What place are the G5 teams that can’t win a national championship playing for? An undefeated Sun Belt team wouldn’t make the playoffs.

See UCF. A 12-0 record and winner of the AAC gets you a game in the Peach Bowl playing for a place among the teams ranked 5th through 130.

Look at their non-conference schedule.

Alabama plays in a big boy division in a big boy conference. 

You said look at their OOC schedule, cause it was pretty weak this season.

Everyone is playing for first. Difference between wouldn't make the playoffs and not being allowed to make the playoffs. They do use criteria. 7-4 Northern Arizona makes the playoffs to compete for 131st while 9-2 McNeese State stays home.

Alabama doesnt need to schedule a difficult OOC. They already play several good teams. UCF plays nobody, period.

UCFis ranked higher than any team Alabama beat.  The Crimson Tide lost their only game against a team currently ranked in the Top 15.

Does anyone in the world think UCF is legitimately a top 4 team?

ndsu2 vs jsu3

jmu1 vs UCA4

The FBS season is lit. FCS has 6-5 at large teams.

This article says that the CFP payout would go increase by $2.8 billion if the playoff is expanded from four to eight teams.  High level FCS schools should be welcoming the change and move up to FBS as FCS is a money pit.  The FBS payouts will go up even if your in a low level FBS league.

So 4 to 8 P5 teams. No G5 teams will ever be in the playoffs. You will have an 8-4 Ohio State team in the playoffs before an undefeated MAC team will get in. Its all in the $$$ and the g5 isn't in that picture. FCS teams should just stay put until the FBS splits and the g5 gets their own playoffs.

So you would have the best FCS teams move up for a paycheck but in the process they become irrelevant and get lost in the shuffle.

The FBS for all intent and purpose has already split off when they told the NCAA what they wanted and the NCAA folded up like a cheap suitcase and gave them autonomy.

 

It would be nice if the G5 would have its own championship but they are too worried about staying on the FBS money train to keep their irrelevant programs alive.

How do cheap suitcases fold up compared to more expensive suitcases?

Cheap suitcases are like expensive tents. Now cheap tents are a whole other matter.

Oh no.
We are NOT rehashing the chaise lounger incident in '83 again.
No way.
Heard enough about that from you already. :D

She surely didn't want to be in the Big Sky that long.

She must have seen the writing on the wall that the Big Sky wasn't merging with the WAC.

Heard she left to give the BSC an insider in the CFB Playoff office for when the conference moves up.
