RE: How the Big XII and AAC would eventually merge
From what I heard.. UT gave Arkansas it's blessing to join the SEC. UT knew the SWC days were numbered, I'm not sure how UT was being a bully in the SWC.. I do think they got tired of the cheating that got way out of hand and left a black eye.. From SMU to the FedEx a&m scandal.

If UT ever left the Big XII, would A&M ever consider returning?

No, A&M had for some time considered the SEC as their dream conference.

RE: How the Big XII and AAC would eventually merge
Well if those teams left then Baylor, TCU, Iowa State and West Virginia would still hold the rights to the Big12 name and would collect all the buyouts. They wouldn’t be looking to join Conference AAC, but the other way around. They would go after teams of interest and within a footprint of a conference.

Maybe just maybe hit the tires on a old mate and see would Nebraska be interested. This would put them back within their stomping grounds and put them as one of if not the big fish of the pond so to say. You also have to remember how upset they were with the conference with the shut down, and let’s face it they are one of the odd teams in the BigTen.

Then they go after the best option right off with UCF giving them a Florida market in Orlando. Then they would go get Houston yet another big market, and Cincinnati who is no slouch along with Memphis. They fill the void of Oklahoma with Tulsa.

They could add some NOLA feel to the conference with Tulane, and bring in Louisiana as well

Baylor, Houston, TCU, Tulsa, Nebraska, Iowa State

West Virginia, Cincinnati, UCF, Memphis, Louisiana, Tulane

I know this looks ridiculous at first, but would work and bring in some money as well. Now some of these teams will be looked at IMO by the ACC if Virginia and VT would leave, and that would bet be West Virginia and Cincinnati possibly the conference would look at ace tral Florida, but doubt it goes anywhere. Then you could replace those two teams with say Western Kentucky and Liberty as a joke for this is t goi g to happen in a milli9n years.

UCF, Louisiana, Tulane, Memphis, WKU, Liberty

Well it is a forum of good and BAD ideas.

I agree A&M won't leave the SEC (too much $$$). And it's also true that the B12 would be swallowing the AAC, not the other way around.

.

The more different scenarios are presented involving changes in Big 12 membership, the less likely it may seem that any of the Big 12 teams will end up leaving the conference.

There would be no buyouts to collect.. A move won't happen til the GOR is up.. they can announce it a full year/year and a half in advance, but there is no buyout/penalty. I wonder if Texas did go elsewhere..would the new conference pull a BIG and tax them for joining like they did to MD and Rutgers?! lol JK

Texas isn’t going to play anywhere at a discount I assure you. There’s a big difference between teams such as Maryland and Rutgers when comparing them to TEXAS. it’s a full membership up front or nothing for them, and possibly any team that comes with them as well.
