That's 16/18. Duke has done more in football lately than Virginia.

Yeah, that's what I get for posting before coffee...
07-coffee3

So here's a possible football setup for this conference, with Virginia football dropped instead of Duke football:

Four 4-team pods rotate between two 8-team divisions (Atlantic/Coastal) in a 3-year cycle. Each team has a protected crossover and an alternate crossover for years in which the team shares a division with its protected crossover.

School: Protected crossover (play every year), Alternate crossover (play 2 years out of 3)

Pod 1
Boston College: Syracuse, Clemson
Louisville: South Carolina, North Carolina
Miami-FL: Florida State, Virginia Tech
Notre Dame: Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech

Pod 2
Syracuse: Boston College, NC State
Maryland: North Carolina, South Carolina
Penn State: Virginia Tech, Florida State
Pittsburgh: Notre Dame, Duke

Pod 3
Clemson: NC State, Boston College
South Carolina: Louisville, Maryland
Florida State: Miami-FL, Penn State
Georgia Tech: Duke, Notre Dame

Pod 4
NC State: Clemson, Syracuse
North Carolina: Maryland, Louisville
Virginia Tech: Penn State, Miami-FL
Duke: Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh

(If you really want to keep Virginia FB over Duke, put North Carolina in all the spots Duke currently is, and then put Virginia in the spots vacated by North Carolina.)

And here's a basketball setup. Each team has 3 protected opponents (listed below) that are played twice every year, while all other teams are played once for a total of 20 games.

Code:
BOSTON COLLEGE  Syracuse        Notre Dame      Miami-FL        
CLEMSON         South Carolina  Georgia Tech    Florida State  
DUKE            North Carolina  Wake Forest     NC State        
FLORIDA STATE   Miami-FL        South Carolina  Clemson        
GEORGIA TECH    Notre Dame      Clemson         South Carolina  
LOUISVILLE      Maryland        Virginia        Virginia Tech  
MARYLAND        Louisville      Penn State      Virginia        
MIAMI-FL        Florida State   Virginia Tech   Boston College  
NC STATE        Wake Forest     North Carolina  Duke            
NORTH CAROLINA  Duke            NC State        Wake Forest    
NOTRE DAME      Georgia Tech    Boston College  Pittsburgh      
PENN STATE      Pittsburgh      Maryland        Syracuse        
PITTSBURGH      Penn State      Syracuse        Notre Dame      
SOUTH CAROLINA  Clemson         Florida State   Georgia Tech    
SYRACUSE        Boston College  Pittsburgh      Penn State      
VIRGINIA        Virginia Tech   Louisville      Maryland        
VIRGINIA TECH   Virginia        Miami-FL        Louisville      
WAKE FOREST     NC State        Duke            North Carolina

Allow conference members to schedule basketball games anyway they want. If a team wants to schedule an out of conference team the week before the league tournament, let them!!! These forced rivalry in-league basketball games are just dumb, IMO.

RE: If You Could Change Anything About Your Team’s Current Conference...
Other than teleporting Gonzaga to the East Coast? Not a whole lot.

I would like DePaul to become more competitive (which they look to be on the verge of being), as well as having stronger leadership and support for their men's basketball program. Ideally, Wintrust Arena would have been located closer to DePaul's campus, but if they return to being a winning program (something not seen in a LONG time), fans will undoubtedly come to see (especially with the Bulls being pathetic here in Chicago). In addition, Georgetown returning to a top-15 program would really help elevate the league as well (especially with Villanova's success and St. John's return to a top-25-level program).

I love the fact that St. John's is moving all of its conference games to MSG next year. That would mean that all of the Big East venues have strong attendance opportunities for conference-play (near 10k or higher).

Extension to the Gavitt Games would be wonderful, and the Big 12 Challenge is a huge plus as well. In retrospect, the Big East not getting a challenge completed with the PAC was a blessing in disguise. I'd also like to see Val extended, as she has been one of the best commissioners over the past several years. Getting MSG extended for the BET really strengthened the league's position for the next television agreement.

I would also love if Saint Louis elevated their play under Ford consistently enough to get to be #11 in the conference, going to twenty conference games, and adding an extra game for the BET. Dayton would be an excellent addition as well (just because of their strong fan support and commitment to men's basketball); however, I get the Xavier-issue. The round-robin is (and has been) one of the strengths of the league; not sure how long it can/will last, but I really enjoy it.
