Can I duplicate groups contain Smart Objects but Make a New S.O via Copy for the same time?

I'm trying to make somethings like a league schedule with logos (a smart object (S.O) can change the logo), each group for one game. Then I duplicate the group, but all the S.O are linked (change one is change all), I have to use Make a New Smart Object via Copy for every single S.O and it takes some times. 

 

CAN I DUPLICATE A GROUP, THAT ALSO MAKE A NEW SMART OBJECT VIA COPY FOR EVERY SINGLE S.O IN THE GROUP, FOR THE SAME TIME?
