    4 sixteen team conferences, where do we fit?

    SOrry if this is too long but...I quickly tried to go through and align all the possible new conferences and their new 16 teams. I threw 16 teams into the Big Ten, Pac 10, and SEC, according to the rumors we are hearing. By my math, the ACC will have 7 teams left after several teams leave for the SEC and the Big Ten.. They are

    Duke, FSU or BC, UNC, NC ST, Vir, VTech, Wake.

    There are 11 remaining teams that were in the BCS before the shake up, with needing 9 to fill out the 4th and final BCS conference. They are...

    ISU
    Baylor
    Cincy
    UCONN
    Louisville
    Pitt
    S. Flor
    West Virginia
    Kansas
    K-St
    Mizzou

    So is there a chance we get into the 4th "BCS" conference. There is a chance they add some none BCS teams, but not many would be worth it. I dont see Baylor getting into the final 9 teams, so is there only 1 other team we have to beat out? I know this is a stretch, but I just wanted to see how many other teams might be in our same position. I hate to start yet another thread, but why not.

    Re: 4 sixteen team conferences, where do we fit?

    If the Big 10 is filled with Nebraska, Rutgers, Syracuse, Maryland, and Notre Dame, the PAC 10 being full, and after the SEC raid of the ACC. The only remaining 16 team option will be the ACC. After the SEC raid, they'll have 8 teams with 8 to fill.

    Enter UConn, Pitt, Cincinnati, USF, West Virginia, & Louisville from the Big East and the ACC is at 14. I just can't see ISU, KU, MU, KSU, or Baylor (maybe?) fitting into an Atlantic Coast Conference so say they pick up Memphis and East Carolina/Temple to get to 16.

    If it goes to 4 BCS conferences, then ISU is out of luck. I don't think the Big East members would be wise to conglomerate with the remaining Big 12 members because they have the ACC to be absorbed into. We need to keep the 5 former B12 together and think west. Everything east of the Mississippi should be claimed. With five BCS teams, maybe they can get the MWC to join a revamped B12 to save some face and credibility.

    Its funny/sad that the B12 has the Big 16 trademarked, but seem to have blindsided by everything. Does this new league need 16 teams as well? To be a BCS conference, probably. So we'd need 11 more teams. Take the best combination of MWC, Conference USA, and Boise State....and we'll see.

    Disclaimer: The above is most likely ********

    Again they can blame McD four years of non excellence. Nobody considers us an athletic school.

    I think it will end up your MWC, Big12 leftovers, Boise State, and somebody like Houston out of conference USA scenario. The conference would have some schools in some major markets and the geography isn't horrible.
