Currently all over the news is the potential for the big 12 to expand and add 2 teams to actually have 12 members again. There is plenty of talk of the other conferences expanding, contracting, moving teams etc… I for one am sick of it and wish they could get a nice, even, fair system to crown an NCAA champion. Here is the idea SDB came up with.
|WSC – North||CSC – North||SSC – West||NSC – West|
|2||Oregon State||Iowa||LSU||Michigan State|
|3||Washington||Iowa State||Arkansas||Notre Dame|
|5||Boise State||Kansas State||Tennessee||Wisconsin|
|10||UNLV||Colorado State||Vanderbilt||Northern Illinois|
|WSC – South||CSC – South||SSC – East||NSC – East|
|2||USC||Texas A&M||Florida State||Penn State|
|3||Cal||Texas Tech||Miami||Boston College|
|6||Arizona State||Houston||North Carolina||Pittsburgh|
|8||Fresno State||Oklahoma||Georgia Tech||Virginia Tech|
|9||San Diego State||Oklahoma State||Wake Forrest||Connecticut|
|10||San Jose State||New Mexico ST||Duke||Maryland|
Western States Conf., Central States Conf., Southern States Conf., Northern States Conf.
This just seems too easy to me. I’m sick of the conf. bickering, and shuffling. This fixes college football, and makes it watchable for guys like me who desire a game similar to pros, & a fair, workable playoff format. The current conferences are what ruin college football. The elitism displayed by the current conferences holds them back. If the NCAA could make this happen, it would be for the best. It could preserve the traditions, and make way for a clear champion.
4, 20 team super Conferences. Each conference divided in 2 divisions. Each season a team plays 9 games vs. their division members, and a rotating schedule against 5 of the other division making a 14 game regular season. No more cupcakes, or out of division games. Each Conference would have a conference Championship game to crown a winner. The 8 conference champions would then be in a playoff for a national champion. 64 teams would play a 14 game season, 8 teams would play 15 games, 4 teams would play 16 games, and 2 teams would play 17 games. 17 games are allot for a college kid, but still less than a pro team, and the best college team should be able to handle 17 games to win it all. Bowls can be preserved for all 76 teams not included in playoffs. I know there are many faults, and this will never happen. It’s fun to imagine though.
