It’s not an extra home game if it costs you a road game to get it. And that road game comes with a higher likelihood of losing
My math must be bad - 2 home games for 1 away game vs 1 home game vs 1 away game with a much higher chance of losing. . Now Duke has to add another P5 series and pay $1 million plus to get a G5 to come visit as a 1 off - I am sure 6-8 or so ACC teams are thrilled when their goal is to scratch out a Bowl. But - I agree with the Commish 100 percent - losing to G5 sucks even if it cost money and
you don’t go to a bowl- play P5 instead. I just don’t think ACC AD’s and coaches are thrilled about it.
It is. You’re acting like $1M is a lot of money to these programs. It’s not.
Every single ACC AD would take the 1/1 with a P5 over a 2/1 with a G5. Losing to a P5 is explainable. Just playing
a G5 is a lose-lose proposition.
But even better options exist! Just buy all wins non-con. With the expanded playoff, there’s even less reason to play fellow P5’s in non-con. Just bag 3-4 easily winnable non-con’s and go undefeated or one-loss in conference. You don’t have to finish Top 4 anymore, just Top 11.
G5’s have one guaranteed spot in the playoff. Yay! The trade off is even fewer P5’s willing to give G5’s a chance.
