Exclamation If you could create your dream conference for football
If you could create your dream conference for football what would it look like? There is no right or wrong answer to this. It is not an argument post here. 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

04-cheers

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.

Boston College

Appalachian State

Georgia Tech
Auburn
UCF
Vanderbilt
LSU
Texas

Basically, a combination of cool cities to visit and some great college-town atmospheres. I'd probably want to make every road trip for us every year. So maybe a bad idea, because I'd blow my budget on travel.

TN
Florida
Georgia
South Carolina
Vandy
KY
Virginia Tech
UVA
FSU
Clemson
UNC
Duke
Alabama
Auburn
Miss St
Ole Miss
LSU
Arkansas
Texas A&M
OK
Kansas

The current SEC + VT, UVA, FSU, Clemson, UNC, Duke, OK, Kansas, minus Missouri. (Nothing against Missouri at all!)

Three divisions of 7.
Play 5, rotate the other 15 h/a every 6 years.

You've got great football still, and you've added Kansas, UNC, Duke, UVA to KY for basketball. You've also added 4 new AAU schools, and it is still a regional conference.

Just add Texas and ND to the current ACC as full members and I would be thrilled.

Georgia Tech


TV contracts considered
9 game conference schedule in football. 3 division 2 in each other division rotate every year. Play everyone home and away every 4 years. 18 game basketball schedule - home and away in division, 1 game each vs. other division teams.

North

I think we had a similar thread pretty recently.

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

Idea I've been toying with as a SWC but with more punch and desireability:

Texas A&M
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.
