    Not only did the ship sail, we blew up the shipyard.

    Do you have any evidence that TMac even knows what the AAC is? Or that we are creating our plan to improve, rather than our plan to regress, which has been working pretty well?

    No. I have no doubt he’s lost in space. But, I’ve already voiced my concerns in writing. IMO, it’s time some of the rest of you do the same, other than just complaining on a message board. This should be especially true of our fans who live within a 70-mile radius of Ruston. Unfortunately, change doesn’t happen in Ruston unless it is typically initiated close to home.

    I want Tommy McClelland gone. He has no vision, lacks energy, and inexperienced.

And as far as I know, he hasn't exactly been a Tech fan all these years since.

    It's time to look ahead, not back. I sincerely want to know what our administration is doing TODAY to get LA Tech into the AAC --or some other conference-- in 3 yrs, 5 yrs, 8 yrs, etc....

    - What is our marketing strategy?
    - How do we intend to rebuild our football and basketball fan base?
    - What is our long term conference affiliation strategy?
    - What does the AAC expect from us (requirements) if we apply for membership?
    - If the AAC isn't a real possibility, do we have an alternative plan?
    - Do we want to blow-up CUSA, and splinter off with a few of the best CUSA schools to form a better conference?

    I've got a ton of questions. But absolutely none of them relate to that dinosaur Paul Miller.
    All good questions. Problem is, I don't think we have any good answers.

    The biggest obstacle we face is our limited athletic budget. Ours is still one of the lowest in all of FBS. Our attendance at events is putrid, and it's steadily getting worse. Of course, almost everyone else's is tanking too, so that may not hinder us as much as it once would have.

    Other than being an option for a conference if they were looking to add a regional school that'd make someone a good travel partner, we don't exactly have a lot to offer a conference.

    The only viable option I see us having at this point is to try and make sure that we're included in any kind of new regional conference that may be formed. I can easily envision a new one forming that includes Tech, USM, UAB, MT, Ark St, ULL, UNT, Rice, UTSA, and UTEP. That'd be a pretty decent 10 team conference that I could live with.

    Go for it every 4th down. Onside kick it every time. Go for two every time. Thatíll get us nationally recognized and probably pull in fans all over the country.

    If we're are on the 40 or further out I am all in. Works for Pulskay Academy . We all know Skip has been just waiting for the right time to break this out!

    Actually we offer a history of winning and a national brand. Our national TV numbers back in the WAC days - when we were on platforms that had tracked ratings, ESPN and ESPN2 - were better than any school in the Belt on similar platforms. Back in 2012 if CUSA would have ended up needing just one replacement we would have been that one school. Two replacements it was Tech and FIU.

    Honestly, we've gone over this a million times over the past 15 years.

    Tech's C-USA Championship Game TV ratings are by far the best since moving to cable in 2012. In 2011 it was on network ABC, and 2018 was on the unmetered CBSSN.
