Revolving Door WAC Moves Step Closer To Survival

The addition of Cal State Bakersfield and Utah Valley helps move the WAC closer to the magic number of seven: the number of schools needed to retain its automatic bid to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.

Notre Dame Apparently Headed To The ACC (For All But Football, Hockey)

Updated with SB Nation link. I guess the idea of playing basketball against the likes of SMU and Houston didn't sit well in South Bend. The first info I saw on this subjecthttp://espn.go.com/college-sports/story/_/id/8369070/notre-dame-sports-football-hockey-acc came from ESPN's Brett McMurphy, who has a good track record with this sort of thing. While I've been expecting a move like this for some time (based on message board chatter), I didn't quite expect it today. The Fighting Irish will now see a sizable chunk of its football schedule filled with ACC opposition (5 games according to McMurphy). Plus, they'll join fellow ACC rival Boston College in Hockey East. (Note the ACC will need four more teams to sponsor hockey as a conference, a big number, but not too sizable.) The big question is when this move happens, given the Big East's 27-month notice requirement. But, hey, it's not like Notre Dame would have much issue getting past that hurdle financially. Another is if football joins the conference down the road at some point, perhaps when the NBC money runs out.

VCU to Atlantic 10 is all but official now. The university has a presser scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and the conference has one set for an hour later. I've updated the Conference Changes for 2013-14 page with this info. Update: CBS's Brett McMurphy (who else) says this move is effective for THIS fall. So the Conference Changes 2012-13 page received an unexpected update. Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but between work and moving, I haven't had a ton of time.

Conference Realignment For 2013-14

I'm updating this as quickly as I can based on new information. Today, I've moved Charlotte, UTSA, Louisiana Tech, North Texas, and FIU to Conference USA, reducing their soon-to-be former conferences in kind. As for Old Dominion ... well, that's a different story entirely. The Monarchs have yet to commit. When they do, I'll move them, and wait for the next set of dominoes to fall.
