Alright, now that the Super Bowl is over, time for more college realignment news.
The University of Memphis, the flagship institution of the Tennessee Board of Regents, announced that they will be leaving Conference USA for the Big East Conference in 2013, joining Boise State, San Diego State, Central Florida, Southern Methodist, and Houston. Navy, as stated earlier, will join in 2015.
What does this mean for the Liberty Bowl? Do they lose their C-USA tie-in? Where will the C-USA champion go? The New Orleans Bowl is a possibility.
And of course, Memphis hasn't fielded a decent football team in years. Basketball is what makes all the money. But then again, this is a football thread, not a basketball thread.
