Power 5 Association Preview?

1

At the ACC, Big XII, SEC and B1G Media days, there was discussion of the Power 5 conferences forming their own separate association. If we separate into four regions (North, South, East and West), and assume :1) The ACC will envelop the remainder of the Big East ; 2) the Big XII will be divided amongst the B1G and PAC-12 conferences; and 3) Notre Dame would join a regional conference, then this how the new landscape of college football would become Northern Region - B1G Ten - Chicago, IL A. GREAT LAKES DIVISION Michigan Michigan State Ohio State Wisconsin Minnesota Illinois Northwestern Notre Dame B. GREAT PLAINS DIVISION Indiana Purdue Iowa Iowa State Nebraska Missouri Kansas Kansas State Eastern Region - ACC - Washington, D.C. A. SOUTHERN DIVISION North Carolina North Carolina State Wake Forest Duke Virginia Virginia Tech West Virginia Miami B. NORTHERN DIVISION Pittsburgh Syracuse Boston College Penn State Cincinnati Maryland Louisville Rutgers Western Region - PAC 16 or PCC - Las Vegas, NV A. PACIFIC DIVISION Washington Washington state Oregon Oregon State Stanford California UCLA USC B. ROCKIES DIVISION Arizona Arizona State Utah Oklahoma Oklahoma State Texas Texas Tech Baylor Southern Region - SEC - Atlanta, GA A. WESTERN DIVISION Alabama Arkansas Auburn Mississippi Mississippi State LSU Texas A&M Kentucky B. EASTERN DIVISION Florida Florida State Georgia Georgia Tech South Carolina Clemson Tennessee Vanderbilt ***If Notre Dame decides to remain independent, then they should play at least 3 teams from each region. A lock in "schedule" could then include Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Stanford, USC, and Boston College to protect their core rivals. Then have 6 free games to schedule. Then I'd replace ND in the B1G with a Colorado or Boise State? Share your thoughts people!
