Conference realignment has once again become the main topic of discussion in the college football world.
The SEC made the first move when they accepted Texas A&M, but the threat of a lawsuit still has the process held up.
Not to be outdone, the ACC once again raided the Big East like they did in 2003, this time snagging Pittsburgh and Syracuse. They also upped their buyout fee to $20 million to make sure their teams stay put and don’t get poached by the SEC or Big Ten.
This move has left the Big East in complete shambles and rumors are running rampant about who is next to leave the conference and where they would go.
On the west coast, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech have all been in talks with the Pac-12 on possibly becoming new members.
Meanwhile, teams like TCU and Iowa State are left out in the cold, waiting for someone to give them a call to join a major conference.
It is messy and may ruin some of the sport's best rivalries, but conference expansion is happening whether teams like it or not.
