Let's be serious folks, do we honestly think that expansion is over?
Do we honestly believe that everybody is happy? I mean sure, Texas and Oklahoma have their golden roads to the BCS title, but what about the conference as a whole?
Does the Big 12 really believe that 10 teams is the magic number, especially if everybody else is getting bigger and working toward a conference championship?
What does the Big East have to do to deal with its membership issues in basketball?
They know they can not stay viable with this crop of teams, and they really can't afford to add any more squads to an already bloated basketball league. Sure we'd all accept Notre Dame, but that isn't happening.
With Brian Kelly in charge, you know he won't allow the tradition of Notre Dame to be changed for money.
Can the Pac-10 make it to magic number 16? It would only take one team from the Big 12 to leave for the original five to ship out to greener pastures. Texas A&M was close, as some have reported, but I see Texas Tech as the team who rocks the boat.
Tommy Tuberville has already fired the first shot with his opinion of the future of his league.
How about the SEC? If one league gets to 14, or 16 can they just sit by and do nothing? Remember, your reputation is built upon the top teams you put out. Depth is not a concern when it comes to the mythical conference standings.
It comes down to BCS titles and bowl games won. Besides Texas and Oklahoma, are there any teams that the SEC has to have?
The biggest question is the future of the Non-AQ teams. Boise State, BYU, and TCU have lost a conference mate in Utah and will be looking for their opportunity to compete for a BCS title annually.
The other schools who are looking to leave their conference include Houston, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Southern Miss, Central Florida, and East Carolina.
All of these schools have the success in football, minus Memphis, and continue to look for their opportunity to move up the conference ladder.
Time will tell where are Non-AQ teams go, but expect them to move, whether they move to the greener pastures of BCS leagues or just move in together, this is certainly not the end of expansion talks.
