Well, that’s all they’ve been talking about on ESPN since 5:30. Nebraska to the Big 10. It seems like the Big 12 as we know it, is in its last days.
This is going to be huge for NCAA football, and here’s how I project things going down.
Nebraska, Missouri, and Notre Dame mozy on over to the Big 10. Bada-bing, bada-boom… Conference Championship Game and lucrative TV deal.
Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Baylor (entire Big 12 South) to PAC-10 to form a new division with Arizona and Arizona State.
Colorado and Boise State to the Mountain West Conference. Iowa State has no choice but to go to the Mid-American Conference or Conference USA.
The SEC takes Kansas and Kansas State, as well as take Miami, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Clemson.
The Big East brings Maryland in, and brings back Boston College and Virginia Tech. They also scrape up the 4 Carolina schools (Duke, North Carolina, NC State, Wake Forest) and Virginia. Either the Big East does this, or the ACC absorbs the Big East altogether. For simplicity’s sake (and my hatred of the ACC), let’s just refer to this scenario as “The New Big East.”
Coming up with all of these new conferences requires a racking of the brain… I’m not even kidding. Click HERE for a charted look at how I perceive the future of College Football. Blame the Big 10 for all of this!
