    TV dollars will continue to be an issue for the G5 schools. I wouldn't be surprised to see the dollar amount per school decrease more in the next round of negotiations. What happens when the TV contracts are renegotiated will influence the next set of moves and lack of $$$ will silence many egos.

    Agreed. While it's probable TV revenues will flat line at current levels, some sort of UL alignment with CUSA West should generate more fan interest so we can grow our athletic programs. Who knows how things will shake out.

    These speculative articles about regional alignment have been appearing about every 3 months for last several years. For now, it seems they are just wishful thinking. I have stopped taking them seriously. When and if something real happens, then we'll see how UL shakes out. So far, it seems that UL has had some kind of pox when it comes to realignment, but perhaps the new AD can change that.

    Regarding our pox to conference realignment, it is unfortunate that has been the case in the past. However at this time, the SBC finished higher in both football and basketball this past year. TV revenues are about the same. That is why recent stories in reference to realignment are being given more credence at this time.

    This is going to happen, one way or another.

    Parity in the geographically re-aligned conferences is pretty remarkable. Savings in expenses even more so.

    I read today that Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner completed the "final step" in his gender change to the "point of no return." Is LTU's and ULM's membership in the same FBS conference similarly possible?
