    Onward and upward

    I have been so excited this week and can't wait for the official announcement on Friday. It will be fun reuniting with some of our old rivals and developing new ones that are closer and exciting. It will be tough, but I want to repeat what we did when we joined the WAC - win the first year we are in the conference! Go out with a bang this year by winning the WAC again and win our first year in CUSA!

    While I am happy about this move, I hope none of us see it as the goal. It was an objective. We keep moving from here to even bigger and better. The old WAC was the first step, this is the second, and the third will be even better! Onward and Upward!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GO BULLDAWGS!!!!!!!!!

    It will be interesting to see if this move helps take us to another level. I'm hoping for another million a year at least in revenue, another 5,000 Tech fans at football games, and another 1,000 LTAC members. I know this won't happen overnight (the million might), but I think it sounds doable within 5 years.

    Absolutely correct!

    Enjoy this over the weekend, but on Monday get back to work to do what is needed to get us into the Big 12 or other "power" conference. Just like every other school in CUSA is and will be doing.

    Of course it would be grand if we were able to help build CUSA into a "power" conference itself!

    I am very happy about this years team and the move in 2013, but 2013 may not be the year some want. We have alot of Seniors on this years team and would love to have this team as the first year team in CUSA, but the 2013 team will have alot of new faces.

    With the highly touted Scotty Young coming in at QB, we'll have a GOOD chance to win the CUSA title in 2013. Remember, it all starts with the QB. And we will have a VERY good QB.

    If we go 9-4 next year, what's the odds Sonny sticks around for 2013? I hear he likes it here, but so did Dooley (apparently).

    Never! Contentment is what keeps good from becoming great. I want Tech to be great.

    I'm glad we're in the CUSA finally, but now new steps need to be taken to increase attendance, improve athletic facilities, further degree programs, and build the Louisiana Tech brand.

    Being happy where you are is the surest way to stay where you are. Boise had people like you telling them not to dream big. They never listened. We are a sleeping giant.

    If you want to "be happy where you are," then you can also just support UL-X, because they're goin' NOWHERE.

    Never stop dreaming. No one should ever be content about where they are in life. If we stay satisfied with the state of Tech athletics right now, other hungrier schools will pass by us in the next few years.
