    CajunT, does Savoie ever do either yours, or BOP's, radio programs and talk about athletics? Has he ever been invited to do so? Perhaps with such an appearance he'd have a chance to shed some light on his approach to the Cajun athletic program.

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!
    You're 100% correct in that he has earned the money... And that's why he's getting that money.

    When he took over this program, he had nothing to sell recruits and was still successful and won. He was compensated very quickly for his efforts.... Fast forward from his first season in '11 to today, and he has more ammo in his recruiting cabinet than ever before. While T-Joseph's "strategy" is terrible, Hudspeth still has plenty to sell to recruits.

    As far as when he is given the facilities to succeed, 2 out the 3 facilities projects relating to Football have been constructed starting after his 3rd year. And that is in addition to his (and assistants) deserved raises. So I don't think it is fair, at all, to debate that he hasn't been given the tools to continue his success.

    When the APC is completed and its not right now, he will have most of the facilities he needs to compete in the SBC. If you believe he has been given everything that he needs to recruit to something better then this conference, we are on different planets. I'm not sure you can say that while his travel cost and recruiting budgets are being cut today. Let me also add Coach Marlin to this list as well. We want the two most popular NCAA sports Football and Basketball to elevate to the next level while cutting funds. I'm not sure you or others understand what it will take do so in the long run. I don't expect either head coach to go on the record and make public statements. I already know what both think today.

    HUD had earned his money and then some. Winning the SBC is not working miracles. I'm just kind of tired of every time something doesn't go somebody's way... It's HUD is on the next train outta here. I don't buy it. HUD isn't a fan... This is his career, and he has a damn good job right now making a lot of money in a great place. Some of you make it sound like he is shoveling human ___ for minimum wage.

    I've sat with Dr Savoie on a plane ride before, everything was off record. I'm not certain he is willing to discuss anything in public, or answer tough questions.

    I think many here, specifically you and I, are on different planets when it comes to timetables for what we expect our program to accomplish athletically. Hudspeth will be here 5 years after this season. Between Softball, Baseball, Football & Track, Reinhardt Drive wont even be recognizable a year from today.

    Also, I take that recent accepted extension by Marlin as going on the record.

    I completely agree with you T. As for CC... I want to be very clear... I would prefer that the SBC added Texas and/or Notre Dame. Hehe

    Bring in better team for home games also doesn't align with reducing budgets.

    Then I ask the question again, has he ever received an invite to do your program? If not, why not? BOP? Same question.

    While I'm sure Savoie has better things to do than read about himself on this site, he's raked over the coals here on a daily basis. I think it might be fair to at least give him the opportunity to explain to all of us something as important as to how he makes the decision to allocate general funds to the athletic department.

    There may be some logical reason why he does it the way he does, or there may be none and the lynching can continue without interruption. Of course, if he declines the opportunity, then that's his problem.

    Duggie, love your confidence and I have no idea when Hudspeth will leave this program. But, I'm willing to bet you a steak dinner it will be before 5 years. Just a gut feeling. Mm

    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.
    The math suggest T-Joe-L is only about at 60% of the commitment level to athletics vs his peer Presidents at Latech & ULM.

    Haha sorry for my wording. Meant that after this season, Hudspeth will have been here 5 years and in that timeframe, Reinhardt will not be recognizable from the day he stepped on campus to after this season.

    Seems to me he has been given ample ammo to succeed.

    Yep, ample ammo to win in the SBC. He has accomplished that, still working with a budget below the top of the conference. Ammo to succeed above the conference, I don't see how that is close to reality when he still doesn't have the top budget to work with in the SBC.

    Yeah, sorry to interrupt your pipe dream but Tulane has built long standing relationships with those schools they transitioned from CUSA to AAC with: SMU, Houston, Tulsa, Memphis, Central Fla, East Carolina. The only way Cajuns get into AAC is if Tulane is no longer a member...

    I must've missed where he won the Sun Belt?

    Tulane will not block AAC membership. I don't know where you got that info, but it is wrong.
