With 50 teams changing conferences and a brand new conference taking shape in the process, the college basketball landscape transformed drastically on July 1.
A lot of the moves were more or less irrelevant. Unless you're a proud alumnus of Houston Baptist, there's no reason for you to know or care that the Huskies are now a member of the Southland conference as opposed to the now dissolved Great West that they played in last season.
On the other hand, some of the shifts were nothing short of massive. It's not very often that the reigning National Champion becomes a member of a conference that didn't even exist when it was cutting down the nets.
Most of the realignment of national interest was localized to six conferences. The AAC, ACC, A-10, Big East, C-USA and WAC each underwent quite the makeover. As such, we'll be taking a look at each of them to recap which teams came and went and to identify the biggest winners and losers from these changes.
