If we assume the Big XII will make no changes until their GoR expires in 2025, BYU probably doesn't have anywhere to go
(the PAC seems to be showing no interest).

At that point, the more "valuable" Big XII schools might join the other P(4)s and the Big XII disbands.

MWC could add BYU and UTEP for 14 NOW....

or BYU could stay independent (there seems to be thing they like about independence, but then things they don't like).

Let's suppose that in 2025, the ACC, Big Ten, SEC, and PAC take advantage of the expiration of Big XII GoR to expand to 16 each, and pick apart the Big XII.

PAC will have 4 openings;
SEC will have 2;
Big XII will have 2;
ACC might take in Notre Dame as full member (#15) and then one more.

Numerous scenarios.....

My thinking is that ACC will take in Notre Dame + either UConn or WVU.

The PAC / Big Ten / SEC would then engage in a free-for-all with their remaining 8 invitations.
It is NOT a slam dunk that all 8 invitations would go to current Big XII schools.

Certainly Texas, OU, OSU, and KU have appeal.
KSU and Texas Tech to a lesser extent.
WVU could be a nice addition to either ACC or SEC.

I think RIGHT NOW, BYU and Houston may be more attractive expansion candidates (in terms of fan following / TV markets) than
Baylor, TCU, and Iowa State.

If we go to 4 "P4" conferences, I see BYU plugging into ONLY the PAC, and only in certain scenarios.

There may be a scramble by the numerous conferences to grab Texas.
PAC and SEC might both be interested in the Oklahoma schools.
If the PAC's first choice is UT-TT-OU-OSU, but it doesn't work out,
BYU may be part of PAC's "Plan B".

As Homloe indicated, BYU's mission should be to have more on-the-field success,
to enhance BYU's attractiveness before the next round of realignment.
Maybe they tweak their Honor Code during this period....

I'm guessing his thought is to "bide their time" and enhance their competitiveness, so if a P4 forms and those teams sort of "break away" (once the Big XII GoR expires and Texas and OU are free to go wherever in 2024-2025), BYU might somehow be positioned to climb aboard. Otherwise if the Big XII decides to remain a P5 conference and expand, they are positioned for that too. If somehow there is a shake-up and BYU is left out, at that point perhaps they resign themselves to rejoining the MWC...

In any event they will manage as is for the next 7 years or so. They have to live within their means, which so many P5 schools seem incapable of right now. Everyone is spending $20 million on their coaching staff, and building facilities like there is no tomorrow. If BYU doesn't over-commit their available funds, they should survive...

Some recent talk appears to indicate BYU was close last fall to being
a B12 expansion member. The other sounds like it was Houston from
most messages, though Houston did have opposition.
BYU refused to alter the language of their Honor Code, and that put a
stop to expansion.
BYU may just wait it out till '24/'25 as a fb indy. Whatever the social/
political climate may be, then, is unclear. The task for BYU is finding
the willingness, as time draws closer, to gain improved compatibility
extending beyond the quality of their athletic teams and appreciable
fan support.
Who knows what the B12 shall do in 7 years. They are a unusual bunch
when it comes to deciding. They may act when they must, or when
it is too late.

Also, Lee Corso views Texas and OU could be expansion candidates.
