Ken’s Prime Number Pattern Theory

I know this is not a football article but I did say I studied math. Here is my Prime Number Pattern Theory. This is a little hard to understand and I did not use perfect math language but it is the best I can think of to be both technical and simple at the same time. For those of you that are interested in prime numbers you will see some familiar numbers if you know the Mersenne prime number.

(2^N)-1=prime when N=(2^n)-1 for n=2

(2^2)-1=3= prime

(2^((2^2)-1))-1=
(2^3)-1=7= prime

(2^((2^((2^2)-1))-1))-1=
(2^7)-1=127= prime

(2^((2^((2^((2^2)-1))-1))-1))-1=
(2^127)-1=170141183460469231731687303715884105727= prime

(2^((2^((2^((2^((2^2)-1))-1))-1))-1))-1=
(2^170141183460469231731687303715884105727)-1= incalculable large number (for now) =prime

(2^((2^((2^((2^((2^((2^2)-1))-1))-1))-1))-1))-1= even bigger prime number

And so on…

Conference Realignment: If I Had a Say

I have seen a lot of other people make conference charts showing how they think the conferences should be realigned, so I figure I would join them by making my own conference realignment. The first 8 teams in a conference I would put in the same division as well.

I’d like to see how you would realign the conferences. Leave a link to your thoughts.
