    Tony, you know how hard it was for me to list a Marine general. lol

    But Chesty and Omar were the kind of guys we need at UL in our leadership.

If that's the case we will back in. We are members of a Transitions League that is basically an "FCS+" league. Every single HS Coach I speak to over here in Houston at Clinics that I still attend will tell you what they tell me....that CUSA is a better league. That is the perception of our league that all of our head Coaches have to deal with. In recruiting, perception IS reality. We had a great recruiting season this year. In my opinion, our best ever. But ask our Coaches and they will tell you that with a lot of kids we were hurt by the fact that we are in the Belt. If the opening occurs and USA gets the invite they are located right in the middle of Huds recruiting stronghold and South Alabama's attitude is they will step over dead children to get out of the SBC. We apparently are happy where we are....at least thats the perception that a lot of folks have. Who in their right mind thinks that we will raise the 50 million dollars in cash up front to begin construction of Phase 2 while remaining in a Conference that continues to lose members and add FCS start ups to replace the loss?? We are going to sell even more season tickets with a schedule that includes USM, Rice, Marshall and Louisiana Tech along with old SBC members WKU, MTSU and UNT....period. We will rot on the vine if we are stuck in this Conference much longer.

    In addition to my above post I would like to add that my biggest beef with this matter is our apparent tepid efforts to acquire membership in CUSA. Our fans are very forgiving and would forgive failure to achieve this goal IF OUR ADMINISTRATION were to go balls to the wall and give us an effort worthy of a loyal fan base. I want you to fight your ___ off T Joe.....we at the very least deserve that.

    That's the difference between most of the Generals mentioned here (except Dougout Doug) and our "leadership". Those great leaders knew how to communicate objectives to their troops as well as motivate and inspire them to achieve those objectives. Even hard taskmasters like Patton were held in high esteem by their men long after the conflict. Our admin does nothing to articulate our objectives (unless you consider being comfortable the ultimate objective) and less to inspire confidence in their abilities.

    I completely understand if you can't get into specifics, but I'm really curious to hear what you've heard about Savoie and Farmer and what they are and are not doing to get us into C-USA.

    You don't really want to know, it's pretty damn sad. Basically just a rinse and repeat of the last 2 times we were left out. Essentially a pinky promise to the Belt.

    I do not want to compare what our past heroes of World Was 2 did to our conference membership efforts. However I do have one suggestion for you Houston folks. I recall one guy posting he would wear a CUSA shirt to your May 2 function. Why not have a bevy of shirts made so that all guests could wear one. That may send a message to leaders as to how much of a priority alums are placing on this.

    +1 GREAT IDEA! Powerful statement if all attending are wearing those shirts.

    A better idea is shirts that say:

    UL + CUSA = RCAF
    UL + SunBelt = 0.
