    Figured I'd throw this up here with the news that A&M is now officially going to the SEC beginning in 2012.

    For Season 2, these teams need to be in new conferences:

    TCU -> Big East
    Texas A&M -> SEC (West Division)
    Hawaii -> Mountain West
    Nevada -> Mountain West
    Fresno State -> Mountain West

    This is all that there is? I thought there was one more, but I could be mistaken.

    Ya I'm pretty sure BYU is already independent.

    Also-what is the final word on Mizzou-I've heard both ways, but I think(but not sure) that the last article I read said they were staying in the Big 12

    It won't matter for 2012, as they probably won't move until later.

    Yeah. Pitt, Syracuse, Mizzou (if leaving at all) wont take affect till later on. I'm sure there will be some more changes by the time we get to Season 3. 2012 is all that matters right now.

    EDIT: Yeah Hokies, BYU is already an independent in this game.

    Missouri-TCU rivalry bout to get intense. But, knowing Missouri and their dire want to be relevant, they'll probably switch to the SEC by the time the season is over.

    Ok guys, since a lot of the conference changes hoopla is not set in stone, I think Im going to improvise a bit. with the ACC adding Pitt and Syracuse, the divisions will probably be re-aligned a bit as well. It's not official yet, but I read through a few proposals online and I like this one a lot. So, the divisions will look like this for the ACC:

    ACC Atlantic
    1. Boston College
    2. Maryland
    3. Pittsburgh
    4. Syracuse
    5. Virginia
    6. Virginia Tech
    7. Miami
    ACC Coastal
    1. Clemson
    2. Duke
    3. Florida State
    4. Georgia Tech
    5. Wake Forest
    6. North Carolina
    7. North Carolina State
    I'm putting TCU and West Virginia in the Big 12, giving them 10 teams. Mizzou is now in the SEC. The Big East only has 5 schools, so based off of who they are inviting in real life, I will add those to the Big East. Boise State, Navy, Air Force, Houston, SMU, and UCF will give the Big East 11 teams.

    Also, the BCS recently proposed a change that would have them take away automatic bids for conference winners to certain bowl games, so I will be doing that as well. No more PAC-12 champ automatically goes to the Rose Bowl, for instance. Hope you guys like the changes. Things are definitely about to get more exciting around here now!

    Syracuse now officially leaving on July 1st, 2013, and will be a member of the ACC for the 2013 season. This most likely paves the way for Pitt to do the same.

    on ESPN it says they expect Pittsburgh to leave the Big East by the Fall of 2013, doesn't state if they would do it before the 2013 season.
