How's This for a Plan/Dream
ISU, KU, KSU, MU, and BU cherry pick one other remaining Big XII team to stay. TT or aTM most likely candidates. I assume it would take a majority to dissolve the conference. Hopefully a 6-6 tie keeps the conference.
Recruit TCU, BSU, Memphis, BYU, Houston, and Troy with promises of BCS.
In the new agreement, EQUAL FREAKING REVENUE SHARING and ALL MEDIA RIGHTS ARE FORFEITED TO THE CONFERENCE!
In the event you cannot get a sixth Big XII team to stay, you target Utah and beg the other departing Big XII teams not to screw the rest and just leave without dissolving. Maybe even wave the penalty.
Teams should not be leaving to join the MWC. The Big XII should be stealing from that conference. I don't like the smell of the Big East idea.
I'll throw one other pipe dream out there...how about calling Notre Dame and just seeing what it will take. I don't like the idea of making exceptions (what doomed the Big XII from the start) but desperate times call for desperate measures.
