This 100%. There is no good reason for Power 5 schools to associate themselves with the likes of Longwood etc in any sort of bubble.
With most colleges doing distance learning there is no need for schools to be tied to a bubble based off of geography. ACC/Big 10 etc could easily create their own OOC buble and get games in.
If there's no need to associate themselves with the likes of Longwood in a bubble, why do they routinely schedule the likes of Longwood during non-conference play year-in and year-out, where they not only play the likes of Longwood, they pay them?
