    If conferences realign, when do the teams...

    officially change conferences? Is this something that takes place in the next 1-2 years? Or, is it still 4-5 years down the road before they officially make their move? (assuming the teams except their respective conference changes within the next 1 month).

    If this needs to be merged with another thread, go ahead. I just couldn't decide which of the threads to put it in.

    2011 is the absolute earliest, and that would come with a stuff buy out by the university that decided to do that.

    I think I've heard the Big XII required a 2 year notice (??)

    Heard 2012 quite a bit.

    2012 eh?? Well, then isn't all of this conference realignment talk a moot point, since the world is ending at that time?

    I think I read Penn St. was admitted into the Big Ten in 1990, but their first year of football in the Big Ten was 1993.

    That is true, however the assumption is all that would be excused.

    well, technically we'll get through the regular college football season but miss the bowl games - the world is ending on Dec 21, 2012.

    Does this include people on non-BCS planets/galaxies/solar systems?

    Hopefully we go 6-6 in 2012 and land one of those early bowls, so I can squeeze in one last vacation.

    Re: If conferences realign, when do the teams...

    I think the best example would be to look at the ACC when they expanded. I'm too lazy to do that, so I'll let someone else.

    Quote from wikipedia on the ACC expansion:

    "But in mid-October 2003, the ACC voted unanimously to invite BC to be its twelfth member, although because of timing issues BC was not able to compete in the ACC until the 2005-2006 season."

    2003 the talks were finalized. Miami and Virginia Tech officially joined the ACC on July 1, 2004. Boston College joined on July 1, 2005.

    When the first current rumors started swirling and teams such as Syracuse and Rutgers were mentioned to join the Big 10, it was mentioned on the Dan Patrick Show that members from the Big East must give 24-27 month notice to the Big East that they are leaving the conference.

    So to answer the question, for the most part, realigned/expanded conferences will begin play in their new conference 2-3 years after the talks are finalized.

    That's true.. I'm also mad that we can't squeeze in one more Christmas as well!
    Or, a championship in basketball, because FH is bound to have us in the hunt by that time!
