College Football Playoff 2024: Boise State, Liberty among teams poised for run at Group of Five automatic bid

We didn't make the headline but we're in the conversation:

Appalachian State: The Sun Belt has seen its profile as a conference steadily rise in recent years, and the Mountaineers are in line to benefit from that increased notoriety. They were one of three teams to win at least nine games last season. The other two -- James Madison and Troy -- both lost their head coaches during this chaotic coaching carousel period, while App State's Shawn Clark is set to return for his fifth season as coach.

Furthering its almost unparalleled consistency, Appalachian State also returns both coordinators and starting quarterback Joey Aguilar, who was named the Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year last season after throwing for almost 3,800 yards and accounting for 36 total touchdowns. The Mountaineers have a great chance to make an early impression on the road against Clemson, a former perennial playoff contender that has taken a bit of a tumble (relatively speaking) in recent years.

Apologies if this speculation on a 14-team college football playoff model has already been broached. Basically it drops the G5’s inclusion from one in 12 to one in 14.

It's possible there will be positives to this proposal such as a bigger pie overall that teams/conferences can get but this will be a downgrade from 5+7 model for G5. While unlikely, the current model has potential of having two G5 reps if one conference has a surprise winner/mediocre year. This would effectively end that 2nd team chance. any 2nd best G5 team would have to be in the top 3 "Others" and hope Notre Dame isn't in top 14 overall to win. Still guaranteed for one but the 2nd team goes from slim to none.

All teams who would have made the playoffs since 2014 if the 12 team model had existed.
