    Five years for a CCG when your GoR and TV contract run for eight? Like I have been saying for two years, the Big12 is a dead conference walking.

    Good news for us. This sniffs of Texahoma four going to Pac-16, leaving either us and Kansas to B1G or at least we joined a weakened Big 12.

    Pac 12 Commissioner says that expansion may not be over....

    I think it’s likely you’ll see more expansion, more consolidation over time,” Scott said Wednesday at the Learfield Intercollegiate Athletics Forum in New York, hinting at the possibility of 16 super conferences that have been dreamt up previously. Scott suggested the next round of media rights package negotiations could spearhead those discussions about expansion as conferences look to jockey for the best bargaining power with media partners. The Pac-12’s current contract is due to expire in 2024, to which Scott suggested “We’ll be in a very unique position.”




    Pac-12’s Larry Scott says expansion may happen again, but unsure how soon

    2 sources: @uofcincy to name @uofl's Neville Pinto permanent president; was UC graduate school dean until '11
    Sources: Neville G. Pinto to be named University of Cincinnati's new president

    >>Pinto is interim president at University of Louisville, but he has deep roots at UC, beginning as a professor of chemical engineering in 1985 and working his way up to dean of the graduate school.<<

    >>If approved Saturday, Pinto will be UC's third in 2016. Santa Ono left UC to become president and vice chancellor at the University of British Columbia. Interim President Beverly Davenport accepted an offer to be chancellor of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. She will remain at UC through January.<<

    There was never going to be an expansion after the ACC got their "network".

    It was all a charade to get more money now from ESPN and Fox, aka the pooch, without screwing the pooch and getting less money down the road

    It was all but confirmed as such by the reports of who was present (or not present) at school presentations and how uninterested the Big 12 officials seemed.

    Nothing to see here.

    If this does come to fruition, it would effectively make a Div IA (or CFP), a G5, and FCS divisions...all with their own playoffs.

    This would acknowledge the split away of the CFP programs, create a middle weight championship class. Would it have any deleterious effect? Or is it all good?

    It is far from good and considering that it occurred after a season where some evidence existed that the right G-5 school could break through has me baffled that this is coming from a G-5 school.

    There are pros and cons to both sides of the argument. From a business side of things an AD could view a G5 Playoff as a means for their financially strapped athletic department to generate more revenue. They know that ESPN would broadcast it and people would watch it.

    At this point in time there are only a small number of G5 Programs that are set up long term to compete for the access bowl bid on a yearly basis. These schools have resources and use them. Schools like Boise, BYU, Houston, Uconn, and Cincy have the infrastructure to sustain success. However if you are Bowling Green, North Texas, or Utah State you need a once in a lifetime season where everything goes your way in order to have any shot. To these schools the guaranteed income of a playoff might be very attractive.

    Being realistic the gulf between an Ohio and Ohio State or Troy and Alabama is so vast it is like they are competing in a different classification already. JMO but the gap in resources is far greater between the top and bottom of FBS than between the top of FCS and the bottom of the G5. That is why we see movement on that borderline. Some realize its hopeless to compete and move down, others try to elevate their programs. Ultimately I think we see the top G5 Programs move into the P5 either as additions to existing conferences or as an entirely new one. The less solvent G5 Schools will absorb the top FCS conferences in a new classification and compete for this G5 Playoff.

    I imagine that quite a few within both P-5 schools and their broadcast partners felt they dodged a bullet with Houston not being able to run the table in the AAC (which would have made it impossible to keep them out of the playoff). If someone from one of those camps, in an attempt to keep that from happening proposed this it would have made sense (as that is the last piece of ammunition necessary to officially exclude us). It coming from a G-5 school makes no sense at all.

    No there is not. UConn should not give a hoot or a holler about what is good for Bowling Green, North Texas or Cincinnati for that matter. This is a UConn message board and as such, anything and everything under consideration should be viewed through a National Flag Blue colored prism. Not one checkmark can be put in the Pro column.

    But not just any G5 school. Western Michigan just proved you can go undefeated and still not even be considered for the national championship. They did every thing in their power, and it still wasn't good enough. For most G5 schools, there is no possibility of a national championship from day one. At least in basketball, everybody has a theoretical chance.

    I was ready to make a post about OOC schedule then I looked WMU up and they beat Northwestern and Illinois. Not bad but not great. It'd take a situation like Houston had this year with a dynamite OOC schedule and high preseason ranking to get done.

    So this is basically the MAC saying "we know, regardless of on field product, our profile won't allow us to ever break through so we want to ensure all other G-5 schools are in the same boat".

    WMU was well outside the preseason top 25 and didn't break into the AP rankings until week 7. By contrast, UDub was #14 in the preseason and #4 in the CFP. Basically, a program has to be at least ranked to start the year in order to have a chance.

    The G5 is certainly at a disadvantage, but we already knew that.

    I think that if there is enough early hype and they go undefeated, an AAC team can make it to the playoff, maybe a MWC team too. MAC, Sunbelt and Conference USA? Never.

    I agree that an AAC team that runs the table (and has a good OOC win), could get in the playoff.
