We've been conspicuously low on the conference realignment talk around here; part of me wants to apologize for that, another part says, "You're welcome." Quite frankly, it's been an exhausting couple of days. The above link from Dr. Saturday is probably the most comprehensive survey of where things stand at the moment.

The conference expansion boom over the last 20 years eliminated all but a few independents in college football. Along with the rise of FBS vs. FCS games, it also had an impact on the frequency of games between top teams.

I understand when soccer teams with the ability to sign infinite young players snatch up prospects at this age, but with a finite number of scholarships available, offering a scholarship to a 13-year old quarterback seems impossibly speculative. Regardless, Lane Kiffin's locked up 13-year-old quarterback David Sills, from that football hotbed of Bear, Delaware.

Urban Meyer is apparently leaving the University of Florida because of some sort of health problems. Absolutely shocking.

Think every rumor you've read about who might be Notre Dame's next football coach is unsubstantiated speculation? At least one was created as a hoax just to see how far it could spread with a simple email and a tweet. No media outlet is spared in the ND blog Blue Gray Sky's detailed account.

Notre Dame message boards are abuzz with complaints about Notre Dame going so low as to schedule above-average MAC team Western Michigan next year.

SmartFootball's Chris Brown chips in on Dr. Saturday's college football blog with an excellent breakdown of the evolution of Virginia Tech's defense under long-time defensive coordinator Bud Foster.

Many have been assuming for quite a while that he's gone. I know that I assumed that, anyway. Returning to OU will probably make him a better quarterback long-term, as he'll learn how to handle pressure a lot better than he has to date (OU will have almost an entirely new offensive line protecting him), but it will also possibly make his draft stock drop a bit, as with new blockers and new receiving targets his overall his numbers will likely suffer.
Thoughts? Smart move on his part?

The league's northern divisions pose a number of meaty questions, such as: "Is the Bears' offense due for a repeat performance?" "Why do the Lions have such pronounced splits?" and "Has Johnny Manziel made the Cleveland brass even crazier?"
