Pratley Sports College Football Playoff Proposal

Yes, I need a hobby. I get that. This is what happens when you stop actually coaching college football and have time on your hands. I really think I may have come up with a solution. 
 
Here is my solution to the College Football Playoffs and the age-old debate on who should get in. I know big money runs the show, but I think this would make everyone else happy. The match-ups are now more local which allows fans to travel to see their teams play each week. Also, every team has a "chance" to qualify. Here it goes. (Stay with me, it's long......and feel free to rip it apart with INTELLIGENT conversation, but I would love to open the debate.)
 

THE PLAN:

 

4 Regions

2 Conferences per Region

4 Divisions per Conference

 

THE PLAYOFFS

 
2 Division Champions play for a Conference Championship
2 Conference Champions play for a Regional Championship
4 Regional Champions play i n the Semi-Finals
Non-Playoff Teams Bowl Eligibility Rules will apply
Bowl games played as normal

 

THE SCHEDULE

 
Teams will play a 12 game schedule
7-8 Division games required. Teams have flexibility to schedule rivals or cupcakes for their non-division opponents.
Non-Division games will count for tie breaker
Non-Conference games will count for a tie breaker
Playoff games begin the first weekend of December
Division Champions head to the Playoffs
Non-Division Champions head to Bowl Games
