Do you keep the Atlantic and Coastal? 4 team pods?

Depends on who is available at the time, and how much influence ND would have in who their +1 would be.

Pods are a message board thing. Leagues with 12+ teams have to be in 2 divisions if you want to play a CCG.

The trouble with 2 divisions of 8 is that it means only playing 1 cross division game a year with an 8 game conference schedule. ND and the schools with rivals in the SEC will never approve going to 9.

Pods allow schools to play their chief rivals annually while still getting to face the rest of the league with some regularity.

It makes no sense.

How can you do stuff like this or post all the ridiculous rumors everyone’s heard from their “sources” and then you get mad at Miko for making fun of it? It needs to be made fun of because it’s completely ridiculous.

Disagree completely, it’s a lot of fun to think of hypothetical conferences. I only get annoyed when people pretend that they have some inside knowledge when they clearly don’t.

If you're going to pull WVU, Tenn, SC, UGA and Florida, why stop there? Give me Penn State, Ohio State and Auburn, too! May as well toss out Duke while you're at it - no room for small schools in this league!

Pods are a message board thing. Leagues with 12+ teams have to be in 2 divisions if you want to play a CCG.

You can have both pods and divisions. Assuming four pods, pair any two pods up together for two years and call it a division to play each school home/home in those two years and the winner of the division plays the winner of the other division in the conference championship game. Then after the two years, the pairs of pods rotate. Something like this:

Years 1, 2: Division X is Pods A and B; Division Y is Pods C and D.
Years 3, 4: Division X is Pods A and C; Division Y is Pods B and D.
Years 5, 6: Division X is Pods A and D; Division Y is Pods B and C.

You could rotate pod pairs annually so that each athlete will play each school at least once in three years. If four schools are in a pod, that makes seven divisional games and allows for a permanent rival in each of the other pods if there are nine conference games.

You would get something akin to the old Metro Conference as Raycom imagined it. I'll add that organizing a conference by media market alone is not very smart.
