A few scenarios...


At a high level, there will never be a perfect selection in college football as there are never enough games in a season, and schedules are always unbalanced (unlike professional sports which has more games and is often more balanced).

Scenario 1: If you have 4 "pods" then Pods 1 and 2 can be in a division, and pods 3 and 4 can be in a division. The pods could rotate yearly, or they could always be fixed. With 2 divisions, the winner of each division is determined based on conference record with a tie-breaker of head-head, or common opponents, or ranking.

Scenario 2: Flatten it all, and just choose the two teams with the best conference record overall. I personally like adding objective computer rankings to prevent a team with a much easier conference schedule being selected over a better team with a harder schedule, but I don't think that would be well received by fans.
