    Could a 20 team BEast BBall conf. be set up like...

    ...baseball prior to inter-league play? Divide it into the two ten-team divisions based on geography. (Like the American/National league split) Everyone plays each team in their division twice and at the end of the year the two division champs meet in a conference championship.

    I think this would cut down on some of the geographic concerns and make a twenty-team conference more palatable to some.

    Thoughts?

    How would it be that different than the B12. All divisional would play twice and mix in series with teams from the other divisional ala FB in the B12, add nonconference games at the beginning and voila!

    Keep travel expenses down. The non-revenue sports could follow a similar model.

    I'd say you break it into 4 divisions.
    Play your division twice and 2 of the other 3 once.
    Rotate one of the divisions out/in every year
    that way in any 3 year period you get a home and home
    with every team in the conference.
    Only the top 4 from each Division make it to the conference tourney.
    Cross bracket the divisions that didn't play that year in the first round.

    They will figure it out. I would say each team play max of 18 conference games. There will be plenty of made for TV games but all the BE basketball games should be on TV somewhere one way or another.
