    Meanwhile, at ULL.....

    They want shovels in the ground by August. Our administration should be embarrassed by both the stunning lack of progress and the incredible lack of communication with alumni and fans regarding Q4E.

    Quote from the article: “That’s what we’re trying our best to (do) – get shovels in the ground in August,” athletic director Scott Farmer told the Lafayette Advertiser. “That’s an aggressive timeline, and we know that, but that’s what we’re working toward. “Hopefully things will fall into place.”

    Is there anything we can do to express our displeasure at the admin besides bitching on the boards?

    Email or call Dr. Les Guice and let him know what a cluster this appears to be for all fans an donors. I am sure he knows this already, but never hurts to keep his ear on this and remind him that we are all waiting. D.R. = lame duck, BVD = no power right now.

    Good, when the next football coach is being interviewed we can prove our commitment to athletics by showing him the new soccer field lights.

    The softball field work is looking really impressive, actually.

    It is their last stab to try to be appealing for conference realignment. Nothing more nothing less.

    Technically, none of our programs make money. Some generate revenue, but none have revenues that outweigh expenses. And many of our programs are in embarrassing need for improvements. Our softball facilities would be inadequate for a middle school. So, it's not like we're starving the big sports like football or basketball to give some attention to a program in desperate need of it.

    One of the many, many things that makes our lack of progress on Q4E appalling is that it would benefit multiple programs. But the biggest problem with the lack of progress is that we are at (and stuck in) the "build it and they will come" phase, where we need to turn some dirt and pour some concrete if we want to boost contributions.

    You may be right, but I don't drive an hour and a half to watch softball or womens soccer. I'll bet neither do most on this board. My beef isn't with the advancements to the softballfields, but the anticipated failure that the WAC Softball tourney is gonna be and how many eggs we put in that basket.

    Seriously? No need to go overboard. Just send them a nice card.
