I'm going to list everyone in the PBL based on the assumptions I just read in the ABA board about ABA defections, plus the assumption that Jacksonville will be folded and Arkansas will not (since there has been no indicator other than some posters vague rumblings that they're in trouble). For clarity (and because I like it better) I will call the Dallas entry the Texas Tycoons.

Your mission would be to break this group into divisions and figure out a schedule formula (For example: four home and away for everyone in your division, eight games out of your division and a different eight home from outside your division)

Vermont
Manchester
Quebec
Montreal
Toronto
Rochester
Buffalo
Reading
Maryland
Wilmington
Arkansas
Texas
Chicago
Rockford
Quad Cities

Have fun.

I think you will see Halifax in the PBL next year.

This is bound to get a little more interesting isn't it?

Wolff Conference :-D
(Okay maybe National/American or Liberty/Freedom or if all goes well with the CBA...Premier/Continental)

-Northeast Division-
Vermont
Manchester
Quebec
Montreal
Halifax
-Eastern Division-
Toronto
Rochester
Buffalo

Newman Conference :p
-Southeast Division-
Reading
Maryland
Wilmington
-Central Division-
Arkansas
Texas
Chicago
Rockford
Quad Cities

Some sort of unbalanced schedule. Mostly divisional/Conference games.
Tack on a few outside of the conference to make it interesting. In a 26
game season. At least 8 and probably 16 games within the division. Smaller
divisions would obviously have to play less -- and more outside of the
conference.

Truth be told -- I don't see all 3 Illinois teams back, let alone Texas or
Arkansas. If this is just for fun, I may also want to include Jacksonville
(who is still on the PBL website).

If a CBA merger happens it would really make things more interesting, division
alignment wise...

Bigger question for now: How many games? Will the season start earlier?

Those conference names made me laugh.

It will be interesting to see if the PBL chooses to go with
an "All Canada" division. It helps with travel, but tends to divide the league
into an "us/them" template....

Also, I'm sure the Illinois and Michigan teams would probably
be better suited in the same division.

No Rockford in the PBL this season. That is official. Unless there is a new ownership group.
