While conference realignment is by and large a product of college football, the effect on college basketball has been no less dramatic. As new, tweaked conferences are born, storied rivalries go out the window. Say goodbye to Duke vs. Maryland, as the Terps head to the Big Ten.

The conference will look drastically different without the likes of Syracuse, Pittsburgh and West Virginia, to name a few. Even the actual name of the conference could change with addition of teams not located near or along the eastern seaboard.
Still, new rivalries will undoubtedly emerge, and hopefully teams with traditional matchups will continue to play in the non-conference portion of their schedules.
