    Interesting scenarios you lay out, Jay. None of which really affect the Cajuns.

    If the WAC crumbles, where do you see LA Tech headed? Certainly their fanbase would cry to no end to have to even consider the "belch" as they say.

    Heck, lots of Cajun fans don't want to be in the Belt.

    If you are going to be a legit sportswriter you need to put away your clear bias of Louisiana Tech away. It just makes you look stupid. To say that Tech has no shot at CUSA is just plain stupid. Try being a professional and put negative feelings aside if you want to make it in your game.

    no Z being objective is what I expect when I read something. If the guy wants to be a legitimate sports writer, which I don't know if blogs are even legitimate sportswriting, than put away you ill feelings, and write objectively. La Tech is certainly going to be heavily considered for the next round of expansion. I am not saying other schools won't as well.

    For what it's worth, I think your claim would hold more water if it was our beat writer for the daily advertiser, Josh Parrot, writing with an anti-Tech slant.

    The blog wasn't bad. Probably didn't need jabs at Tech and FAU/FIU to make the point though. Most of the scenarios have been kicked about throughout the internet; so mostly a rehash. Things would really have to get messed up to adversely affect us though; or for that matter, to give us a good chance at "moving up." With any luck this brings about a more widespread change that give existing conferences the chance to really look smartly at the landscape and reshape more efficiently.

    Its a blog. He's not a sportswriter, he's a play by play guy and radio show host. He has opinions.

    Sorry there, Mr. Sensitivity. What I said was that Tech had no shot last time (and, regardless of what you may believe, it's true) and in the next round, North Texas will be a more attractive candidate (which, based on market size and facility upgrades,is my opinion.)

    Sorry if I hurt your feelings...but it is what it is.

    HATE is a really strong word. I would not say Jay and others on this board hate tech maybe it's more like a sibling rivalry.

    Normally people only get this touchy when they know that what is being said is the truth but they don't want to admit it.

    Hate is more accurate. I know I sure hate them.

    Dude, reduce the estrogen a bit. It's time for sensitivity training and no, I'm not coming with you to your lemans classes as well (Been once already and they don't work but I think you'd complain the whole time thus driving me crazy ) Seriously, Jay was not showing any hate towards Tech. His tone was really no different talking about them versus any of the other schools.
