Conference Realignment: Notre Dame, The Big 12 And The Superconference Era

Is there an end in sight to college conference realignment? There is not. Of course there isn't! There are certain milestones just down the road, however, which we can use to help figure out how extensively to stock the bunkers.

Two of them, as Spencer Hall and I discuss in the video below after an exhausting filming of this Friday's Shutdown Fullback, are this summer's revelation of college football's 2014 playoff plan and the point in 2015 at which Notre Dame's NBC contract expires. If the Irish don't already have a conference by then (and they could have one by, like, tomorrow), everything could completely change all over again. To the SEC they probably don't go!

Watch below, and tell us what you think about where everyone ends up, which conference is on top, who gets left out and whether this works out in Notre Dame's favor. (Notre Dame is important.)
