FTFA: The same goes for Michigan, which like Miami has not made it into the College Football Playoff and has an even longer national championship drought than the Hurricanes. But say GO BLUE and everybody knows you are referring to the team in Ann Arbor.

This would be like giving Portugal a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council because they're in the history books for having a brief period of relevancy.

I'm sure the SEC teams would love to play multiple late season games in the north. You have to include some west coast teams if you are using 'brand' as a factor. Too much $ in those markets to leave them out.

But that would destroy the rich tradition of the November SEC/FCS Challenge.

In their defense, while everyone else that plays FCS plays them before October, they wait until then usually and play other decent teams in September, and then uses the FCS game as a little break before the last couple of big games. It's still FCS but they just do it differently than everyone else is all.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:

Every team plays 12 games, 8 conference games, and 4 non-conference games.

BUT

The non-conference games are set up in a Promotion / Relegation fashion.

There are 120 or so teams in Div-IA / BCS level.  Split them up into six 20 team Tiers.

Each Tier has four divisions of five teams, and they will play each other, 2 home and 2 away.

At the end of the year, your playoffs are the top four teams from each division in Tier One.

And what does the 5th place team end up doing?

They play the division winners of the lower Tier.

(And then rinse / repeat for the lower Tiers.)

Now you'll have non-conference games that actually mean something, (no more Citadel at Alabama blowouts) and if a school is naughty, they can be dropped a Tier (or three) and they can work their way back.

Downside is that in-state rivalries (Iowa - Iowa State comes to mind) would require special dispensation to continue.

And Notre Dame would have to suck it up and join the Big 10.  (Conference realignment would be 'troublesome'...)

But what do I know?

I think the list of teams for which that is true is...

Notre Dame and UCLA.

(Washington and USC fell off the list in the last decade)

I just added up the totals. I was stumped by that too.
