    Think you will see a decrease in FCS vs P5 games but there is no way the P5 can exist without the G5

    P-5 programs are for the most part financially built/set. Problems with ESPN will affect ALL negotiations with all conferences financially in a negative manner for most. Possibly the days of the McNeese's of the world playing P-5 are coming to an end and Mid Majors may NOt make as much on their money games but numbers wise will continue to play P-5 . P- 5 unless they add more schools per conference and or go to P -6 or P-7 the numbers just don't work. I just don't see the P-5 decreasing the number of games they play per regular season, unless they cut back to 10 regular season games and add to the Playoffs!

    I can see NO way that the 60+ P-5 teams EVER agree to REDUCE their number of games from 12 to 10 to add 8 or 16 teams to a play off.
    The reason: the only teams this may help would be those 20-ish who might - by chance make the "Round of 16" (and really 10-ish who are in contention every year for the National title).
    The other 40-50 (the Iowa States, Illinois, Vanderbilts, Wake Forrests, ect) will have to loose TWO big sources of revenue....

    There should be a 10 conference FBS with no distinction between P5 & G5. Have a 16 team playoff, like they do in FCS, with 10 conference champions and 6 at large teams. That will give you the most fan interest, not what Saban is proposing.

    Agree w/tdncz, except you would never get the p5 schools to agree to split the $$ evenly w/5 more conferences.


  8. Support This year's 'guarantee games' worth $150 million for college football programs

    The college football season gets underway in earnest Thursday night, and by the end of the weekend more than $70 million will be headed toward schools' pockets regardless of how many hot dogs are consumed or who wins the game.

    Nearly all the games_are occurring between teams from different conferences. That means they are not being governed by conference scheduling, but rather by individually negotiated contracts. Usually made years in advance, these deals almost always include an appearance payment to the visiting team -or, in the case of increasingly numerous neutral-site games- a multi-million-dollar payment to each team.

    Playing Alabama should require a $2mil appearance fee.

    Saban said this morning he wants to play only p5, whats stopping him? Has he said this to his ad or prez and they refused (hard to buhleeve)Talk about do as i say not as i do. Meanwhike his conference has only won two of the last ten true non conf road games vs p5. I think that is the real answer
