    I'd envision 6 teams in each bracket. The 5 P5 Conference champions and 1 at-large. The 5 G5 Champs and 1 at-large.



    This would be a fair and really exciting Playoff.
    No it wouldn't be. It'd be like taking the top 6 teams in the NFL and have them play and have 7-12 play and give a ticket to a team in the bottom 7. It'd be like making 1-8 in a basketball regional play and having them match up with a 9-16 to get to the final 4. In what world should western Michigan have an easier path to the national champ game than Washington.

    What it is, is the prelude to another separation between the top of the G5 and the bottom that has been privately discussed. Some of us have discussed it somewhat on Ragin Pagin. Once that happens, you might as well play FCS Football.

    There you have it boys....1-AA relabeled. What utter BS. "National networks interested"...I don't know who won the FCS championship other than NDSU got knocked out. Nor do I give a flip. And neither will America.

    That will never happen. Pigs at the trough, no room for the "runts" of G-5. They just expanded to four teams playing for the Championship. Just more money at the end of the day. And the big boys don't want to share anymore.

    If this happens the next thing will be for the big boys to raise the number of scholarships they give out in football, basketball, baseball etc.

    This is a no win for us.

    And the REAL truth is that maybe only 1 in 30 have a realistic chance.... yea the Vandebilt's, Kentucky's, Wake Forest's and the likes have a theoretical chance but year in year out it is only a small, similar handful that are really in the hunt.... The finances in the P5 are widely varying also....Truth is there is Top P5; Bottom P5 and G5

    We already have something worthless to play for, with a (long)shot at a magical moment in an NY6. Give me that over a "cher, look how cute" playoff any day.

    This is bullcrap.

    The playoff format should be changed to include all conference champions and a few at large selections. FBS should be FBS.

    Stupid idea conjured up by people who want the demise of the G5 and the those who are in it.

    I just read a SBNation article, it talked about making a 4 team G5 championship tournament with same criteria as the existing CFP.
    You keep all other bowls the same.
    They had Boise St vs Temple and USF vs Western Mich.

    At least gives G5 teams and actual title chance but doesn't give a total break away which would be damaging beyond repair. Also, bowls stay in place.

    For 1 team! Sunbelt team will never even get that opportunity. Western Mich loses one game, which by the way, they did against Ok St. Refs blew it and admitted to blowing it. They got more than lucky.

    An undefeated Sunbelt would lose out to a 2 lost American champion or 1-2 lose MWC ever year.

    Definitely don't stay pat, keep searching for better and more access to the best that can be accomplished in College football. Don't settle for lower tier, and 2nd class.
