Top 10 Best/Worst Conference Changes in Conference Realignment | College Football Top Tens


College football realignment has been a hot-topic issue in the college football world over the last decade or so, and rumors about where teams could go and what individual conferences will do have run rampant. With that, there have been several fantastic decisions made–and some, not so much. Upon request from some of y’all, I decided to take a look at some of the best and worst conference changes during conference realignment, some only happened a few years ago, while some took place to five decades ago. There are too many available choices to list in this video, so I left out a few that I wanted to include, such as Mizzou to the SEC, Utah to the Pac-12, and Georgia Tech to the ACC. I tried to craft this list thinking about not just the football program (though obviously I weighed that more than other issues), but also the school as a whole and other athletic departments. So, here is my list. Let me know what I missed on and what you agree with in the comment section!
