I dunno... I just felt like I'd beat Erictelevision to the inevitable, absurd conclusion.

Why do you consider it absurd? My hypotheticals seem pretty plausible.

Oklahoma might be able to skim off the top half of the Pac 12 if there’s enough discontentment, but that would be about it. Probably not enough schools willing to give up the bountiful confines of the other P5 conferences.

Oklahoma could do an ND deal with the AAC.

That would be a huge boost to the AAC's stock.

... David Boren would be the conference commissioner and the founder and CEO of the Oklahoma Sooners Television Network. And as the commissioner, Boren would present the conference championship trophy to the OU head coach at the end of every season. 07-coffee3

RE: If Oklahoma starts a whole new conference all by themselves...
There was a thread a while back asking if Notre Dame could build a conference. I don’t know whether the NCAA rules would allow it but perhaps it’d include:

Notre Dame, USC, Stanford, Texas, Oklahoma, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Miami, and Syracuse - 8 conference games allowing for 4 OOC games against rivals

PAC
West: Washington, Washington St, Oregon, Oregon St, California, UCLA, Arizona, Arizona St
East: Utah, Colorado, Iowa St, Kansas, Kansas St, Oklahoma St, Texas Tech, TCU

B1G
West: Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Northwestern
Central: Indiana, Purdue, Michigan, Michigan St, Ohio St, Penn St
East: Rutgers, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Duke, Georgia Tech

SEC
West: Texas A&M, Missouri, Arkansas, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi St
Central: Florida St, Alabama, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Virginia Tech
East: Auburn, Georgia, Florida, Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina St

That sounds interesting for football. But that coast to coast travel is brutal for most other sports.

If Oklahoma were to start a new conference all by themselves, they would be in a new conference all by themselves.

You should have started one over whether Kentucky Wesleyan would start a conference. That's DavidSt. style.
