Pac-16, SEC-14, Big East-12, MWC-12

Bumped to the front page, because who doesn't like checking out what future conferences may look like.

With the rumors of Texas A&M to SEC, Oklahoma looks around at a depleted Big 12 & wants to call the shots instead of Texas so they lead Oklahoma State, Texas Tech & Texas to the new Pac-16.

Texas A&M & SEC quit flirting & make it official. Texas government insists Baylor is named Team 14. Auburn moves to East division to make room for them. They keep the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry & the Iron Bowl as annual games but Alabama-Tennessee won't be able to play every year. Vanderbilt & Baylor become a new inter-division rivalry of the 2 private schools.  Tennessee gets Texas A&M to replace Alabama on the schedule. Georgia gets Ole Miss since they got to keep their rivalry with Auburn.

The Big East offers a life preserve to the sinking Big 12 members Missouri, Kansas & Kansas State. They run a 20-team basketball league because it's profitable & get to renegotiate their tv contract next November before the inaugural conference championship game.

Only Iowa State remains but the Mountain West creates a championship game by adding the Cyclones & filling a hole in their footprint with Utah State.

Conference expansion ends with 4 Big 12 teams to Pac-16, 2 to SEC, 3 to Big East & 1 to Mountain West.  Notre Dame & BYU continue to play as Independents. The number of BCS conferences falls to 5 with the collapse of the Big 12. ACC, B1g Ten & C-USA sit this round of expansion out. No conferences poach each other's schools. The only real losers are Iowa State as they are bumped from a BCS conference & Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe as he's out of a job.
