The realignment carousel keeps spinning - Big 12 Edition

As anyone that's paid attention to college football has noticed, the realignment carousel is spinning again. Reports are that Oklahoma and Texas A&M are preparing to blow up the Big 12 because of the Longhorn Network.

Let's be realistic: without Oklahoma and Texas A&M, the Big 12 is Texas and the Pips.

Supposedly, Oklahoma is courting the Pac-12 and Texas A&M is courting the SEC.

So, let's say the Big 12 dissolves and everyone starts grabbing schools from the Big 12, ACC, and Big East. I added the ACC and Big East because basketball realistically isn't the money maker football is, and top football schools in those conferences are going to be looking for new conferences in short order to boost football profits. From a football perspective, who would you want to pick up?

My thoughts? Boston College, Rutgers, Mizzou, and Kansas. Good fits geographically, add major media markets, all have national cachet, and are well regarded academically.
