Default Does any G5 school have a chance?

With the potential new 12 team format is there any shot a group of five school have a chance to make the "final four" of the College Football Playoff?

If you are one of the 12 you always have a shot. The year undefeated Boise from the WAC played and beat previously undefeated TCU from the MWC is an example of a team that was final four worthy. UCF from a few years back probably as well.

Yep. Boise was legit during those days. They could have taken out anyone.

4 SEC
4 BIG
1 ACC
1 PAC 12
ND
1 BIG 12

Doubt a G 5 team gets in….

Why would anyone outside of SEC or BIG vote for this plan?

I think any bigger than 8 is too many. I honestly think it should only be 6 teams - 5 conference champs and one non-power 5 team. I hate it now that a team like UGA who will likely not even win their division will make the playoffs and sell to recruits how they make the postseason. Kinda like the year Bama won the title after losing to Auburn. They didn't even deserve to be there IMO.

Judge you have my vote. +1 Preseason polls need to be banished. SEC loads up with worthless teams that take up the polls and stick around way to long.

A G5 has to get in under this format, the highest ranked group of five champ gets an automatic bid. But I don't think t hose teams stand a chance of even making the semifinals.

Boise or TCU of the 2008-2011ish days would have had a good chance. Utah pre-PAC 12 would have had a chance too. 2013 or 2017 UCF would have had a good chance as well.

They have a shot, but they will not win it.
