    Crazy variable division idea

    I suppose on many levels this is pointless, but I found it an intriguing idea and intellectual exercise, so I thought I'd share:

    Both the Big 10 and Big 12 made me think of this -- how to split a 2 division conference equitably.

    I propose that the divisions are not static. Take each sport, and create 2 different divisions based on the final regular season standings.

    Division A: 1,4,5,8,9,12
    Division 1: 2,3,6,7,10,11

    I think this would work with no problem for basketball. For football, there would probably need to be some extra rules to make sure that every team plays every other team at least 1 out of 3 years (or something like that).


    May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Re: Crazy variable division idea

    Why not do it like they do in European league soccer. The teams that do crappy in the "A" league drop down to league "B" and vice versa where those that excel in league "B" go up to league "A."

    Re: Crazy variable division idea

    Why not solve the solution like this...

    1. No divisions.
    2. Rotating schedule. (You could still preserve rivalries.)
    2. Championship game is 1 vs. 2.

    But that's the opposite of equitable. My idea was to get rid of having 1 stacked division. Your idea would work more for BCS conference/mid-major conference. Like:

    Big 12 and Conference-USA team up. The best 10/12 or whatever from the 2 combined conferences is next year's Big 12. The rest are C-USA. Change it up every year.

    Back in the day I would feed our hogs cheese in hopes of having cheese-filled hot dogs. Instead, they just **** more, causing me to have to work more.
