    I'm flexible but I kinda liked the idea of everyone take who they want, conference be damned.

    It would be a change......

    I was thinking people literally take whatever team they want. You want Michigan, take Michigan. You want UCLA, take em. You want Podunk Polytechnic U, have at it.

    I doubt it flies but I think it would be fun.

    On the one hand, the pick whoever idea is okay, but then I think it will be likely that we will end up with everyone taking big time teams. Not that that is a bad thing, but just imagine WGW at Alabama considering what he did with Arkansas.

    I like the 12 independents, but maybe we could put some * restrictions based on success, something like WGW and I can have 4* or lower, everyone else 6*

    The only issue with could be user games. If someone is in a conference alone they will get 3 or 4 user games. I'm not opposed to it just worried guys will get bored playing the CPU games

    In a perfect world for me, I'd like to see us all start as lower tier teams, 3* or lower. Could accomplish that with virtually any conference setup since most of the bigger conferences still have half of their teams at that level.

    In the end, I am cool with whatever anyone wants to do.

    I agree. I think if it is a free for all pick we should all just go independent, We can then say 5-7 user games is the goal and make sure everyone has that amount each season pretty easily plus you could make sure everyone gets their rival each year.

    Downside is that it is more scheduling work for the commish

    My trouble with the small schools is being a somewhat casual college fan I don't know much (and don't care much) about the non-AQ conferences.

    But like I said, I'm flexible.

    It gives us the illusion of having a chance

    My preference would also be for small conference teams. Like Wyrm mentioned, conference set up could be modified to fit what we want.

    That was kinda my point :p

    If the recruiting is a lot harder (heard that before) then it may at least give everyone else a built in advantage for longer if we use a tiered team selection

    The thing is, if we say let's do Pac 12 and Boom takes Colorado and Jayrah takes Wazzu, then WGW and I would end up at "better" schools than them, put you at UCLA and you are roughly even with whoever we end up with....

    Hell, why does it always have to be two BCS conferences or 2 non AQ, we could go one big one small..... something like Mountain West and Pac 12 (or big 12). Put WGW and I in the MW with a no Boise rule (for us) plus have us pick last in that conference and we are at a built in disadvantage against the better MW users and against pretty much all of the Pac12 schools even if star ratings are close.

    I like that idea. Keeps is regional too. But who else would go in the MWC? Or does it matter?

    I think you and WGW should be Army and Navy. We'll figure out the rest :)

    I was Army in 4th Horseman, my year 5 Army roster was better than my year 5 Mizzou team......

    And how is that a positive argument for this setup? :)
