Looking east, I wish that the Big Ten had made a move on Maryland and Syracuse and then had picked up Mizzou and tried to grab Oklahoma out west (in the hope that they could be parted from Oklahoma State). That would've been my ideal 16-team Big Ten.

Regardless, hope we don't waste time on Notre Dame.
Oklahoma can't be parted from Texas. That's your problem with them.

ND is already a partial ACC member.
