Conference games:4x8=32 games
Non-conference games 2x27=54 games
Total games: 86 games
Too high a % of games outside the Conference. 57/86 = 66%
Even if you did it as 2 Divisions per Conference, that still means 42% of games outside the Conference. Now 42% wouldn't be too bad if you're talking inter-Conference Playoffs after the 2nd Round.
