ACC would probably look at UCONN and Cincy (if they can’t get Notre Dame for football) in this scenario. West Virginia would be of no interest to them; no market and the academic profile doesn’t fit.
If the B1G can get OU, they may also look at UCONN; market already covered, but they fit academically. Not really sure where else the B1G could go unless they took a chance on a G5 like us in order to get a foot into Texas. They did it with Rutgers…but, we’d need to be farther down the AAU road for it to make sense.
He did say that PAC would try to pull as many Texas schools as possible. UT, Tech, TCU, and UH would be the most logical choices and probably what the legislature would push for. Our luck, though, they pick Rice over us . Baylor has no chance, not just because of the scandals, but the whole religious thing. That’s our opening.
Long way to go and as they constantly say, everything’s fluid.
