    16 Team Superconferences

    In two years there will be three or four 16-team superconferences.

    Pac-10 will become Pac-16. I think it is easy to see how that will happen, and next week.

    Big 10 becomes 16 by adding BC (Boston TV market), Rutgers (NJ), MD (Baltimore/Washington), and either ND or Pitt.

    SEC forgets about not raiding the ACC / Big East and get their other teams needed to get to 16.

    And ISU's only hope for a BCS conference is either a) the remnants of the Big East / ACC / Big 12 raid C-USA & MWC to form the fourth superconference or b) the remnants of the Big 12 join MWC to form a superconference and hope it is enough to get BCS status.

    OK. That is my prediction.

    Bring it on. Let's hear what you think!

    I don't know where the Big 10 goes but if the Pac 10 goes to 16 then the BT and SEC will follow

    Re: 16 Team Superconferences

    We better hope for 5 megaconferences or us getting into the MWC, and that being one. Otherwise, we're SOL it seems.

    Exactly, that is my point. Once P10 goes there, everyone else has to follow.
