No, of course not.
They're very forward thinking, and they were the ones who really started this conference alignment in the first place.
The Big XII is dead. That's obvious
If the Big East doesn't die, it won't live with its AQ status still intact.
Syracuse, Pitt to the ACC? Is UConn next? That gives the Atlantic Coast Conference 14, maybe 15 teams.
Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Texas Tech to the Pac-12? It will then be the Pac-16.
With Texas A&M, the SEC will have 13 teams.
The B1G will have 12 teams.

The separated divisions are only for easier viewing purposes, although I guess Big XII teams in the Pac-16 will be in one division to assure they play each other every year.
Other possibilities (in no particular order and with the bare minimum of qualifications):
Nevada (okay in both football and basketball)
There's really not much left, which is why I think the B1G should really push hard to get UConn. If AAU membership is important, then the following schools are possibilities: Kansas, Missouri, Tulane, Rutgers, Rice??? What does the B1G do? Do they just sit until they're basically made to switch to 16 teams, risking losing even these leftovers. In my opinion, I'd say that Rutgers, Notre Dame, Kansas and Missouri are the best bet. They're all known nationally. The expand the recruiting base (for what little they do), they're okay to very good academically. I think they each bring something unique. Except Missouri. not sure what they bring.
But anyway, just curious to what BHGPers think. Get the four best schools now (which ones?). Stand pat. If they have to take 16 in the future, they'll take what's left.
