    Mega G5 Conference

    Some good news

    Some believe that there will be 2 or 3 super power conferences - Tech will not be part of that. Good news is that there appears to be a mega G conference forming to get some stabilization. Most AAC and MWC teams are included. A few CUSA, Sunbelt, MAC teams.

    Tulane
    Louisiana Lafayette
    Louisiana Tech

    All three are proposed to be in - the conference will be split into pods. Sounds like North Texas is a big Tech ally in all this mess.

    Tech's fanbase BUYS TICKETS at ALL regional game sites. I'd even venture to say Tech's last appearance at LSU resulted in a sell-out of 102K+. Can any other state school say that since the Tigger Stadium expansion?

    As you know...

    - ticket sales for one game mean nothing compared to the TV thing.

    - I was at the game in Baton Rough where our HC Skip worked hard to lose it...The stands were not even close to being "sold out".

    We still do much better than southwestern and northeast so that's all that really matters to our "decision makers".

    Re: Mega G5 Conference

    The TV market kills us. Pair that with the athletic budget and we just don’t check the Disney boxes.

    I mean, Boise State is a glorified junior college but they will probably land in a new Big 12 or PAC12 structure….but people quantify their status with TV market. Heck, Idaho is the flagship school there.

    I am somewhat glad we were excluded from the new Sunbelt - it gives us much more ability to be flexible is there is a last minute shot at aligning with the remaining MWCs / AACs of the world.

    My concern is that ULL has a significant advantage over us for one of the final spots in the G5 mega conference. If it is TV market driven, we lose.

    Does this have legs or just internet speculation?

    We rightfully claim both of these which is a MUCH larger TV market.

    Our LaTech leaders use this small market excuse every time they fail at something they never really tried to do...like getting in the AAC.

    Tech needs to grow some balls and control the narrative that highlight us in a positive position and manner.

    Great point!

    Hopefully the blatant snub by the AAC academia snobs showed our AD how far we are behind the curve compared to what his bosses are telling him.

    I've always said that. The "TV market" strategy endorsed by so many conferences during conference expansion is a farce, because the UNT's, SMU's, UNCC's, FAU's and Rice's of the world DO NOT control their media markets anyway. Yet, they still get "promoted" based upon their supposed access to "markets". It's absurd, and Tech's leadership needs to work on redefining that narrative.

    I have not been able to find any links, reports, or articles outside of this thread that supports this discussion. As someone else posted, is this just internet speculation?

    Re: Mega G5 Conference

    Why would G5 want to go to mega conferences?

    G5 conferences need to retract and have 10-12 members at most with regional travel that is within a 5 to 6 hour bus ride and maybe on or two plane trips per season

    If we could claim (86) SBC, (143) Monroe/El Dorado & (181) Alexandria, we'd be in the 51st largest media market, between New Orleans & Memphis. Without Alexandria, we'd be 62 between Tulsa & Knoxville.

    Here's a look at future AAC

    Greenville 102
    Memphis 51
    Tampa 13
    Dallas 5
    Philadelphia 4

    Tulsa 61

    I've never been a proponent of claiming that crap hole in Cenla, but the crapholes in Monroe, and Sheveport/Bossier all cover Tech and their signal reaches Ruston.
