College athletics is a business and only getting to be bigger business. I suggest we do what we need to do in baseball and softball to make sure what's happening to us right now in basketball doesn't happen there. Or we can sit back and let it happen and the do the old "we don't know how we got here" Imagine if we would have had forward thinking in basketball 25 years ago, we could be a Gonzaga butler or whichita state, at this point I'd settle for Belmont or Vermont. Human are copycat by nature, history repeats itself over and over.
    Let me tell you a little secret. We are one rule change away from being irrelevant in both baseball and softball. When the money is good enough, the NCAA will make baseball and sotball headcount sports, and allocate maybe 25 scholarships for baseball and 35 for softball. That will completely change how players are recruited in those sports, and we will be competing for Louisiana players with P5 schools from all over the country. TOPS and out of state tuition will no longer be recruiting barriers for out of state programs, or recruiting aids for us on Louisiana prospects.

    The P5 and its lackeys at the NCAA will lock us out of those sports as well.

    We are one rule away in every sport from being irrelevant in everything. It's currently happening in basketball right before our eyes. It hasn't happened in baseball or softball yet. That's an even better reason to position the programs properly before it happens.

    It will be perceived as such. Does not matter. This coach is not going anywhere for the next three years and we won't cut support not only anytime soon but the foreseeable future. That is the case no matter how many times you advocate we should. The approximately five of you who have that view are not large enough of a group or influential enough to have any impact. Note, I am not either for what I advocate.

    I used to think there was no chance that happens. However I recently spoke to people with knowledge of college sports who told me that is a real possibility. Would be unfortunate.
