My first thread so please be gentle.
A co-worker and I hashed this out over 15 minutes so it's obviously not perfect.
I'm less concerned with which schools go where. I put more thought into what the overall layout was and how champions were determined. I think the idea of 4 super conferences is great with the division winners playing as a first round to an 8-team playoff. Each conference has 16 teams and they are linked to a "minor league" conference that makes sense geographically. So the Big Ten would have the MAC as their minor league. The worst team in the Big Ten gets demoted down to the MAC and the MAC champs get promoted up at the end of the season. This is what they do with professional soccer and I think the system works brilliantly. Now you give the UCF's of the world a chance to compete, but it needs to be sustained performance over a couple seasons. Also, bye bye Rutgers. They won't even be able to compete in the MAC. PAC 12, SEC, and ACC all do the same.
What did I miss?
