    Re: Onward and upward

    In 2005, when I was a senior at Tech, I had to give a persuasive speech for Speech class. The topic I choose was "Why Tech should be in C-USA". Been looking forward to this day ever since.

    It took a while, but I guess somebody was finally persuaded! Man, I am so pumped to begin this new chapter of Tech Athletics - Go Dawgs!

    Unfortunately, in today's world, to stay content is to fall behind. I am pretty sure we have spent most of the past couple of decades being content....

    You can darn well bet the house that USM, ECU, Tulsa, etc. (in other words, ALL of the schools we want to be associated with)are all doing all they can to leave CUSA for a better conference. Face it, unless you are SEC, B1G, or Pac 12, you can improve your conference.

    Re: Onward and upward

    One of two things happen everyday- you get better or you get worse. If you are the same from day to day you are falling behind. Everyday is an opportunity to grow in some fashion and that is what make us great. We all have God given gifts and abilities and it is up to us to develop them to enhance our lives or better the lives od those around us. Should we be happy or joyful wherever we are? Yes, to the extent that we are where we are to learn, grow, or improve. we should always be improving ourselves or planning and preparing on ways to improve for our benefit or to benefit those around us or to benefit those we have been give charge over.
    This change in athletic conferences is an unbelievable time of opportunity for our university to grow and expand educationally, athleticly, and financially. We were "content" after we were invited to the WAC and what did that get us? Several years of mediocrity and stagnation. I hope that we have learned from our experience of being content then and now have a plan in place to keep the progress moving in the right direction. I hope we push down harder on the accelerator, because the simple physics of it, is that it takes more energy to get moving than it does to keep moving. Go Dawgs!

    We still lack the plan. It is up to US to insist at every opportunity that a such a plan be developed. It will not happen without an unrelenting demand from Tech supporters.

    After we absorb LSUS and become the state's second flagship in the eyes of the general public I don't see any reason not to set our hats for the Big XII OR the SEC.
