For one, we are heading in that direction were politics is showing their true colours; The left showing it more and hoping to succeed at all costs. Name brands is where it's at, even when those schools are brainwashed facilities. We are still a Christian school, so it will not simple to reach that goal when Jesus is not favored in our society. Christian kids want the name brand and immediate benefits; not much kids would like to take an opportunity and establish a legendary status that's not a blue blood or "grandfather" university. I will say that it's not impossible if money becomes very tight and presidents/commissioners become desperate if matters get worse.
I don’t care about cornering the market with Protestants - I want to corner the market with conservative recruits nationally whose parents don’t want them going to re-education camps and who want to play P5 level ball vs P5 level teams 3-5 of whom play at LU every year and who bring eyeballs which in turn bring big tv contracts that we don’t share with 10-14 other schools. Getting an invite from a conference in football isn’t on my agenda. Getting the ACC to informally schedule us and count us as a Power 5 game for their members is on my agenda and 100 times a more realistic goal.
As for players only wanting to go to Blue Bloods - take a peek at UNC recruiting class. Things happen real quick now. Baylor had 1 coach and 1 player pull them from dead last to top 5 within 3 years.
( btw it has been more than 30 days so here is the monthly message ) What is also ridiculous is thinking going into a G 5 conference is a win for Liberty ( in football ) and a critical step for us before ever reaching the long term goal of being a ND. It is nothing more than wasting time. We have the exact things now that we would have 25 years from now playing in a G5 conference and would be no closer to ND than we are today. If JR wants to keep talking about it - then lay out the plan and go for it OR stop talking about it and let’s pray that G5 gets their own playoff and ends the idiotic low tier bowl stuff and isn’t the ONLY NCAA grouping In any sport at any level that has no chance to play for or win a NC. If that happens, sign me up for the Sunbelt baby.
