McLaughlin: Irish a Big Domino in Conference Realignment

Spencer evaluates a seemingly always-evolving media/realignment landscape in College Football

Notre Dame Football remains an independent team, despite years of conferences openly stating their desire to add the Fighting Irish’s football program.

Their desirability isn’t going away for leagues like the Big 10 and ACC any time soon.

That could have ripple effects for the Pac-12 On today’s episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin evaluates a seemingly always-evolving media/realignment landscape in College Football.

Adding schools like San Diego State and SMU from the G5 level aren’t the moves the Pac-12 would necessarily like to make as a “big splash,” but in 2023 it’s essentially all they’re left with.

Also, Deion Sanders has energized the Colorado Football program like never before and his big personality is a big reason why.

Is he truly a one-of-a-kind coach in College Football in that sense?
