ACC releases new scheduling format without divisions

At first glance I'm not a fan of playing Syracuse every year but it's not too bad.

quote:

In 2023, the ACC will adopt a 3-5-5 football scheduling model and all 14 schools will compete in one division.

Teams will play 3 primary opponents annually + face the other 10 teams twice during the 4-year cycle, once at home and once on the road.

No Louisville v Pitt and no Miami v Va Tech seems a bit strange. I guess Va Tech vs Wake makes sense...eh, doesn't matter, the ACC is all jacked up, anyway.

I thought FSU would have gotten Georgia Tech. The Syracuse pairing is really odd as I feel like they’re a better fit with Louisville, who randomly got Tech.

Love that Georgia Tech gets Clemson every year

They cannot escape their yearly destruction at the hands of Dabo and Kirby* (frick u covid for taking away COFH in 2020)

Hopefully. As long as Kentucky doesn't mess everything up.

Why not be more "regional"? The ACC leadership is incompetent for sure.

If I am Wake I am pissed that Carolina is not one of my permanents. That is a historical rivalry and forms the tobacco road which is ACC history. I know Carolina wanted Clemson or UVA and was not going to give up State or Duke.

I don’t think the poster was saying the ACC is crap because they have a 3-5-5 schedule. I think he’s saying they are crap because they aren’t a good conference

If the SEC went to 3-5-5 there would be hurt feelings I think

I mean LSU would lose out Alabama, Auburn, Florida, or Ole Miss yearly I would think.

I think that it would look something like what the ACC did, one or 2 historical and some random game there.

SEC has pretty much stated it’ll be a 3 permanent or 1 permanent opponent.

Knowing the rivalries that the SEC has in place that generate tons of revenue, it’ll likely be 3.

So do I (unironically). Even with Tech being a dumpster fire it would be a crime to end that annual series.

I, for one, will be glad to see the death of divisions. The 2 best teams should be competing in the conference champ game.

I think 3 is going to be very hard to do.

I like 3, do not get me wrong, but all teams want to play each other, but the scheduling and not killing other rivalries is going to be hard

For LSU you have aTm who will get Texas and Pig for certain. and Ole Miss who will get State and probably Arkansas you also have Alabama who everyone wants, and Auburn who will want UGA and Bama. It is going to be a mess, somebody is going to be left out. Just like the ACC left out Wake for Carolina and Tech for FSU. Just the absence of a specific permanents make some hard feelings in the fan bases etc.

It’s really not that bad. For the “non-rivals” you still get to play them twice (home and away) in four years.

Clemson’s first away trip to Pitt was this past year and Pitt joined in 2013.

So what does Notre Dame get in this deal? They get special rule that they can pick whomever? Because by contract they are to play half the ACC.

It's being reported that the SEC has been going around and around for months now, going through around 30 scheduling models for these two:

An eight-game format where teams play one permanent opponent and seven rotating opponents (1-7 model); and a nine-game format where teams play three permanent opponents and six rotating (3-6). There are two essential goals in the remake of the scheduling formats: (1) Have SEC teams play every league team twice—home and away—every four years; and (2) Pit the top two teams in the conference in the title game, hence the elimination of divisions.

Personally, I hope the SEC decides for the 9 games and leans more on showing off the best league in college football. Divisions or pods are a little less important to me.

Getting the absolute 2 best teams to Atlanta every year is a must.

Been saying the SEC needs to adopt this exact format
