Please don't assign our desire with theirs. Seriously, when is the last time your heard ANYONE with UL talk about the subject in an aggressive manner

    I really have no idea. I stopped trying to figure out what they are doing behind the steel curtain. They don't want us to know what they are doing for some reason and it's just too frustrating being treated like an idiot every time I ask a question.
    These smug morons don't realize that this athletic run that we're on doesn't happen. They don't realize that all this momentum should be being harnessed and used for future progress. Support and excitement will never be as high as it is right now. They just think we'll shut up and continue opening our wallets like we always have..

    They think wrong.. They have for a long time.

    If you don't tell anyone anything then when it blows up in your face whatever you say about it can't be proven wrong...

    In fact this is the last time I comment on this. Insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!!

    For those who don't understand?

    LTUR = Senator Mary Landrieu.
    Always the vote the party can count on to bring in an unpopular legislation, judge. Always votes with conservatives when her vote matters not one way or the other.

    After we are surly ice out they cry foul.

    Common sense dictates that if we're serious about advancing athletics, this is one test we MUST pass. Failure is not an option, and it only comes if we didn't do enough as far as I'm concerned. No initiative makes sense or is attainable without a conference upgrade.

    Farmer and Savoie haven't been studying. They made a few calls to their old SBC buddies in CUSA for answers to the old test. We have to hope and pray we get in based on the fact that our coaches and players bust their respective asses on the court, diamond, and field.

    Reading Chad Bishops (WKU beat writer) twitter feed about CUSA membership. The tweet below really made me shake my head.

    @MrChadBishop: They haven't shown much interest, last I heard RT @Bossman_Don: @MrChadBishop @EBER4 who's #2 behind USA? My guess is ULL.

    Who hasn't shown much interest? UL? OMG! Someone better get on it. I agree with others, SBC can't screw us any more than Karl already does... Nothing to lose! At least get your supporters behind you and let them know you are making an effort!

    Yup UL hasn't shown much interest. How true that is I don't know but I felt like stirring the pot...

    Sadly, all he has is a guess. USA still doesn't have the votes at this time, so this could be tabled for another year. That is what a few of us are hearing.
