Air Force Coach Troy Calhoun Floats G5 Playoff Idea
But "playoff creep" has never been a topic involving Group of Five teams. Air Force coach Troy Calhoun has an idea that would change that. In essence, he wants a four-team Group of Five playoff, the winner of which would then move on to an eight-team College Football Playoff featuring the five Power Five conference champs plus two wild card teams. The Colorado Springs Gazette explained Calhoun's theory ...

The P5 has no intention of expanding the playoff in order to provide G5 guaranteed access

Make no mistake, any expansion of the playoff will be about money.

It would be a fun event...IF it didn't lead to any sort of situation, or a hypothetical possibility of a Boise run or Utah or TCU run of past dozen or so seasons allowing for those teams get into the current 4 team playoff. Non power teams who would likely have played in the 4 team playoff if it had existed:

2004 Utah team--12-0 Fiesta Bowl champs
2008 Utah team--13-0 Sugar Bowl champs
2009 Boise team--14-0 Fiesta Bowl champs
2010 TCU team--13-0 Rose Bowl champs
Those teams do don't belong in any 4 team G5 playoff, they belonged with the big boys in the Big Boy Playoff.

Top two G5 play for the Access spot could happen.

Just take the top G5 Champ like they do now for the access to a playoff.

NO NEED to have a separate G5 Playoff and get 1 or 2 games of getting beat up before playing in the 8 team playoff.

Thats where I think we are basically headed. Eight team playoff. All 5 P5 champs AQ. Top G5 champ AQ. Two wild cards. First round on the home campus stadium of the higher seeded team of each match-up. First round played the week after Championship Saturday. That extra round basically just snaps onto the existing structure.

I hope so. You wouldn't get any argument from me about that setup.

Couldn't disagree more. Only 2010 TCU team would have had any shot of beating top 4 team.
