There is a lot of talk on these boards on why such and such conference is bad and so forth. I'm just curious on how people on this board would create a great conference. It's easy to play back seat driver. In great I don't mean being the next top conference. I am more looking at how to be a great mid major conference. How would you recruit member schools? Why would they want to join? What buy out clause would you include? What makes the conference more unique than other choices? How do you keep good schools (BU, SBU) from leaving? The key thing is how do you do this on a limited budget? Who knows maybe we can create a new conference, this is still America right?
