Conference Realignment That Makes Sense: Part 2 With a Twist

First of all, before trying to read this article go ahead and go down and make it a single page view.

I wrote two articles about six months ago, one proposed a tournament for the BCS National Championship with other realigning the conference to where they geographically make more since. The two articles are listed here and here.

 

Using my tournament formula of having the 10 conference champions automatically getting a bid and then taking the remaining top six and seeding them accordingly one thru 16.

The picture above should give you and indication of the championship game.  I used the 2009 preseason rankings from nutshellsports.com to help me figure out the my results as far as where all the teams would end up. 

Just thought it would be fun to combine these two ideas and see what I could come up with.  Listed below are the outcomes of the conference championship games and the BCS Tournament.  Hope you enjoy.
