Kansas and Missouri going with Texas to the ACC? It's one conference realignment scenario

If the Jayhawks go East, where do they land?

The latest college conference realignment rumors from Texas' Orangebloods.com has the Longhorns looking at the ACC. Who cares about Texas? Not me.

But if Kansas and Missouri fans were hoping that the Jayhawks and Tigers might be breaking away from Bevo, hold tight. Orangebloods' Chip Brown writes that KU and Mizzou could both be targets of an expanded ACC. Twice-a-year meetings with Roy Williams' North Carolina Tar Heels or Coach K's Duke Blue Devils? Tell me where to sign.

On the flip side, talk about a brutal travel schedule.

Missouri gets one mention in Brown's story as an ACC possibility. He mostly writes about Kansas, and even the references to the Jayhawks are few. But this is notable:

"The Southeastern Conference and Big Ten stand to poach schools out of the ACC if it appears the college arms race is leading to 16-team super conferences. The ACC could help fortify its walls by adding Texas and a school like Kansas."

Of course, this is all rumors. Despite Oklahoma making sexy eyes at the Pac-12, the Big 12 has yet to die. The conference is about as resilient as Michael Myers.

Meanwhile, the Lawrence Journal-World's Tom Keegan makes a strong case for the Jayhawks heading to the Big East. There isn't a better basketball conference in the country.
