All good comments

A few more things.

1. If it goes from P5 to P4, who is to say that it won't be the ACC that splits up? What if UNC, UVa, and Duke say, let's go to the Big Ten. Or FSU and Clemson decide to work their way into the SEC. People say, "oh, the SEC won't want them since they are already in their states." But if each conference is mandated to go to 16 or 20, I promise you, the SEC isn't gonna want any posers and straphangers.

So I think everyone just assumes it's going to be a certain way. And I think there is no guarantee of that.

2. I am a big fan of the underdog in life and especially in college football realignment. I just think if this all went down 20 or 30 years ago, VT football would have never had the chance to become what it is today. BTW, I love KSU. Other than the VT and the academies, they are my favorite. I'd hate to see them left out. Ditto for ISU. It's just not right or in the best interest on the sport to just tell them, "Hey, lots of schools enjoy 1-AA football. You'll grow to like it too."
