    Yup. These demi gods understand only 2 things. Power and money. Take money away and power dies.

    but, by separating, they gain even more control than they have now. right now they have none, with separation they can tell the athletic department how to use the money.

    In all seriousness. The guys at LSU got it right with the TAF.Its one of the be at in the country. Why not reach out and duplicate the structure and product. Let's not reinvent the wheel. New money is the lifeblood of your business and in 10 years they have not figured it out.

    My god....we can't be that dumb in Martin Hall?

    TAF has already showed our "leaders" how it's done.

    We can't follow directions apparently.

    This was done prior to the start up of the RCAF as they had a large amount of meetings and discussions about best practices and TAF was very forthcoming on what went well and what didn't. My understanding is there were some processes used in BR that they didn't want to implement in Lafayette.

    So are you saying TAF will eventually be coming back to us for advice on how to improve their finances?? We'll come up with new and improved ways??😂

    being that RCAF is still part of the foundation, wouldnt any emails back and forth between board members be accessible via FOIA, or if it is not through a univ email, we arent privy to it?

    Think of the amount of times USL has reached out to "third party" for help with things.. (Search firms, Alden, TAF, and there are plenty other examples)..

    We've done NONE of what we've been advised (and paid to be advised) to do.

    But we're doing "everything we can to position ourselves" right? Hilarious.

    We've tried that.
    They have redacted and left out a ton of information. For example, an astute young man with superior knowledge of the FOIA process submitted a request. A MONTH of emails were left out of his request concerning the Tigue. It was obvious the UL representative that handles the FOI (I think some of you know who that is) was being WAY too selective with the information and when our person started digging further, he was THREATENED WITH A LAWSUIT.

    At this point I'm mad that I ever even gave what little extra I had to RCAF. My wife and I had planned on giving again as our jobs got more stable and better paying but ____ that. I'll just put that RCAF money into my retirement.

    Well I'm going to start by helping myself. I'm not telling people what to do with their money, but I know what I'm doing with mine.
