Do we re-align conferences or stay traditional?

    I went with allow movement that makes sense. If it means a guy may got a shot at a team he is more passionate about or interested in I am for it.

    Is Traditional going to mimic the actual conference movement? IE: 'Cuse/Pitt moving to the ACC. SMU and everyone else moving to the Big East, so on and so forth?

    I'd also like to see, let's say if for 5 seasons UCF dominates CUSA, that they get a 'bid' to move into a better league, to be voted on by us obviously.

    Lets not even go there yet. I can discuss this later. For the purposes of the draft, I'm strictly speaking about what teams will be available to pick from.

    Traditional: As is. No Cuse or Pit to draft from.

    I say traditional , if we wanted teams not in these conf then we should have picked diff conferences. I dislike going all willy nilly with confrence & CPB , next thing you know our league looks like 12 seven year olds play in the OD :(

    But maybe I am just old and grumpy

    I voted allow, BUT I don't want to add teams that are already heading there. I would be ok with moving a team to another aide of the conference. Say Someone wants cal but that side is filled up. I say that would be ok on a case by case basis

    Honestly, what is the big deal if we move a couple of regionally appropriate schools into other conferences for the purposes of fun? As well, how is it different than allowing custom playbooks? Not that there is anything wrong with that. It almost seems like folks are just voting no on conferences/playbooks for the sake of arguing, not for the betterment of other people's experiences. Im not trying to be a dick here, but what is the big damn deal if Boise moves to the Pac-12? What is so terrible about BYU in the Big 12? What is so terrifying about moving Florida or South Carolina into the ACC?

    Is it for the sake or 'keeping things traditional and conservative'? I dont think anyone is advocating a "willy-nilly" approach where we put Ohio State in the ACC, and Texas in the PAC-12. A few reasonable moves here and there will not kill the fun of this league for you Pac-12 lovers. If we all were so "traditional" in our college football values we'd have gone Big Ten and SEC.

    I'd also like to add, since IRL the ACC will be adding Syracuse and Pittsburgh, whether we wait to do it now or later(or not at all), I wouldn't mind adding 2 teams to the PAC to make it a 14 team and 14 team league.

    Since Boise is going to the Big East IRL(if we choose to make those moves to mimic it in 2014) and BYU might be heading to the Big XII, I'd be inclined to maybe put BYU in the PAC, including a team like Fresno State, who should be able to compete, and even Colorado State/Utah State for the rivalries built-in with Utah and Colorado currently residing in the PAC.

    We're at 12 and 12 now. It'll likely stay that way, but I appreciate the input.

    Dead issue. No realignment this year guys. For those on both sides, thanks for talking it out. I'm really happy with the way we've come together as a group.
