Conference Suggestions for Mizzou Fans in NCAA Football 12

So this is what it's like to play God. (Screen courtesy IGN.com)

It's not much of a secret that many of us here at Rock M Nation are avid fans of EA Sports' NCAA Football franchise. It is for that exact reason that this article from IGN has us quite excited for NCAA Football 12, especially the following feature:

When you setup a Dynasty, you have control like never before -- you can make and break conferences.

Now, sure, you could customize conferences in NCAA Football 11, but that was really just a swap. You could switch a team out of a given conference, but you had to put another in its place. This year, you can do whatever the hell you want. You can take the Big 12 and drop it down to four teams or go nuts and crank it up to 16. You can set it so that your conference only plays weekday games, name the divisions, and even mess with who gets to go to which bowl. NCAA Football 12 gives you the keys and lets you drive the game wherever you want it to go.

Since the game doesn't drop until July 12, that leaves us quite a bit of time to start brainstorming a number of quirky conference ideas that might resonate in the Columbia/Jefferson City media market. How about we give it a test run, Missouri fans?

THE BEVO 10 CONFERENCE

Set-up: Two divisions, with the champions of each playing in a title game held at "neutral" sites in either Arlington, Houston, or San Antonio. If there are venue conflicts, the game can always be held in Austin, too.

Texas Division: Texas
Not-Texas Division: Baylor, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State

 

THE "ONLY 16 TEAMS WITH BETTER WINNING PERCENTAGES THAN MIZZOU SINCE 2006" SUPER CONFERENCE

Set-up: Four 4-team divisions, with the winners of each advancing to a two-round conference playoff. Semi-finals to be played at the home-field of the higher seeded team and the title game to be played at a venue dead in the center of the country (hey Lebanon, Kansas -- start building a 100,000-seat facility).

 

Leaders, Legends and Flammable Furniture Pod: Ohio State, Wisconsin, Penn State, West Virginia

Antitrust Firms on Retainer Pod: Boise State, TCU, BYU, Utah

Deep Fryers and Lunch Pails Pod: Florida, LSU, Auburn, Virginia Tech

Chip Brown's Pac-16 Pod: Oregon, USC, Oklahoma, Texas

 

 

THE "SELECTED TEAMS WITH LOWER WINNING PERCENTAGES THAN MIZZOU IN THAT SAME TIME FRAME" CONFERENCE

Set-up: Two divisions, with the champions playing a title game at the original Orange Bowl, the Seattle Kingdome or Texas Stadium. If none of these venues are available for some odd reason, see which field the producers of Antiques Roadshow prefer.

Titles Since 1995 Division: Bama, Miami, Florida State, Tennessee, Nebraska, Michigan
Otherwise of Note Division: Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Pitt

 

THE BIG JAY NIXON CONFERENCE

Set-up: The teams can play a best-of-seven or something. At the end, Gov. Nixon will award the winner a trophy resembling a box of crayons.

Not Wisconsin Division: Texas Tech
Not Northwestern Division: Oklahoma State

 

 

THE RECENT BOWL OPPONENTS CONFERENCE

Set-up: DOUBLE round robin, if only because we'd love to see the vitriol of an Iowa-Northwestern home-and-home in the same season.

Teams: Iowa, Navy, Northwestern, Arkansas, Oregon State, South Carolina

 

THE WHAT JUST HAPPENED CONFERENCE

Set-up: Two six-team divisions, with the championship to be played somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle

StunnedFans.com Division: San Diego State, Bowling Green, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Troy, Iowa State
Losing by 50+ Still Hurts Division: Clemson, Kansas State, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Indiana

 

THE "LET'S MOVE YOU UP TO FBS SO BILL HAS EVEN MORE PREVIEWS TO WRITE FOR SBNATION.COM" CONFERENCE

Set-up: Round robin format. For retinal protection, Eastern Washington must play all games on the road.

Teams: Eastern Washington, Villanova, Richmond, Appalachian State, James Madison, Delaware, UMass, Northern Iowa

 

THE "TEAMS KANSAS BEAT IN CONFERENCE PLAY IN 2010" CONFERENCE

Set-up: None. Just a reminder of the hilarity involved with both programs in 2010.

The Only Division: Colorado
