I don't think it would..Even if TCU didn't go to the BE, they would still have Rutgers, UConn, Cincy, and S. Fla. They could get back to 8 (where they've been the last few years) pretty easily with ECU, UCF, Houston, Navy, AFA, etc. They won't implode IMO.
They need to retain 5 current members to keep their AQ status. If they lose 4 or more members this year (or maybe it's 5 - not sure if TCU counts yet), they would be re-evaluated by the BCS.
I wonder how long it will be before we hear something official about expansion?
Sounded like the committee for negotiations is forming now.
Interim Commish starts Oct 3 (he said "maybe" Oct 10). I'm sure targets have been evaluated some but the Pitt/'Cuse move may have changed some ideas. We could see BYU picked up right away but any Big East teams will probably take more time to work out.
The only way to go...no TCU's allowed. They are one coach away from being irrelevant. Naynay seemed to rule out TCU initially on College Gameday this morning. Also very surprised to see most of the nation vote Boise State and TCU as the best potential Big 12 target teams. People were probably sabotaging that poll.
BYU essentially replaces A$M, and they move to the South Division in the future since they love Texas so much. L'ville and WVU to the North Division to replace Nebraska and Colorado, although I'd like to see Oklahoma move to the north with a protected rivalry in Texas.
