When you have to resort to naming your divisions leaders and legends, you've already jumped the shark IMHO.
Given some of the nonsensical geographical atrocities that seem to be about to happen, maybe conferences should be named after famous clowns.
The draw of college football to me is the tradition and a huge part of that is the rivalries many of which are primarily driven by geography.
How the heck does the NCAA sell Boise St vs Rutgers? This realignment stuff is really making it very hard for me to pretend that college football really is still more pagentry than paycheck.
