08:27 AM ET 08.30 | Is Bill Self losing any sleep over Texas A&M's likely departure from the Big 12? "No," Self said Monday at his Boy Scouts of America benefit golf tournament at Lawrence Country Club, when asked if he was worried about A&M possibly bolting the Big 12 for the SEC, just hours before the first reports that the Aggies had, in fact, decided to leave the league. "I don't mean to sound negative or whatever, but I don't think that's a dealbreaker at all," he added, referring to the future nine-team Big 12 possibly breaking up. Last year, Nebraska and Colorado leaving put the whole league in flux because everybody else was looking. From what I gather, other schools are solid. Hey, nine is not a bad number," Self added.

9 works well. No one can be confused if you call yourself the Big 9. Or drop Baylor and poke NEB with a Big 8 moniker...

It is beginning to look like there may be different conferences for football and the other sports.

Will there only be 64 D-1 CFB teams and 200 D-1 CBB teams?

Still think 80 works better for the D-1 teams. 4 20 team conferences. Or at least 4 18 team ones for 72 teams.
