Throughout the history of collegiate athletics there have been instances of schools moving from one conference to another, only to return to their original conference shortly thereafter. This had not happened in the recent wave of conference realignment, but that changed on Thursday as Oral Roberts announced that it will return to the Summit League…

All month long, CBT will be rolling out our 2013-2014 season preview. To browse through the preview posts we’ve already published, click here. The Atlantic 10 Conference saw a record five teams play in the NCAA tournament in 2013, with every single team advancing to at least the Round of 32. That was before conference realignment struck…

We’ve seen it happen before in this current era of conference realignment. A school announces its decision to switch conferences, and the reactions from their current conference range from sadness and disappointment to outright anger. What those moves also do is open the door for programs to re-evaluate their relationships, and such is the case…

Many likely remember the drama surrounding the meetings between old rivals Georgetown and Syracuse this past season, with all the dramatics surrounding it being “the last time these two will play” as members of the Big East. Well it seems as if the two programs are close to agreeing to a ten-year contract, with Syracuse…

The general consensus around the country had been that conference realignment came to a halt when the ACC signed their Grant of Media Rights earlier this summer. And, when it comes to the five power conferences, that much is probably true. The Big 12 and the ACC have signed Grant of Media Rights deals, and…

BYU hoops heads to the West Coast Conference in 2011. And Mark Few couldn’t be happier about it. “It’s great for our league,” Few told FoxSports.com’s Jeff Goodman. “Anytime you can bring in someone to enhance the profile of your league, that’s a good thing.” “BYU’s been in the top 25 the last four or…

Gonzaga, you’ve got company. BYU’s declaring its football independence, leaving the rest of its sports – including the rising men’s basketball program – to participate in the West Coast Conference starting with the 2011-12 season. A press conference will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET. I previously spelled out some of the reasons why…

Well BYU? What’ll it be? Will the push for football independence win out – and Mountain West dissatisfaction – prevail? Or will the Cougars settle for another conference, or possibly start their own? That Wednesday deadline to decide is approaching fast… This Salt Lake Tribune story says BYU wants that football independence more than anything,…

BYU basketball could have a memorable season. Not only are the Cougars – behind Player of the Year candidate Jimmer Fredette – poised for yet another 25-win season and possibly a deep NCAA tournament run, it could be their last chance to do so as part of the Mountain West. Kenny Crookston/AP Or any conference,…

BYU’s down to less than a week to decide its athletic future: Stay with the Mountain West or go the independent route in football and join the WAC for everything else, including college hoops. If a report in the Denver Post is right, the Cougars are staying in the MWC – and they could announce…

Here’s a thought to chew on: Texas held all the cards in the Big 12-Pac-10 drama, but BYU’s desire for football independence could spell the end of three conferences. Who knew the Cougars had that kind of influence? OK, so influence is slightly overblown. Call them a domino. So let’s recap how this began last…

Someone wasn’t happy with the conference realignment results. And that someone was BYU. While the Pac-10 scooped up in-state rival Utah, the Cougars remained the Mountain West Conference (which some think BYU disdains) with their smaller TV deal and no guarantee at a BCS bowl. And now they’re thinking about going it alone. According to…

As the Big 12 continues to iron out the kinks of its new 10-team conference (and presumably adjust the name), there’s still a sense of foreboding among the schools, particularly the five who almost were left behind: Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Baylor and Missouri.

Who says these are the slow summer months? With news regarding Tom Izzo, conference realignment and the USC fallout, there’s hardly a lack of blog-worthy material. But can we pause a moment to consider the World Cup? Randomly, it seems many college hoops writers and bloggers (Grant Wahl, Mike DeCourcy, Andy Glockner, Jonathan Tannenwald, Jeff…
