Evolve or be swallowed up
CFB isn’t going backwards … that’s a pipe dream
The $$$ is only going to be more vast and the requirements for players/teams are also only going to increase because of the laws/legislation coming down and whatever the future adjustments the NCAA makes
The bigger issue to me at this point is that the have’s and have not’s are only going to get more vast. How long before you have a Wazzu that looks at the cost of college athletics and it no longer makes sense at the scale of what it will cost? Each conference has a handful of programs that fall into this range.
I do think at some point you will see a further break of CFB into a 32 program top end and the remainder plus Group of 5 schools into another group which is still very marketable with high end players that will be playing in the NFL
Everything today is have’s vs have not’s … when the have’s realize that they get more $$$ by combining their resources you will see the next wave of change
