2 "power" teams per pod - so the balance is good

I agree with the 9 games and how you divide the other games, the only problem is that semifinals are a bad deal. First, you increase the likelyhood of a rematch - boring. Secondly, just more chances to get a playoff team knocked out.

Instead of a semi, you create 2 divisions composed of 2 pods, the divisions then rotate. You play your 3 pod teams, the 4 teams from the other pod in your division then your 2 rivals from the other 2 pods. I have a breakdown of the advantages here:

     Ain't going to be any semi-finals - TigerMook MU - 5/18 14:47:37
          IMO, The SEC should have an East & West Div, winner - MU-TULSA MU - 5/18 15:41:41
     Still the best idea and similar to ACC plan - alwaysright MU - 5/18 13:49:14
          NCAA rules are changing - TigerMook MU - 5/18 13:50:49
               Which is what allows that concept to work more - alwaysright MU - 5/18 13:54:36
     After I looked at it again it looks like - JayHoaxH8r MU - 5/18 12:42:56

          No chance. The best pod for MU that might, maybe be - alwaysright MU - 5/18 15:58:53
          This is my favorite. (nm) - Lerxst MU - 5/18 15:01:31
          Geographically, that would make the most sense. - GeorgiaTiger76 MU - 5/18 13:43:21
               I don't agree - Genco98 MU - 5/18 15:05:19
          There's zero chance that is happening(nm) - Mormad MU - 5/18 13:05:51
               There is no way Missouri is get in a group without - Genco98 MU - 5/18 13:19:36
                    I think the original guess was pretty close - Mormad MU - 5/18 13:30:39
     Also, ZERO chance they play nine conference games and - alwaysright MU - 5/18 11:17:14
          Yes, that's why they'll need some way to determine - dangertim MU - 5/18 12:08:42

                    I bet Drink trains in that ****(nm) - dangertim MU - 5/18 12:30:59
          My guess is they cut divisions/pods altogether - TigerMook MU - 5/18 11:41:15
          Agree (nm) - Cosmo MU - 5/18 11:26:47
               That can all be hammered out in the next CBA.(nm) - Fool on the Hill MU - 5/18 11:32:13

     There was an article recently that suggested pods might not - alwaysright MU - 5/18 11:13:29
     I think pod is a stupid name. How about containment unit - SabertoothTiger MU - 5/18 10:53:31
          should call them "families" because it just means more - phrejd MU - 5/18 11:11:09

     I like it, but I have a feeling they're going to swap - kmawv8 MU - 5/18 09:36:52
