    There is. GaSt is investing heavily in athletics and has a president with vision and purpose who is not going to accept failure or mediocrity.

    I still can't believe they went to a bowl last year. Sure they lost to a 5-7 team that got the nod based on their APR and probably lost a ton of money because GState draws less than a little league game, but hey, they were there.

    Wow, I didn't realize how bad they'd been this year. I constantly see the defense in the top 50 in the country in scoring defense, so I just assumed they were middle of the pack in the league.

    It is time for you to open your eyes to how horrendous the leadership is at our university. Both our president and our AD are totally inept in every possible way.

    ---I usually give all the individual mentions of success when the post comes but

    Enrollment growth to 20K---endowment almost larger than all other Louisiana system schools combined

    research money more than system's combined

    Campus beautification and added construction along with future planned use of funding

    awards for student ratings in outside competitions

    Not losing tier status like LTUR

    continued salary awards for high quality faculty

    continued endowed chairs and schollys

    higher performing entry students---higher retention rates---Damn leadership just horrendous!!!!

    RP is where Cajun fans come to read and talk about UL athletics. It is well documented how the administrations of UL over the past quarter century have demonstrated horrendous leadership in leading our athletic program.

    Although students were doing well in outside competitions previously, it is only recently that the Engineering and Geology Departments have gained worldwide recognitions in competitions like the Petro Bowl and Imperial Barrel Contests. Whether we fans like it or not, the great majority of the faculty are supporters of the current President. I recognize Athletics is a different issue.

    Mike he is still lagging in those areas Boomer thinks we are excelling in. What other people think is of little value unless they can actually claim more than a casual knowledge of the propaganda machine. You well know that Tier One was a goal that was being pimped by our current president many years ago, and it was within our grasp in just three or four more years.

    Being in that US News tier one is important to students and parents if not to academia.

    That's still a few more fans than they had to watch them.

    First, your statement is incorrect. The president is not inept. The university is still growing and is handling the budget cuts surprisingly well. That is the main mission of his job. Know who is inept? The president of UNO. Still thousands of students down from preKatrina and have gutted their athletic programs. That is gross ineptitude. Now is Farmer inept? Probably. Not everyone is cut out to be a leader of a D1 program. For your sake I hope he is let go so you can at least enjoy UL athletics for a brief second.
