Should the AAC have had a bubble model?
It seemed to worked real well for the NBA and NHL and would have been interesting to see how well it would have worked for football.

Offer one of the independents affiliate membership this year and have two 6 team bubbles sites (divisions) one in the east and one in the west.

Play a UEFA Champions League style round robin/knockout style conference tournament

Play a 5 game round robin schedule within the division with games on Thursday-Friday-Saturday to allow for sanitation between games (balancing the schedule to limit short rest weeks).

The top 2 teams in each division after the 5 weeks get a bye to the second round of the knock out stages and the bottom 4 play each other to advance.

The winner of each division plays each other for a the conference title.

I honestly think this format would have been innovative for college football in a one off season like this as it allows teams that may not have started off strong (due to starting/stopping football activities in the summer) a chance to win a title.

Not practical. It cost the NBA $150M to have one bubble in Orlando. You're talking about a 10-12 game season over several months, with teams spread out all over the country.

The NFL isn't using a bubble. Neither is anybody else but the NHL and NBA Playoffs.

This. A bubble for college football and basketball is not practical. Especially with school involved.

bubble in college will not work, and is unaffordable.

A bubble model would be feasible if one of our universities shut down dorm rooms for the general population and housed all teams in their dorm rooms. You'd have to play all games in that one stadium or find some local fields to play in. It wouldn't be easy but it could be done. Of course getting everyone to agree on a location and planning the logistics and costs for food and finding 11 practice fields would be a gigantic undertaking.
