I just wonder, who would be in your conference. I am just summer bored and waiting for 2017 college football season to start. I will go first:

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

Tennessee
North Carolina
Clemson
Georgia
Florida
Florida State
Alabama
Louisiana State

Since you didn't include Cincy and my alma mater is actually Ohio State I can assure you 99.99% of "that our" fan base has "zero zilch nada" interest in playing against your plebian school. Now please include one of your biggest rivals next time.

In Wilkie's defense, he just posted how most Louisville fans feel now. It's no offense intended, it's hard to consider our programs rivals when we don't compete against each other any longer.

Louisville is in the same situation with its new conference. No real rivals because of a lack of history with anyone. Given time some things will naturally occur until then you just play the games.

Give me UVA, WVU, Pitt, Penn St, Maryland, Duke, UNC, NC State, Wake Forest, S Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, Ga Tech, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisville, Cincinnati and Ohio State.

Thats 19 teams.

TRUE. Reluctantly I'll toss out Duke, Wake and Cincinnati. That leaves 16 (including VT).

RE: If you could create your dream conference for football
I could make the Power four look into a NFL like League with each four conferences have schools from all the states representative.

PAC 12
Big 10
ACC
SEC

Alabama
Auburn
Troy/South Alabama
North Alabama

UAB is not listed because they are too close to Alabama, and the Tide will have a fit if they get picked. Samford, Alabama A&M and Alabama State do have their issues. Jacksonville State is close to Auburn which could be a problem.
South Alabama and North Alabama would be safe bets because they are not close to the two big schools.

Arkansas
Arkansas State
Arkansas Tech
UCA

Arizona
Arizona State
Northern Arizona
Arizona Western

California
Stanford
UCLA
USC
San Diego State
Fresno State
Sacramento State
Cal-Davis
Cal. Poly
Azusa Pacific

California could be the state that could fill in for states that do not have more than 1 or 2 schools with football on the west coast.

Colorado
Colorado State
Air Force
Colorado Mesa
Colorado State-Pueblo
Northern Colorado
Colorado Mines

Colorado could do the same.

UConn.
Central Connecticut State
New Haven/Coast Guard (brings them back into the President's Cup)/Southern Conn. State
Sacred Heart

Delaware
Delaware State

Florida
Florida State
Miami
UCF
USF
North Florida

Nebraska

Nevada
UNLV

New Hampshire

Rutgers
Rowan
Monmouth

New Mexico
New Mexico State
New Mexico Highlands
Eastern New Mexico (Eastern New Mexico fans do flock to West Texas A&M to have big sell out games. It could be done the same for them to flock to UTEP, New Mexico, New Mexico State, and New Mexico Highlands. They might flock to Arizona and Texas schools as well.)

Fordham
Syracuse
Buffalo
Albany
Stony Brook
Cortland State

North Carolina
NC State

Richmond
Old Dominion
James Madison

Washington State
Washington
Eastern Washington
Central Washington

West Virginia
Marshall

Big 10 will be AAU Conference.
ACC could be all privates. That means Northwestern and Purdue over there.
PAC 12 could be Schools like Boise State, Washington State and Oregon State.
SEC could be schools like Oklahoma, Kansas State and some others.




Big 10 could look like this.

I will never understand why you want every university or college that has ever existed to be DI/FBS. Lindenwood? Davenport? Azusa Pacific? UNC Pembroke? Wisconsin-Eau Claire? I mean, why?

Speaking solely for UNCP, you won't find a person in North Carolina that considers them to be a premier institution in the state or region. There has even been conversation before about closing it down. Why would you bring an underwhelming school of 6,000 students up if they are struggling in DII?
