    Louisiana in the AAC, Jordan Brown is a Cajun already.
    I agree AAC is much better National exposure but we would have got our faces crushed in if we played in the AAC this year

    I know, I'm just saying, a guy like Brown needs/wants national coverage. He can get it in a league with multiple bids and bigger markets.

    Agreed! We just got courtesy interest out of respect for his father. We are a one in done bid league with no national exposure.

    He doesn't need national coverage to make it to the NBA. He needs NBA scouts to look at him and he'll get that here. Elfrid is proof that he will get seen by whoever needs to see him.

    He also doesn't seem like the type of person who craves national attention. I don't think that's what's driving this kids decision.

    I should remind you that recruiting websites are about as reliable as the National Enquirer. From what I hear the coaching staff feels like we are still very much in the mix. Are they being overly optimistic? Who the hell knows?

    See Elfrid Payton.

    I'm not stating that our chances are still in play with Jordan, just that you don't have to be in a big "LEAGUE" to get drafted in the first round. Proof.

    What if he said you were wrong. Could you summon the energy then? For the record I agree with you on this topic. The SBC is not the proper stage for a 5 star athlete. Hell, the SBC refs would probably screw the kid up by calling a foul on him every couple of minutes.
    Now if by some miracle he signs with us, forget what I said. In that case you absolutely made the right decision Jordan!

    Elfrid was a unique case. We can't just look at Elfrid and say "proof".
    EP was on team USA and exposed to a lot of high level NBA people very early on.
    Elfrid went to the NCAA tourney, adding to his exposure.

    Elfrid wasn't a possible big money guy, specific to endorsements, agents, etc.
    A McDonald's All American comes with clout, and hangers-on. Totally different situations.

    I'm not underselling Jordan Brown, I believe he can do what Elfrid did at Louisiana, and more.

    If we were in the AAC we would have resources available to all members in that league. We likely would have a higher level roster as a result. Fact many miss when they state so and so would struggle in higher level league.

    Mike I watched TooLame often this year. We absolutely would have beaten more times than not. TooLame didn't get crushed. We'd have made the NCAA in the AAC.

    I think Lanny was saying this roster would have not competed the same in the AAC.

    Btw, AAC had several teams in the top 100 RPI. Do we need Charlie to repeat our record against top 100 in the last 8 years? Did we beat a single top 100 team last year? I think one.

    I can take it. It's not enough that I am agreeing with you. Do I need to throw you a parade also?

    Yes. It is much easier to get SEC level players when you are just one rung below as far as exposure and dollars. If we were somehow magically put into the AAC we would not struggle for very long.
