College football seems to have settled down following the recent run of realignment that featured expansion in each of the Power Five conferences and caused a cascading series of moves elsewhere. Sure, rumors bubble under the surface as they seemingly always do, but with current television contracts in place for the major leagues into the next decade, realignment appears to have found its way to the backburner. It doesn't have to stay there forever, though.
The Big 12 raised eyebrows with its will-they-or-won't-they expansion process which ended with the league standing pat. That served as a stark reminder: Expansion can still happen and, in five particular cases, it should.
This could be a significant move for the Boise State Broncos and give them an adrenal switch . Joining the Pac-12 would make sense geographically. You'd be in a conference with teams in Washington, Oregon, Utah, California, Colorado, and Arizona--all very easy to travel to.
