    Should be interesting to see. I just have a tough time understanding how they could feasibly reconstruct a team anytime soon.....after losing their players, etc.

    Let's not beat around the bush. The decision to shut down UAB football was made long before the first report was issued. That report was only created so UAB officials could present some sort of justification for the decision. Those same officials are still in charge at UAB. I think it's safe to assume the reason why these same officials have ordered a new study is so they can have yet another study to use as a justification for their decision. Surely they didn't hire this new firm hoping they'd arrive at a different conclusion.

    UAB football is dead.

    Don't be disappointed when we get left out again. We got Farmer calling AD's. South Alabama's president is meeting CUSA presidents.

    Who is pushing harder?

    CUSA schools are split. The Eastern schools want a Eastward shift. The West are resisting. Neither has the vote to prevail.

    We need to be a lot more proactive. I suspect we need to do much more Self promoting than we are so we will be the obvious choice wherever a spot opens.

    Administration is happy where we are, there is no need for self-promotion. Even if we did get offered we probably deny it anyway.

    We know our place and CUSA is not it.

    La Tech is pushing stAte, USM is pushing the Cajuns. The compromise in the west is South Al. We will get left out and T-Joe will let it fall on Farmer. Reality is that in this current economical climate T-Joe will sacrifice athletics.

    They still fail to understand that we are growing rapidly because our sports are winning.

    FWIW, all of the decent sources at UL have said LA Tech is at the very least not going to oppose us. And all of the decent sources coming out of Arkansas State have said they aren't on CUSA's radar.

    Where is our UL System rep who told us all the good will he was building by helping Tech push all their projects through the System for approval. All that was to guarantee that they would not dare to oppose our membership. Did ArkSt help them even more with the UL System?

    I'm sticking to my sources, La Trch is not supporting us. Believe what you want about political support, but it is in their best interest to keep us out.

    If you can't see that you are as blind as a bat. What political help do they need? USNWR Tier 1, more than we can say. So please tell me how do they need us to be in cusa?
