NCAA Conference Realignment

Here is my take on the NCAA Conference Realignment.

Obviously, I have no insight other than rumors and reports – but this is what I think the NCAA Division I (FBS) conferences could…or should…look like when its all said and done.

In this Blog, the total 11 conference (currently) combine into 9 ‘bigger’ conferences. Also, the total of 120 D-1 (FBS) schools goes to 122 with inclusion of Villanova and So.Illinois.

Note: I may be wrong on projected Division of ‘proposed’ new team in that conference
