    Mega-Conference/Playoff system

    There is some talk about CFB becoming a 4 mega-conference sport. I don't know if I would be for or against it, but it would have some built in advantages.

    First off, I would do 4 conferences with 20 teams each. Every conference would be broken into 2 divisions of 10. Each team would play 3 non-con games and 9 conference games. Your conference games would all be within you division, making it a true round robin. The top teams in each division play each other in what would be the conference title games...or essentially a playoff round of 8. The winners of the conference title games would meet for the round of 4, like what will happen in 2014.

    I feel like this would leave little room for debate considering you would have to run through your division, then conference title game, then semi-finals game, then Title game.

    Like I said, I'm not saying I am for or against it because it would basically eliminate some teams from EVER winning a conference title (but that is every year). ISU was close to winning the North a few years back, but imagine if their division included 4 more teams. It would make it much more difficult for a team like KU or Wake Forest to win their conference, but it has a built-in playoff system in the nature of the design. Also, it would mean 15 games for those teams that did make the title game if we stayed at a 12 game regular season.

    Is this at all how they are talking about the Mega-Conference alignment? It seems pretty solid for determining a "true" national champ.
