Who gets left out of a 64-school P5 breakaway?
« on: April 22, 2021, 01:29:18 PM »
I know the highest vote-getter would be "screw ND, leave them out" if it was an option, so I left it off on purpose.  I chose 8 of the historically woeful programs as the one and only P5 football program to be left out.

Football only.

I'm not sure who WOULD be left out, but I know I'd like for it to be Baylor.  So I'll choose Baylor.

What is the premise that sets the magic number at 64 instead of 65 or any other random number?

Some article.
Plus its clean.
And it's actually doable.  No one is over 16 teams, so all hope isn't lost.

I went with Wake, but could easily have gone for Baylor.

Vandy is in a cool city.

I'm going with the Beavers... Nobody out west cares about CFB anyway.

Although I'd be tempted to keep them just because they're the Beavers.

If Notre Dame gets their spot, then it is Rutgers. Otherwise, I dunno... Wake?

4 x 16
But when I used to toil with major realignment stuff, I'd always wind up with Iowa State or Baylor being left out.  But Wake is tiny, too.

8x8

if you want to play a crossover team from the "other" 8 team conference that you're paired with for the first round playoff game, that's fine

call them 16-team conferences if you like, but they're (2) 8-team conferences

Yeah, 4x16 is effectively going to turn out as 8x8 anyway.
