written about conference realignment and/or expansion. The majority of them seem to center around the eventual dissolution of the Big 12 and its members being absorbed by the other P5 conferences to form four 16 team conferences. It would be great to see the American absorb some of these teams. But how would that happen? Why would a P5 be okay with going to a G5 conference? It simply wouldn’t happen.
Doesn’t look like we will ever be included with the P5. I heard it mentioned over the weekend with all of this UCF controversy going on that the best opportunity for UCF and other G5’s to get in a playoff, aside from expansion, is to have our own playoff for G5 schools only. Is it coming to that?
