Say Div I-A was starting completely from scratch in the way that they handled scheduling and post-season play. How would you like to see it handled? 6 BCS conferences? 2 National conferences with 4 subdivisions like in NFL? Polls? No Polls? Bowl Games? Playoff? Number of games in a season? Number of in conference games (assuming that you want conferences)? Would you keep everything how it is? etc.
My preference would be:
12 conferences, 10 teams per conference
8 in conference games, used for dynamic scheduling
OOC game, each team in a conference plays against a different confernce so that there cannot be two games between the same two conferences.
Rank teams in each conference by most wins, who beat whom. Teams ranked 1 and 2 in each conference play each other. Same for 3 and 4, 5 and 6, etc. If there is an odd number of teams, the last team is left out.
Repeat week 10.
Repeat week 12 with new results.
Bottom 8 conference champs play each other in wild cards. Higher ranked team gets home field. This is all determined by the 2 OOC games, which will give a strength of schedule/conference.
8 team play off
8 regularly scheduled games conference games
2 OOC games
2 weeks for dynamic conference games
4 weeks for national playoffs
2 bye weeks
Equates to 18 weeks, 12-16 games per team
Weeks 11 and 13 sort out 3-way ties
Weeks 10 and 12 are tie-breakers for seeding in playoffs
What would you guys like to see?
