It’s great that Mike Aresco is finally calling for unity when he suddenly realizes that his G5 conference was just as vulnerable as the rest. My hero!
Either Hatcher or Blackman need to establish that they run the huddle, and nether can wait until the second half to make the declaration.
The Sun Belt has emerged from 2020’s ooze like a Greek god from an enormous seashell. We have a CVS receipt of reasons to love the Sun Belt. Why screw up a good thing? Unless we’re talking about adding members (which would be ideal), there’s honestly little reason to leave a conference that with a ceiling g so high.
The conference has seen growth, defections, additions, subtractions, and upgrades. But the process (absolutely necessary in the SBC evolution) was heavy on the unmerciful beatings.
