Do we really want to be invited to a P5 conference?
Do we really want to play a minimum of 9 P5 teams in our P5 conference each season with the other 3 non conference games being respectable teams?
Are we just saying that we want these things but really don’t want it?
Would we rather guarantee ourselves consecutive Bowl games each season by programing 6 teams each season that we know we can not possibly lose to, like Idaho, Idaho State, Weber State, Savanna State, Wager, Southern Utah?
Regarding our 2016 season:
" “My wife says it’s awful,” Mendenhall said with a laugh, referring to the reaction of his wife Holly. “She texted me when it was released and said, ‘This is awful.’ I just thought I’d share that.”
- Arizona 2. Utah 3. UCLA 4. W. Va. 5. Mich. State are five of the 9 P5 teams that we would be required to play if we were in a P5 conference.
A. Boise State, B. Cinn. C. Southern Miss would be three good non conference games.
We would only be short 3 P5 teams to be acting like a P5 conference, but instead, we scheduled
FCS Southern Utah, and a couple other guaranteed win teams.
On the bright side, we did not guarantee ourselves 6 patsey games for a guaranteed bowl game like we did in the past 11 years. That is good.
What is it that we really want? On the surface, it may look to some that we want to be a P5 team, but we want the privilege of programing like a G5 team.
Thanks for the best season of programing ever. If we really want to be a P5 team, and it just isn’t talk, than perhaps, we need to program 9 P5 teams each season and no FCS teams at all.
