    Don't know why there's such an avid AAC interest in here......even if there was an opening, yall do realize that Tulane would never allow Cajuns to get into AAC, right?! They prob would fight against Tech too.

    We, as in UL, need to be interested in any conference not named Sun Belt.

    If and when Coach Hud moves on, so be it. He has done miracle work here, and if he seeks a bigger stage, more power to him.

    If some people think that will be the end of the line for us, they will be sorely mistaken.

    No, it won't be the end of the line; but it will be another grave marker on the side of the road to the bottom.

    But yes, the brand has exponentially been elevated over the past four years.

    so what you're saying is, the next coach we hire will not be a good one?

    I'm glad I read pagin today. I didn't realize HUD was the only coach in the country capable of winning football games. I guess the sky would completely fall if we lost him...

    As far as T-Joseph holding money, no debate here.
    He is paying his coaches. ..that is one thing he has gotten right. But his programs are another matter.

    I realized that when Tech received the votes and they announced they were leaving. At that point they could have cared less about CUSA or Tech.

    I love HUD and want him to stay for a long time and be successful but I can't agree more. With what has taken place in recent, many good coaches would love to take over here if HUD left.

    You do realize that pretty much everyone else in the AAC would love us in their conference and couldn't care less about what Tulane has to say?

    That's what was told to some during the APC tour recently and at the RCAF function. Build facilities. ..wouldn't you be doing that anyway to compete at any level and because you are charging fees and RCAF membership for parking and tailgating?

    I just don't see that at all.

    Hud, when he leaves, will leave behind a progam that is light years ahead of where it was when he first walked through the door. Much better facilities across the board, much higher athletic budget, higher coaching salaries across the board, greater fan support and a winning tradition that Cajun fans now not only enjoy but will demand going forward. I'm not saying Hud's responsible for all of those things, but the foundation he's built will be capable of taking us to the next level.

    Our next football coach will be the most important hire in the school's history.

    About a 100k a month?

    T, I think we're on different pages here. My comments were towards Hudspeth, not a defense to T-Joseph.

    You made a comment that fans not only expect, but demand Hudspeth (& Marlin) to out-recruit others just b/c we are building the APC yet at the same time we are having to bus to Arkansas.... My rebuttal was, I expect Hudspeth (& Marlin to a degree) to out-do our peers in the SBC in ANYTHING b/c we are paying him double the median salary in the SBC (not including bonuses). His contract is for $4,000,000 according to http://sports.newsday.com/long-islan...|o:c=college;|. The median contract for every other coach in the SBC is $2,045,119. When you're being paid that kind of money, I personally don't care what he has to do to sell kids on our program. Make it happen.

    Again, as far as T-Joseph holding money, you will never read me debating (in his defense).

    This is great news, Someone within the University actually publicly stating we are working towards another conference.

    Can't argue with that. But I was under the impression T-Joseph isn't really trying to grow athletics. Why would he build facilities to compete at the SBC level, but not any other conference? That doesn't make much sense. That's not really a question I'm expecting you to be able to answer, but just something ain't adding up.

    Hud is getting paid $1 Mil per year to win games and bowl games. He has done that and more when you consider he is leading the way for Phase 1 to be completed and went out and raised the funds. The fact that you don't care how he has to sell kids tells me your are totally oblivious to what it will actually take to get better athletes on this campus, or if he is actually getting what he needs to accomplish your standard. And that is my problem with many on this site. We are building an APC, we have culture, great food, great people, academics and now stipends, so what more could a coach possibly need to reach the next level? I'm not sure, but we will know when we get there. Right now, we are simply playing catch-up to many college programs, forget the SBC.

    He's done his fair share in moving this program to where it is today. Hell, he is the best fundraiser on campus. Is it too much to ask to the president to not just pay him or the other good coaches on campus, but to actually not cut athletics while he squeezes RCAF donors further and sits on $6 mil? I get it, you and others want him to perform miracles because he is getting paid $1 mil a year. When he is given the facilities and funds to elevate this program to a higher level, I will be more of a critic. I have treated him no differently then I have Coach Robichaux, when some people wanted him fired several years back. My expectations for Coach Robichaux will be greater when he is given the facilities and funding required to compete with the top mid-majors yearly. Until then, the blame lies with the person who controls the purse strings and I don't care how he gets it done either, just get it done!

    I don't believe he doesn't support athletics, I think he wants to push athletics to become more self-sufficient before allowing it to become compatible outside the SBC. If he is willing to push this program further, why is he sitting on a large portion of the state transfer? I can only look at his actions in context of what other state programs are doing. Is he all in for athletics? Right now, his actions tell me no.
