Not gonna happen... Start from scratch. Divide the country into 5 regions: Atlantic, South, Midwest, Southwest & Pacific. Use geography. Put the best 14 schools in each conference. 2-7 team divisions. 9 conference games. Conferences can decide if they need cross-division rivalries or all the Cal schools need to play each other or not. Out of conference, game 10 is against another BCS conference, 11 is FBC, 12 is FCS.
