Conference Realignment (Part 6):Making the Pac-12 into a super conference (My Pac-12 realignment and what should happen in the next realignment)

As this series of What if I was a college football god has become the most popular,I have decided to rename all of my posts about this in these following blogs:https://carterbhuffsports.com/2018/08/19/if-i-were-a-college-football-god-part-1-big-12-edition/,https://carterbhuffsports.com/2018/11/22/what-if-i-could-do-conference-alignment-from-the-start/,https://carterbhuffsports.com/2018/11/23/what-if-the-big-12-disbands-and-where-would-each-school-go/,https://carterbhuffsports.com/2018/12/17/what-if-i-was-a-college-football-god-part-4what-if-college-football-had-eight-power-conferences/,and https://carterbhuffsports.com/2018/12/18/what-if-i-was-a-college-football-god-part-5the-perfect-realignment-in-the-acc-if-notre-dame-and-some-other-school-joined-in-all-sports/.Disregard my post about making the Big 12 into a super-conference and take my post about where each school in the Big 12 would go if it disbanded into because in this series of posts about making each,now,power four conference in super conferences.

The Pac-12 would add Texas,Texas Tech,Oklahoma,and Oklahoma State from the now disbanded Big 12.That is all the Pac-12 would add but they would start something called the pod system.A team would play every team from their pod and would play every other team from one pod in 2019-2020 and would play the other two by 2020-2021 and 2021-2022.In the other pods that a pod wasn’t playing,they would play the teams from the other pods who finished in the same standing that they did in their pod.

Central Florida’s winning streak would end at the hands of Alabama.Let’s just end it there.Predicted Score:Alabama 49,Central Florida 28

4.Ohio State vs. 5.Washington
Dwayne Haskins and the Buckeye offense is too much for the Washington defense as he throws for three touchdows.Predicted Score:Ohio State 28,Washington 20

3.Oklahoma vs. 6.Notre Dame
Notre Dame’s defense holds Oklahoma’s offense to a field goal at the beginning of the fourth quarter to give Oklahoma a two point lead,33-31.Ian Book and the Notre Dame offense go on a ten minute scoring drive that ends the game and puts Notre Dame in the semifinals.Predicted Score:Notre Dame 38,Oklahoma 33

2.Clemson vs. 7.Georgia
Georgia wins on a field goal after getting a pivotal stop at the two minute mark.Predicted Score:Georgia 34,Clemson 31

1.Alabama vs. 4.Ohio State
Alabama spurns Ohio State’s not so good defense in a comeback win with two passing touchdowns by Tua Tagovailoa in the fourth quarter.Predicted Score:Alabama 27,Ohio State 23

6.Notre Dame vs. 7.Georgia
Georgia blows out Notre Dame led by a great rushing attack and Jake Fromm starting the game 17-17 passing as well as Georgia holding Notre Dame to their least amount of points of the 2018-19 season.Predicted Score:Georgia 49,Notre Dame 13

1.Alabama vs. 7.Georgia
Georgia lost to ‘Bama once,but Jake Fromm leads a game-winning drive in the closing seconds to beat Alabama and become the National Champions.Georgia 28,Alabama 27

Players rankings are according to the 2019 ESPN 300.

1.Alabama Crimson Tide
Early Signing Period Review:Bama is at the top again with two months to stay at the top before the late signing period.Despite losing the top safety in the country early on Wednesday in Daxton Hill to Michigan,the Tide landed the number two ranked safety in the ESPN 300 in Jordan Battle who flipped from Ohio State who he had been committed to since June.Five star running back Trey Sanders from IMG Academy signed with the Tide on Wednesday as well as ESPN 300 tackle Evan Neal.

2.Georgia Bulldogs
Early Signing Period Review:Again the fight for the top of the class rankings resides between three SEC schools (Bama,UGA,A&M).Landing LB Nakobe Dean,the number twenty-three ranked player in the ESPN 300 was huge for the dawgs.

23.Nakobe Dean OLB Hornlake,MS Hornlake High Signed

29.Brian Williams S Dallas,TX Bishop Dunne High Signed
64.DeMarvin Leal DT Converse,TX Judson High Signed

38.Mazi Smith DT Kentwood,MI East Kentwood High Signed
