Big East Conference Expansion Into West Reveals Real Motivation Behind College Football Realignment

The conference realignments taking over college football have never been about the product on the field or "making the regular season matter."

Since graduating from Seton Hall University, Will O'Toole has been doing cartoons for over 30 years for a number of papers (USA Today), magazines (College and Pro Football Weekly) and websites (CBSSportsline.com). He is believed to be the only national cartoonist to have voted for the Heisman Trophy and the Wooden and Naismith Awards.
