Then maybe the B1G and SEC are pressured to get to 16 and try to poach around the ACC’s GOR.

We end up with 4 16-18 team conferences and there’s a scramble for a 5th “best of the rest” conference.

Maximum realignment news cycle.

Not possible to “poach around a Grant of Rights”
Just let The SEC and Big Ten invite who they want from The Big 12.
The ACC and PAC can look at the leftovers.
I doubt either would find any value in the leftovers.

The ACC could invite WVU but I doubt they would have conference wide support.

Truth is, we just don't know that, because nobody has tested it.

I'm not a lawyer, but I do think that especially in the civil realm, courts are sometimes open to novel arguments that breach supposedly "iron clad" agreements and contracts.

I say 7 to 9 schools could decide to leave all at once by disbanding the conference. You have a bunch of duds with low ratings worst than the MACs. The ACC Network will fail and Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, UNC, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Syracuse could get spots in the Big 10 and SEC. Maybe a Duke program makes it 9 right there.
