    Make no mistake. Mike Alden and Bryan Maggard were brought here to get us into the next Major G5 conference. That's their purpose and that's why moves are being made as swiftly as they are. 2020 is just around the corner.

    I'm not forgetting that BYU isn't a P5 school.

    A private P5
    A private non P5
    A public non P5

    I can see Louisiana fitting into one of those slots.

    One program was built on history and tradition, and the other LITERALLY has a cult following.

    P.S. the "Ragin' Jehovas" doesn't sound so terrible.

    Both built on religion and private schools. They have fans who couldn't point out their campus on a map.

    What is the trigger in 2020? Expiring TV contracts?

    I was told the difference between a cult and a religion once. A cult is created by one person, who knows it's all bull____. In a religion...that dude is dead.

    Do you guys think it will be a complete G5 reshuffle, or just a few select schools moving around?

    I think there will be a little movement at the top to P5 with back filling. Then, there will be a creation of a "best of the rest" conference formed to be the equal of the MWC and the AAC. We have to be in that league if we aren't part of the backfilling to the other 2.
