Re: The SEC
I am sure that notre dame does not want to give up that NBC money. You could try to add Pitt but Penn State might not like it. A logical choice would be Marshall or another MAC team. I doubt you can get a Big East or a Big 12 team but the Big East may be the easiest of the two to poach a team from.
The Big 10 has been slow to modernise (besides the tv network).
The ACC was allowed to have a championship game with 11 teams until they added the 12th. You guys have a nice conference with a hell of team on top with OSU but you lack the overall conference depth.
