Unfortunately the answer to your questions is yes..


"Are a higher percentage of the good players going to P5 schools than in the past because of this money? Is the strength and conditioning that much better at P5 schools because of money? Are the coaches that much better at the P5 schools because of money?"

Yes. Facilities in P5 are absolutely ridiculous, and are used to recruit the best players. Check out what Illinois was just able to release. Illinois is considered one of the worst teams in the B1G: https://www.thetelegraph.com/sports/article/COLLEGE-FOOTBALL-World-class-football-center-14361667.php.

Recruiting budgets in P5 are much higher and are used to identity talent. Last year Georgia spent something like $3MM just on recruiting.

Coaching salaries are crazy in P5 as well. Bobo is considered expensive, but would be one of the lowest in the P5. Many coordinators are paid above him. And it isn't just the money to pay coaches, it's having the money to buy out contracts of poorly performing coaches. Just this past year Colorado was able to buyout MM and he will totally be off the books before Jan 1, 2020. Oregon is paying Jim Leavitt millions to not be their DC just because the new coach didn't like him.

"I really feel like the P5 schools have always had a financial advantage."

It's not just having the advantage, but the degree of the advantage.

Another factor is the current format of the playoff. G5 teams are automatically excluded from competing for a championship.
