First of all, he’s right about that. Second of all, nice of him to modestly point out that his is a good idea.
Silliest realignment I’ve ever seen suggested.

Conference realignment of this scale is hard to pull off because so many schools have to agree to avoid paying exit fees. No CUSA school is swimming in cash right now. Plus the new conference may not be guaranteed an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
He’s half right. There is virtually no chance of this happening but it is not a good idea.
