I think the in state rivalries would persist in any realignment, USCe-Clemson, FSU-UF, UK-Laville, etc.  I'm not sure shutting someone else out is practicable or desirable.

Creating a strong product for media revenue would be the goal.

I seem to remember that Kentucky has had to be practically forced to play L'ville.  UK sees it as a lose-lose proposition.  And someone on these boards opines that there's no particularly compelling reason for Georgia to play Georgia Tech.
If Oklahoma never plays Oklahoma State in football again, Sooner fans will not lament the loss.  OU has won 81% of the 115 games played in that series, and the margin has only increased since Bob Stoops arrived in Norman.  And FoSu--petty, small-minded, jealous--is not a good host.  That school does everything possible to keep OU fans from attending the games in Stillwater.  They would rather have 50,000 seats filled with no Sooner fans present, than their full-capacity 60,000 seats full with only the bare required minimum of visiting fans.

Yeah, I don't want to play Tech any more, but I'm a minority.  I think these games would persist, or most of them.

The ACC might eventually see a more natural "alliance" with the SEC as I first was musing.  Maybe the SEC ends up with four 8 team "divisions" at the end of it, not really something I'm advocating, just a possibility.

It's all about the Benjies.

That would be, "too bad."

It could well be those three conferences are having conversations about options, which would be understandable, and the final "solution" will be something different, or perhaps they decide nothing is needed.  The KStates of the world are the ones who should be scrambling.

the 3 conferences band together to protect one or two of them being left out if the SEC keeps expanding

say the SEC and B1G go together to create a super league and the ACC gets left out only for Clemson, FSU, and the Irish to join the super league

If you ponder what would happen if every P5 team left their conference and started over ....

Well now it'll be back.  Hopefully every year, but at worst, a couple of times every 4-5 years.

every P5 program could negotiate their own contract for media rights with the networks or content providers

set their own schedule to create suitable content

like Notre Dame

I think conferences would reform, just based on geography and common interests.  No WVU in the B12.

But it's hypothetical obviously.  I sort of like the concept of two super"conferences" each with 4 8 team divisions.

Nine: Combined Big Ten, ACC and Pac-12 teams — including Notre Dame, which caucuses with the ACC — ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 at the end of last season. And that was in a year when Group of Five programs, choosing not to wring their hands the way the Big Ten and Pac-12 did, enjoyed good years in the polls.

If The Athletic’s report about an alliance between the ACC, Pac-12 and Big Ten turns out to be something, then that’s quite a powerful scheduling setup.

Granted some amount of this is a self-fulfilling prophesy, because the biggest fan bases also tend to get the better slots.  So it's a chicken-egg thing.  It's not surprise USC doesn't draw those kind of numbers, when half of their games are played at 10 PM on the east coast.
