Where's Penn State?

I don't know if they would have gone for BC. Granted, ND is not AAU either, but they bring enough to the table for the conference to overlook that.

RE: Superconference Scenarios
I never believed three divisions could ever work. I said: "there just aren't enough potential games left to hold more postseason match-ups to include a conference semi-final."

Well, maybe it can work. For three divisions to work: three division champs plus a wildcard, and that's an extra game on top of 12 regular season, plus bowl and a possible CCG. It can only work without expanding the playoffs. Logistically, I'm not opposed to it, because you could have uneven divisions:

ACC

Yankee
BC
Syracuse
Pitt
Louisville

Tobacco
UVA
VT
UNC
NC State
Duke
Wake

Magnolia
Clemson
GT
FSU
Miami

Every school plays their division (plus however many opponents it takes to get to eight) and I think they could get around the rule. Semis on campus, or wherever the school designates their home field. Finals are held in Charlotte or wherever. No need to add a bunch more schools to make this happen. The Big XII is onto something, let's take it to the next level.

* Ignore the division names. I was feeling nostalgic and named the divisions like old bowl games.

RE: Superconference Scenarios
I start out by creating a super SEC, with four divisions:

Northeast: Boston College, Syracuse, Pitt, West Virginia, Louisville, Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Miami

Atlantic Coast: Duke, North Carolina, NC State, Wake Forest, Clemson, South Carolina, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Florida

Southeast: Florida State, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU and Arkansas

Southwest: Missouri, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, TCU and Baylor

I would determine the conference champion by a tournament as follows:

The four division winners are seeded #1-4, using some existing agreed upon metric. The second place finishers in each division are seeded #5-8. Using that same metric, the eight best teams are chosen from among the remaining 28 teams plus Notre Dame, (which is a member for all other sports) and seeded #9-16.

Seeds 1-8 host seeds 9-16 in the usual format in the week after Thanksgiving. The following week, the four highest seed winners host the other four winners. These quarterfinal winners will go on to play in the semifinals on or around New Years day at the Peach Bowl and Cotton Bowl, with the finals to be held on a rotating basis at the Sugar, Orange and Fiesta Bowls. The 3 Finals sites continue to stage their annual New Year's Bowl games, with at least one invitee to come from the SEC Superconference.

I don't care how the remaining 93 FBS schools are organized.

Seems Rutgers was always on the B1G radar though.

If the B1G had picked up the rest of the old Big East northeastern schools, I wonder if they would've had a chance at Notre Dame? They also should've picked up Missouri.

No.

The concept of four super-conferences is dying if not dead already.

You're correct, it may only be 3 or even 2 in the end.

........and it could stay at 5 for a while.
But in the end we will have two leagues that are made up of a couple of divisions that could have two or three conferences each.

Smaller units will provide more inventory.

Sure, but "wasted time" describes all discussions on any discussion board.

Agreed. Nothing on this board really means anything. Everything but statements from schools, conferences, the NCAA, or any official person is creative conjecture. It’s all a waste of time if that statement is true.
