    Do you guys think we'll see more conference realignment in FCS in the next 2-5 years?

    Should Tennessee State take Savannah State's place in the MEAC? Although Nashville is closer to most of the SWAC schools....Monmouth needs a NE based league for its FB team....and need about 3 more FCS FB schools in the west, so NAU, SUU, Weber St, CPSLO, et al, can have their own, more geographically suited conference.

    I have no idea.
    Just because you are offended doesn't mean you are right.

    I mean, none of us really has any idea. If you want to speculate, why not just go ahead with whatever you were thinking?

    The Big 12 is the major domino to fall when they decide to expand, IMO. It will trickle down from there.

    The Big 12 is going to collapse and cease to exist. The better schools will get swallowed by the remaining P4, the rest will go to the AAC or MWC.

    I think the biggest FCS changes will come in the west. The WAC are going to continue to look to D2 for expansion candidates. If they can get two or three D2 FB schools to bite, and NMSU finally get it and move down, expect the WAC to get serious about starting FCS FB. If that happens I would expect some of the southern tier of the BSC along with Poly and Davis to look to the WAC. The west could use a second FCS conference. In fact, its needed.

    I don't see the Big 12 collapsing as long as Texas is aboard, and Texas is making a lot of money off their exclusive TV deal which any other conference would likely make them give up. So I don't see them leaving. Plenty of schools are actively pushing to join. It's a matter of time and who, IMO.

    The Big South may pick up a Pioneer team or two. Most of the Eastern and Southern conferences are fairly stable. The MVFC is in danger of becoming too big as is the Big Sky, and the two of them should split into 3 geographically reasonable conferences - but they probably won't.
