What's up guys? Hope you all have been doing great. I've missed you guys, along with getting to meet/know some as well. I've been chatting with nkmi and lans, trying to figure out if I'll get to participate. It's basically my wife allowing me or not, or if I'm slick enough to get by without her catching on. Don't think B is really an option, so my options are pretty much limited. I asked Lans today if there'd be any shot of maybe combining the ACC/SEC to have an OD between 12 dedicated users. By this I mean take roughly 6-8 SEC schools and 4-6 ACC schools and have less human vs human games. I'm all for the h vs h games, trust me, that's why I started this OD a few years ago. However, with participation dropping off some, maybe this will keep it alive. Here's the example I thought of earlier: Bama Auburn LSU Ole Miss Arkansas Florida* UGA Tennessee South Carolina* ...from the SEC, mainly take the most popular (Ole Miss fan here, that's why I listed them) Then take some ACC schools... FSU* Miami* Georgia Tech* Clemson* UNC (maybe since they'd kind of recruit against others) * denotes teams that will likely be required due to needing the rivalry between conferences Basically take 12 of those. Most of them have a rivalry game with an in-state SEC school so that would be a h to h game. Then work in the schedule to have a set # of h to h games, roughly 4-6, it would be somewhat optional (this would cut down on the 8 played h to h games now). This might alleviate some of the strain to get games in and keep the OD going strong. There would be tricks that might need the ACC teams to be moved to one division to even out h to h games or something but that 's something I haven't looked into. Now for the fun part. Instead of having to mainly fight off Florida and UGA for those FL recruits, Miami and FSU would be recruiting FL hard too so recruiting battles would be vicious. I can only imagine how intense this would get. I still remember getting some HB in 09 that LSU & UGA were all over too. I miss those battles. Like I said, this is just an idea I had that would likely help me be involved in the OD again. Not trying to run things, just trying to run things by you. I wanted to discuss it more with Lans aka itsnotagame, but thought "what the heck?" This is a discussion board, and I miss it too, so let's discuss!!! Please offer any opinions or ideas.
