Ok, so I've spent entirely too long researching where the teams would most likely go. I've rewound time a short while, but I'll explain my reasoning in each conference.
Pac-16: adds Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St., Texas Tech, Colorado
West: Washington, Washington St., Oregon, Oregon St., Stanford, California, USC, UCLA
East: Arizona, Arizona St., Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St., Texas Tech, Colorado
I started it off under the assumption that Texas and the other 5 accepted the Pac-10's proposal to become the first "super conference". Pretty Straight forward, however if you really don't want to see new member Utah out of the Pac-12/16, then simply replace Texas Tech with Utah.
Big 10: adds Nebraska, Notre Dame, Missouri, Kansas, Rutgers
Leaders: Nebraska, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan St, Notre Dame
Legends: Wisconsin, Northwestern, Illinois, Penn State, Ohio State, Purdue, Indiana, Rutgers
Permanent Opponents: Nebraska-Penn St, Minnesota-Wisconsin, Missouri-Illinois, Iowa-Purdue, Michigan-Ohio St, Michigan St-Indiana, Notre Dame-Northwestern, Kansas-Rutgers
Ok, so after the Pac-16 makes it's move the Big-10 quickly moves to counter. They take Nebraska from the Big-XII, but also take Missouri (who has always wanted a Big-10 invite) who provides the St. Louis and KC City markets as well as their chief Rival Kansas, which provides a big Bball boost (I'm sure politics would have something to do with Missouri-Kansas moving as one). Sorry K-State, they get left out, but ultimately they don't provide much more than Kansas by themselves. Lastly, they get Rutgers from the Big East to bolster the NYC market, also I read that Rutgers would be the one most likely to move from the Big East due to the other school's having time constraints.
I split the divisions up and kept many permanent games to ensure most rivalries are being played. Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa (all "western" style schools here play each other) while Missouri also plays Illinois. Illinois plays NW and Missouri. Michigan-Ohio State, duh. I put Notre Dame in the "west" styled division because they play their 2 biggest rivals from the big-10 (michigan, mich st.) every year, and their permanent rival is NW, who they actually had a rivalry with in the 70's (played for a shellalagh). Minn-Wisc, Mich St.-Ind, Iowa-Purdue , Nebraska-Penn st are all current permanent rivals. The only one that doesn't make sense is Kansas-Rutgers, but it's the only way I could do it while preserving every rivalry. If you want to change up the divisions or what-not, go ahead (if you come up with a better way that keeps all the rivalries let me know).
SEC: adds Florida State, Miami, Georgia Tech, Clemson
East: Florida, Florida St, Miami, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson, South Carolina, Vanderbilt
West: LSU, Arkansas, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Miss. St.
I tried to keep this as real as possible and scouring the internet I found that Silve said his first 2 preferences (if A&M were gone) would be Clemson and Florida St. followed by Miami and Georgia Tech. Let's assume he got them all (since after those 4 there were only rumors). I split it up East/West. Tennessee leaves the East but many of their longstanding rivalries were with the West anyway (Alabama, Auburn, LSU) and they still get Kentucky. The only one that doesn't make sense geographically is Vanderbilt but I put them in the East because the East needed at least one "weak" opponent where as the West already had Miss. St. and Kentucky. I think it balances them out. Florida loses its annual game against LSU but they gain FSU as a conference game, so I think it evens out.
ACC: loses: Florida St, Miami, Georgia Tech, Clemson
adds: Pittsburgh, West Virginia, UConn, Syracuse, USF, UCF, Louisville, Cincinnati
North: Syracuse, Boston College, UConn, Maryland, West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Cincinnati
South: Virginia, Virginia Tech, Duke, UNC, NC St, Wake Forest, USF, UCF
Ok, after the ACC gets pilfered the logical step would be to combine with the Big East. I had trouble with the last 2 spots (Louisville and Cincinnati); if you think TCU and perhaps Houston would've been admitted before them go ahead but I chose them as the last 2. Really, any 2 schools you wish to add there would be fine. Basically it creates the most powerful Bball conference possibly ever (Duke, NC, Syracuse, UConn, Pitt, Louisville ). The football is a little weak however. I chose Virginia and VTech for the south as opposed to Louisville & Cincy just to split up WV and VTech (the 2 biggest football powers left) and so Virginia can maintain their long-standing rivalry game with UNC (longest rivalry game in ACC).
West: Fresno St., San Diego St., Boise St., Nevada, UNLV, Utah, BYU, Hawaii
East: Kansas St., Iowa St., Baylor, TCU, Houston, New Mexico, Colorado St., Wyoming
This is essentially the rest, although pretty much every MWC team is in there. K-State, Iowa St, and Baylor all find a home in MWC. I wanted to split up the "big 4" into 2 in each side (Utah, BYU, Boise, TCU) but couldn't see how. This way Utah and BYU still get their rivalry and Boise-Nevada still get theres. Also, it gives incentive to the 3 former BCS schools to have an "easier" side to win. I took Air Force out just because I like the idea of all 3 service academies being independent but if you want them in (since they are MWC after all) just substitute out Houston and insert Air Force. Similarly, if you put Utah in the Pac-16 instead of Texas Tech, just swap them and put TTech in the East and move New Mexico to the West.
Keep the MAC the same, and for the rest since you should have 5 conferences you need to fit the remaining teams into, just put them wherever you wish (they don't really matter at this point, just to make sure each conference has the minimum #).
BCS: Since I can't really do a 4/8 team playoff, here's How I'd do the BCS: Each of the "big 4" get 2 BCS slots, however 2 of them will play for the NC so one of those remaining spots will go to the MWC and the other to an At-Large.
Rose Bowl: Pac-16 vs. Big 10
Fiesta Bowl: Pac-16 vs. ACC
Sugar Bowl: SEC vs. Big 10
Orange Bowl: SEC vs. ACC
Pac-16 wouldn't get to play SEC and ACC can't play Big 10 but it's about as even as I can get.
The MWC takes whichever slot goes to the NC and an At-Large takes the other. This provides incentive to the MWC since they're a "BCS" school but since they are (considered) a lesser conference they get 1 bid instead of 2.
Pretty much everyone's happy, the only 2 major things I can think is Kansas might not play Kansas State every year and ditto for Notre Dame-USC. Which would suck, but it is what it is...
Let me know what you think!!
Is this the most reasonable Super Conference scenario you've seen or are some parts outrageous?
