  4. Look back, look ahead: Conference USA

    Dana O'Neil

    The reality that was for Conference USA this past season remains the reality the league must change for the upcoming season. The conference, done in by realignment, has the reputation of being a way station or purgatory instead of a landing place....

  5. Look back, look ahead: Big East

    Eamonn Brennan

    Conference realignment played tricks with time. We saw dozens of changes to collegiate basketball's conference structure in the past five years. As they happened, it felt too fast to catalog -- too cluttered among the theories and contingencies an...

    Myron Medcalf

    In recent years, the Big Ten has been -- arguably -- college basketball's best conference. But the Big 12 fought for that perch in 2013-14. The league featured an impressive lineup, one that only the Big Ten rivaled. Realignment's winds took more ...

    Eamonn Brennan

    One year ago today, on the eve of the greatest sporting event in the world, college basketball was in crisis. It felt that way at least after years of football-dominated conference realignment, decades of slower and lower-scoring basketball, and h...

  11. Tournament preview: Atlantic 10

    Dana O'Neil

    Armageddon did not arrive. The end, as it turns out, is nowhere near. Conference realignment has come, team pillaging has gone, and the Atlantic 10 is still here and still fine, thank you very much. Just a year ago, teams gathered in Brooklyn f...

  12. Planning for Success: A deeper WCC

    Eamonn Brennan

    The West Coast Conference is that rarest of birds: The mid-major league that realignment made better. For a host of institutional and geographic reasons, Gonzaga was never tempted to realign upward these past few years. It's been a sturdy member t...

    Eamonn Brennan

    Just how powerful is conference realignment? In a sports world full of clumsy, inane analogies to armed conflict, the Border War -- the centurylong rivalry between Kansas and Missouri -- legitimately deserved its designation. The Jayhawks and Tige...

  16. Leagues hurt most by realignment

    Jeff Goodman

    Realignment. We all know it was football-driven, but it had plenty of impact on college hoops. The Big East, as we knew it, is gone. The American Athletic Conference was born from realignment and looks fairly strong -- for now. (Louisville will leave...
