So now the Big 12 is way behind since they are sitting at 10 teams. With the change to the NC format moving away from BCS they need to add teams to get a conference championship. They added TCU and WVU to get to 10 teams. With Maryland getting out could this open the door again for Clemsux and FSU to move on? If so I could see the BIG 12 poaching 2 more ACC teams to get to 14 like most other major conferences are going to. So why not take VT and NCST also? That would put 5 teams on the east coast and make their TV market grow into better markets plus help keep travel cost down since you would now have 4 games in an eastern division. The ACC will be hurting if they add another basketball school. The direction this conference is heading is not good for the Hokies at all anymore. The only Big East team I would add IF I HAD TO would be Louisville. There needs to be a stronger push for Notre Dame to join in football. That would almost make out conference relevant in football again. The new format allows for 4 teams to make the playoff. That means there would be reps from BIG 12, BIG 10, PAC 12, and SEC. Notre Dame could sneak in because they play football as an independent and I have seen plenty of commentators say that their football program would lose value being 100% tied into the ACC.
Why not the Big 12?
