It's a dog-eat-dog world out there in college athletics. In today's realignment, anything can happen. It's not out of the picture for schools like Baylor, West Virginia, UCF and Cincinnatti to pack their things and head from the Big 12 to the ACC.

Ok, sure, maybe that sounds slightly crazy, but what if you consider how badly both the ACC and Pac-12 are going to fight to stay alive? The Pac-12 to band together and make a call tomorrow that places the likes of BYU, Boise State, Fresno State and San Diego State within their grasp to stay afloat.

The ACC could respond to the potential loss of Clemson and Florida State by calling local teams like West Virginia, UCF and Cincinnatti. In that case, those teams have a much better chance of winning in the ACC, and their games would be far closer than those in the Big 12. Each school would absolutely consider it.

In that event, what happens to the Big 12? More or less, it collapses as we know it. Everyone scrambles to the Pac-12 or the ACC. Maybe we aren't that far away from that reality. Maybe we aren't that far away from the Baylor Bears being an ACC school to keep themselves afloat. That would have been music to Bear fans' ears this time last summer.
