Madness is the emergency exit. You can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. You can lock them away... forever.

I do not see the P5 giving up ANY of their monopoly status or diluting it with G5 programs - It is ALL about the $$$.  Perhaps after every P5 program has gold-plated toliet seats and locker and weight rooms from marble and brass, they may consider a G5 if it would make their payday easier.

The legal ramifications of not providing a certain level of access I think will force their hand to keep a path open for G5 conferences.

Have a G5 Playoff, & call it "The REAL National Playoff" just out of spite.   :))
CHP sold out.  I declare Nick McEntyre our Chancellor-In-Exile!

Southern Miss beatwriter Pat Magee offers his 2 cents on the G5's place in an expanded CFP.

Auburn was 2-2 against teams in the playoffs, and was on the verge of making it themselves. UCF stood toe to toe with them and came out on top. They made a strong statement for acess today as Auburn is a legit playoff caliber team.

Maybe we can hope that the exclusion of two of the P5 conference this year will motivate expansion to 8.

However. I doubt that the powers that be will guarantee a spot for the top G5 team.

The expansion to 8 would occur to meet the interest of the P5 conferences which would all miraculously have at least one team in the top 8 rankings each year.

The current model takes the top 4 teams into the playoff so I would assume they keep that model and the G5 would continue to be shut out. Even and undefeated UCF would not have made the top 8 and there is no reason to think the rankings would be any different if their were 8 spots. Those valuable playoff spots would be coveted by the P5 teams and thatís who will get them.

You can make a case that expansion to 8 and the continued failure of the G5 to access even that expanded playoff would actually widen the gap at least from the perspective of the general public.

ďThey arenít even good enough to make an 8 team playoff.  How good can they actually be???

I'm not in favor of an 8 team playoff simply because I think they will just slot 1 G5 team and then give them the worst possible matchup. Kind of like how the committee does Wichita State every year. I also think it waters things down. I already think we have too many bowl games and half don't mean anything anymore.

I would be interested in a G5 playoff however.

Big time sports media will always promote what they think will make them the most money. So, that's either talk about the biggest names, or talk about the teams that play on their network. They are also constantly promoting the idea that players should get paid because they bring in so much money for schools, when most schools actually lose money on sports. Don't get me wrong, I do see a valid argument on why Alabama, etc. should pay their players but that ignores the reality of most programs. Which brings me back to my first point, they are not going to recognize that because it doesn't fit a narrative which will bring in money and ratings.

Judy would brag about us going to post season if we were in a CUSA 14 team playoff.

Frost will change his tune once he settles in at Lincoln- His AD will make sure of that.

PS: Here's all you need to know from the current 'Godfather' of college football-"..Alabama coach Nick Saban has been saying for a while he prefers the Power Five play only itself."

The CBI and CIT pay tournys - you have to buy your way in no matter your record.  I am kinda of surprised we haven't played in them just so Judy could claim post season.

Can't afford to do that when SHE's spending all of OUR money on employees that don't work here anymore.
