    Discuss the number of conferences you would like to see in the league next year:

    IDEAL TEAMS FOR EACH MEMBER:
    Cheez: Illinois, NIU, Stanford, Alabama - Will be good with pretty much anything
    Neal: ND, Army - Will be good with pretty much anything
    Jayrah: Cal - Would prefer to stay on the west coast
    Cougs: Washington St, Arizona, Northwestern, Michigan, Alabama, Auburn, GT, Clemson
    Dru: USC, LSU, Mississippi State, Florida, North Carolina - No Big XII, Big Ten, Big East
    Kapono: Florida State - Will be good with pretty much anything
    Mexi: Texas - Will be good with pretty much anything
    Bulldog: Georgia
    Recchem: UCLA, LSU - Will be good with pretty much anything

    I think 2 conferences plus independents..... mostly because I am partial to both Army and Notre Dame who are both independent, but also because including the independents can actually make scheduling easier when you are trying to fill in those mid season non conference weeks rather than loading up the first few weeks with non-conf user games. Generally I'd prefer my first 1-2 games to be vs the CPU so I can see my roster in action before playing a live opponent.

    Im not going to lie to you wyrm - I hate dealing with independents.

    I know it's counter-intuitive, because as you said it makes scheduling easier with all of the open dates. With that said, I'm big on balance, and allowing an independent would throw that out of wack entirely.

    Not to mention that you would be excluded from the X Conference vs. Y Conference (vs. Z Conference if necessary) debate that was on here last year, and that I want to restart in the event we go with a conference set up

    BOOOOO!!!! What I really want is to take Army while you guys have juggernauts...... then when season 8 comes around and I start my run of National titles (after a lot of tough years and losses) I can settle the debate you mentioned with a simple "neither"

    For balance, if you had 5 each in two conferences and 2 independents you'd be fine..... especially if you took conferences with no CCG (assuming people wanted a lot of user games, like 5-6 per season)

    not division wise. 3 teams in one division - 2 teams in another

    for scheudling purposes, that can be a pain to deal with.

    And I see yours. That's why I'm making it an open forum debate - so that we can all weigh in.

    This is also why I'm holding off on selecting conferences - because the answer to this question is certainly going to dictate the answer to that one.

    Im open to just about anything conference wise. I like the 2 conference set up. But if we do that I think we should have one west coast and one east coast conference. Like the ACC and Pac 12 or something along those lines. Im ok with indepents. Im not as strict as Cheez when it comes to that stuff.

    Cheez - it might make this discussion easier to find out if guys want to use a specific team or a team in a specific conference. I'm always a believer that guys are more invested if they are using a team they really like as opposed to having to pick a team in a specific conference for balancing purposes.

    I was kind of hoping that would come up through this topic. That way, we can figure out who wants to be where - making my next conference related topic (Which conferences should we use) pretty smooth.

    Truth be told, I was going around and around on how to go about figuring out a selection process for conferences.

    I'm still partial to Cal as I assume Wazzu is partial to the Cougs...

    If Big Ten - Illinois
    If MAC - NIU
    If Pac 10 - Stanford
    If SEC - Alabama

    other than that, I do not care.

    Hey man - if they were as bad as vandy I would still choose them. They are simply geared towards my offensive philosophy

    gowazzucougs said the same thing about me at Stanford .... and never beat Stanford with Washington State ;)

    Also, Jayrah could be Auburn - and we could have another hell of a rivalry
