    Your positivity makes me feel positively positive. Be back for football season when all this nonsense becomes obsolete.

Or, is this another "I have heard" statement that no one on this message board can prove?

    I certainly don't know the answer and I don't have the connections some on this board obviously have.

    Thanks.
    Duggie, with all do respect do you have said emails that prove otherwise? I understand why someone would ask him that question, but if his rebuttal was no, I don't would you have anything that would provide specific information, would you have anything to present that would suggest otherwise? And I mean something outside of a quote in the news paper by a decision maker. You see it simply comes down to believing in your leadership or having serious doubts based upon past results.

    For the record, I've heard the same thing from someone that had recent dealings with the AAC Commissioner. Now that doesn't mean our leadership has not spoken to other presidents or athletic directors, but it certainly seems as though they have not spoken to the commissioner.

    Those are all the schools that use CBS Advanced Media as their web host. Most if not all of the SBC schools use Sidearm Sports as their web host.

    UL has used it for MBB games for certain.

    All of UL's online streaming goes through Sidearm Sports.

    Very poor video quality, poor sound quality, bad camera work, too many replays while action is happening on basketball, and yes they shut it off as soon as the game is over, even though it is not over for me because of the delay in receiving it. Yes I will buy it again. Just wish they could fix a few things I mentioned, I am ever OK with lousy camera work.

    T, I understand exactly where you are coming from. I listened to your radio interview with Steve Hale and enjoyed it very much. He certainly seems to know what he is talking about and I have always agreed that he should have been interviewed. I heard him mention the AAC has had no contact with Scott Farmer, so I assume that is where the comment is coming from.

    My question is, can someone (anyone) provide the specific name and position of the individual in AAC Leadership that he referred to so we might be able to ask him/her specific questions regarding the alleged comment. Probably wouldn't get an answer, but could at least try. But without specific information, no one would know who to possibly attempt to communicate with. That's all.

    Thought so, but wasn't certain since the media was given the mini pads with Sidearm Sports as the actual source for stats. Last season, they went back to the old system of just handing out stats during timeouts.

    Is this a person? If so, is he with the AAC office? I'll send a e-mail to him/her if I can locate their contact information.

    Should be easy...he is the AAC Commissioner. Remember to be positive...

    I don't think that is going to happen unless those people or person is willing to go on the record. But I will ask you the same question, is anyone willing to come on the record and state publicly that our administration has been in contact with them? I can only answer what I've found out and the answer is no. I requested an interview with the current CUSA commissioner weeks ago and was told that he will not discuss the matter since he has submitted his resignation. So, I haven't found anyone willing to come on the air and go on record about contacts or discussions.
