WVU doesn't have a prick for an AD like UNO.

They never do until poof, someone gets a hair up their butt and "retires" the program. WVU moving to the SEC won't be good.

Iowa St going to the MAC or WWC would be great IMO.

I would love to see OU and Ok State to the Pac 10 (Pac 12/Pac 14).  It would really strengthen that conference.

It sounds like that is a done deal, along with UT and Tech.
Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

One of the biggest worries for the ACC is to hold on to Miami and FSU - to bolster thier football.  Adding SU and Pitt with the possible addition of Rutgers and maybe WVU as well to go to 16 would likely secure things and keep FSU and Miami from looking longingly at the SEC. 

Just my opinion - but if the Big 10 wants Rutgers or WVU they need to make a move - that is what will happen here - once schools start moving - its like musical chairs - when the music stops if you dont got a chair - you end upjust like  Iowa State - left out in the cold!

The Mountain West has only 8 teams.  Plenty of room for the likes of  KSU, KU, Baylor, Iowa State and TTech.  If no B10 offer for Rutgers the'll go ACC,
UConn will follow, FSU will jump to the SEC and let West Virginia into the ACC.  Louisville and Cincinnati head for the MAC

OU and Texas received regent approval to talk to the PAC 12.

How about a Big Something 12 team conference that includes:

East Division          
Connecticut
Rutgers
Louisville
Cincinnati
South Florida
West Virginia

West Division
Baylor
TCU
Texas Tech
Kansas
Kansas State
Iowa State

and a guaranteed conference championship  Note that TCU has been accepted to the Big East already, Baylor and Iowa State have expressed interest.

A big issue with this scenario I see is when you roll basketball into the equation since the BE has a ton of none football schools and Notre Dame.
Notre Dame
Georgetown
Marquette
Seton Hall
Providence
Depaul
St. Johns

The Big East would still be a terrible football conference in that scenario.  Getting rid of the two Big East schools that have any kind of past in football, and then adding the 5 traditionally worst Big 12 teams and a Mountain West team.

Actually it's West Virginia that has been dominant.  UConn, Louisville and Cincy have won conference titles and Louisville has an Orange Bowl in their trophy case.

BTW, you left out Villanova on the non-football side.

Texas got selfish (AGAIN!) and killed the OU\OSU\Texas\Tech to the Pac-12 deal.

Pitt and Syracuse are the only two schools who have won the MNC in the Big East.  UConn, Louisville, and Cincy were just mid majors a few years ago, and the Big East is the only BCS conference they could step into and compete.

The PAC 12 deal falling thru, had as much to do with teams not wanting to travel further inland.  And teams in the bottom half of PAC 12 don't want to add 4 team that will probably beat them year in and year out in football.

Most of the blame is on the T-sippers, who did not want to even talk about equal revenue sharing if they moved. They really just need to go independent, as they are too arrogant to be a good conference partner. Would still like to somehow see OU and OSU move out west, which would be a boost to their smaller non-revenue sports, competition-wise at least.

Man that sucks they aren't going to the Pac-12. However, I heard Mizzou is moving to the SEC now, so WTF. They are going to have a 3 team conference for wrestling now? What a joke.
