|2 years 7 weeks ago||An idea from the NFL||
It would be interesting if instead of protected rivals they did like the NFL does:
You play the two teams that finished in the same place in the pod the previous year. So if you win your pod, the next year you play your seven divisional games and then the previous years winners of the other two pods.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Pods suggestion||
I like the pods idea.
However, I think that M and OSU need to be in the same pod, for the same arguments this site as made for keeping them in the same division. I would essentially switch OSU and ND.
Pod A Pod B Pod C Pod D
Minnesota Michigan Notre Dame East 1
Wisconsin MSU Northwestern East 2
Iowa OSU Illinois PSU
Nebraska Indiana Purdue East 3
The horizontal groupings are the teams that would play every year, even if the pods are not paired as divisions.
