Default agree...and disagreed.

I completely agree on University of Chicago being a terrible idea, but it has been tossed around, mostly to be driven into the ground because it is such a stupid idea. I think smaller conferences could be a possibility, but the teams you'd want to see join are just a touch too far away, Utah, Boise St. BYU etc. I think there'd be a decent possibility for South Dakota St. to join up, but they've just finished moving from DII to DI and making another move to the elite would be tough this soon I think.
I understand that a Big 12 team switching would cause some problems, but Iowa St. stands out to me as being a very good fit and filling the gap in the Big 12 would be a lot easier than the Big Ten with TCU and Houston looking pretty dang good, not to mention Utah, BYU and Boise St. would be closer to those schools and better fits in the Big 12 (in my opinion) anyway.
