College Football: My Dream Realignment Map

New, 5 comments

College Football would be a lot more fun this way

Oklahoma v Oklahoma State

After taking a final back in 2013, I was still a little high-strung and couldn’t sit still. I had to do something with my time between two cleaning sessions at my apartment, so I made a conference realignment map based solely on geography, rivalries and fun. Last week, I found it on my laptop, and I’ve decided to share it with the world.

A few notes:

  • Protected rivalries are marked in parenthesis.
  • Wake Forest is shit out of luck.
  • Yes, I know Tallahassee is west of Clemson and Athens, but I’m keeping the Florida schools in one division.
  • The Great Plains Conference would be hella weak.
  • The Big 12 would be the most fun conference, as was intended.
  • Notre Dame and BYU can keep being independent. I’m totally cool with that.
