Maybe it's time for some progressive thinking...


What if the ACC went to pods next year with 14 teams? They could be laid out like this:

  • Pod A – BC, Syracuse, Pitt
  • Pod B – Maryland, Wake, NC St
  • Pod C – VT, UVa, UNC, Duke
  • Pod D – Clemson, GT, FSU, Miami

For Pod A, play the other 2, plus 2/3 of Pod B, plus 4/4 of either Pod C or D
(Pod B does just the opposite) 2 + 2 + 4 = 8 games

For Pod C, play the other 3, plus 2/4 of Pod D, plus 3/3 of either Pod A or B
(Pod D does the opposite). 3+2+3 = 8 games

You get to play the teams in your pod every year, and you only have to play 8 games per year (allowing for 4 non-conference games for extra revenue). Plus, each player gets to play every team in the league home & away before he graduates – assuming he stays all 4 years.

What do you think? I describe the whole thing in detail on my blog – LINK.
