What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Tyler Raborn from Sports Righting.com was right…he said I would be updating this map regularly, and not even a week later, here we are. Now that Louisville is the latest defection from the Big East, several new factors have come into play.
1) Don’t look now, but the ACC seems to be interested in making in-roads into SEC territory. Kentucky joins Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina as states split between the SEC and the ACC.
2) The Big East is in it’s death throes as a major conference. It might as well just merge with Conference USA at this point.
3) Which conference is going to be the first to move into the vast expanse of Unconquered Territory? We still consider Boise State to be available, because you know they are going to bail on the Big East just like TCU did. Not to mention,
Mormon Notre Dame BYU is still in play as well, much like pretty much anybody in the Mountain West Conference, unless it manages to reform as a serious competitor to the Big 12.
What is all boils down to is we are clearly on a march to a college football world with four uber-conferences. It just a question of which of the five shown on this map will be the next to meet the fate of the Big East?
The other important question: How long before we are updating this map yet again?
Reblogged this on Sports Blog Movement.
What was that old board game we all used to play as kids, with the dice in the plastic bubble?
We’d press down on the bubble and the dice would always come up with a different number.
That’s what conference realignment reminds me of, except there is no bubble. Just a mess everywhere.
Oddly enough, the game was called “Trouble.” Insert your own joke here.
