What if the ACC went to pods with only 14 teams?

What if the ACC went to pods next year with 14 teams?

They could be laid out like this:

•Pod A – BC, Syracuse, Pitt

•Pod B – Maryland, Wake, NC St

•Pod C – VT, UVa, UNC, Duke

•Pod D – Clemson, GT, FSU, Miami

For Pod A, play the other 2, plus 2/3 of Pod B, plus 4/4 of either Pod C or D

(Pod B does just the opposite) 2 + 2 + 4 = 8 games

For Pod C, play the other 3, plus 2/4 of Pod D, plus 3/3 of either Pod A or B

(Pod D does the opposite). 3+2+3 = 8 games

Ex. Maryland would still get to play NC St and Wake Forest every year, plus BC, Syracuse and Pitt 2 out of 3 years; ALL OTHER ACC TEAMS would be 2 out of 4 years! (That's right - with this plan you'd play Miami & VT, as well as Clemson & FSU home & away every 4 years).

Each player would get to play every ACC team home & away before he graduates – assuming he stays all 4 years.

There would only be a need for 8 conference games per year, leaving 4 non-conference games for Notre Dame, Navy, etc. What do you think?

I describe the whole thing in detail on my blog – http://accfootballrx.blogspot.com/2012/07/what-acc-can-do-pods-now.html
