The Big East would want Baylor because it assures all of its teams in the conference at least one game in Texas per year. With only TCU coming in you would only get to play in Texas once every two years. Playing once every year in Texas helps the Big East in recruiting.

The SEC has done its homework and have in mind that getting the "brand name" is greater than getting media markets. College football is national now and having Florida St. vs LSU etc.. will be greater than having LSU vs Maryland despite the media market in Baltimore. Nationally they will be able to sell FSU vs LSU better. I think if the Big Ten take teams like UConn, Syracuse, and Maryland would be a mistake. Those are media markets that are interested in much more than just college football. Nebraska vs Michigan would get a lot of national attenion versus Michigan vs UConn. At the moment, the product is better than the media markets. Oklahoma, W.Virgina, Pitt, VT, and N. Carolina are good products. For those that say that the B1G will not do anything or that we shouldn't then remember this: If the SEC and Pac 12 and other conferences like the ACC go to 16 teams they will ask the NCAA for a guarenteed 2nd BCS bowl. It would be hard for the B1G to send 2 teams to the BCS on an annual basis with just 12 teams.
