Building block to 2 X 24 and how does Pitt fit in

A lot of this I'm going to refer to the thread above. I have Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Clemson, Louisville, Ga Tech and Florida State going to the SEC. This group of 8 plus Miami & Pitt and the potential of Syracuse, Duke and Boston College should be enough for the majority of schools leaving to challenge and win the fight regarding the GOR. SEC would be getting first dips, so to speak, leaving the B1G to grab some schools they weren't initially invested in, during their search.

I think there's some edits to this that could/should be bad to the B10 lineup. The more I read about the ACC, PAC and B12, the more I find it difficult to believe that Kansas will ultimately find a spot, and schools like Colorado, Arizona St, Arizona and Utah are very liable to be left behind. Arizona schools confuse me in all of this because that's a quality market worth going into. I really felt that a school like Colorado was a shoe in as well. The more I dive into it, the harder I find it that Pitt will be left out when it's truly said and done. Ideally, I think that the B1G would want to stop at 20, because once it get's past 20, the appeal for schools really goes down.

B1G PAC: USC, UCLA, Oregon, Washington, Stanford, Cal

Ultimately, this seems like the most logical list of schools for the PAC division. For a 4 X 5 set up, I guess we could exclude Cal or Stanford. I do think there's a strong potential that neither Cal or Stanford wants to pay their players as state employees. That's going to be something interesting to pay attention to in the coming months/years.

B1G Plains: Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Northwestern, Illinois

I think this is rather self explanatory. I originally had Utah and Colorado in this division. It's just the more of the vibe and gist I'm getting, the more I think these two will be left out of the mix.

Great Lakes: Michigan, Michigan St, Ohio State, Indiana, Notre Dame, Purdue

Talking about murders row. Sheesh. More often than not, this division would likely have multiple wildcard contenders.

East: Pitt, PSU, Maryland, Rutgers, Miami, Duke/Syracuse/Boston College/West Virginia

It still wouldn't surprise me if schools like Northwestern, Stanford, Cal and Duke not make the leap due to play to play. It's going to be an interesting couple of months watching all of this play out.
