East: Houston, Memphis, Cincinnati, Temple, Connecticut, East Carolina, Central Florida, South Florida, Navy
West: San Diego St, Fresno St, Boise St, BYU, UNLV, Wyoming, Colorado St, Air Force, New Mexico

If BYU says no, then Tulsa.

I kept out Hawaii, San Jose St, Nevada, and Utah St from the Mountain West and Tulsa, SMU, and Tulane from the American to keep a strict East/West alignment.

I don't think BYU would do it. I think they're holding out hope for P5 invite, and if not then they like to think that being an Indy is a half-step above G5.

Would probably cut out Wyoming and BYU, replace with Houston and SMU in the West. Then in East add Army, to bring all service academies under one banner ... plus you never know, maybe one day Army will become as competitive as Navy and Air Force.

Schools with special deals.
Boise State ESPN
BYU ESPN
Air Force CBS Sports/Armed Forces Network
Army CBS Sports/Armed Forces Network
Navy CBS Sports/Armed Forces Network
Grambling State NBC
Southern U. NBC
North Dakota State ESPN

PAC 12, Big 10, SEC, ACC and longhorns Networks all could have filler games during football season.

I do not see many schools to be able to pull this off.

BYU
Army
UMass.

Who might be able to do this and be filler games for certain ESPN, SEC, ACC networks and Longhorns?

Eastern Washington
Montana
North Dakota State
South Dakota State
Northern Iowa
McNeese State
Sam Houston State
West Texas A&M (Longhorn Network and play New Mexico, New Mexico State, UTEP, Texas Tech, Arizona, Arizona State, UTSA, Texas State, Air Force, Colorado State, SMU, North Texas and so forth)
Missouri State SEC and Longhorn Network
Wichita State SEC and Longhorns for if they add football.
Youngstown State ACC, AAC and SEC Youngstown could get a deal to be on the ACC Network because they have beaten Pittsburgh and played exciting games against them.
Jacksonville State as an SEC filler games. They do schedule SEC schools so they still be on the Network anyways.
West Florida same as Jacksonville State.
Chattanooga SEC Network. A lot of schools in the area to play like Middle Tennessee State, Western Kentucky, Kentucky, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Memphis, Ole Miss, Miss. State, Arkansas, Arkansas State, Southern Miss., Alabama, Auburn, North Alabama, Jacksonville State, the Carolinas, Georgia, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Georgia southern.
Towson could get it done with all the schools close by.
Delaware could also do it. CAA schools could be filler games on the ACC network. New Hampshire, Villanova, William and Mary, Richmond, Stony Brook, Albany, Maine and so forth already seemed to have an agreement to play ACC schools every year to the dismay of the CAA schools upsetting the ACC schools every year.
UTEP might be able to do this. They could play MWC, Big 12 and PAC 12 schools including New Mexico.
Houston could do it on their own.
UCF, East Carolina, Cincinnati, USF, Navy and Memphis could be able to do that.
Marshall, Southern Miss., Rice, Middle Tennessee State and Western Kentucky could do it.
Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, Kennesaw State, and so forth could work.
Toledo, Bowling Green, Northern Illinois, Western Michigan and Ohio could work out as well. Since these Networks for conferences would be tired out because why repeat games over and over again on off days? It could bring some of these Networks into new states without giving a full invite. Just make a deal with certain schools in your area in neighboring states to bring content to those states. It would be a coup for ESPN to have MWC, Big Sky, MVFC, Lone Star, GNAC, MAC, SBC, CAA, AAC, C-USA, Southern and many other conferences with large schools to be on their three main networks for the SEC, Longhorn and ACC Networks. You could get a coast to coast games on all three. I think would somebody on the east coast watch a great Azusa Pacific game on the SEC Network on a Thursday night game? Or a undefeated Colorado Mesa or Colorado State-Pueblo on a Thursday night game on the Longhorns Network? It could give some of these schools some exposure, and may help sell more tickets to these teams. We really do not give enough credit to the schools in the lower levels for how they do on the field enough. Exposing them in a large spotlight might help ESPN in a long run to sell these Networks, and to help these schools out big time. Minn-Duluth, Mankato State and St. Cloud State football on an ESPN Network could be cool as well. Spread the love around in case if the FBS does expand to add new conferences and schools? We could see these top D2 schools that do get some money make a move to D1 with the help from paychecks from these Networks as well.

Put Rice, UTSA, UTEP, Marshall, Toledo and some others in a better conference, and have them faced some of the Big names? They could get over 30,000. UTSA had more than 30,000 in the Alamo Dome when they had P5 schools played against them there. UTSA is the one to watched for that is on the rise.

The MWC isn't 8-9 deep.. Maybe 3-4.

San Jose St is a definite no, but Wyoming and Nevada are Flagships. Hawaii is a flagship but a million miles away. Utah St is kind of a second fiddle in their state. So I see at least 7 plus BYU as being a good group of schools. The others are all solid: Boise, Air Force, San Diego St, New Mexico, Colorado St, UNLV and Fresno I'd take in a heartbeat.
