    This assumes that TAMU is #13 (a very good assumption).

    They'll go 16 very shortly, so I have to think both will be there soon. But as for first, Mizzou if the Big Tex conference collapses completely in the coming weeks

    West Virginia is my guess. It's a perfect fit and it gives geographic options for getting to 16 since it connects to the Virginia and Maryland ACC states without having to go through North Carolina.

    I have a very hard time seeing VT going. 50% of their fans, at a maximum are in favor, and I can nearly assure you that their President, Charles Steger and AD Jim Weaver, are not in favor at this time

    WVU is the easiest team to "raid" from another conference. I don't think the ACC is planning on breaking up, but they will look to expand when the dust settles.

    I think they would like VTech, but end up settling for WVU

    I haven't been following much on what they're looking for, all I've heard is that they're after new footprints for states. I'll go with Mizzou, seems to be one of the larger TV markets in the list and we know they'd love to jump ship.

    I'd go with WVU, because they're going to want to go east so as not to mess up the divisions.

    I would bet that they would rather have UNC, UVa, or VaTech, but I would wager none of those teams will want to leave the ACC. UNC and UVa because of loyalty and old-time rivalries in the ACC (not to mention the idea of ACC expansion and a big payday when all is said and done), and VaTech because they finally got into the same league as UVa and aren't going to be willing to leave that so soon.

    Later on, the SEC will make a play for Mizzou, and for a curveball, perhaps they'll look at Pitt for #16.

    VT or TCU (I see primarily non-Big 12 choices on the SEC boards) but more than likely no one will be the 14th alone (14, 15 & 16 happen together down the road). This means for a short period Tamu is the 13th man as the SEC waits. No one wants to make/be perceived as making the tower fall. They just want first choice at the best pieces.

    Interesting.

    That leaves the OU/OSU/KU/Mizzou option open for the Pac-16 in the future.

    Although I'm sure those douches in Mizzou are figuring the Ivy League is about to give them an invite.

    I would love to see Texas follow the Aggies, just to piss them off.

    WV, Missouri, and VT are the most likely candidates, in that order.

    The SEC isn't necessarily interested in adding teams in states the conference is already in, which makes teams like FSU, Clemson, GT and Miami longshots.

    I'm hoping they take Texas, TCU and whatever after that.

    Missouri,oklahoma oklahoma state and Kansas go to the big 10

    Boise state,byu, san diego state and fresneck go to the pac12.?

    Or replace san diego st and fresneck with the two Oklahoma schools and add K-state and Iowa state to the big 10?

    :wow: :bang:

    Won't happen. BSU doesn't have the academics. SDSU may not have a football team. BYU is a religious school and doesn't play on Sundays. Fresneck adds no new TV market.

    -Because major political strings were pulled 7 short years ago to force UVA to get VT into the ACC, and Tech isn't going to turn around and slap UVA in the face like that after the storm they raised to demand entrance.
    -And most importantly, because VT views the ACC as their ideal conference. They have countless conference rivals within easy driving distance and the ACC's academics give VT prestige in that regard. I have good sources on this, and I can promise you that President Charles Steger and AD Jim Weaver are not in favor of making a move to the SEC. The only way VT moves is if the ACC crumbles around them and they're forced to seek a new home. VT will not be the first ACC school to jump
