Would think SEC and other P-5's would play less FCS teams in the future due to their desires to get
built up rankings and get into the playoffs. Especially if the new pay for play rules make those games
even more lopsided.

This does not suprise me. If you look at it many of the SEC school already play a Power Five team each year on a annual bases such as:

Florida/Florida St
Georgia/Georgia Tech
SC/Clemson

The rest will have no problem scheaduling a Power Five conference school every year and will still beable to have either 7 or 8 home games each and every year if they so desire which still fits in there scheaduling policy that they have been using for years.

Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and Vandy will have the hardest time getting a game every year. Since 1998 neither of the Mississippi schools have played more than 10 non-conference games against power schools.

Not if it is like the first proposal, it was for headcount sports only. FCS football is an equivalency sport.

Hope you are right.I see this as a probable advantage for G5 schools.
