They have a segment of fans who were upset that CUSA wasn't calling them when WKU, MTSU and others left the Sun Belt.

    Savoie (Louisiana's president) was in his role before Scott started there, so it wasn't the same scenario as TK predating Marrero's appointment.

    Scott had a base salary of $210K when he was hired in 2014, based on the 2017 articles that his replacement was paid $295K in base salary. Scott's salary at a Texas DII school is on par with what we pay, and not near the level of scrutiny so in a number of ways I think his resignation commentary aligns perfectly with both his personal situation and the political situation he was operating within at Louisiana.

    Idea?, after 3 months on job, make public GS's strategic plan for GS athletics. Where do we want to be in 3 years, 5 years.

    I'd like to see the whole athletic department become more open and transparent. This isn't the CIA. If you want to build an Indoor Practice Facility, maybe tell people so we can get excited and give you money?

    Excellent points.

    I have no idea why forming and communicating medium and long term goals has never been done.

    This really should become a priority. People are much more likely to donate when they can visualize things.

    may not be the transparency or openness some may prefer. But I don’t think I’d say Athletics keeps things on the hush so much..

    You can't tell everybody everything. You have to keep some of the whales happy with inside info that the minnows don't get.

    I like the sound of the Klak IPF. It has a really nice ring to it.

    All kidding aside, we need to raise the salaries through the coaching continuity fund of all sports across the board. It's embarrassing what we pay our basketball and baseball coaches. If we really want to be a Gonzaga we need to pay basketball $600K, wasn't Ron Hunter making $700K? We should be in the top 3-4 salaries for all 3 major sports. Football should be near the $1M range. It helps recruit better coaches and lessens what type of schools can hire them away. Meaning I'd rather lose a football coach to Louisville than a Tulane. Same with basketball and baseball, rather see a coach get hired in the ACC/SEC vs another G5.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    We NEED to get more H&H games.

    App can do it, we should be able to as well.

    I think a UCF H&H would be awesome-and would fill Paulson to capacity.

    IMO, we should be aiming for H&H against teams like Marshall, Vandy, UCF, etc rather than playing two big P-5s each year.

    I know we need money, but a filled Paulson would pay pretty well also.

    I’d rather see a UCF on the schedule or an Army or Navy or Marshall or MTSU vs a Clemson, LSU, or BYU.

    BYU is a huge get. More so than Army or Navy. They're a former National Champion and have at least one Heisman winner. That's a big name in college football, although they're not at the level they used to be.

    In all of that you mentioned, you only mentioned one P5 (Vandy).

    We currently have Home and Homes with BYU, Boise, and Houston. Those are massive G5s as is. Would UCF be nice? Sure. But we're already doing a good job with "name" G5s. We had a rough time at first getting "good" h&h G5 opponents but we've done a really good job of it since.

    We need a home P5. That's what we're missing. At this point we're the only SBC team that will not have played a P5 at home or have one scheduled.
