Finally Completed. This was a lot of work for me!
Realignment Madness: A new NCAA series by TrueYankee26.
In 2045, the SEC keeps capturing many football titles to the point where the rest of college football can't catch up. From 2021-2040, the SEC wins all but 7 titles, with Ohio State, Notre Dame, USC, Clemson, Texas, Oklahoma and Miami winning one each. Bama, LSU, Florida and Auburn collects more championships, with even the long suffering Georgia Bulldogs and Tennessee Volunteers winning one each. The top recruits go to the SEC schools like Bama who continues to be successful as Saban leaves Tuscaloosa at the end of the 2029 season as Alabama is hit with a harsh recruiting violation going into effect, opening the door for some more archrival Auburn and LSU titles.
One year later, the Pac-12 and Big 12 announce a merger that creates a giant conference west of the Mississippi. Everybody except West Virginia Joins the PAC-12 Big-12 Alliance, the Mountaineers become members of the ACC. In 2046, the ACC and Big 10 follows suit, making a Midwest and East Coast powerhouse, and even brings Notre Dame aboard. They will not lose NBC, as the Peacock Network immediately announces a deal with the ACC Big 10 Alliance. Not to be outdone, the SEC adds Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Liberty, Baylor, TCU and BYU as retaliation for the mega mergers of the PAC-12-Big 12, and the ACC-Big 10. The SEC drops "Southeastern Conference" and goes by SEC full time (much like CBS and ESPN corporately went by their initials) as a consequence because their members do not have to be in the Southeast to join anymore. A group of wealthy Ivy league grads convince the Ivy League to join the FBS.
For the next 7 years (2046-2052), only 1 SEC title (2049 LSU) and many defeats, with Notre Dame, Miami, Florida State and Penn State of the ACC-Big 10 and Texas and Oregon of the PAC-12-Big 12 capturing the titles for the two "alliance" conferences. College fans who resented the SEC dominance cheered, but through 2069, the SEC rebounds with 7 titles in 17 years.
