yes, it is constant turnover. 50-70% roster reconstruction annually.

Truthfully, for a high school senior it is better to take an FCS offer than go to group of 5 at this point in time; you can get playing time at an FCS and determine if you can move up; if you can, those same group of 5 schools (or even power 5) are available. But some of these FCS programs are actually better; South Dakota, SDSU, North Dakota, NDSU, Sac State, etc. would win most group of 5 conferences easily.

If your goal is to play good football in a winning environment (and not necessarily on Wed night), group of 5 is not the way to go.
