    Notice the Suggested Timeline on his recommendations. Many are Immediate. Others are in 2016 and some are just a couple of months away. The ball is now in your court, Dr. S. No time to screw around with this if we want Alden to continue working with us. This is UL's moment of truth.

    'Immediate' was just a suggestion. We have years to get at least 1 of the things listed done.

It also comes out just as the P5 conferences are imposing the cost of pay for play on all of us.

    Not to beat a dead horse, but we needed to have acted on the information in this report 15-20 years ago. As usual, our timing is a day late, and a dollar short.

    We'll be doing well if we can just maintain the status quo over the next few years.
    I'm not saying you are wrong or right, but don't you ever get tired of always being so pessimistic?

    I bet you never drink from a full glass!!!! LOL!!!

    Well if I refused to read The Advocate because of the name issue, I'd be more dependent on very sub-par new reporting related to both Louisiana government issues and our own Ragin Cajun athletics.

    I don't remember a student athletic fee, according to several UL System Board members it would have to go before them before it was allowed to proceed to a vote.

    Not saying you are wrong, but I did present the idea of a ticket fee and was told by a UL System Board member that it would have to be approved by them. Now there has been a facility fee that has helped build Moncla Indoor and then another for the Student Union. There may be another somewhere in there, but I haven't seen it described as a ticket fee.

    That part of the report will never be released to the public. But there is nothing in that report that tells me we have the right person in place today to get it done. There are a number of simple matters when it comes to marketing, branding and scheduling that should have been done since day one by an athletic director and was not accomplished.

    $3700-"general fees"
    No ticket fee bit I'm sure that'll cover it

    This report talks about many many things that have to get done and a lot of them are immediately. But none of this is going to get done in any sort of a timely manner until we increase our athletics staff by a LOT.

    To be fair (and I say that understanding none of you need to be fair LOL) suggesting our leadership can't get it done may be valid, but how do we know when they've never been given the resources they need to be successful...and personnel is chief among them.

    I'm not smart enough to know exactly what order things need to be done, but I'll argue increasing the staff needs to be at the top of the list.

    Mike Alden is well respected...but even he wouldn't be able to get this to where it needs to be without a LOT more people.

    There were more people involved in putting this report together than we have on our full time athletic staff.

    Think about that.

    Amen: I'd love to hear why they won't do this.

    This is dated (goes back to 2013) but I think it gives an idea of assessed fees students pay.

    http://bursar.louisiana.edu/sites/bu...stionsFA13.pdf

    Just eyeballing, looks to be north of $600 in university and student assessed fees.

    I don't know if these apply to today's students. Might be the same, might be more.

    And I think tuition is north of $4k.

    By the way, I'm not seeing anything that would suggest any form of fee associated with athletics.

    Pretty sure fees and tuition has increased substantially in the last 3-4 years with the state cut backs coupled with the state allowing universities to increase tuition based on performance criteria.

    The question is, why are we still behind La Tech and LSU in tuition and fees? For starters, how about we get on equal footing with them.

    Because we were prevented from increasing our fees by the legislature to "keep higher education affordable" until the recent performance allowance. Tech also operates on a quarter system which I think does alter their accounting.

    The timing is perfect.

    A system born in wealth will fall apart in dearth.

    The opposite is even more true.
