Basically what we jumped into with the Big East, they had some expiring deals which were better and a better overall group of teams. Not saying it would be a guaranteed top 4 conference, but it would surely be the 5th best and keep the P5 going for the short term at least. It can easily be a conference that is top to bottom better than the ACC. The only real blue blood in that conference is Florida St. If we are talking with OK State still in the Big 12, then I think it would be the 4th best conference. TCU, Ok St, UCF, USF finished top 25 with Iowa St being in it most of the year and Kansas St/West Virginia right outside. Houston expecting to be a top 25 team every year and either Cincy or Memphis could be another.
Kansas is in a different league in terms of basketball so they will always be valuable. Iowa St is a wild card and so is K-State, those might be two programs that struggle without an OU/UT or jump to the top of the conference in both sports like a Louisville (before scandals). I’m all for kicking Baylor out though.
