SB Nation Conference Re-Draft: Twelve Rounds Complete

Updated USA Today rendering of Twelve Pack's dominance.
Updated USA Today rendering of Twelve Pack's dominance.

We've now completed twelve rounds of the SB Nation Conference Re-Draft. Here are your round 12 results.

Round 12

-- Red Cup Rebellion: Central Florida
-- House of a Thousand Sanctions: Georgetown
-- Big East Coast Bias: Kansas State
-- The Empire: Fresno State
-- Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants: Villanova
-- Twelve Pack: Northwestern

The Twelve Pack was thrilled to nab Northwestern with the 72nd pick in the draft. Northwestern gives us another school with strong academics in one of the largest TV markets in the country. Between Minnesota, Wisconsin, Purdue and now Northwestern, the Twelve Pack has the Chicago market on lock. The 'Cats also give the Twelve Pack a solid up-and-coming football program under coach Pat Fitzgerald.

Though the Wildcats are famous for being the only major conference basketball program to never make the NCAA men's basketball Tournament, we're working on it (though we aren't doing the 'Cats any favors by adding them to a conference that includes Duke, U.C.L.A., Texas, Purdue, Wisconsin and Washington).

Northwestern makes 12 for the Twelve Pack and at the risk of opening ourselves up for jokes about our conference name, we're stopping at 12 programs. The Twelve Pack finishes with four Big Ten programs, four ACC programs, two Pac-12 programs, Georgia from the SEC and Texas from the Big 12.

We'll have a 1-2 more posts for this project in the next week or so to wrap this up before the season begins. We'll have profiles of Washington and (hopefully) Northwestern as well as a post announcing the divisions, Championship Game location and the schedule.

In the meantime, head on over to Sippin' On Purple to welcome the newest member of the Twelve Pack.

What do you think of the Twelve Pack? How would you break up the conference into divisions? Where we hosting the Championship Game?
