Pub you need to History of conferences on here that would be a good subject
That's something I have alot of interest in seeing happen. If anyone is interested in taking part in such a project, let me know.
Basically, we would seperate all the D1 schools, based on their present conferences, into groups that each interested individual would research. There would be some crossover, but it would still limit the amount of work that any 1 person needs to do.
What would have to be done? Simply figure out the history of a conference. It might mean checking a few online resources (there is a decent 1A football histroy link on th elinks page here) but it might also mean visiting a few message boards for the applicable schools, and ask those fans for some info.
What would you get in return? You'd get to show the other posters on the board here that you know your stuff. But you'd also be able to get a "Research
Associate" credit from CollegeSportsInfo.com should that be of any assistance in any aspiring professional life.
I'll copy/paste this message into an PM next week to guage interest. But feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and I can start breaking down the conferences into smaller groups.
