Agree. An expanded playoff is the only way unless the CFP sweetens

the pot of money paid to the half of college football teams left out in the cold (The G5) due to SOS. I could see a scenario where the CFP relents and starts paying the G5 Rep triple or quadruple the current payout and maybe doubles what goes to all the other non P5 conferences at distribution time. This might be Aresco's angle.

A class action suit could claim the CFP purposely precludes G5 teams primarily based on their SOS (beyond our control when P5 teams will not schedule us) and the fact the G5 receives a lot less money (distribution) than the P5. The fact the G5 is allowed an access bowl rep is further confirmation of inclusion but not to the level of ever qualifying for the CFP. So, the G5 starts every year (half the college teams) knowing they will not qualify even if undefeated. This fact does not create a true path for a G5 team to make the CFP. UCF has proven this 2 years in a row. It does appear a divide is being created to fully separate the G5 and P5. The American is the conference that is the PITA and could have some leverage as long as our teams keep going undefeated or winning 12. What say you Pirates???
