...for the ACC? Assuming that no conference goes beyond 16.

To me, it would be:
- SEC nabs FSU and VT and WVU.
- Big10 gets off the pot and grabs Missouri, Kansas, Buttgers and UConn.
- ACC then is 2 short of 14, and 4 short of 16 with few options. (USF? L'Ville? Cincy? UCF?)

SEC takes FSU, VT, and NC St then...

B1G takes MD, UVA, UNC, and Duke
 
SEC gets FSU, Clemson and VT
Big 10 gets ND, Maryland, Rutgers and UConn
Big 12 gets TCU, Louisville, WV, and USF

B1G takes MD, UVA, UNC, and Duke
Followed by the Big XII taking WVU, UL, UConn & Rutgers, Cincy & USF

The ACC is down to 7 with little left to pick from.
 
NC and Duke ARE the ACC. It really surprises me that a lot of you don't realize this.

The ACC is down to 7 with little left to pick from.

I would say instead followed by the P12 adding Texas, OU, Okie St, and Texas Tech.

That would leave

B12 6 teams- ISU, Mizzou, KU, K St, TCU, Baylor
BE 6 teams- UL, Cincy, WV, RU, UConn, USF
ACC 7 teams- BC, SU, Pitt, Wake, Clemson, GA Tech, Miami
Indy 2 teams- BYU, ND

So from those 21 teams you would need to take 16, meaning 5 get left out. Best mix IMO would be...

ND/BYU, Mizzou/KU, TCU/Baylor, UConn/RU, SU/BC, Pitt/WV, GA Tech/Clemson, Miami/Louisville

Left out- ISU, K St, Wake, Cincy, USF
