Don't know if this is worthy of a fan post, but we started talking scheduling in the Maryland hate piece, so I thought I'd try my hand at putting a schedule together using pods to see how it would look.
The idea behind pods is simple: Divisions rotate. Half the years, North and West are in the same division (1st line of each row). For the other two years, North and South are in the same division (2nd line). This means that 3/4 of your conference opponents will be division games instead of only 1/2.
I also included a permanent crossover for each team. The teams you would play every year, including the crossover, are shown in bold. The crossover means tougher teams can generally have tougher opponents, and it also means rivalries will mostly stay intact, regional or otherwise.
