Customized Conferences for 76 Teams, a solution

One of my problems with 14 team conferences is the conference dictates team's schedules. Penn St-Pitt, Illinois-Mizzou, Minn-Iowa St, Ohio St-Cincy & Indiana-Lville are ignored.

In Fantasyland, I propose that conferences become more of a loose affiliation of like-minded teams (mostly grouped by location) and return the power to schedule to the teams. This way, teams aren't forced into 8-9 conference games/1-2 out-of-conference games, but can schedule 10 games vs whatever BCS-level teams they wish. This would create huge rivalries between schools because they'll play their 10 biggest rivals every year. Fans/students would be able to travel to a lot more away games because their team will be playing close to home. No more forced matchups like Florida-Mizzou, South Carolina-A&M, Clemson-Boston College or Florida State-Syracuse.

10 games vs BCS-level to keep the competition more consistent but a school can schedule annual matchups against teams from any conference they wish. Games 11 & 12 would be home games against lower level FBS/FCS teams so we can all enjoy 7 home games. I sorted 76 teams into the 7 conferences - SEC 12, ACC 11, BE 14, B1G 11, SWC 7, MWC 10 & PAC 11. Conference championships might be anticlimactic since each team can play a different number of conference games. The conference championship might just go to the highest ranked team. Then the top 8 ranked teams or 7 conference champions & the highest ranked at-large team would play in College Football Playoffs.


Below I made up a 10-game annual schedule for all 76 teams. Your team would play these 10 games every year, home and away (except for neutral site games like Florida-Georgia). To the left of your teams' name are 3 numbers - the top is# of games within a 5 hour drive (325 miles), middle is average miles to the 10 opponents' campuses and bottom is average # of times your school has played the 10 opponents in the past 30 years (1983-2012). To the right are all 10 games your team would play annually, in order from closest to further away from campus. The middle # is miles to that opponents' campus. Bottom is # of times the 2 teams have played in the past 30 years.

10/11 BIG teams would rotate playing 10 playing 10/11 MAC teams at home. Miami (Oh) would play Cincy annually. NDame would play someone else. UMass & Buffalo would not be included.

BIG - 11 teams.

9 Ohio State Buckeyes Cincy Pitt Michigan West Va Indiana Purdue Mich St Illinois Penn St Wisc
249 105 185 190 205 225 240 250 300 320 470
19 4 7 30 2 26 24 20 28 20 26

Ohio State should play Cincy annually. It's an hour & a half drive & they can play in Paul Brown Stadium (66k). Pitt & West Va are also too close (& border states) to ignore. From the old Big 11 they skip NWern, Minn & Iowa. Play 9 games within a 5 hour roadtrip (325 miles or less), average distance to opponents is 249 miles & Ohio St's played them an average of 19 times. 6 conference games. Ends season w/ Michigan.

6 Michigan Wolverines Mich St NDame Ohio St NWern Purdue Indiana Illinois Wisc Iowa Minn
309 65 170 190 260 260 315 345 385 445 650

25 30 28 26 20 26 26 22 27 24 22

Michigan & Mich St play the exact same schedule. Play every team from the old Big 10 and NDame. 10 conference games. Michigan ends season w/ Ohio St & Mich St ends season w/ Wisc (2 states do border).

10 Purdue Boilermakers Illinois Indiana NDame NWern Cincy Lville Ohio St Mich St Michigan Wisc
182 95 100 110 140 175 180 240 250 260 270

18 2 30 3 26 21 26 26 26 22 2

Indiana & Purdue play Lville & Cincy on their border. Purdue plays NDame & Wisc, while Indiana plays Kentucky & UConn (similar basketball-first program, had to make the schedules fit evenly so this is an outlier). They play all the BIG schools from their border states. 8 conference games for Purdue, 6 for Indiana. End season w/ each other.

8 Illinois Fighting Illini Purdue Indiana NWern Iowa Wisc Mizzou Ohio St Mich St Michigan Minn
266 95 150 155 245 250 285 300 325 345 510
24 24 26 30 22 26 12 28 22 26 22

Illinois is in the heart of B1G country so they play all of the old BIG 10 schools plus Mizzou on their western border. 9 conference games. Ends season w/ NWern.

7 Northwestern Wildcats NDame Purdue Wisc Illinois Indiana Mich St Michigan Minn Cuse BC
340 115 140 145 155 240 240 260 405 695 1000
19 4 26 24 30 26 26 20 24 5 4

As a private school, NWern plays out-of-conference games vs Cuse & BC. Plus NDame & 7/9 old BIG 10 schools.8 conference games. Ends season with Illinois.

