There is quite a bit of truth in your post, not sure about D1-AA part


however, the direction of college football is moving more toward dysfunction and regardless of what people say, schools like CSU have very little control of their future. I am an advocate of blowing the whole thing up and starting over. By that I mean, I think the Super League is the best thing for college football. Let the big guys go do their own thing, which is probably in the neighborhood of 30 or so schools. The remaining 100 have the opportunity to create something pretty good, entertaining and in line with how things have changed with the money the game generates, TV/media exposure and a product fans love. You could have a competitive 16 game post season in December, give players 5 years of eligibility, ie no redshirts etc. Put some rules on NIL... Quite honestly, it really only applies to football - all the other sports are great, but they do not have the same following or popularity.

It is becoming obvious to me that conference loyalty doesn't mean anything, schools will rush to where they can make the most money. You are seeing a lot of CYA right now, but I'm pretty sure if Ohio St. calls Alabama and USC, plus 27 other friends to form their own league, they would in a heartbeat. Maybe not right now, but in 2025 when it might be easier?
