It's also a LOT harder to schedule more P5 non-conference games year in and year out. Most P5 schools want a home and home, both teams need space open in their schedule that lines up, etc.Couldn’t Big Ten teams make just as much money by agreeing to schedule other power 5 teams in the non-conference than just keep adding teams to the conference? Like they were going to do with the PAC12 before the poaching started or the ACC challenge in bball. At some point you think the extra money isn’t worth the 0% chance of winning the title if you are in the bottom half standings constantly (and they also do away with divisions). Have to imagine there will be some pushback.
I get the non-power 5 and FCS loses money in that scenario but that’s their problem.
