Add quality mid majors where needed to get each to twelve teams, and maybe flip some teams to balance the regions. Each league plays 1 bowl against each other league. 8 team playoff with the first two rounds at campus sites. College football was always meant to be a regional game, and that's when it's at it's best


I edited mine.....

I think regional or Radial Leagues are the best. ACC gets a little spread out but that's the best traditional way to do it.

re: What would be the "perfect" SEC?
Go back to 12 teams.

Play 8 conference games.
5 division.
Rotate 3 other division teams every 2 years.

So Auburn would play Florida and Tennessee at home once while each player was there instead of once in 12 years.

Currently, Unless it’s your “traditional” rival, the teams in the other division are like playing an OOC game. League is too big for 8 game schedule.

FIFY

Personally, I think the SEC would work well with 16 teams. What do you think would be the perfect combination of schools in the SEC? Here is my pick:

Eastern Division:
- Clemson*
- Florida
- Florida State*
- Georgia
- Georgia Tech*
- Kentucky
- South Carolina
- MISSOURI

Western Division:
- Alabama
- Auburn
- Arkansas
- Louisiana State
- Mississippi
- Mississippi State
- Texas A&M
- Vanderbilt

* Added
** Dropped: TENNESSEE

re: What would be the "perfect" SEC?
Problems with these realignment scenarios.....

#1 No ACC schools to the SEC
ESPN will not allow the ACC to be cracked so FOX can raid it

#2 B1G will not add schools deemed beneath them
No Kansas State for academics
No Iowa State for #2 in Iowa (they already have #1 in IA)

#3 ND will not join the B1G
While it makes sense from geographic sense, it does not from cultural sense

Very much needed if you went that direction.

re: What would be the "perfect" SEC?
The SEC won't be poaching any ACC schools and especially not 3 of them. If we're talking realistic expansion, that will only come after the Big 12 begins to implode again. Ideally we add Oklahoma and Oklahoma State to the West, move Missouri to the West, and move Alabama and Auburn to the East. Expand to 9 or 10 game conference schedules with no cross divisional rival games. Alternate the SECC between Atlanta and major city located within the West.

Doesn't make sense.

We are not going to double up in Oklahoma.
Not worth it.
If we wanted to double up it would be Texas, Georgia or Florida

Out with LSU, A&M, Arkansas, and Missouri.

Add Miami, FSU, Ga Tech, Clemson, Louisville, and maybe one of the up and comer FL schools. 16 teams and every team has their instate rival in the league. No schools in states with land west of the Mississippi or north of the Ohio. Then it would truly be the Southeastern conference. Yes I know it would never happen but that's my "perfect" SEC.

What has expansion brought to the SEC besides the ability to have a championship game ?

Agree 100%


I'll take it a step further and say get rid of the NCG. There's no reason why a season in which Auburn beats Alabama or Michigan beats OSU should be considered a failure by their fans because they didn't win the championship.

Curtail the post season. Make the regular season great again!
