RE: Make your own conference only 10 teams.
On another thread I suggested a 10 team conference you could have made up entirely out of eastern independents at the time of the FBS/FCS split:

Penn State (#3 AP rank in 1981)
Pitt (#4)
Miami (#8)
West Virginia (#17)
Virginia Tech
Florida State
South Carolina
Boston College
Rutgers
Syracuse

This is the conference I would like. It puts back historical rivalries and declutters the BIG and ACC

would the BB tournament be in NYC or Philly?

Conference champions play on New Year's at the Cotton Bowl

I have long been intrigued by the idea of a national Magnolia Conference. I would do something like this:

Boston College
Duke
Miami
Northwestern
Notre Dame
Stanford
UCLA
USC
Wake Forest
Vanderbilt

If I could add two more, I would go with Georgetown and Tulane. That would be a really strong academically-led, athletically-strong, national conference.

Duke
Vanderbilt
Wake Forest
Rice
Boston College
Georgia Tech
Notre Dame
Tulane
Northwestern
Miami


A lot of travel, but, yes. In.

That also was chartered before the other one by over a century.

Cool conference idea though, old CCHA vibes. I'd swap ASU for Penn State.
