Gives G5s a chance to truly make headlines

You want CSU to really build a national following and get into an A5 conference? If exposure is king, then this is essential. The amount of benefit that can come from a G5 team making the CFP is significant. If that team happens to beat an A5 team on that stage, they just became the biggest story of the college football season, maybe even moreso then who wins the CFP. From there that team will have ridiculous endorsement deals, if they can keep their HC then recruits will line up to transfer in via the portal. Will that be CSU? I'm not saying it will, but I'm saying it can be just like it can be any other G5 time when you have the opening to do so. Right now that opening doesn't exist for the G5. This move to 12 opens that up. In fact last year 2 teams would have gotten that shot to try. To me that is essential. Now, the devil is always in the details so we will see what the actual accepted model is versus the proposed once coaches like Saban get involved in giving their opinions.
Here is a question, does this make it more attractive for a BYU to rejoin the MWC because of an auto G5 bid, which may allow them to be the 20th ranked team, for instance, and get the bid? I would think so, since if there are two G5 teams in the top 12, both might make it. If the top G5 is ranked 20th and the top independent is ranked 15th, that G5 team is going to the CFP, while BYU, could be just playing in the Tater Bowl.
