Suddenly, the Big 12 is in a position to add Miami, Clemson, Florida State, Duke/VT, and one other (Louisville/Cincy/Pitt/Syracuse...) to get to 16 and establish itself as the final super conference. However, that 13 year GOR could loom problematic.

Do you think the conference would restructure the GOR in order to add those schools? It doesn't seem like those schools would have a ton of leverage, but FSU, Clemson, Duke, and ND could maybe do something completely unforseen like working with the PAC 12 to become an eastern pod.

The conference could put Oregon, Oregon State, Washington, and Washington State into one pod, the for California schools in one pod, ASU, Arizona, Colorado, and Utah into one, and the eastern schools into the fourth.
If the ACC were to basically be picked apart to the point where there are no viable football programs (as you seem to be speculating here) then the Big 12 would definitely restructure their GOR to add 4-6 more schools.

The travel for some of these schools has already become an issue so I would think the PAC 12 reaching all the way to the east coast for teams, regardless of how often they may play each other, seems far fetched.
