RE: Power 5 Leaders Exploring Possibility of Staging Their Own Fall Sports Championships
One veteran college administrator described the NCAA and Power 5 as having long been embroiled in an "existential crisis," and wondered whether this fall sports gambit could be "the crack in the armor" that leads to an eventual split.

"Is this the final break?" The source asked. "You could have two championships: one from the (Power 5) and potentially some Group of 5s joining them, and a second one for everybody else in the spring. ... It's going to be real strange.


Strange things are most certainly afoot at the Circle K. The P5 have spent these covid months scheming and gaming these scenarios out. Opportunities like this don't come along that often. They get to reset the board on their own terms and claim it was forced on them by the pandemic or the inept NCAA.

The G5 and FCS will take whatever scraps are thrown their way. Like they have a choice.
