Conference Realignment Continuing


Nothing official has come out but we can see it coming from a mile away, Texas A&M will be heading to the SEC.  The SEC won't want to stop at just 13.  The easy assumption would be Oklahoma to partner up with the Aggies.  Two 7 team divisions would be awkward looking in the standings but would easily allow the SEC to move to a nine conference schedule, 6 divisional games and 3 crossover games.  Now let's assume the SEC wants to go to 16 rather than just 14.  That leaves 2 open spots to fill in the best football conference.  Who fills the final 2 spots?

 

I will leave the SEC guessing game to the link above.  The dominoes would start falling from there.  Say Clemson and Georgia Tech would be invited to the SEC.  The ACC would have to replace 2 teams.  The obvious turn would be taking West Virginia and Pittsburgh from the Big East.  Then the Big East would be -2 plus TCU= 7 in football, 15 in basketball.  How's that for a mathematical equation?  I looked into the possibilty of the Mountain West becoming a BCS AQ, this is the last year of their evaluation.  Sounds like the MWC is going to fall short of an AQ bid.  So I'm assuming some of the remaining Big 12 teams will turn to the Big East.  Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Oklahoma State and Iowa State (Big 8 UNITE) head to the Big East.  This allows a conference title game, ensuring the conference retains its AQ bid and not only sustains but upgrades an already awesome basketball conference.

 

This is all just played out in my mind and you could sit here and do the same.  We'll see the shakedown in the coming days, weeks, and months.  From the sounds of it, it won't be too long.  The Big 12 will become extinct thanks to the likes of those Longhorns of Texas.  Once again, this madness confirms Nebraska made the right decision bolting for the Big Ten.
