EDIT: This thread has been changed from Hypothetical to Rumor Central given the events of the last 24 hours.
As of Now. Texas and Texas A&M are in discussions of whether to stay or leave. A&M has been talking to the SEC, the PAC 10 are rumored to have made offers to Texas, A&M, Texas Tech, OSU and Oklahoma to join Colorado in the PAC 16. Florida State, WVU and GT may or may not have offers from the SEC.
Things are getting Crazy. Below is the original post about ESPN's hypothetical power conferences.
Friday on College Football Live, the analysts threw out a hypothetical scenario based off the rumors of the Big 10 expanding to 16 teams. This is what they came up with.
Mega Conference Big 10
The Originals: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin
Adding: Notre Dame, Missouri, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Nebraska
Mega Conference SEC
The Originals: Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Mississippi, Mississippi State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
Adding: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas AM
Mega Conference Pac-10
The Originals: Arizona, Arizona St, California, Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington State
Adding: Colorado, Utah, BYU, TCU, Kansas, Kansas State
Mega Conference ACC
The Originals: Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Miami, NC State, North Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest
Adding: Connecticut, Rutgers, West Virginia, South Florida
Clearly in this Hypothetical the Big Winner would be either the SEC (adding Texas and OU) or The Big Ten netting the biggest fish (ND). The Obvious loser of the four is the ACC.
Also, teams not picked up by the power conferences in this hypothetical: Cincinnati, Baylor, Boise State, Texas Tech, Louisville, Iowa State, Fresno State, Houston, Memphis, San Diego State and Wyoming.
