CFB conference scheduling

Northwestern and Rutgers as our permanent rivals? Thanks for the chip shots, guys, but I think we'd rather have MSU and Illinois. 

Good concept overall though.  Not sure about the execution in this particular B10 example, but good concept.

Yeah, I highly doubt the "author" actually knows IU football.  But like you I love the concept.

This is what I came up with when I tried the same thing. I couldn't figure out how to make the numbers come out so I added a fourth team but originally I had the first 3. I like the pod system better though. Much better than East/West divisions and best chance to get more than 1 team into the playoffs and I feel best chance to get your 2 best teams to play each other in the conference championship.

Pods:

Indiana-Purdue, Illinois, Ohio St., Maryland

Purdue-Indiana, Northwestern, Michigan St., Penn State

 Ohio ST,-Indiana, Michigan, Penn St., Rutgers

Penn St.-Ohio St., Rutgers, Maryland, Purdue

Maryland-Penn St., Rutgers, Michigan St.,Indiana

Rutgers- Michigan, Penn St., Maryland, Ohio St 

Michigan-Ohio St, Michigan St., Rutgers, Minnesota

Michigan St.-Michigan, Maryland, Purdue, Wisconsin

Northwestern-Purdue, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota 

Illinois- Northwestern, Indiana, Iowa, Nebraska

Iowa-Northwestern, Illinois, Nebraska, Wisconsin

Nebraska-Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois

Minnesota-Wisconsin, Nebraska,Michigan, Northwestern

Wisconsin-Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan St.

Edit...I can't quite figure out how he did this with 14 teams..14 isn't divisable by 3 so someone could help me but anyways I like that better as with the SEC...the B1G is not balanced schedule wise MOST years.

How ever they can do away with the divisions, I am cool with.
