Big 12 Best Case Scenario:

  • Big 12 North: Boise State, BYU, Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Memphis, West Virginia
  • Big 12 South: Baylor, Houston, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas Tech, UCF, USF

The new commish announces an alliance with the SEC, Mountain West, Sun Belt, and the AAC - who absorbs the CUSA. The Big 12 retains its Power 5 status and the AAC additions take full advantage of their new major status.

 

Big 12 Worst Case Scenario:

  • Baylor, and West Virginia joins the ACC. Baylor joins the Atlantic division along with SMU from the AAC, West Virginia and Notre Dame joins the Coastal. 
  • Kansas and ISU go to the Big 10.
  • Kansas State, Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas Tech join the Pac 12, which becomes the Pac 20 with the additions of Boise State, Colorado State, San Diego State and UNLV. 

The Big 12 dies. Texas and OU thrives in the SEC. The ex-Big 12 members in the ACC (Baylor and West Virginia), Big 10 (Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa State) and Pac 20 (Colorado, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas Tech) regularly schedule each other to try and recapture the Big 12 magic.

SEC "I am inevitable!" scenario

  • SEC East: Clemson, Duke, North Carolina, NC State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia
  • SEC North: Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin
  • SEC South: Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Mississippi State, Ole Miss
  • SEC West: Arkansas, LSU, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M, USC

The SEC breaks away from the NCAA and becomes a super collegiate league and a de facto minor league to the NFL. The NCAA keeps the ACC, Big 10, Pac 12 and Big 12 scraps, and those four conferences add a bevy of mid major programs such as UCF (ACC), BYU (Big 12), Cincinnati (Big Ten) and Boise State (Pac 12). The SEC schools can still schedule preseason games against NCAA schools (like Georgia-Georgia Tech, USC-UCLA or Texas-Texas Tech) to keep relationships alive. SEC games will be on the ESPN family of networks and SEC+, the new SEC and ESPN owned streaming service.

Mountain West stays in tact, won't lose Boise State, San Diego State, Air Force or Colorado State to American Athletic Conference (msn.com)

So if this is correct, it looks like the AAC will be going after some Conference USA teams to get back to 12. I like the idea of possibly adding Texas State as well but I can see why they wouldn't be considered.

Note 1: Expansion teams are in italics

Note 2: The Clippers are in italic due to an hypothetical relocation back to San Diego

You do realize the Clippers are preparing to build a new arena in Inglewood and therefore would not be relocating to San Diego, right?

LA Clippers. Same as the LA Rams and LA Chargers who also play in Inglewood. Or the LA Lakers who used to play in Inglewood.

The Lakers and the Clippers played in Inglewood in the past. Meanwhile, the Lakers will stay in the Staples?.

 

By the way, in the case of Cleveland Cavaliers spanish radio, i put "Tú 93.1" as the Cavaliers' hypothetically newest Spanish-language flagship station, because hypothetically iHeartRadio would acquire Urban One-owned and operated station 93.1 WZAK, and change its format to the Spanish TOP 40 "Tú" format, used in the Miami-Hollywood-Ft. Lauderdale area, and WLFM-LD will be sold to Gray Television and become a Telemundo affiliate in Cleveland.
