Previous studies have explored the dynamic between member schools and the conferences to which they belong, particularly regarding optimal alignment and profit maximization. Conference members have to decide whether switching is worthwhile, and as a conference they seek to determine the optimal structure. This paper seeks to explore the relationship between the number of teams in a conference and additionally to control for the geographical makeup of the conference. This can be built upon to help determine if there is a shift in the dynamics underlying conference alignment and to help determine optimal conference size and structure.
