Stockstill was quoted in the article but fortunately no mention of his record
There are 85 scheduled P5 vs. G5 games this season, five more than last year but still fewer than the 92 played in 2019.
How bad do us little guys get hosed?
It'll be one G5 team, if we are lucky…
Looking at the history of the CFP rankings, In 8 previous years, only 5 non-P5 schools would have made the 12 team playoff. UCF and Cincinnati account for 4 of those 5 and both are heading to the B12.
So of the true G5 teams that are not already in the “in crowd”, only Coastal Carolina in 2020-2021 would have snuck in as a 12 seed.
yea, that could easily push conference payouts up about 2 to 5 million per team more for the G5This is why as some said above, the G5 won't split off. It would be nice if they would but I get the reasons they won't. That $ figure is unreal.
An expanded College Football Playoff could reap annual media rights fees of up to $2.2 billion annually from multiple TV partners.frontofficesports.com
It's the 6 highest ranked conf champs, and then 6 at large
Nope...Pac 12 is left out.Well let me throw a theoretical out there.
SEC, ACC, B1G, B12 Champs are all ranked in top 10.
Oregon wins P12 (10 or whatever it will be) at 9-4 and is ranked say 16th with two losses to ranked teams.
UTSA wins the AAC at 11-2 and is ranked 15th with wins over two P5s, one ranked say 20th.
App State wins SBC at 11-2 and is ranked 14th
with a win over UTSA for example.
So, in that scenario, no guaranteed bid for the P12? Hope for an at large. Interesting. Yes rare stars align etc etc. But still.
