    Yeah let's have a back-up plan, just in case, this brillant idea doesn't work out to save Tech athletics.

    Exactly. Maybe our President could even insist on being kept in the loop

    The plan is to grab our ankles. We have been spanked this round of conference shuffle. We have been down this road with more than one President and athletic administration and we have proven we don't plan, we don't learn, we just float through life in the NCAA and hope something good happens.

    Our admin needs to put on the chapstick and start kissing ass, because that's the only way we end up in a conference other than CUSA 45.0 "The home of the FCS"

    Did I look at it right? Marshall moving to Sunbelt brings them to 15 members with 2 being non football. That means they are unbalanced in East vs west. Is James Madison really a better option than us with all the hoops they have to jump through?

    Their budget is more than double ours.

    It is according to Coastal Carolina and Appalachian State.

    And spending at 246% of Tech's budget also says yes. "Doing more with less" doesn't impress anyone any more. And the next Tech employee who says that has to go.

    I never thought I'd see the day when schools would leave another FBS conference to "move up" to the Sun Belt Conference, but here we are.

    It may not be the move up they are thinking.... This is very short-sighted. That is all I will say about it.

    I can see your point, but let me ask you this. Would you willingly jump into the cold waters of the North Atlantic at night? You would if you were on the Titanic and half the ship was under water. In CUSAs case, it’s 2/3 underwater and no lifeboats. CUSA is done as a conference.

    CUSA was done as a conference when they hired Judy as commissioner. There has been a series of lame brained moves on the part of the conference from TV deals to scheduling agreements to invites. It is just now the walls are cracked and the foundation is crumbling and people are going wth?

    So many people are reactive instead of being proactive. Including our own president who is struggling to see past his own feet right now. You have to be proactive with LONG term plans to succeed in college today: online courses, student fees, athletics continuing to build.

    Presidents have to be visionaries, not bureaucrats.

    Our president was the chair of the president's committee (if that's what it is called) the last two years. Shame on him!

    I remember when we said the same thing about the belt and WAC Commish's. I do agree with everyone about Judy too, though.
