I think this conference would do pretty well. Thoughts?

I like it very close footprint, maybe get rid of some of the Texas teams and widen the layout.

Assuming P5 off-limits, something like this.

Assume nothing! The only rules are you make the rules (OK they have to be Div. 1 schools)!


I am kinda wishing that the 1978 and 1982 rules that actually split conferences up that hurt schools like West Texas A&M, Wichita State, Lamar, McNeese State, Hardin-Simmons and UTA. Some downgraded while a couple dropped football. West Texas A&M was West Texas State when they were 1A/FBS beginning in 1978 part of MVC with schools like Tulsa and New Mexico State. If they stayed in D1 for several more years? Would the SWC still a FBS conference with them coming on board? They would pair nicely with UTEP when UTEP are really on an island.

Thanks. The whole point was to have a conference where at least half the members belonged to a Power conference at some point in their history. I think I achieved that here.

That said. I'll make a compromise SWC where I substitute Lamar, North Texas, and UTSA for the following teams: Tulsa, Kansas, and Kansas State. Therefore, they could be divided into North and South divisions, and the layout gets expanded north into Kansas.

SWC (with Kansas Big 12 teams and Tulsa):

North
Arkansas
Arkansas State
Kansas
Kansas State
Memphis
Oklahoma State
Tulsa

South
Houston
Louisiana-Lafayette
Louisiana Tech
Rice
SMU
Texas State
Tulane

Makes for a good football-first conference with some good hoops, too. (Besides, I just can't separate the teams that were at one point members of the SWC during its existence. Only Oklahoma State had moved on by the time Houston joined the league, but most of the other actual SWC schools included in this dream conference played each other for at least thirteen years. So I couldn't split them up. And furthermore, the basis of the first iteration of my new SWC came from this fake news thread I wrote last year. I feel like I could've won the contest if I had made it a little more realistic, i guess. lol)
