    Not a bad idea to try something. Pretty creative. Not sure it ultimately does anything tho.

    The article also suggests high major conferences try it

    Horrendous idea

    Yeah, I don't think conferences that have a high number of strong teams would benefit from such a schedule at all.

    I think conferences should play every other team in a double round robin format every year...home and home. You need to go into every other teams gym and beat them. But I'm an old fart traditionalist so what do I know. Huge conference advocates don't deem things such as that important and have shot that type schedule right out of the water.

    If I understand the idea correctly, that means if your travel partner is also in top 4 and you also face that team in the conference tournament, you'd be playing them 5 times that year.

    A circus really...
