WE DON'T WANT TO BE PUT IN THE DOGHOUSE WITH YOU! I chose LSU-S over Tech. Respect us, back off, and we will do the same.

    It doesn't matter what the students, faculty, and staff at LSUS or Tech think. All that matters is what is best for Northwest Louisiana.
    The LSUS student-founded group dedicated to fighting big, bad Tech from taking over.

I don't even know how to respond to your second comment. To say it doesn't matter what the people that make the school operate think is ludicrous. No students means no school... if the school is even kept in existence if Tech takes over. Tech has NO set plan. You are right that someone in North Louisiana would be benefiting, unfortunately it won't be the people. The entire situation is just sad.
    You call your own student opposition to the merger small?

    In all seriousness though, I completely agree with you on your thoughts to this point. There is a lot of misinformation being spread around and a lot of people (mostly students) announcing their loyalties without even researching the situation. I love LSU-S and it's frustrating that such a lackadaisical stunt is being pulled. I understand the possible benefits that the merger could bring to LSU-S, but there are even more negative factors that would affect our side then Tech's. There is the issues with tenure, quarter system conversion, program locations (including if the Shreveport campus will continue to be), costs (also the lawsuit between LSU against Tech over property that would be acquired from this merger), etc. to the point where someone's head spins just thinking about it. I'm not against bettering our State's educational structure, but I'm not sure if this would be accomplishing that. I do know this situation is not being handled in the best way possible by the organizations involved. Thank you for having comments derived from knowledge dawg80.
    You're being told you lied, because you did lie, or at the very least you were ignorant enough to shoot off your mouth without looking up facts. Oh and Tech never asked for this initially. Shreveport-Bossier City asked for the merger because they need a strong research university to bring in "smarter" jobs to the area. LSUS has had 40+ years to do that and has failed. There will be bumps along the way in this merger, but in the end it could be very profitable for all involved.

    Also, can you provide a link where LSU A&M is suing Louisiana Tech over property potentially acquired from the merger?

    Re: KEEL RADIO POOL - LA TECH merger with LSU-S

    Read what I wrote before trying to tear it down... I called a (single) facebook group opposed to the merger small. It does not even consist of 1000 followers and is an individuals attempt speak out. No official LSU-S media outlet has shared the poll. The overall opposition to the merger at LSU-S is wide spread. The issue isn't as much to do with Tech as it is to do with the Louisiana Board of Regents. They are the people talking out of both sides of their mouth. I have no problems with Tech, and I enjoy the competitive relationship between the two schools. I can't help it if we don't have to live in a dog house out in the middle of nowhere... (See that's not hating, that's having fun with the rivalry). I'm not here to fight with anyone. I'm here to get a perspective on why Tech students are so supportive of a merger that most of them do not have any sound information on. The merger would screw with Pilots' lives, not the daily happenings of the Dogs.

    P.S. to Allgood. I will try and find the link talking about the lawsuit for you. LSU-S has tried bringing in multiple new degree programs which were all approved by the LSU system. The Board of Regents (the same group that allegedly wants LSU-S to grow) turned down or held up almost every attempt. That's where the anger is directed.

    What rivalry does Tech have with LSU-S? None I have ever heard.

    Is it the LSU system potentially filling the suit or LSU A&M?

    Neither at first chance the LSU system now that Lombardi is gone, the will kick LSUxs to the curb. LSU A&M biggest cry has been money moved from them to support the LSUxs campuses. On the BOR stuff, It takes money to start these programs. The problems has been LSUS has not had the money to move forward with the programs.

Tech talks a good game, but will not back it up with actually coming up with an official plan. Open your mind and think about it from the point of view of a Pilot. We love our school, our curriculum, our sports teams, and our community. We want to see that flourish without the scent of a wet dog lingering...

    Re: KEEL RADIO POOL - LA TECH merger with LSU-S

    Pilot, do you think the LSU-System will turn LSUS into a research university that Shreveport-Bossier needs?

    This misinformation has been thoroughly refuted. With a little research you will find that every new program LSUS has proposed was approved by the BoR. They have never been denied anything.

    A state agency suing another state agency, eh? With a little more research you will also quickly find that the state cannot sue itself.

    "Pilot" is a GREAT example of how most LSUS merger opponents are ill informed and uneducated on the issues. Must be that Tier 3 education over there. Being taken over by a great Tier 1 university might do more good than Pilot realizes.

    That's what I'm hoping! Big improvement with the rotating pics linked to news stories.
