I remember those days very clearly. For sports fans, USAT was a vital source of information from about 1983 to about 1998.

The liberty bowl was more than willing to have this agreement to hopefully get Memphis in at the first opportunity. So it's not so much that Memphis got lucky as much as the Liberty bowl was able to use it's contractual exemption to finally land Memphis. A liberty bowl spokesman has also stated that in order to get the SEC tie-in they had to go with the big12.

If the Liberty has been so desperate to 'land' Memphis, why was Memphis unable to deliver the LB to the AAC, and why did it take 55 years for Memphis to play in it?

One of the best lists I have seen in a long time. I can't believe Frisco only pays 100K for both teams.

http://www.collegefootballpoll.com/bowl-schedule/

So I counted 30 spots for G5 teams...only a few (maybe 4?) made more than 1 million dollars for the team...most made less than 500k per team. The CFP New Year's Six bowl got UCF 4 mil.

G5 fans...you're saying that you couldn't make "roughly" 35 million (more than your current bowl revenue) to have a 15-game tournament of your top 16 teams...situated perfectly in the post-conference championship game...pre-Christmas window.

Seeing that Memphis got paid over 2 million to play Iowa State (the dregs of the P5) in a no-stakes game, I can't fathom a world where the G5 couldn't get 2 million dollars per team for a playoff...and a lot more for their semifinal and finals.

To do it—you’d have to give up 85 million from being part of the CFP. It’s rigged and stacked against the G5–put it pays waaaay better than the BCS for 4 of the 5 G5 conferences. Yes, the Big East/AAC is the only conference in FBS that took a pay cut under the new CFP agreement.

The championship...put it on the Friday night BY ITSELF...before the first weekend of the NFL playoffs and three days before the CFP championship...and it would make HUGE money. Huge...not so much because everyone loves Houston vs. Boise State or UCF vs. Memphis or Western Michigan vs. Temple but because it's a TRUE championship game...and it's football. This is can't miss TV.

What were your favorite moments from the FCS playoffs, then?

G5 football is higher quality overall and has more fans/alumni. You could also ask me what my favorite Single-A high school state championship game was and I couldn't tell you either...because it wasn't televised nationally on a highly advantageous time slot.

Every G5 conference had more players drafted by the NFL than all of FCS combined. Draft numbers look similar to the P5 if you remove the 15-20 biggest programs.

G5's need to cooperate to get some better bowls with the P5 for their champions to open up recruiting more. There is nice product in the top 10-15 programs. Below that they are lucky to be in a bowl game.
