Eliminate bowl bids and evenly distribute teams

Hey I became interested in starting a dynasty that reshaped and redefined the conferences and there bowls.

1. No automatic bids for conferences
2. Evenly distribute(as best I can can) all 126 teams into conferences to eliminate the Power 5 stigma in the game.
My question is:

By spreading the teams evenly across all conferences, eliminating bowl ties;

3.will this allow recruits to view alabama who could be in the sun belt and arkansas state who's now in the Sec as virtually the same when it comes to conference prestige?

4. Will the bcs judge the teams as before (sec leaps and bounds ahead of the mac) or by doing this can Akron actually make the championship when its in an even conference with say ohio state michigan and notre dame?

For example:

There are 5 great conferences and 1 good conference
(ACC B10 B12 SEC PAC12) (American)
And 4 mid conferences
(CUSA MAC MWC SUN BELT)

The 5 great conferences have roughly a combined 64 teams.

The American conference has 12 teams

The 4 mid conferences have a combined 50 teams

My plan would be to distribute the 64 power teams into the 10 conferences, as well as the American teams, and the mid teams.

My goal is to try and give every team a realistic shot at winning a conference that matters and a legit championship shot.

If you have tried this or have any suggestions please let me know.

Re: Eliminate bowl bids and evenly distribute teams

I'm assuming you're talking about '14. One of the many improvements in '14 is dynamic pitches, one of which is conference strength. This means that every week the conferences are ranked from best to worst. This is determined by taking the average ranking of the top 6 teams in each conference.

This means that to begin, you can have all 10 conferences start out exactly equal. After that, (just like without monkeying with conferences) the best conference will be the one with the 6 teams that are ranked the highest.

Re: Eliminate bowl bids and evenly distribute teams

Conference wise they're the same to recruits, but Alabama will still be a 6* prestige team, while Akron is 1*. Alabama's other pitches (like history, coach prestige, TV exposure, pro potential, championship contender, facilities, etc) will be higher, so recruits will still favor them.

Re: Eliminate bowl bids and evenly distribute teams

I'm in the middle of setting up an offline dynasty using this method.
10 twelve team conferences
6 teams independent
I'm dividing it up using prestige and geography. Just something different to do.

I have become OBSESSED with this dynasty I JUST started, I was in the same boat as you just a few months ago, until I stumbled upon the thread:Geographic Conference Realignment and found this AMAZING idea!

(=protected crossover opponent)

With these conferences you get geographical benefits and many rivalries stay intact. Also, there is a championship game for every conference.

The American Conference is unique, in that it is just the top rated private universities and service academies. Notre Dame gets the bulk of it's rivalries and annual games are protected as well. So, for example, every year one of the fixed non-conference games for Stanford is Cal. Same for USC, which will always play UCLA.

This works for many other teams as well. Alabama will have a non-conference slate that always includes LSU and Mississippi State.
Credit again to vgunn!

I had to wait till Alabama won the natty last night to officially start it so I am only getting passed simming to 2018 (In case you're wondering I used default rosters with jkits sliders while using luca blight's main menu/dynasty settings with threshold at 47 for both mm/dynasty. I also have the coach progression setting at slow. I made sure each champion won each year 13-17 to stay true to the realism from the coaching prestige/program tradition/team prestige aspect) so I'm officially diving into this dynasty and so far I am enjoying it!

Re: Eliminate bowl bids and evenly distribute teams

I didn't something a little similar to the OP. I listed teams in decent location/ areas. The I randomly picked them for that conference. So, some SEC teams might be in the Big East (playing NCAA 12), some ACC teams might have landed in C-USA. Some weaker teams might teams from lower conferences might be in the BiG XII now. Some powerhouses might have be in lower conferences now. I think I will do away with bowl tie ins. See how it works out.
