    Can anyone sum up the confirmed conference moves in the NCAA?

    I'll be listening to the Hawaii game tonight and usually throw in NCAA football and play when listening. I'll probably be finishing a season tonight, and I'd like to update the conferences.

    I quit following the mega-thread when it pretty much became a spam thread.

    A&M to SEC is done.

    TCU to Big 12 immediately is done.

    Nevada, Fresno State and Hawaii are moving from WAC to MVC.

    Missouri to SEC is done with a slight chance they play in the Big 12 next season.

    WVU to Big 12 is done but not certain if they join immediately or in one or two years.

    Syracuse and Pitt are in the same position as WVU about moving to the ACC but it seems like they and the ACC are in less of a hurry since the ACC already has 12 teams.

    All the Big East additions are not confirmed yet, Boise State, AFA, Navy, Houston, SMU, UCF. The BYU to Big East rumor is probably the least concrete. Temple is in those rumors too.

    Personally I think it's totally stupid for those teams to join the Big East instead of just having the proposed MWC/CUSA championship game where the winner would usually be much better and more deserving of a national title game chance than any Big East winner.

    As far as I know UConn/Rutgers to ACC and Louisville to Big 12 is just wishful but practical thinking by lots of people.

    So was Boise State to the Big East just a rumor? I guess I thought that was confirmed.

    Edit: sorry, didn't see post above me before posting.

    It's a real invite, but it hasn't been confirmed or strongly denied if they've accepted or not. Unless I missed something.

    MWC, not MVC. MVC would be a step down since they are FCS.
