Super Conferences~Pac whatever and B16 10

Since Texas A&M has notified the Big 12 about their desire to leave the conference, the Super Conference chatter has resumed. Now would Super Conferences be good for football? Probably not. Everything that happens because of greed and for money normally doesn't work out. The biggest issue for me is the possibility that some great rivalries would be lost. I've heard people say that if Oklahoma goes to the Pac whatever and Texas goes independent, the Red River Rivalry would be lost.
The only positive thing about Super Conferences in my view is that it could help pave the road towards a playoff. Here are my Super Conferences...
Pacific 16
UCLA--------------------Arizona St
Oregon St---------------Oklahoma St
Washington--------------Texas Tech
Washington St-----------Baylor

I have added 4 Big 12 schools but not Texas. That is because I believe that the Pac whatever will not except Texas unless the share Longhorn Network with the other Pac whatever schools. Texas is not good at sharing...they will go independent.
After the no brainer of putting the Oklahomas in this conference, I also added Texas Tech. Geographically Lubbock is in West Texas and the type of play fits in with the West Coast teams. Their defense is simply not good enough to be in the SEC. Baylor, a team that I believe would have a much better record if they weren't in the Big 12 South, is also invited after a successful 2011.
The original Pac 8 is make up the Coastal Division and the expansion teams make up the Mountain.

B16 10
Rutgers-----------Michigan St
Penn St-----------Wisconsin
Ohio St-----------Minnesota
Purdue------------Iowa St
Michigan----------Kansas St

I have added Rutgers because the Big 10 has been looking into the NYC market forever and Rutgers would fit in with the Big 10 more than for instance, Syracuse. Iowa St, Kansas, and Kansas St have also been added. They might not improve the Big 10 football wise , but they do in most other sports and they are a wise geographical choice. While the East may seem loaded with good teams, at least it won't be as dominant as the Big 12 south was.
