Syracuse
Ohio State
Michigan
Notre Dame
Penn State
West Virginia
Virginia Tech
Louisville

Tennessee
North Carolina
Clemson
Georgia
Florida
Florida State
Alabama
Louisiana State

04-cheers

You let a little basketball bias creep in there. Woof......Syracuse?

I think we had a similar thread pretty recently.

UA's would be everybody we currently have minus A&M and Mizzou.

UT-Austin
SMU
TCU
Arkansas
Ole Miss
LSU
Tulane
Oklahoma
Nebraska

RE: If you could create your dream conference for football
This is a G5 one....

MAC-8
Kent State
Ohio
Toledo
Miami
Ball State
C. Michigan
W. Michigan
N. Illinois

8 team G5 conference to maximize.

-CFP revenue, split bowl pool $$$ 8 ways.
-NCAA tournament bids, split the pie less ways.
-TV deal money split.
-Easier for 1 really good team to dominate and bring up the conference.
-Less bowl slots needed so can go higher quality per slot.
-Less conference games, more flexibility to schedule P5's at home.

RE: If you could create your dream conference for football
Aside from us magically attracting another 50K fans a game to put us within range of the Big Ten, I'll say a modified MAC.

North:
Buffalo
NIU
Akron
Toledo
CMU
WMU

South:
Miami
Cincinnati
Ohio
Marshall
WKU
Ball State

We'd still play eight-game conference schedules with the MACC in Detroit, but restrict MACtion so no one plays on a weeknight unless they get on ESPNU or CBS Sports at the minimum. Bowls would be in Detroit (Big Ten), Mobile (Sun Belt), Poinsettia (MWC), Boca Raton (C-USA), and a new one in Indianapolis (AAC), with secondary tie-ins in Frisco and the Bahamas.
