To be fair, it did specify Go5 schools, and with the Go5 locked out of the CFP, it's Go5 off-season once the Go5 Access Bowl has finished being played.

Lessee: Kent State should be in a conference with Akron, OhioU, Toledo and Bowling Green ... Buffalo, that's too close to forget and their team this year is making sure they are NOT forgotten ... MiamiU is a really good University, and they are kind of a package deal with OhioU ... going further afield the very best Go5 get in BBall may be UConn, after that UC, and then Temple ... Army would be nice ... there are some Go5 schools in Michigan that would be good gets, so get two or three of those ... not a lot of Go5 schools in Indiana or Illinois, but if there are some of those available, take those as well.

Could call it the "Great Northeast Conference" if we Americans didn't pretend that states 1/6 of the way from the Atlantic and 5/6 of the way from the Pacific were "Midwest" ...

OK:
Kent, Akron, Bowling Green, Toledo, OhioU, MiamiU, UC, Buffalo, Army (maybe FB only), UConn, Temple, a couple of Michigan schools and the odd Indiana or Illinois school, say CMU, WMU, Ball State, Northern Illinois.

Lessee, Divisions:
East have to include Army, UConn, Temple and Buffalo
West have to include Northern Illinois, Ball State, WMU, CMU

Add Kent State / Akron to the East, Toledo / Bowling Green to the West

East: Army, UConn, Temple, Buffalo, Kent State, Akron
West: Northern Illinois, Ball State, WMU, CMU, Toledo, Bowling Green

So I guess the BotB schools in the East and UC in the West:

East: Army, UConn, Temple, Buffalo, Kent State, Akron, OhioU, MiamiU
West: Northern Illinois, Ball State, WMU, CMU, Toledo, Bowling Green, UC

Need an 8th team to round out the Western Division. Marshall is nearby, but they aren't a good institutional fit. NDSU would be a great fit if they could move to eastern Wisconsin. Lessee, there's EMU, they've been going bowling recently.

Also, if Army is FB only, would like to balance the divisions out for BBall ... Dayton would be nice as an Olympic-Sports member.

East: Army/Dayton, UConn, Temple, Buffalo, Kent State, Akron, OhioU, MiamiU
West: Northern Illinois, Ball State, WMU, CMU, EMU, Toledo, Bowling Green, UC

RE: Build a dream conference for your school out of G5 teams
The idea with this one is to be a fun league for basketball with relatively even budgets across schools.

Ohio
Marshall
Western Kentucky
Middle Tennessee
UAB
Georgia State
Charlotte
Old Dominion
Florida Atlantic

If it was permitted I'd add in Dayton/VCU to go to 11 in basketball with the idea it would be a 2-3 NCAA bid league.

5/6 of the way to the Pacific?

FROM. Not TO. 5/6 of the way TO the Pacific would be 1/6 of the way FROM the Pacific.

Or are you are claiming that Ohio is closer than 5/6 of the way across the country from the Pacific Ocean? I don't know if it's precisely that, let me ask Google:

Kent, Ohio to San Francisco: 2,480 miles
Kent, Ohio to New Jersey Atlantic coast (Perth Amboy): 432 miles.

2480/(2480+432) = 85.2%.
5/6 = 83.3%

Yeah, you are correct to object, it's slightly MORE than 5/6 of the way across the country to the Pacific from the easternmost state counted as "Midwest".

My dad was born in the real Midwest, on a farm in Huron, South Dakota ... he was always amused by Ohio and Michigan being counted as "Midwestern".

Ah, I see. I read that as 5/6 of the way to the Pacific, from east to west. I thought you were counting some of the mountain states as Midwest! 04-cheers

I like building a conference out of historical and regional rivalries. Keeping the conference relatively geographically contained should also reduce travel expenses, encourage away game fans, and build budding rivalries. I think that's a good plan for long-term stability. I'm not familiar with Marshall-WKU, but okay. CCU-Temple? Huh?

Basically the MAC plus UC/Marshall/Temple and minus EMU/BG/Kent.

East:
Miami
Cincinnati
Ohio
Marshall
Buffalo
Temple

West:
Akron
Toledo
Ball State
NIU
WMU
CMU

Bowls: Citrus (vs. SEC), Motor City (vs. Big Ten), Indianapolis (vs. AAC), Las Vegas (vs. MWC), Mobile (vs. Sun Belt), Bahamas (vs. C-USA); secondary tie-ins with Gasparilla and Military. Would revive previous Tangerine Bowl, Las Vegas Bowl, and Motor City tie-ins the MAC had with the SEC, Big West, and Big Ten from the past while providing another local game in a dome with Indy.
