I graduated from Texas State University in 2007. I've been following realignment since Texas St started discussing it years back and even more now that they truly plan on jumping. I enjoy FCS football for its playoff system and follow FBS as well, though I usually go for the underdog.

JP

St. Bonaventure grad, worked the University of Dayton and now at Tulane.

Got interested in all this stuff when I was an intern in sports info at St. Bona/talking to friends in the UD athletic department when the ACC/BE shenanigans were going down.

I think the BCS is corrupt and destroying college athletics, and non-BCS basketball teams are just as competitive as BCS schools. They belong in the tournament over 5th, 6th, 7th place BCS teams because statistically, they compile the same win pct vs Top 50 teams in the regular season as those aforementioned mediocre BCS teams; and their is zero correlation between NCAA Tournament win pct by seed and conference alignment. The non-BCS schools are NOT more likely to blow it vs a lower seed, and BCS middle tier teams and non-BCS teams seeded 9-12 have virtually the same win pct as BCS teams seeded 9-12 (actually, a 10 seeded non-BCS team is more likely to beat a 7-seeded BCS team, than a 10-seeded BCS team is to beat a 7-seed non-BCS team; so in a 7-10 matchup, the non-BCS team has a higher win pct regardless of seed).

Oh, and if you haven't picked it up by now, I'm extremely long-winded.

Welcome aboard JP. As a UMass guy, I spent some time in Olean during the glory days of the A10 when UMass had Cal, Temple was a force, GW was strong with Jarvis and Yinka, and STB had Baron.

That said, you'll probably come across posts of mine from the past few years about STB being at the top of my list for A10 contraction. But I also think Dayton is one of the greatest programs in the US. So there's balance for ya...

I saw the Bona comments. And while I was tempted to chant "You can't read" like we Bonnies did to Marcus Camby in 1995, I decided to take the high road, and remind you that the A10 expanded to 14 anticipating a a Big East split... and the basketball side would take two-to-five teams, pushing the A-10 back down to 9-12 teams (In order of probably departure: Xavier, Dayton, Saint Louis, Charlotte; long shots Richmond, Duquesne; All others nil).

The A-10 ain't kicking out St. Bonaventure, because they've been in the league since before they were the A-10. They already "survived" the scandal from a league sense (you don't get kicked out after serving your time), they are past the scandal and now building (first .500 year since the incident), and of course, despite the scandal, they are STILL better program than Fordham.

Fordham's had two winning A-10 seasons in the last two decades. St. Bonaventure has been to five post-seasons since Fordham's last appearance (which came by winning the Patriot League).

And as much as the whole "Ooh, NYC market!" argument is tossed around, when was the last time anyone in NY actually cared about Fordham? Go to any of the four big NY papers (Times, Post, DN, Newsday) and look for the Fordham page. There isn't one. Stonybrook gets more coverage than Fordham (via Newsday).

The A-10 would kick out Fordham for Hofstra before they dump St. Bonaventure.


Anyhow, now that I've proved the long-winded comment... Thanks. This is an awesome site because I haven't found anyone else who actually cares enough about this stuff to talk to about it! I'm stoked to have it in my bookmarks, and no hard feelings about the Bonnies. (Well, except for those who abbreviate it St Bony or St Bonny; it's St. Bona!)

And I'll start it off...

Hi there. I'm Matt. Quinn is a nickname. I am originally from the NJ, outside of NY, went to college at UMass in Amherst, and located to NY after that. I spent 2 cold years in Boston and have been in LA since 2004. I still try to make it back to NY for Yankee games, and always make it to the games in Anaheim and at times other west coast cities. Professionally, I do a few different things in the online space, primarily work in Search Engine Marketing, SEO and general business consulting. That's what pays the bills for all the other things I do in the education space, my obvious sports hobbies, and others such as animal rescue with various organizations.

Hi. I'm Justin. My screen name is that on a few other websites, wissports.net and d3boards.com. I grew up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin and graduated from Winnebago Lutheran Academy in 2006. I now go to Carroll University (formerly Carroll College as of 2008) a Division III school in Waukesha, Wisconsin. I am studying Journalism and I want to get involved in sports when I graduate. I run cross country and track for the Pioneers and am the sports editor of the school newspaper. College basketball is my favorite sport although I enjoy all sports. I got interested in conference realignment in high school when the almost every high school conference in northeastern Wisconsin got shuffled after two schools wanted to move. It was fun as proposal after proposal was brought up and turned down. They never did get it completed while I was in high school. Now I enjoy following colleges try to decide where the best fit is for their program and school is. It's fun to look back and see how one small thing would have drasticly changed the college sports landscape as we know it today (I'm looking at Louisville football and the demise of the Metro Conference).

Hi. I'm John. I am a Florida native and live in Orlando. I have always loved football from the day I saw my first game as a kid. In the beginning, I preferred the NFL over college football. As I got older and experienced the college games, my preference switched. I still love to watch NFL games, but I think college football is much more exciting. I have always had ideas about conference realignment, so I was glad to find this forum.

I am an aspiring historian for Colleeg Sports. I am 17 and have made it my goal to make an encyclopedia on this stuff. Help for my goal would be much appreciated 8-)

After I gave a personal tidbit on another thread, I realized I hadn't ever introduced myself on this thread, despite reading/posting on this site for almost four years!

My user name, dafoeberezin3494, comes from two hockey players: goalie Byron Dafoe (who wore #34) and forward Sergei Berezin (#94). Both of these players peaked in the early 2000s and never played for my favorite team (Detroit Red Wings), but I became fans of the two as players and have since used their names in Internet identities. Feel free to shorten my name to something (DB3494, Dafoe, etc...) if you are replying to me.

I grew up in Michigan and graduated from the University of Michigan in December 2010, studying civil engineering. This fall I started grad school in urban planning at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. From a sports fan perspective, it feels strange now on Saturdays not standing shoulder-to-shoulder with 110,000 other people. Aside from my schools, I will cheer for the Detroit pro teams and the US national soccer team.

I find realignment fascinating because of the multitude of possible end results, and I like analyzing the consequences of decisions made in the process. Which makes realignment similar to urban planning in a way. I'm not an "insider" by any means, so I won't ever have the latest scoop of information. I will attempt to post thoughtful analysis and occasional humor. My time on the site will be limited, especially in the 2nd half of the semester, but I'll try to follow the news as best I can. Many thanks to Quinn for maintaining this site and to all the posters who bring valuable information or thoughtful analysis.

An overdue "welcome". It's such a niche topic, but for me it's always been about the business of college sports. The decisions made require many different variables that it becomes almost a formula...a formula that many respected people in the media just don't get. They assume things are "money grabs" but fail to see the patterns. For instance, if a company can make more money doing something, but in doing so would kill their PR image, it would mean lost money at times. Not every decision is like the Pinto, knowing a product is flawed but knowing the financial damage is cheaper than a recall. So schools move for many reasons with $ being a big one, but needing not just markets but schools that penetrate the markets, all while looking for schools that fit the culture of the conference and academic profile. It's not an urban planning analogy by me, but I can see your point of view based on your studies.
