    Facilities

    Definitely above average. Kids interested in P5 APC, indoors practice facility still one few teams have. Press box bad. No, we're not recruiting cameramen.

    Skill Players: I'm down with the running backs, wide receivers. Need proven QB, but that's the norm for 90% if teams needing a proven QB

    Salary, head coach one of the top in G5
    Budget: Football budget again one of the best in G 5
    Recruiting Talent: One of the richest in the country, yes we haven't gotten our fair share, but that's on the coach

    The stadium is the players last priority. The fact is they will spent most of their careers in that APC, indoor facility and the practice fields.....the Stadium looks good to them when coming out of the tunnel with 30+ thousand fans cheering them on.....

    The more I dig on Josh Henson, the more I like the guy. I really like him actually. My only pause is why he hasn't gotten a HC job already? The guy's resume is dope.
    Josh Henson was a finalist for the Houston job last year.

    If you have never seen the inside of the APC and our IPC it is top notch on and above par most P5 schools.... our stadium, lack of winning championships, athletic budget, and game atmosphere is where we lack the most..... all those deficiencies can be fixed.... we are a program able to achieve AAC affiliation....Now we just have to make the right hire!

    I am definitely not as negative as RRM, but he has a point on talent and money. We have almost no talent other than at the WR/TE/RB position. A few other guys are legit starters, but over half of the starting positions are held by seniors or struggling players. The money situation is also tough. We are bottom quartile in budget. Frankly it is amazing how many competitive teams we field with the lack of money and exposure. In some way the new TV deals will help us because all the G5 schools will have similar ____ty TV deals like the SBC.
    RRM is 100% wrong on the facilities. They are a huge positive for our school and are not an impediment to winning.

    As if there wasn't enough Tennessee news... former Vols coach Derek Dooley has surfaced as a person of interest in the Louisiana-Lafayette search, I'm told.

    From tech message board

    "Interest" has to be a 2-way street, not a 1-lane shell driveway.

    If Derek Dooley is the AD/FB coach that refuse to play the Cajuns in the Indy Bowl and is now interested in the position as the Ragin Cajun head coach, we would be better off keeping Hud.

    The source of the DD rumor was a seedy looking guy in an old blue van that has been hanging around Ruston elementary schools. He has a half dead starving dog chained to the back bumper. When asked about the dog, he stated that he "don't never drive very fast."

    100% lie. Agent probably called Wolken and asked him to get Dooley's name in the news. Everyone knows the game by now.

    So when Maggard told you it was 100% lie did you atleast ask him who the top 3 is right now?
