Due to the sporting-world chaos that has been created by the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been rumors that conferences might only play conference games. This puts the current FBS Independents at risk of not having a season. Lucky for them, we at Forgotten 5 solved the problem. There are two different schedules, one with Notre … Continue reading What Happens to The Independents If Conferences Use Conference Game Only Scheduling?
With all this possible playoff expansion talk, it got me thinking; what would be the worst-case scenario for the Group of Five? Well, it would be where an expanded playoff doesn't include an auto-bid for at least one G5 team. What does that mean for the G5, you might ask? It's time to go our … Continue reading Group of Five Doomsday: Breaking Free From the Power Five
Group of 5 Power Rankings in a GIFfy Sorry people, I’m back. I know, I know…why? Honestly, it is because no one read this the first time so I figure I might as well continue my quest for creating a series of articles with no value. The truth hurts, I know you needed something more … Continue reading Every Week is a GIFt – Week 2 Edition
Maybe you're tired of hearing about it, but it just fascinates the hell out of me so I'll keep writing about it. I talked before about how UConn football would benefit from a postponement of their departure from the AAC, for reasons both financial and purely scheduling related, then hammered those points home again as … Continue reading UConn’s 2020 Schedule Options Are Quickly Fading Away
As football season dawns upon us, now's a good time to review what's happened this offseason in a UniWatch style preview. From a uniform perspective, this has been far from average. New uniforms are popping up left and right... so quickly that trying to write a new article about all of them would be absolutely … Continue reading The Complete Catalog of G5 College Football Uniform Changes
There are 16 FBS programs who haven't been to a bowl game since the 2015 season or earlier. Of those, 12 are Group of Five programs. The Power Five will remain at the top of the heap, at least until Les Miles gets things turned around at Kansas (10 seasons and counting, Viva la Mangino!). … Continue reading Group of Five Bowl Droughts: Who’ll Break the Streak in 2019?
UConn football is heading for an uncertain future, no doubt. Those who point to FBS Independent status as a good thing (and I assure you, that is where the Huskies are headed) like to use UMass' three-year run as an independent program as some sort of standard to aspire towards. Yes, it is indeed true … Continue reading UConn and UMass Can Avoid Independent Purgatory With A Little Ingenuity
In the previous entries of this series, I explained my idea for a complete rebuild of college football. Part one covered the new rules, and part two detailed which teams would comprise the new Power 5 conferences and provided some examples of what schedules would look like under this new system. Today's final volume will be … Continue reading An Ideal College Football Structure, Part 3: The New Group of 5
In the days following the blitz of news about UConn transitioning to the Big East for everything but football and likely independence for the pigskin squad, the timing shifted. The initial reports said UConn would join the Big East in a year, but subsequent reports stated that the entry dateas "to be determined." I'm very … Continue reading When Should UConn Officially Move, and How Can Football Schedule Their Future?
It's that time of the year, folks, where teams start to unveil their new threads for the upcoming season. And now seemed to be... well... the time for UConn to do the same. Amidst the announcement that they'd be leaving the AAC and speculation of where football would end up, a uniform reveal seemed like … Continue reading UConn Reveals New Uniforms
