So we have 130 FBs schools, well that’s too many for one league, so why wait and see what the A5 decides to do, it’s time for the G conferences to be proactive and make the first move here…

People will LOL at this, and of course it isn't happening, but there is more than a modicum of sense in this idea.

G5 schools are in the worst position in the college athletics firmament. They lose the most money off of athletics each year of any NCAA division. And it's because of the "need" to spend spend spend to keep up the facade that they really are in the "same league" with the Alabamas and Ohio States of the world. But without the operating revenue to support it.

Break away, and remove that pressure, and you probably save your students about $10 million a year easy in fees and subsidies and transfers from the academic side. Yes, you lose some revenue, but not nearly as much as you would save. That's why FCS schools run about $10m a year less in operating deficits than G5 schools.

One could argue that Cincinnati's team isn't as good if they willingly make the invisible line between themselves and the P5 a brick wall.

One could also argue that they would have had more trouble making a CFP appearance in a different, lower league.

All speculation of course. I also am purely speculating when I say that the OP isn't volunteering his team to cancel their big 12 move to be part of the big G5 breakaway.
For your information I have always say in these threads that I want houston to stay in the AAC and everyone else, going to the b12 is a gamble, will the b12 stay a power conference? Who knows, I have zero connections to those teams there and I’ve been following cougars sports for 50 years
I think the A5 is a trashy rigged system, starting with the way the network contracts are structured, then there’s the 4 year old legal gamboling, “ gezz what could go wrong there” “ see ref Manipulation “, then if that’s not enough control they have a “ selection committee “
I think it was jrsec that said some sec games have $50m riding on that one game and the refs make about $1,500 per game so It’s ripe for corruption

Houston is doing the right thing. Besides, we'll see you in in 3-4 years when we can kick off the Continental conference's #Continental5ower campaign to prove that there are actually FIVE power conferences. Sun Belt fans will come on our boards to remind us that we're still lowly G6s. Baylor will spend themselves into bankruptcy, drop football to FCS to join a basketball only conference and defend it as a good idea. TCU fans will talk down to all of us despite never having won anything deserving enough to be in a power conference, and will continue to do so, reminding us that they were #3 for 46 minutes a decade-ish ago, even as SMU comes in, outplays them in rivalry week every year, and earns an invite to whatever the future G conference we'll all be in next. World keeps turning.
