There can be only four
I'm still not sure the 20 team league isn't the "goal". There's an easy sale most of the Big 12 schools. Head west. You take the entire group (minus WVU and someone else) that 8 puts the PAC at 20.
You would have a glorified 6x10 with 2 spots for "Upsets", "Cinderellas", and Notre Dame.
Top 2 of each pod moves on to the "qualifying" then proceed with 8 team playoff seeded much like NCAA basketball tournament.
If 20 is the goal ACC and Big East still die as football conferences.
SEC 14 now: FSU, WVU, Va Tech, NC State, TCU, and This is the tough one #20.
B1G 14: Virginia, UNC, Notre Dame, Ga Tech, Kansas, Miami (if B1G Network could get on in Florida talk about $$$ from snow owls)
PAC 12: Texas, TT, Oklahoma, Ok St, Kansas State, Baylor (keep from sueing), ISU, then one of Boise, SDSU, Hawaii, Frenso, Colorado St, UT (insert letters here), Tulsa, etc depending on how the pools look.
That leaves the ACC with Clemson plus the Big East schools as the "anchor" I don't see that mess of schools doing anything EVER in football.
