B12 raid on ACC good for Big East

I believe that when the Big12 finally expands it will leave the Big East alone, and instead raid the ACC of its top football programs. Rumors mention Notre Dame as another Big12 expansion possibility. If the Big12 goes past twelve schools to fourteen or a full sixteen, I still think they ignore the Big East and go after more ACC schools (based on other Twitter rumors). But for now let's say that the ACC only loses FSU, Clemson, and Miami (FL), along with Notre Dame. That would arguably leave only VaTech, and possibly GaTech, as the ACC's best football programs. Now sure the conference is tops at basketball, but football is king and one ACC athletic director made mention last week that football is the only reason they got that $17 million/per school media deal. So with that in mind I don't believe that any Big East school in its right mind would accept an invite from a gutted ACC when it can stay in the Big East, which would arguably become the fifth best NCAA FBS football conference. In fact Pitt and Syracuse may even come back. And if the the ACC only loses two schools still I doubt they try and get back to fourteen, further protecting the Big East from ACC poaching.
