Division 1 College Conference Realignment

Recommended Posts

Looks like the Big 12 might be getting ready to kill off the Big East once and for all.

Wait there is more. Louisville might consider a move to the Big 12 if a call from Dallas is made. And don’t be surprised if Boise State also gets a call. Both schools were on the short list during the Big 12′s recent configuration process in which Texas A&M and Missouri went to the SEC and TCU and West Virginia joined the Big 12.

Can't wait to get off the sinking ship that is the BE. If Louisville goes, the Big XII better bring Cincinnati or Boise State. Cincy has the rivalry factor and Boise, for many years, a staple for the BCS.

At least one Conference had to make a move that was objectively insane to pull this off. We weren't wrong.

What makes you think Hicktown Kentucky Community College is in a position to make demands?

The Big 12 doesn't give a :censored: about Louisville's rivalry with the podunk Cincinnati Bearcats.

That's my point. I saw the insane behavior coming. NCAA football has been insane for years. Just in different ways. Still, the craziest of American sports.

Never thought I'd be ready to give up on college athletics. Sure enough, it seems that moment is coming closer and closer.

So Georgia Tech shows up in some Big Ten rumors.

Anybody want to take a stab at naming something more quixotic than the Big Ten trying to establish a presence in Atlanta?

Miami is in there too. Wackiness a plenty.

Hell, grab North Carolina and Miami and just double down on the whole "postseason ineligible" thing.

Hearing rumors that this is another step in Jim Delaney's master plan (which I have to imagine is written with crayon in the middle of a Lisa Frank coloring book) of a 16 team super-conference that ends with getting North Carolina into the B10.

Going back to rams' point, if this is nothing more than the B10 playing the role of "spurned lover turned arsonist" to Notre Dame, I would be slightly surprised. Don't get me wrong, nothing would make me happier than a 4 super conference alignment with ND freezing out in the cold of football independence, but I'm not sure what Rutgers or Maryland bring to the table outside of being located somewhat near large metropolitan areas. If you ask me, a school like Boston College would be a much better fit than a Rutgers from an academic and athletic tradition standpoint.

Lol, be careful what you wish for. They have been mentioned too. The B1G will go to 16 sooner rather than later.

Penn State and Nebraska made sense.

Maryland is a stretch but I can accept it.

Rutgers??? Nothing against Rutgers it just doesn't make sense in the B1G.

Pod systems will fix this. Mini four team divisions with in the conference. Think NFL.

Hence why I mentioned them. At least North Carolina has the appropriate academic profile for the Conference (large Public Ivy). At least until their accreditation gets pulled for the little "football and basketball grading scandal".

Well Maryland and Jersey both at least touch the B10 footprint. West Virginia doesn't even come close to Big 12 country.

But it's okay because they put normal students in the fake classes too...

And to help out the rumors that UNC is going to be the final team in the B1G Superconference, it's Jim Delaney's alma mater.

So when does Texas, Baylor, Oklahoma & Oklahoma State bolt for the Pac-12? People will deny it but it will happen eventually. The Big 12 wants to be stable and together my ass.

I agree with you on BC being a better fit, but I'm willing to bet this has everything to do with it:

Obviously, Rutgers and Maryland do NOT have much pull in their respective markets, but you know Delaney is thinking about BTN... and even having access to those areas in the event either team suddenly starts trending upward again, he'll look like a $mart man.

There may not be a lot of people in New York that care about Rutgers but there are plenty of Michigan, Penn State, Illinois, etc. alums in New York that would watch the BTN to see their teams.
