The Sun Belt is dying and our administration is entirely too lazy to do anything about getting us in another conference. They continually lean on the excuse of "no market" as a crutch for their incompetence.
Mark Hudspeth is going to leave this offseason if any real offer comes. A lot of talk about him being pissed off. I can't blame him either, he works too hard to be held back by his buffoon bosses. Congratulations to whomever gets him.
Hud just had his coach's show tonight and Jay Walker didn't even mention any of the conference shite. In fact, he didn't even take questions from the crowd. This is after he wrote the article about how the Sun Belt should focus on basketball. He's the worst thing about our department. If he's ever said a negative thing, I'd like to hear it.
I know this will get trolled but I just needed to vent. It's not the fact that we got passed over, it's the fact that we didn't even try.
Hopefully we have a good New Orleans Bowl because when Hud leaves, we'll have a hell of a time replacing him.
The worst part is that no one is going to call them out because the athletic department will cut them off.
Congratulations La Tech fans. I'm still going to talk shite though.
When the Big Four conferences are finally formed, there will be a lot of lower tier teams walking round with their thumbs up their butt. I cann't stand the weenies but at least their administration has been aggressive, in getting the new football stadium built & now a decent move to the Big East. As to what actually happens when the Big Four is formed, just consider that there is nothing too farfetched As an old timer I recall thinking all the old Dick Tracy gadgets were science fiction, too. Once those 4 conferences begin to use their leverage, the NCAA as it exists today mite well be history. If your administrators are lazy & not thinking far ahead, then you are indeed in trouble.
If we end up with 4 "super conferences" which comprise about 64 teams, give or take a few, I would be in favor of a split. In other words, the 64 or so teams in the super conferences could play for one championship, and the other remaining teams from the FBS (Division I-A as I still like to call it) could become their own entity and play for their own title. The bowls could still play a role in all this, but you could now have FBS-1, FBS-2, and then the FCS group.
This way, the MAC teams and the teams that get left out of the super-leagues can have their legitimate shot at playing for a title.

Where did you hear this talk? I know fans are saying stuff like "I bet Hud is pissed at the administration" but nothing more
