SEC, ACC, B1G and PAC...that's why the others have been losing teams.
I am still not sure they stop at 16 though. The divisions will be like the old conferences and I could see the divisions going to 9 or even 10 to be inclusive enough to keep the politicians at bay. Also, before you get mad at the politicians remember how we got into the ACC. We couldn't have done it without them...that's just the reality of how we went before the Cuse.
it sounds nice and clean for message board discussion, but these leagues and institutions are too political and self-protective to ever invite members for the greater good in the form of a well organized FBS.

Amen. No school should get a stipend like ND does especially when they have, what, 1 BCS birth in 20 years. ND's only meaningful contribution came when Holtz was in town and they cheated like mad. Otherwise, they have had no more success than Northwestern/WF over the last 35 years IIRC.
Yup. Having a bunch of midweek games sucks.
