Seriously ? That is your argument? You think I don’t know the difference Between 1 off and 2 for 1 G5? They have 4 games to schedule and their Commish is telling them to add another P5 series. ( Good for him ). You really think Duke,UVA,Syracuse really want to make their schedule even harder? I didn’t hear the Commish say “just pay for 2 G5’s and an an FCS team to come play - he said add an additional 1 for 1 P5 series. I don’t think AD’s or coaches want to - you can argue that they do - but still be wrong .
False. The ACC commissioner said to not schedule road games vs. G5’s. He said they had nothing to gain. And he said he would prefer more P5’s. And he was absolutely right about all of it.
Are we arguing about reality?
Or what the ACC commissioner said?
Or what other commissioners have obviously said behind closed doors?
Or what AD’s know to be best for their programs?
Or your dreams not based in reality?
A 2-1 with a G5 make even less sense anymore for a P5 since the expansion of the playoff. And TV eyeball-craving conference commissioners are rightly telling their schools to not be stupid about this. So you can stop bringing up 2-1’s with P5’s. It isn’t going to happen. I’m still betting the last P5 on LU’s future schedule falls out.
I wish LU was P5. It’s not. Never was, no matter how many P5’s it tried to schedule. It’s an exclusive club, and buying it’s way obviously isn’t viable for LU. So LU tried to schedule their way in, and P5’s were happy to oblige until LU starting winning a few. Now, not only is LU not a member of the club, they’re a threat to many trying to stay IN the P5 club.
Lu has a conference. LU has a pathway - albeit a slim one - to the playoff. That is LU’s reality, and the best one they’ll have for a long time. Deal with it. Or even better yet: choose to ENJOY it!
