Though in either case being of average height(5'10")and a fan of a comparable at worst athletic program I'm not really sure how that applies to me, I'm guessing you just thought it sounded good...

Anyhow, I'm still trying to figure out how I'm a hypocrite for things other people said.

Oh boy....Okay, let me make this simple for you, show me one post where you criticized any MTU fan or your administration for making similar comments towards the Sun Belt before the Blue Raider program was invited! I don’t recall you chastising any MTU fans for making similar comments or criticizing the Sun Belt Conference. I'll wait for you response.

Similar comments weren't made because the situations were not similar.

We were a known candidate for known expansion spots, CUSA officials came to our campus and we knew someone was being invited in the coming months and those in the know knew our invite was on the way.

You guys are presumed candidates for the next time CUSA is looking which is not now and may not be for five years or more, it was nearly a decade between the round of invites to UCF, Marshall et al and the most recent invites.

If there had been MT fans looking for an exit that wasn't there, they would have heard about it.

If you can't handle simply being told you're reaching for an exit that isn't there, I don't know what to tell you.

Way to misdirect and spin it Dexter. In case you haven’t read the articles, UL has been mentioned in a few as a possible candidate regardless of the recent vote. So while MTU was mentioned, your fans and administration actively belly ached and campaigned through the media and on this website. So yes, you are a hypocrite that ignored his own whiners and complainers, taking great pleasure in chastising UL fans on the subject. Now move along Dexter, not everyone values your opinion as much as you do!

Good grief, I didn't say you aren't a candidate, I've said on more than one occasion that you definitely are, but again there is no expansion for CUSA at this time, that was not the case for us last year. CUSA is not going to 16, the next time CUSA is raided this conversation can be had, but right now, regardless of if the best course of action for Louisiana is to get out the Sun Belt, even if Louisiana is a slam dunk the next time CUSA is looking, CUSA isn't looking. This time last year they were. I'm not sure how to make it any clearer, I suppose I owe you an apology. Clearly me pointing out that Louisiana fans talking about getting out of the Sun Belt are having a pointless conversation, at this time, has offended your delicate sensibilities and for that I apologize.

You are new to the fray. UL has always espoused to want to be in a stronger conference made more critical by the latest defections. So it really is not a rant brought on by recent success.

As bad as the perception is UL football has had very good intertwined with very bad, and failure to get bowls can be blamed on circumstances than anything else.

Cajun basketball has had a fairly long run of bad, but the reality is no coach at UL basketball coaching at least four seasons since the great teams in the late sixties and seventies have failed to go to at least one NCAA tournament.

Baseball and softball have always been consistently good, often excellent, and sometimes great.

Long and short of things UL has not been super, but also not horrible, we are somewhere pretty much where most schools are most of the time.

If that is truly the case it is a very valuable seat, and should not be given to just anybody.
