What do YOU think about the future football scheduling for the ACC? Give us your opinion.
Click through for explanations of the poll options.
For background, see these articles:
- SEC-ACC scheduling alliance? The SEC and ACC going beyond the four rivalry games to add 10 more games between the other 10 ACC and 10 SEC schools. We can call this the 8 + 1 proposal.
- Then, there is simply going to 9 conference games.
- There is also the Five Conference scheduling alliance proposed by the Confidential. All five conferences agreeing to fair and balanced OOC matchups between schools with regional commonality.
Also, BenDNole over at TNIIAM had this comment/proposal:
My solution is this:
Pod 1: FSU, GT
Pod 2: Miami, Clemson
Group A: UNC, UVa, Duke, UofL, BC
Group B: NCSt, VT, Wake, Pitt, Cuse
Pods 1 and 2 always play each other as cross-divisional rivals.
Then, you rotate divisions:
Year 1/2: Divisions are 1A and 2B
Year 3/4: Divisions are 1B and 2A
Each team in Group A and B would have 1 permanent crossover game (aligned vertically in my example. UNC/NCst, UVa/VT, Duke/Wake, UofL/Pitt, BC/Cuse). The other crossover game for teams in Group A and B would rotate between the remaining 4 teams.
Teams would average only 4 years (maximum) between meetings. Every school would play a Florida team every year. And every team would be play the Atlanta team every other year, on average.
And then, of course, there is the status quo.
