What is wrong with college sports? Why is everyone changing conferences?

It looks like there's about to be about 15 teams in the Big TEN. The Atlantic-10 has 16 teams. The ACC is adding Louisville (they aren't even on the Atlantic coast!)
Why is this happening? I know. Its about money. But, specifically, how is it about money? TV rights? I don't remember a time in recent history when the conferences got shook up so much.
While I'm guessing this isn't as complicated as concisely explaining "Obamacare" I feel like it could be. Any MeFites think they can concisely explain this?
