    I hope a chunk of it is already on its way to Greensboro.

    And soon -- I don't know that UC football can sustain fan interest in a city like Cincinnati if they're bringing in nobody programs like Tulane, SMU, ECU and Memphis every week.

    As opposed to powerhouses like Syracuse and Rutgers?

    The biggest obstacle is going to maintaining fan interest is going to be the lack of an automatic BCS-bowl berth for the conference champion, it's going to be hard to convince people you're big time when you don't have access to any of the major bowl games.

    And, just like that, realignment is effectively over:

    Sorry, but I'm not buying that realignment is over. Over for UC? Might be the case. It's not over though.

    It would be over at the highest levels for a while if the ACC GoR deal is true. The Big XII and ACC were the only poachable conferences (with teams anyone wanted), and if they are off limits, that's pretty much it. Now, the Big XII may still want to get to 12, so that could keep UC, USF, BYU, Boise and UConn in play to some extent, but that's pretty minor stuff in the landscape (though not minor to those particular schools, of course).

    Big XII needs to go to 12 if they want a championship game unless the BCS schools successfully ditch NCAA governance.

    Or get an NCAA rule change. Either way, the conference championship game isn't profitable enough by itself to justify dividing the pot 12 ways instead of 10. They needed to be able to pry away schools like FSU, Miami, Clemson, maybe BYU to make it worth the trouble. And if the dollars don't justify it, they don't have to expand.

    I do think there was a period last summer when the playoff rules were being hashed out when those ACC schools and the Big 12 office were on each others' speed dial. There was a possibility that conferences would have to have 12 teams and a CCG to have preferred seating, so to speak. But in the end, it wasn't a requirement, just like Notre Dame discovered it wouldn't be forced to join a league to have access to the playoff. That took away a lot of expansion momentum. Now, it's back to being only about money again.

    I never thought I'd see the day that a Golic played football someplace other than Notre Dame but here you have it:

    Jake Golic, a TE, will play for UC this year. Apparently if you've already graduated, you don't have to sit out a year. I don't know if this means Gunner Kiel has the inside track on the starting QB job or not

    Kiel has to sit out, though, right? So he and Golic will not play (in games) together.

    You're absolutely right. Thanks for the clarification:

    Kiel would have to sit out the 2013 season as a transfer and would become eligible at UC in 2014. Cincinnati will lose its top two quarterbacks, seniors Brendon Kay and Munchie Legaux, following the 2013 season
    Any work with Gunner Kiel will be limited to the practice field

    Golic received a degree at ND in industrial design, and he'll pursue a graduate degree in the same field at UC. UC's industrial design program is one of the best in the country, and I suspect that was a big factor in his decision as well.
