i wonder how much better our conference would be after a few years of a 24 conference game schedule

i don't know as though there's a direct correlation b/w conference games and injuries

i do know that the better your competition, the better you become. i think we should do it, the b12 would be breeding some players

I say we play a pre conference season tournament in KC for a week over Christmas, kind of like the old Big 8.

However, it won't be like the end of season conference tournament which we have to keep. The first 2 days the teams are split into 2 five team pods and they all play each other. That's 4 games. Then you have 2 four team brackets for cross pool play according to how you finish in your pool over the last 2 days. The 2 worst teams left out of the brackets play a 2 game series. All these games count for your record before conference play starts. You award 3 trophies, 1 for the top bracket, 1 for the next bracket, and 1 for the worst loser.

Bam, 6 more games to get 24 for everyone.
