    He needs to do a little research to update the status of the two basketball programs.

    Yep, he lost it with the review of the basketball programs. Historic records are great, but it is all about what is going on today. I would say we only have 1 program moving in the right direction and it isn't the women's.

    Now, you see how you do this conference realignment game? You let others (outside your state) do your tooting. LOL!

    ALL depends on how much progress we make in the next 4 or 5 years on facilities/game attendance/academics under LG's leadership. Frankly, I think we're the "sleeper" in the bunch. Question is whether we remain "the sleeper" or if our alums step up in some fashion. TMac's leadership in developing "a plan" is most important. That's all I'm going to say on this topic. I want to enjoy the programs over the next couple of years or so, not always arguing about whether we're up or down.

    Good post.

    I don't think "our plan" will include "a bigger and better conference" as one of our goals. Our past leadership stated in a public setting "we have arrived" when he could or should have said, "this is only the beginning. Just make our fans believe.

    I am afraid you are correct on this and that in itself is flawed. While 'we have arrived' in the case of moving into C-USA, it is not the C-USA we all wanted. That C-USA is now called the 'American something or other'! While that shouldn't be our ultimate goal, it should be our next goal and we should be doing everything we can to get there. The first thing to do is win as many C-USA championships as possible in every sport! If we make ourselves the team in C-USA, we won't be there long! Just ask TCU!

    "We have arrived" was said when we got in the WAC.

    And then the WAC we arrived in disappeared. But, back in 2001, we had definitely taken a step up. Two national championships in baseball, three BcS bowl appearances, and men's hoops that never quite measured up to the potential, but that was good nonetheless. The WAC had ton and tons of additional potential too. Individual member schools did all they could to destroy that good conference, the WAC of 2001.

    LA Tech to the Big XII may not be as farfetched as many of you think. Yeah, LA Tech would have to have a great run over the next 5-10 years to make it plausible, but that's certainly possible. Just because Tech officials mastered the art of underachieving over the last decade doesn't mean it has to continue.

    Tim Brando talked about exactly this on his show a couple weeks ago, that La Tech is much more highly respected nationally than we are in Louisiana. He said he doesn't understand the local way of thought.

    Re: LaTech gets a nice mention as a possible to Big XII

    When we "arrived" in C-USA it included Houston, SMU, Tulsa, Memphis, Southern Miss, East Carolina, etc. Houston, SMU, Memphis and soon Tulsa will be gone. Instead we have UTSA, Middle Tennessee, Old Dominion and James Madison. Very much like the WAC situation with TCU leaving right away to the Big East(oops Mountain West) SMU,and UTEP to C-USA, etc. Can we see a pattern here. I remember when we left the old Gulf States to join the old Southland everybody followed and we got no separation. Perhaps we really need to aim higher. I don't think trying for the old Big East would be much of a step up. Let's just kick ass in C-USA and grow our fan base to fill the Joe and maybe then the Big XII will come calling.
