IMHO we are heading towards four 16 team conferences with BIG TEN, PAC-12 and the SEC stable and growing so which one survives and which one dies between the ACC and the Big 12. I think the Big 12 will expand and the ACC will die.

Big 12 because it is football oriented and already has a much better TV deal. ACC will be poached.
Anybody that has paid attention knew the super conferences were coming
And yes the ACC is toast and so is any program that doesn't get a spot.... cough cough..... Miami

The PAC 12 cant expand without Big 12 teams.
If that happens Miami will go independent.
BYU / Boise St / SDSU are great schools for the Pac 12 .

The only one they could add is BYU, the rest don't fit their criteria.
nope. Doesn't matter though, the PAC-12's spot is safe no matter what the scenario. No need to expand at all, though I personally would have taken the Oklahoma Schools last year when we had the chance, that would have most likely hurt the Big-12 to the point where we would have gotten Texas as well a few years down the road.

BYU has 0% chance of being accepted into the PAC-12. Only religious school that the PAC-12 would take is Notre Dame.
Nor does BYU.
I wouldn't say 0%. I agree that there are many more options that the PAC12 would explore before taking them, but IF everyone has the number 16 in their mind, BYU goes somewhere, I would bet. Personally I would say the Big12 is a better fit for them, since there already are religious schools in that conference and that conference has shown that they would allow a team with their own TV contract to keep their network which I am sure BYU would want to do since they just started the BYU Network.
2nd of all, the PAC12 already has a team in Utah and the Big12 does not.
Lastly, the thinking in Provo doesn't allign with any schools in the PAC12, which is the point you are getting at.
I am not saying I would go much higher than 0%, but if forced with a decision with BYU and a Fresno St or UNLV, BYU looks pretty good if you don't focus on the limitations. The toughest criteria with BYU is that they don't participate in anything on Sunday, which I think is the toughest bump for them getting into any major conference at the moment.
I think Boise and SDSU get in the PAC12 before BYU, honestly.
