HUH? The idea of divisions/conference will be gone. Conference 1 (whatever it winds up being called) will have nothing to do with Conference 2. In the 80s, Patrick Division winner played Adams Division winner in the 3rd round. Not going to happen under this plan. 4 division winners would be re-seeded in the 3rd round.
