I guess you weren't enrolled in Dr Bernard Bienvenu's management classes when the Harvard grad from St Martinville lectured on the difference between kissing _____e$ and kissing _____e$ for greater purposes
some call this politics which he has used quite well in the construction of the campus!!!
But yes, the state must find a way to fund it each year. I'm sure some private donations are made into it as well, but as you can see from the Advocate article, the state is burdened with a pretty huge chunk.
Boomer, you are a good Catholic. Would you publicly deny your Catholicism because others surrounding you were not Catholic and hated Catholics?
It is no different than T-Joe saying to us "We are Louisiana", then weaseling when the ULM folks whined a little. Honor is black and white. You either have it or you don't.
William Wallace could have walked away a free man and a member of English nobility by simply declaring his [and Scotland's] allegiance to the crown. His response signed his death warrant and made him a hero to every generation of Scots for the last 900 years. It also created a bloodbath comprised largely of the blood of his compatriots; But not one of those men or women went to their death ashamed to be associated with Wallace or Scotland.
UL is OUR family. Savoie shames us and OUR family every time he weasels on the name; every time he does less than the absolute best he can do to advance our university; every time he kisses the ring of the UL system or its members on issues that MATTER to our University.
He is more Neville Chamberlain than William Wallace.
"AState will make any move that makes financial sense or if there is an advantage in it. The closest CUSA is basically the same drive as the closest Sun Belt football school. Our neighbors down US49 would be appealing, but would AState shell out $3 million to join CUSA not knowing what the next TV deal is for CUSA? That would be a hard sell.
I don't in any way think AState and UL are joined other than that we share common vision and goals about the direction of athletics and share similar concerns about what teams may be added.
Am I skeptical that La.Tech would support UL? Absolutely. They share primary recruiting area. They both are trying to get support in overlapping areas, they have radio stations in the same markets. I can totally see them walking out of a CUSA meeting having cast a vote for the Cajuns after lobbying everyone to vote against them.
USA doesn't address what CUSA East seems to want (a Virginia school) but they aren't much worse than UAB for most of them to reach and they are actually a bit easier to reach for most of the West. They keep CUSA in Alabama."
The above quote from Mark Ferguson, an Arkansas State insider and the guru for all things Sun Belt contains a jewel which confirms my own beliefs about LaTech. Savoie better be burning up the phone lines with CUSA presidents to counter the poison being spewed by Ruston.
Good Catholic---I will let the Lord judge
Is it a sin to tell a lie??? Well Catholicism allows it in certain situations---I don't know the circumstances of that Monroe scoreboard situation, but I will hold my opinion until that time that I know the circumstances---maybe he chose keeping his job as president and opting for a more opportune time to fight the fight---As a learned war historian I am sure you could give me instances where retreat was turned into eventual victory---What was the guy that said "I shall return"??? LOL What really matters to our university is how he will sway the reduction cuts and keep our university moving along in this serious battle---Like I am sure it will be the case with all the effected schools, Athletics funding will have to be probably cut but we shall see what happens> And yes I am glad to have him and our financial VP leading and battling for us!!!
T, I am not suggesting that we confront Tech, only that we not trust them, and that we act accordingly.
