Going along with the idea of creating a new conference to replace the Big East as a BCS conference got complicated seeing as there would need to be some way of keeping certain Big East teams in the BCS. The solution would be to change conferences for certain teams, but only for football. I would take Duke and North Carolina from the ACC and put them into the Big East. In return I would add West Virginia and South Florida to the ACC. I would take Indiana and Northwestern and also move them to the Big East and add Rutgers and Louisville to the Big Ten. Now some old school traditionalists may have a huge problem with this, but until they give us a playoff system it may be the only solution. Now then, onto the Western 12 Conference.
Here are the 12 teams I would use to form the Western 12...
TCU Horned Frogs
Fresno State Bulldogs
Boise State Broncos
San Diego State Aztecs
Tulsa Golden Hurricane
Now I'm sure there are those of you out there that think this is blasphemy, but the all the BCS Conferences are East of the Rockies and that is an unbalanced equation any way you cut it, especially since I'd put the WAC and Mountain leaders against any Big East leaders. Now I know Jimmie will support this as this gives his Aztecs a shot at the BCS...eventually, when they finally recover from losing Marshall Faulk.
