    I don't think the Big Ten ever thought that Rutgers would bring in the NYC market. That's why they waited until the Fox Sports-YES deal was done before announcing the new additions. They will be able to strong arm the BTN onto a basic tier by using the YES network as leverage. There are a lot of Yankees fans in the NYC area.

    UNC has apparently rethought their options. Duke officials are aware of the situation and are livid. Duke contacted B12 this morning
    Nothing says Big 12 like Duke. LOL. These WVU guys are great entertainment.

    Duke home football games are like minor league baseball games around here. Tickets are dirt cheap. They frame it as a "family atmosphere". They have a friggin track around their field.

    You should have seen it when Alabama came to town a year or two ago. Tide fans showed up the Monday of game week in RVs and camped all week. The stadium was filled... with red.

    It wouldnt surprise me at all if Duke contacted the big 12.

    However, the only response they would have gotten was likely laughing, unless ESPN was also on conference call wanting to protect one of their favorite programs.

    I would bet every single Big East and ACC school has contacted the Big 12 outside of Maryland and Rutgers.

    Total speculation here. Don't think that any of this will happen, but what the heck.

    Let's say UVA and UNC are the Big Ten's next goals. If SEC wanted to go to 16, who would they get? Virginia Tech seems obvious, but beyond that, they apparently have a thing about not adding another school that in a state they are already in. Would West Virginia be on the line? If so the Big 12 is in an interesting situation.

    To even get to 14 you'd have to think that Florida State, Clemson, Georgia Tech, NC State, Duke, Louisville would all be options. But the Big 12 could certainly survive.

    If the Pac-12 wanted to join in the fun they would be much more limited in their options. BYU, Colorado State, Fresno State, San Diego State, Nevada, Boise State all are options to get to 16.

    A strange mix of the Big East/ACC leftovers would form for a fifth conference.

    Big 12 with sixteen teams in pods:

    Texas
    TCU
    Baylor
    Texas Tech

    Oklahoma
    Oklahoma State
    Kansas
    Kansas State

    Florida State
    Georgia Tech
    Clemson
    Duke / Miami?

    Iowa State
    West Virginia / Duke
    Louisville
    NC State

    Would certainly be interesting... Never gonna happen though

    SEC would be all over teams in NC to come with Virginia Tech IMHO. I wonder if UNC is in the middle of a bidding war between SEC and Big Ten?

    Round that map out:

    In a move to even divisions and further solidify basketball it looks like the ACC will add Uconn in all sports and St Johns and GT in bball

    MHver3 ‏@MHver3
    Not saying it is a done deal. Far from it at this point. We will know in a matter of days if not hours though. Like jury deliberations.
    I love when these random bloggers throw out timelines. I laugh every time.

    Perhaps Texas and Oklahoma will set up some sort of home and home deal if they join the league. Every year Duke goes to UT and OU in football, and UT and OU play at Duke in basketball. It's a win-win.
