Playoff would have to go to 12 or 16 teams for a G5 team to even get a shot.

Potential injuries happen everyday, as likely in practice as games. As for TV viewers, we watch in mass even the 1 vs 16 games in the MBB tourney so I'm guessing you're in the minority. Money will make the eventually decisions, and it will likely start at going to 8, then 12 & then maybe 12 or 16.

No, I watch those just like every other red-blooded American sports fan. College football does not equal college basketball. It’s an entirely different animal.

No college FB isn't college BB. College FB generates about 3x the revenues of college BB because so many more folks are watching & attending.

And it’s far easier to put a group of five starters and a few backups on the court than it is to put 22 starters, go two deep and have special teams added into the mix. MAC teams are woefully unable to do that compared to SEC, Big 10 teams that say “hold my beer”.

I'm confident the MAC would take that game & lots of folks would attend & watch.

I’m confident the MAC would take that game, so we finally agree on something. :) I’m also confident an Alabama would never agree to such a game. There’s the rub.

Alabama plays tomato cans every year I would bet they are their lowest viewed and attended games of the year...Unless the tomato can is their home opener.

AL averages over a 100K. Their fans will just about watch them play a high school team. Recall Saban ranting last season that students aren't showing up & staying thru the 2nd half. Tough situation.
