Maryland is in. Rutgers is coming, perhaps as soon as tomorrow. Who's next to join Jim Delany's pajama party? Here are my guesses:
Kansas: Academically a good fit and would bring some eyeballs in Kansas City, but has nothing to offer as a football program. This would seem to be a fallback option if other more desirable teams were unavailable. Really a basketball school and since football drives the bus, this seems less likely.
Texas: The holy grail and the ultimate darkhorse candidate. Texas offers everything -- a great football tradition and program, institutional strength and tons of eyeballs. What works against it: Nebraska left the Big XII to get away from Texas, and the Longhorns have their own television network, so they would likely want a king's ransom to join. But if the Big XII implodes, they would be the one team everyone would want. I expect the SEC to make a play for them as well if that happens.
Those are my thoughts. What are yours?
