We introduce a stronger and more tractable form of Olivers p-group conjecture, and derive a reformulation in terms of the modular representation theory of a quotient group. The Sylow p-subgroups of the symmetric group Sn and of the general linear group satisfy both the strong conjecture and its reformulation.
