    The wrong sunbelt coach got the exe first.. Kudos to Ga Southern for taking control of a bad situation to win back fan support. Summers should have been second.

    One of the many reasons Scott Farmer no longer works for UL.

    GA Southern's football program is clearly in a free fall compared to just a few years ago. Summers had to go. Like Ga. southern, UL's football program is clearly in a free fall compared to just a few years ago. Yet Hudspeth is still head coach here. I appreciate his early impact and success, believed he was capable of posting a winning season this year. If our AD and University President are committed to winning championships then show a sense of urgency, act now on making a change before more damage is done. In other words it's time to cut our losses.

    "Summer is Gone" had a completely different meaning to my family this weekend.

    Moved to Anchorage in June and already missing the Heat of South Louisiana. My little girl enjoyed playing in the snow for the first time on Saturday.

    Enjoy your first true winter. Hopefully it doesn't get too cold.

    The value owed doesn't change the decision needed to terminate now. The 'royally sucks' factor to terminate immediately is higher but decision to do what is best for program should not factor into decision at all.

    Money for buyout exist. T-Joe-L needs to up the % of tuition used for athletics the same as LaTech. No other fiscal move required to create funding needed to fire immediately. The dollars for buyout exist, just need the intestinal fortitude to match the Techsters & make it an immediate priority.

    I would love to have a student fee but I have a better chance of playing in the World Series Tuesday than this passing with the tution hike as of late

    I was involved with SGA getting a fee passed for new busses. It was probably one of the hardest things to do, despite much of the student body being beneficiaries of the busses. I couldn't imagine trying to get an athletic fee passed in te current financial state.

    We only use roughly 1% of the allowable 3% general fund transfer.

    My understanding is that the buyout is lower if a change is made after the season ends.

    I'm pretty sure it drops after each game. After the season we would only have his final year to buyout. Plus the staff unless we retain certain members similar to what LSU did with Aranda.

    Ideally I'd like to see South Al get to 6 wins so they don't fire Jones. Neal Brown stay with troy for one more season and us move on to John Grass at Jacksonville St. IMO if either of the Alabama schools in the Belt open up he is their first choice. Keeps him instate for retirement purposes and gets him to FBS.
