Conference Realignment: Where Is Your Team Going

If you are a fan of sports you are totally confused about why schools are moving into new conferences after spending years in the same conference and same area for such a long time.

As of September 18, 2011, the ACC officially brought in Pitt and Syracuse as a member of the 14 school conference. ACC could still expand to 16 with additional Big East schools such as Rutgers and UConn. Texas had been trying to work a deal with the ACC but the ACC has held firm on equal revenue sharing, most likely removing Texas from the ACC scenario.

The Big East, like the Big 12, is on life support. With the losses of Pitt and Syracuse to the ACC, the conference is now at 7 members for football. The Big East is now in a position where they risk loosing further members:

  • Rutgers and UConn remain potential flight risks to the ACC should they expand to 16
  • WVU remains a target for the SEC #14 spot 
  • Louisville, WVU, TCU and even Rutgers remain on the radar for a rebuilt Big 12 should Texas remain.

The Big East was actively looking to expand to 10 football members, considering football expansion to 12, but would prefer football only candidates. If the SEC expands, there will likely be trickle down with the Big East losing schools to ACC, SEC, Big 12.  Potential expansion candidates include: Houston, UCF, Villanova, Navy/Army, Temple, East Carolina, and Memphis.