6 Wisconsin Badgers NWern Iowa Illinois Iowa St Purdue Minn Mich St Michigan Ohio St Nebraska
309 145 175 250 270 270 275 370 385 470 480
21 22 26 26 2 22 30 27 22 26 3

Wisc plays all of the old BIG 10 schools except for Indiana. They complete their schedule with bordering Iowa St & out west w/ Nebraska. 8 conference games. Ends season w/ Mich St.

6 Iowa Hawkeyes Iowa St Wisc Mizzou Illinois Minn Nebraska Kansas Kansas St Mich St Michigan
300 125 175 235 245 280 300 345 415 430 445
16 30 26 1 22 30 4 0 3 24 24

Iowa plays a half BIG 10 schedule & half Big 8 schedule since they're in the middle. Michigan, Mich St, Illinois, Wisc & Minn in-conference. Border states Mizzou & Nebraska, nearby Kansas schools & in-state Iowa St. 5 conference games. Ends season w/ Iowa St.

3 Minnesota Golden Gophers Wisc Iowa St Iowa NWern Nebraska Illinois Mich St Michigan BYU Boise St
595 145 215 280 405 420 510 630 650 1260 1430
16 22 4 30 24 6 22 22 26 0 0

Minn plays the most northern & western of the old BIG 10 schools, boarder team Iowa St & relatively Nebraska. But that's only 8 games & Minn is pretty isolated from other schools, so they go out west to play other northern schools in Boise St & BYU. 6 conference games. Ends season w/ Boise St.

4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Purdue NWern Mich St Michigan Pitt Navy BC Miami USC Stanford

NDame plays Michigan, Mich St, Purdue & NWern close to home. Plays rivals Pitt, BC & Navy. & has faraway games vs Miami, USC & Stanford. Plays 4 conference games. Ends season w/ road trips to USC or Stanford.

B1G 11. Plays 30 non-conference games. 14 games vs BE, 12 games vs MWC. NDame plays 2 games vs USC/Stanford & plays Miami. Kentucky plays Indiana. NDame is listed here b/c they play more BIG schools than vs any other conference. Nebraska is in MWC. Penn St, Rutgers & Maryland are in BE.

Here's the rest of the BCS-level conferences:

Big East 14. 46 non-conference games. 23 games vs ACC, 14 games vs B1G, 9 games vs SEC.

Penn St plays Ohio St, Maryland & Rutgers from the future B1G 14.

Temple only has 7 games so Game 8 is Penn St or Maryland, #9 is BC or Cuse & #10 is Pitt or West Va. The teams will alternate playing Temple in home&home series. So every 4 years these teams will give up their 7th home game to play Temple at the Eagles NFL stadium in Philadelphia.

Atlantic Coast 11. ACC plays 42 non-conference games. 23 games vs BE, 18 vs SEC & Miami plays NDame.

Southeastern - 11 teams. SEC plays 46 non-conference games. 18 games vs ACC, 15 vs SWC & 9 vs BE. Arkansas plays 3 games vs MWC & Kentucky plays Indiana. Memphis is listed here because they play 7 games vs the SEC... South Carolina is under ACC because the play more games vs ACC (6) tha SEC (4)... A&M plays LSU & Arkansas but their other 8 games are against teams from Texas & Oklahoma... Mizzou plays against the other 7 Big Eight teams in the MWC & just plays Arkansas from the SEC. They also play Iowa & Illinois from the B1G.

Arkansas is closest to Oklahoma & Ok State but never plays them or Mizzou. Memphis is practically in Arkansas & has a 61k seat stadium. They round out their schedule w/ Ole Miss, Miss St & LSU in-conference & 3 schools from Texas (old SWC). 4 games are within 5 hours (325 miles), average distance to opponents is 402 miles & they've played them an average of 12 times each over the past 30 years (1983-2012). 4 conference games.

Memphis rides their location in the heart of SEC country to be listed as member. They're a convenient road trip for a lot of schools, in a NBA sized market, play in a 61k seat stadium & can be a breather in the hard SEC schedule. They play the 4 western most SEC teams, in-state Vandy & Tenn, plus other city-college Lville, Cincy, Houston & Kentucky. 7 conference games. Ends season w/ Vandy.

I worked it out so all 76 teams have a 10 game schedule they play annually (except Temple in a little different situation). They all work with each other’s schedules. Some BE teams have to play Army or Air Force to fill in holes & UConn-Indiana/ Boise State-Minnesota aren’t the best games out there but I feel this fantasyland plan puts teams on schedules their fans want to play the most.

It could be the football-only option & our real-life conferences could operate basketball & Olympic sports as normal. Or these could be customized conferences for each & every team. Where you play your 10 rivals once each in football (10 games), twice in basketball (home&away, 20 games) & baseball (30 games). Think about all the quick road trips you could take.
