SCHEDULING:

 

FBS 1A:

Each conference has 16 teams, 2 divisions.
Every team MUST play 12 games each season.
Every team MUST play their 7 divisional rivals, leaving 5 games to schedule.
Of the 5 games remaining to schedule:

- 1 MANDATORY game against team in opposite division of the same conference.

- 2 MANDATORY games against other League 1A opponents in any conference.

- 1 optional game against a League 1B school.

- 1 optional game against an FCS school

 

 

FBS 1B:
Each conference has at least 12 teams, 2 divisions.

Every team MUST play at least 10 games each season.
Every team MUST play their divisional rivals with at least 3 games to schedule
Of the games remaining to schedule:

- 1 MANDATORY game against team in opposite division of the same conference.

- 2 optional games against League 1A OR League 1B opponents in any conference. (MUST schedule at least 1)

- 1 optional game against an FCS school

 

 

As far as the American and C-USA are concerned, It would be mandatory for them to play 12 games.

 

PLAYOFFS:


FBS 1A
 
 
•8 teams, #1 and #2 in the nation on opposite sides of the bracket.
•4 spots reserved for Conference Champions.
•Remaining 4 spots are determined by the four highest rankings in AP polls of teams that have not clinched a playoff spot.
•FBS 1B teams may qualify for one spot in the playoffs IF that team is undefeated and within the Top 8 of the AP poll.
•First Round of playoffs would have games played in the highest seeded team’s home stadium.
•Second Round of playoffs would resemble today’s model of the CFP, where the remaining 4 teams would play in 2 of the “New Year’s Six” Bowls
•First Round of playoffs would begin the week after the Conference Championships

•Second Round and Championship Game would follow the current CFP schedule.

 

FBS 1B

 

•4 team playoff, however, the 1B Playoffs technically begin during the conference championships.

•All four spots are reserved only for conference champions.
•Like the current CFP, six rotating Bowl Games will be associated with this playoff for the first round.
•The official name of the title game will be the American Championship Game
•The first round will begin the week before the 2nd round of the 1A playoffs, and the American Championship Game will take place the week before the CFP National Championship Game.
•The site of title game could be a decision of either taking place at the same site of the CFP National Championship Game or a different, smaller stadium.
•The Coaches Trophy/Crystal Ball would return for American Championship.
 
Bowls associated with FBS 1B playoffs:
Alamo / Gator / Holiday / Las Vegas / Liberty / New Orleans

Big12 playoff chatter once again. Big10 & co. want them to have 12 teams for that.

I've said it before, might as well steal UCF & USF while they're out there, move into not only the southeast neighbourhood, yet Florida recruiting backyards also.

Of course they'd never do that... I read they'd like UConn & probably Cincinnati (since they want a bit of that region & didn't bite on Louisville when they were available).

How about a D-I conference based on the Upper Midwest? For instance:

Midwest-10 Conference

* North Dakota State

* North Dakota

* South Dakota State

* South Dakota

* Nebraska-Omaha

* Northern Iowa

MW-10 East

* Missouri State

I believe adding 2 teams to Major League Baseball is not enough, so why not add 10, and while we're at it, let's shorten the schedule to 150 games. There would be 8 divisions of 5 teams. There would be the NL/AL South, NL/AL North, NL/AL East, and the NL/AL West. The teams would go as following:

NL North

-Milwaukee

-Louisville (Expansion)

-Chicago

-Cincinnati

-St. Louis

NL South

-Miami

-Atlanta

-Nashville (Expansion)

-Tampa Bay (From AL)

-Memphis (Expansion)

NL East

-New York

-Philadelphia

-Washington

-Pittsburgh

-Montreal (Expansion)

NL West

-Los Angeles

-San Francisco

-Colorado

-Arizona

-Salt Lake City (Expansion)

AL North

-Cleveland

-Detroit

-Minnesota

-Chicago

-Indianapolis (Expansion)

AL South

-Texas

-Houston

-Kansas City

-New Orleans (Expansion)

-Oklahoma City (Expansion)

AL East

-New York

-Boston

-Baltimore

-Toronto

-Charlotte (Expansion)

AL West

-Oakland

-Anaheim/Los Angeles

-Seattle

-Portland (Expansion)

-San Diego (From NL)

Each team will play 150 games. 40 games will be vs division members, with 10 games vs each member (5 at home, 5 away), 90 vs same league members, with 6 games vs each team (3 at home, 3 away), and 20 games vs 1 inter-league division, with 4 games vs each team (2 at home, 2 away).

As for the playoffs, each league will now have 8 teams, with 4 division winners, and 4 wild card teams. There will be a best-of-5 game division series, followed by a best-of-5 quarterfinal series. Then there will be a best-of-7 championship series, leading up to the best-of-7 World Series.

Since some of you monkeys are bored as crap, and since no one likes pointless realignment posts crapping up real threads, I've created this thread specifically for you to post your pointless, unrealistic, and borderline asinine realignment ideas here.

Anyone from this point on who posts anything realignment-related in a real thread from hereon in deserves every amount of crap the rest of the community decides to heap upon them.

Go hog wild.

I'd probably put a team or three in London, one in Pyongyong, two or three on the moon, and one smack in the middle of the sun.

Expand the season to 200 games, but build in extra travel days so teams can travel to these new locations, so the season would probably take 400 days or so. Since it would span more than one earth year, it wouldn't be able to start and stop at the same time anymore, so it would always be staggered, so the first season under this format would start in April 2018 and the Worlds series would be in May 2019, then the next season would start September 2019 and end in October 2020, and so on.

They wouldn't be able to refer to seasons by year anymore, so each season would get a name. It could be named after world leaders, or former players, or they could even sell the naming rights. So season 1 under this format could be the Sanders Season, season two could be the Griffey Season, season three could be the JVC Kaboom Box Season, and so on and so forth.

Laughed so hard at this, tears came out of my eyes.

I forgot to add that since the seasons would go through winters, every team would need to either build an indoor stadium, or play all of their winter games at the ultra-mega-super domed stadium complex that the league would construct in Des Moines. I'm thinking a huge structure that has enough fields in it that at least 15 games could be played at the same time. The seating would be all around, so if your team was playing on one of the inner fields, you wouldn't be able to see too well, but there would be an app so you could watch the action on your mobile device in the comfort of your stadium seat. I'm imaging this like 5x bigger than the biggest nascar track, and the individual baseball fields would be separated by walls on the inside. Each field would have a unique configuration, so one might have a "green monster", one might have bizarre angles, and a few would be elevated so if you fall over the divider wall making a play, you would fall right in to the field of another game that's going on.

One more thing - since most players would probably be not respond well to the intense heat while playing in the sun, there would be a series of special drafts throughout the season where teams can draft extra players from other teams rosters and "sacrifice" them so as to protect their stars from almost certain incineration.

Would all these games be broadcast on the same channel at the same time, too?

Um no, that would be silly.

They'd air sequentially, with all but the first game on tape delay. Since there's so many games and only 24 hours in an earth day, each day of games would take around 3 days to broadcast, so a full 200 game season spanning 400 days would take around 3 years to get through, so the further along you go, the more behind you are. So for example, the North Korean Motors season would air while part of the Creamer season (3 seasons post Korean Motors) was being played. Of course there could potentially be years of spoilers out there, so anyone who goes to Des Moines will have to use spoiler tags in their posts.

It's really the only way.

Makes sense, but would there be any problems with jerseys when teams travel to play at the Sun?
