    Well at least you admitting a measly no name bowl is our only hope. Now tell that to the rest of the ppl who think somehow any Sunbelt team will make a NY6 bowl. It will NEVER happen even if a Sunbelt team goes undefeated.

Not to mention, who ever wins this "g5 playoff" would no way, shape or form be preceived as a National Champion...only a champion of the G5s.
    And NDSU is about on par with us on budget, so not to bad for a little ole FCS program.

    Not at all, but I still wouldn't change places with them.

    That will change. Their 15 minutes are almost up. Much like the old Yale, Army, Navy, Harvard national football powers. It's all cyclical.

    Well hope for that in one hand, and ____ in the other hand. Let me know which one fills up first.

    My point is we at this point have reached our ceiling, a no name bowl against another G5 team of similar standing. That is it!
    No way no how, will a sunbelt team make a NY6 bowl. Sunbelt team would have to go undefeated and MWC/AAC/MAC's best team would have to lose 2-3 games. That is the difference they have on us.

    This is key. The FCS champion is a legit national champion. Our WBB team won a national championship the last two years. Anyone thinks of them as national champions?

    G5 champion is not a "national champion."

    PS It costs money to get to this extra game. We'd just be used by ESPN to fill some Wednesday in December when nothing's going on. How exciting.

    There's literally nothing good about a G5 championship whatsoever. Not one damn thing.

    Consersely, such a white flag of surrender invites more separation on the field when P5 feels loose to set its own rules to separate itself from us.

    No, no, no, no, no.

    I do not ever want to be the "G5 champion" unless that means I get to go to the Cotton or Peach Bowl or something actually meaningful.

    Yea cuz losing the NOLA bowl, or vacated two NOLA bowls are so much more glamorous.

    As an ex-athlete at UL, I could not see being involved in a sport where you have absolutely NO chance of even being in the conversation for a national championship. I could see it now, instead of me running at Regionals in Indiana in 2005 with a chance to go to Nationals, I would instead go to an invite in Shreveport. "Great season, Walt. You made it to LSU-Shreveport Invitational End of the Season bowl"

    Not saying it's going to happen... but I sure wouldn't mind being included in a reformation of a conference made out of a more cohesive set of regional G5 programs.

    These G5 members are talking about this because they see the writing on the wall. The split is coming.

    Then when a first round playoff game comes on at the same time with our prestigious NOLA bowl, we will see what relegation is really like. It is called ESPNU at 11am. Or even worst, ESPNU at 11am on a Tuesday.

    The set up as it is today, has UL at its ceiling. This is it!

    Anybody who thinks "we have a chance at a NY6 bowl!" is seriously delusional. It will never happen. If we are lucky we make the Camellia bowl every other year to spice things up.

    Listen, I am with you on hoping for huge bowl game, or even a chance at a National champ. But there is no way a G5 ever gets more than what we have now.

    If App or Troy had gone undefeated, they would be about to play Wisconsin in the Cotton Bowl.

    WMU played an FCS, Geo Sou, Northwestern, Illinois, and the MAC schedule.

    Both App and Troy could have run that table.

    It's not a matter of if, but when an SBC school makes the Access Bowl.

    Only reason ndsu had the love they have isn't bc of their brand, it's bc they won 5 in a row. With them losing, you won't hear about them or fcs again for a long time.
    We haven't even scratched the surface of our potential and you say we already hit our ceiling? I don't agree with that at all.
