They will not have any choice in the matter at some point, there will be no funds available from the state.
    I guess this will also affect LaTex and the other university athletic departments in the state as well. If it does come to pass, I too am glad we never got dependent on the money.

    Let me make it a little clearer...... They are not going to willingly go down a level. Did you not comprehend where I stated "lost cause".

    Point is that it will not make a substantial difference to their budget.

    Look no further than the expansion of the athletic programs at LSUA&M-E to realize this state will advance athletics at the expense of academics. Monroe won't be going anywhere.

    why is there a thread about ULM on this board? Shouldnt we be more concerned about our peer institutions? Southern Miss, Memphis, etc??

    Are you geeked up for our home game against Memphis and our trip to Hattiesburg this fall?
    Unfortunately they are not our peers yet. ULM is in our conference and their podunk school and bankrupt athletic department have a football team that is every bit as good as ours talent wise.

    What are you talking about? All I said is they are a peer institution with a football team having similar talent. I didn't say we would lose. Z asked a question and I answered. Conference mates are peer institutions.

    Academically, Athletically, or Financially. In none of these areas are they anywhere close to being a peer institution of this university.

    Ok. We are getting into semantics now. If you asked 100 people in other parts of the country and gave them facts about our two schools almost all would conclude we are peer institutions with us holding an edge in the categories you mentioned. As I said, the company you keep determines your peers.

    Getting back to football. All I know is we are middle of the pack when it comes to talent in the SBC. ULM is about the same. Look at our schedule. I see 3 non-peer institutions. One is a guaranteed win and the other two are guaranteed losses. The rest are equals (slightly above or below) to us and are potential wins.

    Jesus! Can we ditch this thread? Our own graduates think ULM is a peer institution?

    A bad year for us in football is a good year at ULM. Outside of football, have they beaten us in any other sport?
