I think we'll manage to survive.
One thing I wonder if they would discuss is letting UC, UConn, USF stick around for all other sports while they find permanent homes. This is why I thought you might see someone try and get creative for a football only "best of" conference who that was the ONLY sport that league would sponsor.
Big 12 takes NC State/Clemson, Va Tech, FSU and Miami to get to 14.
SEC takes UNC and Duke to get to 16.
B1G takes Ga Tech and Virginia to get to 16.
Would the remaints be able to cobble something together FOOTBALL ONLY to try and maximize what tv dollars they can get while all the other sports cut cost by staying more local based?
