    The Big 12/Big East merger getting a little muddy

    If the Big 12 goes down, it looks like Missouri might be gone to the SEC but West Virginia is left. Kansas may be gone to the ACC but one of Rutgers or UCONN may be available.
    West Virginia
    Rutgers or UCONN
    Louisville
    South Florida
    Cincinnati
    TCU
    ISU
    KSU
    Baylor

    Its looking less like a Big 12 flavor and a lot more of a Big East flavor.

    Also, with this group and a few others what kind of a football TV contract could this league realisticly bring(assuming they can't keep the Big 12 or afte it expires)? Maybe $5 Million per team? That doesn't look positive.

    Also, what happens to the basketball only members? Depaul, Marquette, Seton Hall, etc.

    Bigger question with that lineup is whether they'd retain an automatic BCS bid.
