I don't mind the playoffs, been wanting a full 16 team playoff for years. But I hate the ever growing conferences, takes away from what a conference was. Ridiculous that Georgia has only play A&M once in the entire time that they've been in the conference.
I want an 8 team playoff, other than that, I agree with what your saying here.

Whats the running theory, 2 teams in the Top 10 will end up outside of the Top 20 and 1 outside the Top 20 will end up inside the Top 10 ....

That will be Texas (12/11 but close enough) and Florida State, as in so many seasons in the past.
and 1 outside the Top 20 will end up inside the Top 10 ....
At least one, not sure who though, probably a team that manages to go undefeated in the Group of Five.

I agree with your thoughts there, Maybe Washington (barely inside ) or Tennessee al though I don't know if they will be bad enough to drop all the way out of the Top 20 ....
Just a hunch.

October 7th for the Buckeyes, against Maryland at home.

Do you think most TTUN fans will buy Peacock to see the game, try to watch it on a 7 day trial or skip the game all together ???
Since they are going to have more exclusive games during the season, you would have to have it the 3 months.

Big Ten has always been confusing with their TV scheduling.

Last year, it could be on FOX, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, ABC, ESPN 1, ESPN 2, ESPN 3, Big Ten Network.

This Year, CBS, Paramount+, NBC, Peacock, FOX, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, Big Ten Network.

With both Paramount+ and Peacock having 10 exclusive games this year, plus the Networks, I have the feeling BTN will get the ugly step children games, for example week 1

12:00pm
B1G Football: Fresno State at Purdue

3:30pm
B1G Football: Towson at Maryland

7:30pm
B1G Football: Toledo at Illinois

Typically, the BTN does get the Ugly Step Child games ...
I believe every team is required 1 game per year on the BTN.

I already have Peacock, rarely ever use it, but for me, if I didn't already have it, I would get it for the week My TEAM is on it ... don't know if the MAJOR games will be on it or not, yet.

However, Thanks for your post, I didn't know that the Local team Toledo was on it on week 1 ...
 

Unfortunately, looking at the Toledo Rockets 2023 Football schedule says Nothing about being on Peacock for the opening game.
It Does show it being on the BTN though vs Illinois.

Looks like 7 of thier games will be on TV one way or another this year ...
The last 4 games or so are always a possibility with ESPN doing thier Tuesday night games (sometimes Wed too)
