G5 Conference Rankings?
After 5 weeks, I see it like this...

1. AAC- 6 teams with winning records (3 undefeated), plus 2 ranked teams (USF & UCF), 1 team at .500, and 5 teams with losing records

2. MWC- 6 teams with winning records (1 undefeated), plus 1 ranked team (SDSU), 2 teams at .500, and 4 teams with losing records

3. C-USA- 5 teams with winning records (1 undefeated), 4 teams at .500, and 5 teams with losing records

4. MAC- 4 teams with winning records, 2 teams at .500, and 6 teams with losing records

5. Sun Belt- 1 team with a winning record, 4 teams at .500, and 7 teams with losing records

Thoughts?

Well, you might want to learn about it quickly. It's contractually your only potential path to a meaningful bowl game.

It's not G5 or p5 , that is just propaganda
Technically it's really this
5 playoff conferences with autonomy
5 nonplayoff conferences

I think you have the MAC undervalued. They have a lot of wins over the Power 5. I'd put them at #2. In the MWC there is San Diego St and then a huge drop off--plus both Nevada schools lost to FCS.

True. Maybe we should call them the Cartel, and the non-playoff conferences the "Blue Collar" conferences.

I don't know... the MWC and C-USA also have wins over the Cartel. Yes, the MWC has some terrible bottom feeders this season, but every conference does. Remember Bowling Green is 0-5, with a loss to an FCS program. And at 1-4, Kent State has yet to beat an FBS team. Only 4 of the MAC's 12 teams are above .500. In my opinion, right now the MAC just isn't worthy of a #2 ranking.

If you average out Sagarin division rankings you get the AAC followed by the MWC, MAC, C-USA, and Belt. A clear gap between the cartel and everyone else.

The MAC isn't good at the top this year, but we don't have as many bottom feeders as usual. BG and Kent are awful but there's a bit of space between them and the next tier up with the likes of Akron and Ball State. We'd be in the argument for two if we had another team step up like WMU last year or if we pulled out a couple of close losses (e.g. NIU vs BC or SDSU, Miami vs UC or Marshall, EMU vs Kentucky, Ball State vs Illinois, Akron vs Troy).

To be fair, it's more like this:

1) AAC (2 teams ranked in the Top 25)
.
.
.
.
.
2) MW
.
3) CUSA
4) MAC
5) SBC

There is a HUGE gap...qualitatively...right now between the AAC and all the other "g" conferences.

The AAC is really the only tweener conference these days.

In the BCS era the MWC, CUSA and kinda sorta WAC were tweener conferences.

MWC 2.0 is actually weaker than the WAC of the BCS era.
