Then look at the money and it looks like G5 is closer to Division III, when compared to P5. How the G5 schools allowed this to happen incrementally over time is almost criminal. And I haven't even touched on what a huge effect the P5 dollars has had on the academic side of all of these schools.
No, it's not closer to D III. It's ahead of FCS, a long way from D III, which doesn't grant athletic scholarships.

Proving damages at this time would be difficult. Creating a separate playoff would demonstrate that the NCAA basically allowed the P5 to dictate that a new division needs to be created. I think it would be much easier to prove damages at that time.

LOL at the idea that such a lawsuit could be won. Just like you can't beat City Hall you aren't going to beat the Universities of Texas, Michigan, Florida, etc. The deck is stacked against the G5.
Welcome to gotula.net, where it's never too late to mention Tanner Lee, Andy Cannizaro, Lindsey Scott Jr., Rich Rodriguez, David Pierce, or, of course, Scott Cowen. You see, no horse here is so dead that it cannot be beaten just a little bit more.
