Every school plays 13 games.

11 schools in a conference allows for 10 conference games. Then you have 3 OOC games - with a minimum 2 against P5 schools.

OK, you could do all of that without breaking down FBS further.

I'd go for just ten P5 games total, I like conference CGs myself.  But I'd enjoy it all either way.

I know people like the CCG and the money it generates from TV. My view is that if you have more desirable matchups over the course of the entire season, TV will pay more for that content. 13 games for all schools, rather than 13 games for 10 schools.

I'm sure most would agree that a Rutgers-MSU game is far more desirable than Rutgers-Temple, and worth a lot more money to advertisers.

I would be ecstatic to see my school play the entire B1G every year. Instead, we are fed this crap.

Most things I hope for are at least marginally realistic in terms of having a chance to actually happen.

Bigger is not better.

My deal is not going to happen. It's a dream, at best, to get back to college football as a grew up loving. Can't say I love it anymore. I like it still, but not like before.

Better games for the fans.
More losses for their teams, too. 

(not that that’s a bad thing, but it’s an attitude adjustment most won’t make)

Well, I'd rather lose to Michigan than beat Maryland.

I added the new rules. It's done.
Finish that Iowa Great Lake and I'll 2nd that motion
I’ve reached that age where my mind goes from “You probably shouldn’t say that.” To “What the hell, let’s see what happens.”

Alas, being happier with honorable losses and worse records is a minority opinion.

Ya I'm not so sure remember the kerfluffle when Miami,VTech and BC left the Big East and Joined the ACC and all the arms were up in the air.A new super football conference everyone opined.With grid iron giants Miami,Seminoles and seemingly VTech emerging.
Uhh, who opined that???

Teams still schedule "Div 1-AA" opponents, I don't see this kind of change would alter scheduling at all.

It seems like paperwork, unless I'm missing something.
Under this model, you'd have 3 tiers instead of 2.  I'll use the current names to avoid confusion.

FCS teams would be the lowest rung.  They can no longer play P5 teams.
G5 teams are the middle rung, and can play 1 level up (P5) or down (FCS), with a majority of games being against each other (G5).
P5 teams are the top rung, and can only schedule down to G5, and you could legislate a limit on that.
.
So the paperwork would be on top of a net benefit of no P5 teams playing any current FCS teams.  As fans, I think that's a huge plus.

The weird thing is that for the 11-team conferences thing to actually happen, you'd have to root for continued growth to 22-team conferences of two 11-team divisions.  That's wacky, but still more realistic than conferences voluntarily contracting.
.
We could do it with 66 teams - 3 super-conferences of 22.....and all we'd have to do is ignore the 4 new Big 12 additions.  That'd be 66.
.
The 3 conferences could sign a mega-TV deal and split al the money evenly.  The PAC+Big 12 incarnation, with the B1G and SEC splitting the ACC.  The PAC is in a weird spot.....it's actually sort of saved by its geography.  It's surviving this recent bout of irrelevance and is always included in future scenarios.
