or maybe both teams are ranked highly and both games are good.
it just seems with any setup, the muddy waters run deep.
You can't have it both ways. Either you put them in in the same division and possibly not have the two best teams meet in the championship game or you put them in different divisions and run the risk of either having them play twice or not at all.
Let's just call a spade a spade. It's a money grab and the championship game is basically a big money maker. There's no law that says they have to seperate the conference into divisions but they have to keep up with the Joneses or be relegated to irrelevancy.
