Those names suck. They would keep their old names.

I'd prefer if all conferences expanded to 12 teams, the Big East was stripped of their BCS conference status, and the Mountain West (already probalby the 2nd best conference) added Boise State and 2 other schools and became a BCS conference.

no, but the ncaa seems to be moving away from logical decisions, so I could see it happening.

Good call. Big East and MWC are the two best football conferences. If we're basing this all on bowl game results the last two years.

Fuck a SEC.

^^ Because they play a bunch of hard teams in the bowls Seriously dude you have to take in account who these teams were matching up against. Outside of the Utah/Boise State wins in the BCS games, most of the MWC opponents in bowl games are not very good due to the weak bowl alliances the conference has.

i just hope other conferences see what a bad decision expansion has been for the ACC and decide not to do it. it hasn't been a success in providing a better product on the field, and it hasn't brought in additional revenue off of it. blah, i could rant about this for days

Four 16-team BCS conferences (ACC, SEC, Pac16, Big1160)
16-team Conference USA East (Conference USA + Big East leftovers)
16-team Conference USA West (Mountain West + Big12 leftovers + new additions like Boise)

Conference USA membership would be dynamic promotion and relegation system, like soccer's Premier League.

Football playoff:
4 BCS conference champs
2 BCS at-large bids
2 Conference USA champs
Champs ranked 1 through 4, by BCS ranking
Rest ranked 5 though 8, by BCS ranking
Paired up 1vs8, 2vs7, etc.
Home field to higher rank
Semi's and Finals played at rotating BCS Bowl locations

Basketball 64 team tournament:
24 - 6 automatic bids for each BCS conference
24 - 1 automatic bids for each minor conference (actually only 23)
6 - 3 automatic bids for each Conference USA (East & West)
10 true "at-large" bids based on RPI

Automatic bid rankings determined by average of conf. regular season and conf. tournament finish.

The SEC will not expand unless it can land Texas. Texas is the only school that improves all sports, expands into a new, large tekevision market, and would increase revenue from media.

don't like this at all, four conferences remaining might be optimistic at this point, if the big 12 can get owned so easily then I worry about us against the SEC and I definitely don't want my conference dominated by all those rabid rednecks in the deep south, and the big east? no way they're fucked

The ACC's new TV deal might help.

It's not as big as the SEC's, but it's big enough to give some leverage probably to schools who wouldn't leave unless money was an issue.

i hope the acc is unchanged by all of this. when we expanded to 12 teams our level of competition went down in basketball for a few years (i know it was for football that we did it... but i dont want more of that shit)

I cant decide if I like this or not, its hard to fathom there not being a Big XII conference anymore. This feels like some shit I would do in a video game to make for some crazy games, etc. The Pac10 is especially nuts if they wind up getting Texas, Oklahoma, OkState, Texas Tech, etc. etc.

Big 12 is dead.

All of them to the Pac 10. Baylor, Kansas, Kansas St, Iowa St, are all left to join mid major conferences.

The big 12 is gone.

Where they going to go?

Mountain West will absorb some of them.

ACC needs to take what the Big 10 doesnt from the Big east

Adding UConn, Syracuse, Pitt & one of WVa, Louisville, Rutgers would add value in terms of new markets and would make the ACC the hands down top basketball conference...
