I want to keep playing KU, K State and Okie St but Okie St is the best program, avoiding them wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

My pods would be the big 8 schools, the SWC schools and then the leftovers. Best way to preserve old rivalries.

Here are my hypothetical arrangements for 3- and 4-team pods. I think the 3-team version works best, while catering to the preferences of as many teams as possible.
  • All EST teams together
  • OSU playing TTU every year
  • TTU and UH playing every year
  • Farmageddon and Sunflower play every year
  • Revivalry plays every year
  • BYU will be able to fly to Dallas for TCU and BU games, makes travel somewhat easier

People are triggered by the word “pods” apparently. They’re just protected rivalries for rotating schedules. Would “regions” be a more appropriate term?

8 game schedule:

Eastern:
Cincinnati
UCF
West Virginia

Prairie:
Iowa State
Kansas
Kansas State

Texahoma:
Houston
Oklahoma State
Tech

Bible Belt:
Baylor
BYU
TCU

9 game schedule:

Eastern:
Cincinnati
Houston
UCF
West Virginia

Central:
Iowa State
Kansas
Kansas State
Oklahoma State

Western:
Baylor
BYU
TCU
Tech

To be the best , you need to beat the best. BRING ON OKIE STATE.
