  • Division II Imperialism Map: 2021 Edition

    https://i.imgur.com/TM2kBZF.jpg

    Above is the base map, which has a few changes from the 2019 edition. Gone are Azusa Pacific, Dixie State, Florida Tech, Minnesota–Crookston, St. Cloud State, Tarleton State, Urbana. New additions to the map are Allen, Barton, Bluefield State, Edward Waters, and Erskine. (Emory & Henry is not on the map because they play no D2 schools this year; Post is playing a club schedule.)

    When I first started doing this in 2019 I didn't really know what I was doing when it came to image editing. My skills have improved a ton since then; not only doing this, but also working on flairs for /r/CFB. I also tried harder to find the logos for each school that best worked with the coloring of the map.

    I should probably add a clarification for those who aren't familiar with the concept.

    College Football Imperialism was invented in 2017 by Reddit user nbingham196. Each county is assigned to the closest football team. Whenever the owner of a county loses, that county is transferred to the team that beat them. As the season goes on, there will be fewer teams with land; in 2019 a total of 8 teams had land on the final map (West Florida, of course, had most of it).

      As you know we don't have any D2 football programs left in SoCal and Western New Mexico doesn't have a fan base here. I guess you had to pick a team and I like the Mustangs logo, so good choice.

        It will be interesting to see if the LSC owns it all at the end with the scheduling Alliance.

          I always thought this was a neat concept. I wish the teams were spread out a bit better, especially in the SW US - that would really make it interesting.

                    As much as I would like to see Shepherd cover the entire map, I’m not sure how they ended up owning a slice of northern Michigan.

                    This map is awesome and your efforts to put it together are appreciated! I can imagine it’s quite the undertaking.

                      Gannon beat Northwood, then Shepherd beat Gannon.

                        So, if a team loses are they gone from the map for good or if they beat a team with land, do they return to the map?

                          They return to the map. Several teams have done that already: Davenport, Findlay, Kentucky Wesleyan, Oklahoma Baptist, West Chester.

                            In theory I could see them getting their own territory back too. For example if Team A beats team B, Team C then beats team A, then Team B beats Team C they would get their initial land back and ironically Team A's who beat them.

                              I figured it was probably something I was overlooking; and that's it. Thanks!
