Of course there are alliances, as I indicated in my post


and one competition in one discipline is indeed quite different from a conference (or even an academic alliance really) where full slates of competitions are held across many different disciplines (sports) within the same group of schools...conferences also do things like share revenue, create media networks, etc

Dairy Science going the PA All-American Dairy Show is like VT Basketball playing in the 2K classic, not like VT being in the ACC

and, again, there's zero need for schools to "start deciding" anything about "academic conferences"...they can and do associate with whomever they like, whether for a competition or a long-term research relationship, independent of athletic conference membership
