Go all ELITE man!

Elite Level

Independent: Notre Dame

PAC: Washington, Oregon, Arizona, California, Stanford, USC, UCLA

Big 9: Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma St, Texas, Texas A&M, Arkansas

B1G: Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan St, Ohio St, Penn St

ACC: Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina St, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida St, Miami

SEC: Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, LSU

As a B1G fan, if we're going strictly on football, Illinois hasn't been elite in years and as far as I know, Indiana has never been elite. I think the argument could be made that Northwestern has a better pedigree over the last 20 years than either of those two.

You could probably consider ASU, WVU, or Utah as well.

Aside from that, I like it.

I focused on flagships as well

If you want to do this sh--, then really cut the fat and go all out. 7 teams per P5 conference. 6 conference games and you play one school from each of the other 4 P5 conferences and one more random for 11 games. 5 Conference champ and 3 at large schools for National Playoffs. Go all ELITE man!

Tennessee has to be in there somewhere

After this past week: uh no. All kidding aside, probably should be. But all this talk about P5s and the talking heads and P5s should only schedule P5s, some folks gotta get dropped and there will be pain.

If you want to do this sh--, then really cut the fat and go all out. 7 teams per P5 conference. 6 conference games and you play one school from each of the other 4 P5 conferences and one more random for 11 games. 5 Conference champ and 3 at large schools for National Playoffs. Go all ELITE man!

I agree, don't think you went far enough, FIFY.

Ten Conference Games: 4 against your division, 1 Permanent Rival from each other division, 1 rotating game from each division

That way you play everyone in the conference every three years.

2 OOC games: 1 against each of the other two conferences per year.

ACC
East: Duke, NC State, North Carolina, Wake Forest
North: Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia
South: Florida, Florida State, Miami, South Florida
West: Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina

Big 16
East: Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse
North: Cincinnati, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State
South: Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern, Purdue
West: Iowa, Iowa State, Minnesota, Wisconsin

Pac-16
East: Houston, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech

West: California, Stanford, UCLA, USC

SEC
East: Kentucky, Louisville, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
North: Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska
South: Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi State, Ole Miss
West: Arkansas, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State

And here's a map!

Teams play a 9-game conference schedule: 3 games in division and 2 against each of the other 3 divisions. The interdivision pairings are for two seasons (home and home).

In each conference, the division champs face off in a two-round championship (1 vs. 4, 2 vs. 3). The conference champs receive automatic bids to the CFP. NY6 schedule is like so:

Year 1
Peach: ACC #1 vs. SEC #1
Rose: B16 #1 vs. P16 #1

Orange: At-Large vs. At-Large
Cotton: At-Large vs. At-Large
Fiesta: ACC #2 vs. P16 #2
Sugar: B16 #2 vs. SEC #2

Year 2
Peach: ACC #2 vs. SEC #2
Rose: B16 #2 vs. P16 #2
Orange: ACC #1 vs. B16 #1
Cotton: P16 #1 vs. SEC #1

Fiesta: At-Large vs. At-Large
Sugar: At-Large vs. At-Large

Year 3
Peach: At-Large vs. At-Large
Rose: At-Large vs. At-Large
Orange: ACC #2 vs. B16 #2
Cotton: P16 #2 vs. SEC #2
Fiesta: ACC #1 vs. P16 #1
Sugar: B16 #1 vs. SEC #1


Semifinals are in bold. In all years, at least one at-large team is from the G4/5/6.

People in Missouri and Arkansas, for example, aren't going to become Texas fans, they'll simply stop watching the D1 football and follow their team in whatever league they wind up in.

Well then, what really is the point of creating a so called "top tier" of Division I football?

Isn't that the so called "P5" now?

If you want to make a top tier, go big (small) or go home.
