It is not me. I would love to see all 10 conferences go to 16 to make it 160 teams in FBS. Would bring more G5 schools into the P5 andmore FCS schools that do not belong at FCS be brought up.

Law of Diminishing Returns - 160 is way too many, 80 is more of the sweet spot.

I’ve seen a better plan here. From someone who posted this on Reddit, like 5 years ago.

There is a flaw, as discovered by one of the commenters in that image:

As mentioned in a previous thread about a different clickbait SI article, the SI of today is not the SI of five years ago, never mind the SI of fifty years ago ...

... so one might make that, in a previously major publication.

Very true. And, under Maven management, SI's days are most likely numbered.

There are missing schools and, obviously, some added programs since 2014. Overall, not a bad alignment. I'm PRO promotion/relegation but I understand why it wouldn't work in college sports. Regardless, this is a good effort.

RE: Pat Forde Outs Himself as Any Number of CSNbbs Posters
I'm of the belief that schools should be allowed to play at whichever level of football they choose. If they want to give out 85 scholarships, pay for extra coaches, and get their rear ends kicked year after year, that's on them. It doesn't mean I think the schools are making good decisions by being at the FBS level when all they do is draw poor attendance and run the budget into the ground, but it still should be their decision.

So if 30 more schools decide to move up to FBS, and they have a viable home to go to (whether in a conference or as an indeoendent), then that's fine.

I'm in the same boat. I do understand the need to have the red-tape. We don't want schools changing year-after-year which would look incredibly messy unless there's a ton of independents.

This article doesn't even meet minor publication standards.

How about

Great Mideast: All Ohio and Michigan schools (Akron, Central Michigan, Cincinnati, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Miami Ohio, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio, Ohio State, Toledo, Western Michigan)

Mid-American: All Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia schools (Ball State, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisville, Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Notre Dame, Purdue, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, West Virginia)

Great Midwest: All Illinois schools, Rest of current Great Midwest other than Michigan schools (Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, North Dakota State, Wisconsin)

Don't see any other major geographical out of placements.
Pat?

There is neither reason or a shread of reality in this article. It is about as useful as arguing for the reallocation of the 50 states by population (the State of Houston vs. the State of Ark-La-Eastex)

It can't be DavidSt. It's missing all the spelling and grammar errors.

They must have a hard time getting clicks at SI. What a train wreck.

They've also posted an article about Forde's article that doesn't even correctly interpret it. I expect this article to be taken down shortly.

I can look past realignment articles talking about things with no realistic chance of ever being implemented if they're at least intriguing and bring an interesting and unique edge to the realignment genre. This article fails both tests pretty badly, though.

Ah, but what if SI hasn't fired all of their sub-editors yet? Maybe someone went through and fixed the spelling and grammar errors.

Which would go even further to make it seem like David State is not Pat.

The scarier thought is the "channeling" is not a metaphor but literally true, where Pat Forde is so out of his mind bored working at the "new" SI that he goes into a fugue state and starts writing down what David State is thinking at his undisclosed location. {X Files music plays in the background.}

It's not gonna happen, but if it ever does, it would finally put Houston back in a conference with old SWC foes Baylor, UT, TCU, Rice, and TAMU. And it would revive the old SWC name.
