ND has gotta cut back on the G5 games which means they might have to stop playing Navy every year (you want to look good in front of the CFP committee)

ND will never stop playing Navy. They have 10 p5 games most future years now (not 2019, but that year is insane). Every team in college football pays for home games, and ND pays a team that just went to the Cotton Bowl

Navy is not the problem for ND, recruiting is. It hard to get to the CFP when you are only winning 3 games.
