I keep checking in to see if there is any news flying around about conference realignment etc. and there is nothing. I am surprised there isn't more speculation going on all over the web. Is anybody hearing any new rumors or information?

I think it also feels like a pretty standard if/then flowchart at this point. If the Pac 12 or SEC force super conferences to happen, the Big 12 is broken up by the Pac 12, Big 10 and SEC; the ACC loses a few teams to the SEC; and the Big East football schools and remaining ACC schools merge. If they don't, the Big East gets a phat TV deal in a year and maybe adds a team for football. Either way UConn is fine, and there is not much analysis necessary.

Texas A&M is the worst drama queen program in expansion history. Even message boards are tired of their BS.

You mean other than the fact that we had an earthquake and a hurricane last week and the season opens this week?

I just farted - temporary expansion, then nnnnng - enough about expansion, time for a kickoff!
I think super-conferences are inevitable. They make a playoff easier to accomplish. Anyone have any air refreshener??

You mean the devastating earthquake, the hurricane so serious that you can't post to a message board...oh wait, or the game that is cancelled and happens to be against Fordham? Sure, no time for talking about the biggest story in major college sports right now.

p.s. No, I am not insensitive about the hurricane, I live in Florida and get how serious a hurricane is, but if you can post, you can post.

Word on the street: this was apparently the final straw for aTm.

I honestly can't say I blame them...

EcoKat led to the demise of the Big XII.... Good going, KSU!

(Seriously, they needed that to raise environmental awareness?!)

Dude -- you asked why people weren't talking about and I told you. You didn't ask whether they could talk about it if they wanted to. Sheesh.

I take issue with that assertion. If it was truly "the biggest story in major college sports" our new AD would have at least made passing mention of it.

I think people are getting tired of the rumors involving expansion, especially when 99% of said rumors turn out to be complete BS. I will begin to talk about expansion when a school president is in front of a podium. I'm offically expansioned out. I'm more focused on this thing called the season coming up.
