that or let the Big Ten have Missouri.

My guess would be they'd take a run at NC State or Virginia Tech. If those overtures were rebuffed, then I think they'd go to TCU, Kansas State or West Virginia.

If they kept the 18th expansion school in the East, they'd be able to have a better East/West set-up:

East:
Alabama
Auburn
Florida
Georgia
Kentucky
South Carolina
Tennessee
Vanderbilt
*NC State/Virginia Tech/West Virginia


West
Arkansas
LSU
Ole Miss
Mississippi State
Missouri
Oklahoma
Oklahoma State
Texas
Texas A&M

RE: If OU brings BOTH rivals to a new conference
I'm going to say that the SEC is more likely. It it would require a fundamental shift in how we thought in how we conceptualize conferences as well as a twist in the interpretation of how the rules that govern post-season play.

Let's say the SEC adds the Texlahoma 4 and 2 others. You then create 4 divisions of 5. Winners of those 4 divisions play in 2 "conference championship" games. Technically it's legal because to host a title you need 10 teams and divisions who play round robin among the division. If you can work it out to then let those two "conference" winners to meet in a pre-national Playoff game that'd be great but I still think you have a solid chance at landing winners of both those games in the playoff if you cant

I still don't think the PAC is realistic, if OU and friends decide to leave the XII, it will be to the SEC or B1G.

And please stop with the Iowa State to the B1G talk. The only way the B1G will expand is if a school brings value to the table, like an OU or KU. Iowa State brings nothing.

Badger: I unfortunately concede the SU's will be screwed by realignment. Their realistic landing spots don't serve the student-athletes very well IMHO.

Can we please stop to WVU to ACC also? They have been turned down 7 times by ACC, and will NEVER get in.
