RE: Potentially The End Of G5 Football As We Know It
This could result in more players being willing to start out at a G5 school in order to get the playing time, or to learn under a coach who is known for teaching fundamentals.

Of course, some of those players will jump to a big-time school after a year or two (though some will probably stay). So it becomes a kind of one-and-done situation where they are leaving for P5 schools instead of the pros.

Unless they stay at a school like Boise State that wins. It is no guarantee that they will become a starter at a P5 school if they are like 4th or 5th in line. At least you still be a starter at QB at the G5 schools.

Could work the other way too. What if a 2nd string QB at a P5 isn't getting any play time. He could say screw it an just jump to a G5 as a 1st stringer.

It will definitely result in P5 schools using the G5 as a farm system of sorts. For instance, if (fill in the blank P5 school) has a player has a guy leave early for the draft, get significantly injured, have some offf the field issue that results in suspension/expulsion etc. it would be extremely easy for them to pluck right from the cream of the crop in the G5 to fill in that gap.

Possibly, but likely it would be the third string guy instead of the backup That second stringer knows he is just a concussion or one bad game away from take snaps away from the #1 guy.

One other thing, in addition to the G5 the lower tiered P5 schools should be wary of this rule as well. If for example, an under the radar guy tears it up at a Washington State, Kansas, Rutgers, etc. he could easily be poached by a higher tiered P5 school.

Remove the linkage between the sports teams and the academic institutions and reclassify them as professional teams. Surely this squashes any naive belief that the revenue sports are anything but about school pride and a celebration of amateurism?

The Renaissance man is dead. Long live the specialists!

Definitely will hurt the entire down-stream pecking order: Top P5 will poach from lower P5, lower P5 will poach from upper G5, and down the line.

Yes, but 9 times out of 10, it will be a better player going from the G5 to the P5, and a worse player going from the P5 to the G5.

E.g., in your scenario, if that P5 second-stringer is any good at all, he's going to another P5, not a G5.
