If given the choice, the Huskies would want to be in the Big 12 in all sports. But the chances that offer ever comes is still too hard to predict now.

Notre Dame in the B1G? Boise State in the Pac-12? This is what realignment and expansion should look like, even if it can't. Plus, an epic commitment and more of the best of the week in CFB.
