If there is one thing the great conference re-alignment boon of 2010 has taught us, it is that the things we used to consider important to the integrity of a conference no longer apply. Geography, for instance, used to be considered perhaps the most important aspect of a conference's identity. Following the PAC-10's failed attempt at adding Texas and most of the rest of the Big 12 South, however, it is clear that geography is no longer a real consideration for how a conference is built. With the old ideals of what makes a conference a conference going out the window, I figured it is time to shuffle the proverbial deck of college football in the hopes of creating a new landscape boasting super conferences aligned for competitive reasons, not geography. Dive right in after the jump.

If you haven't read Adrian Wojnarowski's piece on LeBron's departure from Cleveland, I recommend that you do so. Most of the information in it is stuff you probably already know if you've been paying attention, and it isn't especially well-written (it almost seems as if each paragraph was copied and pasted directly from the author's notebook with little regard for how each little tidbit fits into the larger frame of the article), but it perfectly illustrates two things: Wojnarowski hates LeBron, and Cleveland should be eternally grateful for Brian Windhorst.

Apparently, LeBron James is going to use his one hour prime-time special tonight to announce he is joining Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami (which I kind of doubt, but I will get to that at the end of this little excercise). While this is extremely disappointing for Cavs fans, I am too tired right now to properly gauge the emotional weight of this decision. Instead, I am just going to do a grab bag list of random topics related to this stunning news.
