Super Conferences: purists hate them and AD's love them. With the recent developments of Texas and Oklahoma coming to the SEC. It only seems inevitable that we get a large super league and a smaller "developmental" league. At face value it is a purists nightmare. The top 12 teams knocking eachother out and letting the more than occasional sub par team to steal a championship. However what if we did the one thing most commenters on RBR have been adamantly against. Expansion. Forget about the top 10 or 12 teams in one conference. Lets try the top 48. These teams would be split into 4 confernces with 6 team divisions. Sounds a lot like the current NCAA format minus the Vanderbilt's and Illinois' of the world. With this comes an 8 team playoff wher the 4 conference champions get auto bids with 4 other at large bids decided by the old bcs computer format. The divisions are regional so I focused on that over old rivalries (Sorry Georgia).
The good: Rivalry week is going to be poppin in the legends division division. Backyard brawl, OSU vs UM and PSU vs ND. A lot of teams with history and some teams that look as if they are on the right track over the last few years.
The bad: OSU likely runs through this division, and the lack of talent up north really makes it thin on elite talent.
The good: Finally Clemson doesnt have a complete cake walk of a schedule. The division looks bad on paper but these are teams that have been able to in the past keep up with Clemson. The panhandle divion is no cake walk however. Florida, Georgia are the two immediate contenders to win but Miami and FSU can make it very interesting if they can get their collective ducks in a row.
The bad: Clemsons division is lacking a lot. But once again it is hard to find elite caliber teams which spoiler alert is a common theme.
Great Plains division
The good: Ehhhhh tradition I guess? To be honest this is the one division that can be erased off the map and I would be absolutely ok with it.
The bad: Whoever comes out if this conference is going to get steam rolled by anyone of the other contenders or auto bids. Be kind i didn't like making this conference either.
The good: The old rivalries stay alive (again sorry Georgia) probably the deepest conference in football but since this is geographically assigned it should not be a surprise.
The bad: The conference will only last a few years because Alabama will destroy every single one of these teams and eventually will will just be annexed to the NFL cause these snowflakes cant handle Coach Nick Saban's dominance.
What we learned: There are 3 truly elite teams in CFB and there is no manner of conference realignment or rule change that will fix this. I will say growing up in the North the legends division would be a wet dream for anyone who grew up in the big east days or earlier.
