I think you're missing the big picture on this. We (the currently named


G5) got locked out of relevancy when the BcS was created, it got much worse with autonomy. We were legit in the 90's because there was a much more even playing field. The field has tilted back a little with this proposal. It certainly hasn't given a team like CSU the same access that we had back before the BcS, but it is a return to opportunity. It's a big step. Right now, we have access to a BS token NY6 bowl if we can get there. Under this proposal you have to win two post-season football games and you are no longer lesser than Washington State, Mississipi State, Purdue, etc. You exceed them in the eyes of the media and their marketing machine. There's no easy road, but you and I both know that if we win one CCG, we have a very solid chance of telling recruits that we were in the playoffs, and we need them to get us back there. Win one playoff game and they're knocking on our door, not the other way around.

Jack Graham used to say "you eat what you kill". This proposal would give us a legit opportunity to kill something so that we can finally eat.
