From our beginning, The Rest of Us Sports (TRU Sports) has been guided by the interests of the Group of Five (“G5”) fan and their favorite team. We have entered a day and age where G5 teams are consistently defying the odds: beating a Power Five (“P5”) school in football or making huge runs in the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament.
In 2016, Leonard Fournette (RB, LSU) could sneeze and he would make the front page of ESPN. Meanwhile, teams like Western Michigan and South Florida were largely marginalized: analysts questioning if they could sustain success while praising mediocre P5 squads. We say “no more of that nonsense.”
TRU Sports focuses solely on G5 programs: bringing you standings, rankings, news, articles, and multimedia. Embrace your G5 status. The best part? You can join our team and represent your school! Just click on over to the “Write for Us!” page.
