    News Star Rag

    Anybody notice the big press given to the momentous addition of Texas St. to the Sunbelt & the small sidebar about CUSA. They're already jealous & can't stand it.

    To be fair, there really isn't anything to say if nobody is commenting until it is official.

    Uh, there is nothing official in Tabby's story either other than an attaboy to Benson.

    She has a little bit to work with: Texas State is expected to join the SBC today. There will be a press conference at 12:50. Benson likes them and GA State was added a couple of weeks ago.

    The only CUSA news is from Brett McMurphy's blog. They haven't "officially" said a word about anything. No press conferences planned, nothing.

    You don't need anything official.

    Example: Rumors continue to swirl regarding a Louisiana Tech invite to Conference USA. [brief history of Tech's conference affiliation, the WAC, and CUSA]. Admission to the league would provide Tech with regional opponents and has been the goal of the athletic administration since the Eastern WAC teams left for CUSA...

    This! Expect Saturday's paper to be loaded. That is presuming that you can trust ESPN's Bottom Line Tuesday night. Yes, it was reported there Louisiana Tech, and others, to C-USA.

    The nlulm fans will be the first to tell you that when the Tech ELITE speak, TNS listens.

    Tech officials have asked TNS to hold off on any announcement until Friday, but Tech did give them permission to print a Sunbelt story today.

    Just like the Tech officials that barred ULL from the Indy bowl a few years ago according to the Ragin Doublewides...

    So I went over to the USLL board just for grins and they don't know whether to scratch their watch or wind their butt.
    Some of them are so delusional they are hallucinating and hearing voices.
    "The new CUSA is no better than the belt now" and according to one analysis of all of the teams in CUSA and the belt " UL has the best potential of all of them"
    Reminds me of the joke where the little boy ask his dad the difference between potentially and realistically.

    I'll give them the benefit of the doubt for the moment. It is official that the sun belt will have a teleconference today. The Tech presser is officially speculation at this point...We all know its going to happen. When it becomes official that we are having a presser I would hope its front page material. If nothing big feel free to flame away at them.

    I think it's funny that Benson fast tracked the TX St to the Sunbelt deal. He's trying to make it look like he got first choice of everybody he wanted. It's strictly an "image control" thing.
