    “ Plus, a clause in Notre Dame's deal with the ACC would require it to join that league if it decides to give up football independence. That deal runs through 2036.”
    In all of this I see lots of employment opportunities for lawyers.


    Edit: lawyer discussion moved to OT

    Big 12 - only 12 current teams. They will be going to 16 from 2023 until 2025 and then drop down to 14. This could maybe work though the flux in that conference seems somewhat unwieldy.
    SEC - Currently 14. Going to 16 when Ok and Tx join in 2025. Seems like a good candidate and the similar regionality would seem to create some fun matchups.
    Pac 12 - Currently 12 members. USC and UCLA leave in 2024. In its current makeup, this isn't a good fit.

    If the Challenge is going to continue, it has to be with the SEC.
    I believe the Big 12 currently has 10, not 12. It will go to 14 then fall back to 12.

    Yes, after OU and UT leave and the four newbies join, the Big XII will actually have 12 schools for the first time since 2010.

    But then 2010 was renamed, to 2008.

    I wouldn't mind seeing football uncoupled from the rest of the NCAA and conference affiliations.

    question is if we return to conference sanity for the other sports if this happens. I hope far more than believe.

    YES... like for all NCAA sports, which will not include football since they will be in their own "association"... maybe can go back to the "real" conferences of old... ACC with 8-9 members, BIG-10, BIG-8, Big East, SEC, PAC 10/PAC-8, etc. Then all sports except football will be back into their own regional/academic focus.

    Doubtful whether the schools not included at the football high table would be able to afford all the other sports.
    If the ACC loses its football schools and/or Duke's at a minor conference, we'd have to cut a lot of our other sports.
    As someone who is proud of Duke's excellence across the board, it seems Duke's best future is in the Big 10.
