It seems to me the Big12 have done their homework with FSU and CU and they know what the answer will be.
They have rattled their sabers about expansion to try and get the ACC to go along with a top four playoff model. The ACC desperately wants a conference champ model.
If a conference champ model is chosen they take the two schools. Triggering a collapse of the ACC and the big four consolidates power, making the other conferences irrelevant.
If a top four model is chosen they stay at ten and make big $ on the bowl with the SEC. They become a very rich conference with goliaths at the top. This also weakens the ACC and in the long run results in irrelevancy.
This was over when the SEC and Big 12 partnered on the bowl.
Now the Big 12 waits to see if the end game plays out in the next couple of years, or over the next decade.
The only hope I see for the ACC lies in the comforting arms of touchdown Jesus. ND can save the ACC from financial obscurity. The other ray of hope? A hail Mary, long bomb in the form of an 8 team playoff.
All this looks good on paper, but like any good poker game, I am sure someone has something up their sleeve.
