    I hate it when priqs like this RCAF board member hide behind their wealth. Dude may be a big deal in River Ranch (oops) or where ever they live, but your days as a person of influence, if the majority have their way, are shortly coming to an end....

    What are the fears of those opposing separation of the RCAF from the UL Foundation? Wasn't it agreed upon that this was necessary to compete with athletic departments at our level and at the next level?

The feeling is that these items are best addressed behind closed doors so that some of the decision makers don't feel like they are being told what to do with RCAF.

    As of today, I'm washing my hands of any RCAF discussion of this board. Good luck to them and their future endeavors with RCAF.
    T if we back off now, how much longer do we wait for the leaders to decide this is their idea? I understand the situation, but we have suffered long enough. Time is of the essence to impliment these 5 suggestions.

    I think its more of a control issue. They don't want to feel like someone is forcing their hand into making a decision. They may feel the same way in wanting it but don't want to lose the credit for the decision when it is made if people think others forced them into doing it.

    I'm not suggesting anyone back off at all, I'm just backing out of the discussion because I've been accused of mudding the water and making if difficult for the topics to be discussed behind the scenes. When I say I'm done, I mean I'm done with all RCAF representatives and board members. I have nothing more to discuss with any of these people. I hope that all of you continue to push for more transparency and fair discussion. I just won't be leading the discussion on the subject or be accused of making more difficult for these topics to be addressed by the RCAF board.

    They believe this set up will work. They believe that the added cost to separate is not worth it (currently the UL foundation absorbs the costs for providing many RCAF "services").

    They are completely opposed to RCAF donors voting on board members (wouldn't want to infringe on their social club). They are 100% against releasing what they discuss in meetings. They are against giving details on what OUR donations are spent on.

    Because Savoie is a nutless _____, cheap bastard and overall turncoat, he has decided to brainwash his AD, his RCAF board (and make no mistake, they are HIS board) and his biggest donors (I mean friends) into believing that this is as separate as RCAF and foundation needs to be.. And it can be "successful" this way. Which is absurd.

    We've been giving to RCAF for how many years now? Coming off of conference championships in every major sport, our membership in RCAF never broke 3000. Why do you think that is? (Btw, we're currently below 1600 members). So after almost a decade of Atheltic fundraising, we're able to pay 3 salaries and a Some office supplies. And let's not forget that Mark Hudspeth is directly responsible for a lot of that money being raised.

    So how exactly do you people continue to buy into the idea that this model will be "successful"?

    That's what I thought. I lost interest in the Alumni Association when the UL Foundation essentially wouldn't let them do anything important. Now they are standing in the way of the RCAF doing the things the schools get ahead do. The Foundation was started in 1955 and is all powerful. A house divided can't stand, and certainly we see athletics stall right after it looks like we're finally getting going.

    Cali, Savoie could strip the foundation of its power tomorrow with the stroke of a pen. He does not want to.

    What a bunch of weak willed, lilly livered, yellow bellied, _______ the RCAF board members are. ____ those liver spotted ____ suckers. ____ those greedy troglodytes. ____ those egomaniacs. ____ those self serving narcissists. Done. They can pound sand. And I hope everyone follows suit. Those uncle toms don't deserve a ____ing nickel from our pockets. I have two season tickets for sale.

    Forget possible implementation. Apparently it hasn't even been discussed formally with the RCAF Board. Just what has this board been doing if these matters have not been yet discussed, much less addressed? How long have they had the Alden Report now? How pressing is conference realignment? What purpose does the RCAF serve if not to address all of these things?

    Vermilion Jacket Society. All they do is meet, smile, and pat each other on the back for what they have accomplished.

    Look, I get that things change. Business is fluid. There are intricacies involved in running anything that many of us don't know.

    I can accept disappointment or falling short of a goal, or making some mistakes. The way this university conducts its business doesn't fall under any of those cargeories. If you need examples, look at our "attempts" to move conferences. Look at the Tigue debacle. Look at the level with which they lash out at people speaking up on RP. Look at the Hale embrassmemt. Look at how they try to control local media. (Farmer calling 103.7). Look at the public lies (that's not even talking about the private lies that many of us have been told).

    Like I said, I can accept things going an undesired route sometimes. But I will not be lied to. I will not tolerate an admin or funding arm not following through on promises to its donor base. I will not tolerate manipulation of facts and people in positions of power lashing out at prominent members of our fan base that have given 20 plus years of unconditional support.

    Well, RCAF board members, Ya ll fixing to see an unprecedented drop in donations. Blame the economy, blame the floods, but if you want the real reason, find the first mirror and take a good look. Then go to martin hall and stick a mirror in farmers and t-joe face and you ll see the real reasons.. I'm so done its pathetic .. FUQ YA'll
