    This may even come with the understanding that they will only schedule each other

    It's coming, it's not if but a matter of when
    Josh Parrott, who writes for Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, was on Fox's afternoon drive show in Ruston last week.

    He was asked about the Big East and what type of impact the P5 media money ($50 to $90 million per school per year) would have on the Big East 5 years from now. (Big East TV deal pays each school $5 million per year).

    He said that in 5 years there simply won't be a Division I the way we now know it. The P5 would break away and may or may not take the Big East with them.

    Pretty sobering.

    Not an abomination IMO. May not be exactly what I would want but it could be worse like leaving it as is.

    Don't know of any recent engineering studies, but that ones I was made aware of in the late 70's said bowling in the north end was not an option because of the underground creek.

    Well, when your choices are between an empty stadium located in a large tv market vs an empty stadium in a small tv market. Itís not a hard decision. Maybe if the small tv market school had a full stadium and a passionate fan baseÖ Yea, I dreaming and speaking in hypotheticals.

    I agree with you and the I understand that but, you have to understand that there are a lot of moving parts and pieces that a visiting team must deal with when going to another venue that costs a lot of money. For football they are moving 100 plus peeps and equipment associated with that to include the lodging arrangements and transportation of those et al to and from the Joe. The AAC construct was that the program MUST be in a major metropolitan area and Iím sure for that reason is why Tech was not included in that expansion even though the airports in Shreveport and Monroe are less than an hourís driveÖbut, Iím assuming that!

    No, you are just making excuses of why La Tech got left out.

    Not only that but the drive through Shreveport and Bossier City on I-20 SUCKs! If you have a kidney or gall stone, that drive will definitely shack that mofo loose!

    You'll probably pass that stone at the Sibley or Minden exit!

    Or just drive over the cooktown bridge over I-20. You can skip the chiropractor after crossing that sucker.

    Take the 220 bypass. It’s like a minute longer and much smoother.

    You just need to make a pit stop at Hamburger Happiness in Dixie Inn. The original owners kids were Tech alumni, may still be. I haven’t seen them in over 20 years.

    Hell, if the Hoffosses still own it La Tech should reach out to them about cost sharing some billboard space on I 20. Burgers, Southern Maid Donuts and La Tech could be a winning combo.
