That sounds plausible except for Texas and Texas A&M, who you have to think the SEC will want to invite. Then you just replace them with the two Kansas schools. Nebraska and Missouri join the Big Ten. Baylor and Iowa State get hosed.

jopa did say he expected the pac 10 to expand first.  Maybe the news cameras should be in happy valley.  They would probably get more accurate info.

If this happens, the Mountain West should just pick up the 4 other B12 schools not named Nebraska and Mizzou, Nevada-Reno, and Fresno

Mountain west is sitting pretty for being a non-bcs conference.  Plus if they add boise state they will definitely get a bcs bid.

Yep, just assumed Boise was included in the MWC after hearing they were getting an invite next week.

I thought the big ten was going to invite all the big east aau members just to force ND's hand.  I guess if this is true that is exactly what the pac 10 is doing to get texas.

While I'd prefer to see the Big East stay as it is, this could pave the way for a playoff system with four 16-team mega-conferences.  Right now, you have 66 "BCS" teams counting ND.  Four 16-team leagues gets you to 64, so which two get left out?

If the Pac-10 expands to 16, going into Big XII country, this could be a good thing for us.  A break-up of the Big XII puts aforementioned Baylor and Iowa State in a bad position (the outside 2) and more likely that we end up in the ACC with at least UConn, UC, and UL.

Even if Baylor and Iowa State end up in the Mountain West, that's not the end of the world. They'd still have Utah, TCU, BYU, and Boise... could still be a BCS league. It's not nearly as bad as if, say, Cincinnati got left out and had to go back to C-USA. That would be a financial and competitive train wreck.

    We've talked about getting back to being the toughest, most violent people out there. Let's be the best version of ourselves and really get back to the culture of how we (USF) used to step across the line and play anybody. Let's hold on to the culture of when they were tough … and they (opponents) knew it was going to be long damn day for themselves.
