What if Texas A&M would be Pac-12 bound instead of Utah? Would this rumble in the landscape of college sports be going on? Maybe with Texas and going independent, but would there be the dramatic effects going on?
If Utah was still in the Mountain West and Boise State coming in, that conference would have for sure received a BCS bowl bid, and kept BYU around, would TCU have bolted for the Big East or stayed
a lot closer to home.
The Cotton Bowl wants in the BCS and with the JerryDome it has a home that it most likely will get one sooner rather than later. So as I look at it, what would the college conference scene look like? How about this?
San Diego St
The Big Bowls would then look like this?
Rose – Pac12 vs Big Ten
Cotton – Big 8 vs AtLarge
Orange – ACC vs Big East
Sugar – SEC vs AtLarge
Fiesta – Mt West vs AtLarge
BCS Championship – 1 vs 2
So basically its 5 spots up for grabs along with the conference championships, the Mt West would have its bid. Texas is independent and A&M is separated from the Horns.
Would there be more stability? Most likely. All teams would be happy. The Big 8 may have not gotten a lot of money without Texas, but its college athletics and they could go for equality and get more than what they are getting now.
Thankfully NCAA 12 we can adjust conferences and see how it would play out.
