While all this conference realignment is going on.....wht not have the SEC invite North Carolina to the SEC.

Missouri is not the 14th team the SEC needs......they bring just football

Why not throw a wrench into the system and invite UNC to the SEC EAST. It would be sweet to see UNC vs Kentucky in basketball. UNC has a decent football team and is also in a good location to be apart of the SEC.

academics are good! Baseball is good. Ladies basketball is good. Make it happen. Shock the world!

BEST random team to join the SEC?

I feel Missouri is the "easy" girl at high school who is just throwing herself at any conference who will take her home tonight! Missouri has no standards and just thought it was cool to get out of the BIG-12 and now that the BIG-12 looks to be stabilized, it feels it can not go back! Oh well! Live and Learn!

I hope Louisville, BYU, and Boise State get the invite!

I would have agreed if Butch was still coaching!

Imagine if the SEC says...we are going to 16 teams...gets DUKE and NORTH CAROLINA...plus CLEMSON and TEXAS A&M......that would be a bad apple....gives more to basketball and academics!

the BIG EAST does not care about this but it is more quality than quanitity when it comes to expansions....the SEC is not going to pass up TEXAS AM....good name to add other than TEXAS if your taking teams from that state.

the BIG EAST is the other way around...heck they would take a football team from AFRICA if it meant keeping their BCS bowl bid!

November 2, 2011  05:51 PM ET

the BIG EAST needs to raid the C-USA and the SUNBELT.....tell the non football schools to get it going.

go after Temple, UCF, East Carolina, Marshall, FAU, FIU to name a few

if you still feel like going west...work your way to TROY, UAB, Southern Miss

Teams would be smart to avoide the BIG EAST mess in football

MWC needs to get a title game...that would help bolster their conference....once they get the teams from the WAC they need to make a coastal and mountain division and have a title game either in VEGAS (that would be awesome) or they host it at the home team with the best record (BOISE STATE)

November 2, 2011  05:52 PM ET

you all should also check out my profile and blog...read it...love it...comment...and pass it around!

Its Official....we have NO IDEA who will end up in what conference by the end of the year but we do know the BIG EAST is a joke!

Already done-the MWC champ will play a CC game with the C-USA champ. What teams go where kinda depends on if anyone leaves for the BE.

$20 million exit fee?

Yah, its hard to see UNC pulling that off (and even harder to see BSU pony up the 21 million exit fee for the MWC).

November 3, 2011  11:51 PM ET

UNC will get that money from the SEC...money flows like a river in the SEC...they would get it done!

November 3, 2011  11:52 PM ET

I meant that the MWC has to have its own Conf Championship game...get the lead back to 12 teams...and not worry about the soon to be gutted C-USA!

I don't think they will.

That would be great but i do not see big game Bob wanting that he already has a hard enough time in the B12 even though he is from the SEC

Please explain any SEC connection to Bob Stoops. He's from Youngstown, Ohio.
