And neither does adding Texas to anything

Texas comes to our home, changed everything around, steals our girlfriend and pushes us out.  Now they are going to bring our ex to our new house and try to be our roommate?! Why can't we avoid these

I actually wouldnt mind adding both Texas and Oklahoma. It would rekindle some fun rivalries. 

OU would be a great pick up. As far as Texass, I wouldn't mind them from a competitive standpoint and I think the games would be fun but I don't want them anywhere near conference making decisions. They are a virus. F Texass. Would rather see Kansas and OU. Unfortunately, the B1G is all about going for the larger TV markets and that money so we'll see what happens.

Honestly wouldn't mind this. Adds a couple closer road games each year.

 

 

MORE IMPORTANTLY IT RE-OPENS THE ALL IMPORTANT TEXAS RECRUITING GROUNDS, YOU KNOW SINCE WE CAN'T RECRUIT IN TEXAS ANYMORE GIVEN THAT WE'RE NOT IN A CONFERENCE THAT PLAYS IN THE STATE. /s

If it goes to 16 teams, it should be a Pod system

  • Four 4-team Pods
  • Play your Pod every year (those three teams home-and-home every two years)
  • Play one other Pod every year (every other team every three years, home-and-home every six years)
  • "Protected" games each year to preserve rivalries while balancing pods
  • The team with the best record within each year's paired Pods goes to the CCG

At first I wanted to play half of a third Pod each year instead of the protected games (so you would play every team at least every-other year) but I think it would be too hard to keep all the rivalries so there would be too much push-back.  I'd have to dig a little deeper to see if you could get that to work within the Pods.

 

East Pod: Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland

North Pod: Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern

West Pod: Nebraska, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois

South Pod: Texas, Oklahoma, Purdue, Indiana
