Lets start off with the format we want to use. I want to use a 2 conference setup but the specific conferences and the available teams are up for debate. I know the early conversation on conferences centered around 4 different conferences: ACC, B1G, Big 12 and Pac 12. In terms of restrictions there are several options available. Choice 1: Open, no restrictions Choice 2: 5-star team prestige and below, 6-star schools not allowed Choice 3: 4-star team prestige and below, 5 and 6-star schools not allowed Choice 4: 3-star team prestige and below, 4, 5 and 6-star schools not allowed ACC: 6 star - 0 5 star - 4 (Clemson, FSU, Miami, VT) 4 star - 3 (GT, Louisville, UNC) 3 star - 5 (BC, NC State, Pitt, Syracuse, Virginia) 2 star - 2 (Duke, Wake Forest) 1 star - 0 Overall this is one of the most balanced conferences, and is almost certainly a must use if we block 6-star or 5-star and above. If we decide to allow 6-star schools it is a less formidable conference. B1G: 6 star - 2 (Oh. State, Michigan) 5 star - 3 (Nebraska, PSU, Wisconsin) 4 star - 2 (Iowa, Michigan State) 3 star - 4 (Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue, Rutgers) 2 star - 3 (Indiana, Minnesota, Maryland) This is a balanced conference with 2 giants, a few perennial favorites and a decent middle tier. This dynasty is a decent choice with 6-star schools allowed, but is a poor choice for 5 and below. It is a decent choice for 4 star and below since there are 6 decent squads that can be built. Big 12 (if we go this route I will likely toss in BYU and Houston to make it 12 team conference) 6 star - 2 (Oklahoma, Texas) 5 star - 2 (Ok. State, TCU) 4 star - 2 (BYU, West Virginia) 3 star - 5 (Baylor, Iowa State, Houston, Kansas State, Texas Tech) 2 star - 1 (Kansas) 1 star - 0 If we choose 4 star and below this would be an ideal conference along with the ACC. There are 7 schools ranked between 3 and 4 stars. This is not a great choice for 5 and below because we'd have people spread out at 3 different starting prestige levels, same if we allow all schools. Pac 12: 6 star - 3 (USC, Oregon, Stanford) 5 star - 0 4 star - 2 (Utah, Washington) 3 star - 5 (Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Oregon State, UCLA) 2 star - 1 (Colorado) 1 star - 1 (Washington State) This is a terrible choice unless we opt to only allow 4 star and below prestige teams. There is a decent middle tier with Washington and UCLA both fitting the label of sleeping giants. I am very surprised Stanford made the jump to 6 star prestige after only being relevant for a few seasons.
