For the last three years, college football realignment has been a constant topic of discussion.

College football’s carousel hummed and spun with rumors and innuendo about which team would head where.

Were Clemson and Florida State going to the Big 12? Or the SEC?

Was Notre Dame going to the Big 12 or the Big 10?

Eventually, some big moves happened: Nebraska, Maryland and Rutgers to the Big 10; Syracuse, Pitt and Louisville to the ACC; Missouri and Texas A&M to the SEC; Colorado and Utah to the Pac-12; and TCU and West Virginia to the Big 12, among others.
