    They would have to have a top OOC schedule and beat at least 2 teams ranked in Top 10. They would also need the AAC teams they beat to knock off some good OOC teams as well.
    Houston this season would have been a good example.

    I think its more a thinking that the probability of a G5 School, especially one in The MAC, making the playoff is so low that there is merit in the idea of a G5 version if the money is right. A tournament paycheck could be the difference in being able to fund teams, facilities, etc. Its legit for some to dream big, but for 90% of these teams maybe being pragmatic is the way to go.

    It's certainly understandable if you want to take that view of things. As this is a Uconn Board, most discussions will be framed as how it would effect the school. However in this thread I don't think it is out of bounds to have a broader discussion about potential future events. I do believe this will ultimately happen, as The P5 or P4 potentially will break away. I also think it will effect the basketball tournament in some way as well, but I'm not sure in what manner at this point in time. What I am sure is that The P5 Schools are not thrilled with the percentage of revenue that The NCAA keeps from its yearly proceeds. The problem with Uconn is they are not where they belong. Cincy for that matter as well. I'm sorry but I can't group them in the same category as schools like New Mexico State, Florida International, or Rice. There needs to be a major call up to the top level for a number of schools before this break away can be legitimized.

    Oh please. Don't be a hypocrite. Aren't you an ND fan? ND fans in general value their Independence and NBC payday as much as the 24 carat gold with which they paint the helmets. Neither ND nor their fans care about what the ACC does, let alone the rest of the P5, so long as ND can set their own terms and still be a part of the fraternity.

    Any potential mistake in allegiance really doesn't diminish the overall point any, which is UConn needs to look out for its own self interest, without regard to what may or may not be good for the lower profile G-5 teams/conferences. There is no broader discussion extends beyond 06268.

    Here's the reality. Could this be positive? Yes, but you'd have to do it this way. To be P5 you need a stadium seating X. You must fund full max scholarships. You must hire a certain number of coaches on staff.

    Then, see who wants in and qualifies. And anyone who qualifies is in. That's how FBS works now. You want to make a new higher level, fine, but it has to function on the same basis and be open to any school that qualifies.

    It is. These guys are just a bunch of sad wraiths who have died and are haunting the place.

    Agreed. If Houston ran the table this year with OOC wins over OU and Louisville plus Temple, Navy, Memphis, and Tulsa for good measure you can't keep them out really. Not to mention they had to be highly ranked to start the year. Unfortunately they didn't pull it off. It's quite the perfect storm of record, schedule, hype that another team may not get a crack at.
