American Champion
Mid America Champion
Conference USA Champion
Mountain West Champion
Sun Belt Champion
First highest ranked none conference champion.
Second highest ranked none conference champion.
Third highest ranked none conference champion.

On the downside, Group of Five would no longer be a 1A member, stuck between 1A and 1AA. Question would it be worth it? 07-coffee3
No. We are FBS. People need to stop trying to demote themselves for dollars.

Once again, I say that if he wants playoffs so badly he can drop out of the MAC and move to the FCS.

Yup. Any program no longer interested in the FBS bowl/4-team playoff system is free to move to FCS. 24 playoff teams, autobids for every conference that wants one. Why create a third football subdivision within Division I?

A G5 Championship game or playoff would more than likely end up with one or both teams, in any given game, without a coach.

Riveting... given the extremes that could have (sarcasm).

P4 plus new subdivision is the only viable formula. We need a P4 first.

I'll support a G5 playoff if it meant...
Recruits start coming to G5 schools in a big way
Lots more tv time
More money
Increased fan support in the stands
Then hell yeah !

I believe if Houston had not shot themselves in the foot last season, they would have been in the CFP.

The G5 would give up $135-$150 million in CFP/bowl money. Is a G5 playoff going to replace that?

Houston didn't shoot them selves in the foot, I think it was more like injuries and 5 games in 29 days
