    If so, maybe we could move the teams round somehow fix that. I just don't want to see the UNC-NCSt series be discontinued.

    The big problem the way I see it is that UNC has 3 games that need to be preserved and UVa has two and one of them is with each other. That's a lot to work around.
    Maybe I'm wrong but with my plan everyone will play everyone in a TWO-year cycle. And we can do it with 8 conference games. ACC is a 14 team conference, so each team has 13 foes. If each team has 3 rivalry game which plays every year, that leaves 10 foes for 5 open slots (if we have a 8 conference games). So we can play everyone in a two year cycle.

    For odd years UNC will play
    UVA, VT, Duke, Miami, BC ,CUSE, UL, WFU

    For even years, UNC will play
    UVA, VT, Duke, FSU, Clemson, GT, Pitt, NC State

    For odd years UVA will play
    UNC, VT, Duke, Miami, BC ,CUSE, Pitt, NC State

    For even years, UVA will play
    UNC, VT, Duke, FSU, Clemson, GT, UL, WFU

    For odd years UL will play
    Pitt, WFU, NC State, FSU, Clemson, GT, VT, UNC

    For even years, UL will play
    Pitt, WFU, NC State, Miami, BC ,CUSE, Duke, UVA

    Rivaly:
    VT - UNC, UVA, Duke
    UVA - UNC, VT, Duke
    Duke - UNC, VT, UVA
    UNC - VT, UVA, Duke
    WFU - NC state, UL, Pitt
    NC State - WFU, UL, Pitt
    UL -WFU, NC state, Pitt
    Pitt - WFU, NCSTATE, UL
    Miami - BC, Cuse, FSU (cross rival)
    BC - Miami, Cuse, clemson (cross rival)
    Cuse - Miami, BC, GT (cross rival)
    FSU - Miami (cross rival), Clemson, GT
    Clemson - Miami, GT, BC (cross rival)
    GT - Miami, Clemson, Cuse (cross rival)

    With my example, NC state and UNC series will have to be discontinued. UNC can have UVA, Duke, and NC state. But then UVA-VT rivalry will be discontinued...

    I'm not a math major but I think the following may work:

    3 anchor teams on each division. And 2 pods of four teams switching a division each year. Each anchor team will have one cross rival, and rotate a team from the other anchor team. Each team in a pod will play two teams in the other pod.

    One example.

    Coastal Atlantic

    Miami FSU
    BC Clemson
    Cuse GT
    Pod 1 Pod 2

    Pod 1: VT, UVA, UNC, Duke
    Pod 2: UL, Pitt, WFU, NC State

    For odd years VT will play
    UVA, UNC, Duke, Miami, BC ,CUSE, UL, WFU

    For even years, VT will play
    UVA, UNC, Duke, FSU, Clemson, GT, Pitt, NC State

    For odd years, Miami will play
    BC, Cuse, VT, UNC, UVA, Duke, FSU, Clemson

    For even years, Miami will play,
    BC, Cuse, UL, Pitt, WFU, NC State, FSU, GT

    Each team will have three guaranteed rivalry games (every year matchup), and will play all conference foes at least once a two years. Would it work?

    I could work. It's a variation of the 4 POD idea. In the 4 POD scenario, the Florida Teams would have 8 games. Each of them would have a designated Rival in each POD as well. They would play the 2 PODS in their division for 6 games and each of the designated rivals in the other 2 PODS in the opposite Division for 8 games.

    Any of these are better than 7 team divisions where you only play a team from the other Division once in 6 years.
