    Welcome to the party ESPN!

    Today is the first day that I've seen ESPN actively reporting stories on conference realignment. And I just caught a few minutes of Chris and Matt talking about how bad ESPN has been covering this story.

    I guess pimping the World Cup, plugging the NBA Finals, and debating if Labron not having any input in the Cavs coaching search means he is leaving town finally got trumped by this minor, little story that could change the face of college athletics forever.

    My guess is they had a hard time finding enough facts to actually make it onto a show.

    I doubt they were wanting to report on total rumors.

    Theres been nothing to cover, just rumors and thats why the bloggers can run with it. It's still barely a blip nationally.
