If we go to 16 in one jump I dont see how you would have support from the current league if you brought in four power house football schools. It would have to be balanced in that at most you take two good schools like aTm and OU and then two lesser powers. I know aTm isn't considered a huge power now but if they joined the SEC I think their recruiting goes to a new level and they become a big threat, especially if Texas gets left out in the cold and goes indy.
I mean what's in it for UT, ole Miss, Miss St, etc if we get four new powers as strong as Bama? They will become the new Vandys. Gotta give those schools some teams they have a chance to beat if you add some they have no chance of competing with on a regular basis. Adding OU, aTm, FSU, and VT doesn't do that. Plus that would almost demand that the SEC had at least one seat at the NC game. Other conferences would follow suit automatically and we would end up with a playoff between the mega conferences winners and maybe runner ups for the NC.
