    Here is an interesting read. College football players trying to form a union. That will make it interesting and would make a real playoff much more likely imho.

    I think that the playoff format is going to be way down on their list of priorities.

    We all live in stories... It seems to me that a definition of any living vibrant society is that you constantly question those stories... The argument itself is freedom. It's not that you come to a conclusion about it. Through that argument you change your mind sometimes... That's how societies grow. When you can't retell for yourself the stories of your life then you live in a prison... Somebody else controls the story. - S. Rushdie

    5 years later, how much closer are we to a 16 team playoff?

    Nothing will ever come to fruition. 4-team “playoff”, bowls remain, and the P5 will not break away.
    Stand your ground, have a tough hide, roam wild and free, have a strong spirit, let the chips fall where they may.

    I think 8 will happen. Who will be considered in that 8 team playoff? I don’t know.

    UCONN leaving the AAC. Possible ripple affect?

    UCONN is sacrificing it's football to get into the Big East for its basketball program. They'd be better off going down like Georgetown and Villanova instead of UMass-like independent purgatory.

    I would agree with that.

    Hopefully the AD at least kicks the tires on the AAC. They might not be interested at all, but it would put NDSU in the high mid-major conference in all sports where it belongs.

    It's still not soccer, it's not promotion and relegation.

    NDSU is still a school in the 117th TV market in the middle of nowhere with roughly the same enrollment as St Cloud State.
