Appendix to A Radical Proposal

Previously, I posted an outline of my proposal to fix college football, here is what it looks like (don't pay attention to the teams, they can be moved around and could finish anywhere within the tier, I only payed attention to wether a team was tier 1, 2, or 3 (and that was done a few years ago), and then to what region they would fit in):

Tier 1 A (South)Tier 1 B (East)Tier 1 C (Midwest)Tier 1 D (West)
FloridaPenn StateOklahomaTexasAutomatic Bid to Round Robin Championship

After the 9 game regular season taking place over 10 weeks, here is what week 11 would look like:

Week 11 would also include the first of the three games in top to middle pro/rel groups.  Based on the above regular season, this is how those groups would look:
