    For the 4th year of my dynasty I'm making doing some conference realignment. I've already moved TCU to the Big East (taking them to 9 teams) and I've moved Nevada, Hawai'i, and Fresno to the MWC. TCU has dominated the Big East and BSU has dominated the MWC so I'm changing things around. I'm moving BSU and Nevada (the 2nd strongest and 2nd highest prestige team in the MWC behind BSU) to the Big12 to take them back up to 12 teams. I'm also moving the Big East to 12 teams by adding UCF and Southern Miss from C-USA and adding Miami from the MAC.

    I've split up the divisions as below. I tried to split them up by geography, but more important was to split them evenly by prestige and OVR (which means OU and Texas in opposite divisions for potentially great conf. champ. games). This made geography divisions tough in the Big 12. I'm looking for some good division names for these conferences. The Big East is pretty much divided by East and West, but I don't like the Big East-East. The Big12 teams aren't really north/south anymore.

    So, what would be some good division names for these conferences?

    BIG EAST
    Team Prestige OVR
    TCU 5 94
    Miami (MAC) 4 78
    USF 3 92
    Southern Miss (C-USA) 3 80
    Cincinnati 2 83
    Louisville 1 86
    AVG 3 85.5

    Team Prestige OVR
    Syracuse 4 80
    WVU 3 91
    Pitt 3 83
    UCF(C-USA) 3 83
    Rutgers 3 80
    Uconn 2 84
    AVG 3 83.5


    BIG TWELVE
    Team Prestige OVR
    Texas 5 95
    TTU 4 88
    Baylor 4 86
    TAMU 3 91
    Kansas 3 83
    KSU 3 81
    AVG 3.666666667 87.33333333

    Team Prestige OVR
    OU 6 95
    BSU (MWC) 5 89
    Nevada (MWC) 4 86
    OSU 3 88
    Mizzou 3 84
    ISU 1 78
    AVG 3.666666667 86.66666667

    Why don't you put UCF and WVU in the other division and move out Miami and Cincy...North and South

    I'm trying to balance the divisions. Right now the top Big East division has a little mroe talent (85.5 vs. 83.5). If I were to swap out WVU and UCF for Miami and Cinci, I'd be making the top pretty heavily loaded by adding in a 91 and 83 while removing an 83 and 78. This would put all of the 90s in the same division.

    I've been so tempted to change those (I play as Michigan) but the best I've been able to come up with (although I didn't make it up) was Great Plains vs. Great Lakes which isn't really much better.

    I changed Legends and Leaders to a hockey-like Yost and Hayes division.
