We could drop to FCS tomorrow. There are several conferences that would love to have us. We’d be a powerhouse. We’d win many championships.
A G5 playoffs has most of the same dynamics of that. We would, within ten years, officially be in a different subdivision. Maybe that’s our fate anyway, but I see no reason not go to down kicking and screaming.
One UCF-Auburn NY6 game is worth an entire tournament featuring UCF, Boise, Toledo, and Troy and it isn’t even close. And yes, a playoff means that the NY6 would be let off the hook with regard to a NY6 invite.
