A lot of mid level school presidents and ADs have to be looking at Central Florida and wondering, "damn, how'd they do that?" Not many mid major type schools ever make the jump, and for the Big 12 to get a very deserving one like UCF (in a market like Florida no less!) is a great matchup.

For a conference that lost a lot on the surface, they rebounded perfectly and can now sit back and watch.

Um, the Big 12 lost *Texas* and *Oklahoma*, the only valuable schools in the conference, and added UCF, Cincy, BYU and Houston?

IMO, they are far and away the biggest losers of this realignment. So I imagine they are enjoying all this by far the least.

And even more so if you look at this and previous rounds of realignment- Texas, OU, Mizzou, TAMU, Nebraska, Colorado.

Ain't that the truth. That bunch is mere shadow of it's former self.

If reports are close to accurate, The B12 will still end up with approx 20mil per year.
Which still keeps them the #5 conf money wise, by a big stretch. They now simply need to rebuild that image. I agree that short term the B 12 is a big loser as is the AAC.

If the AAC grabs the right schools, and CUSA/Belt schools will jump, and can keep their TV $ north of 4 mil they will long term do just fine as well. At the end of the day only the SEC was a winner here.

Great point Oscar, nobody else even comes close to the XII if you look at realignment from 2010 on. They will have lost 6 by the time UT & OU make their move, IIRC nobody else in the current P5 has lost anybody aside from Maryland's escape from the ACC.
