re: Athletics transfers $10 Million+ to University this FY - tigerinridgeland
The money transferred isn't being transferred from TAF, but from the department's funds. Some of those funds originate with TAF, but once transferred to athletic department, the funds belong to the university. Don't forget that TAF is the not sole source of funding for the department, which includes...

re: Athletics transfers $10 Million+ to University this FY - tigerinridgeland
Sorry, but yep. "Beginning in 2012, the athletic department has annually presented $7.2 million to the university in accordance with the Athletics Fund Transfer Policy approved by the LSU Board of Supervisors. The policy states that in years in which LSU Athletics yields a surplus, a portion of th...

re: Athletics transfers $10 Million+ to University this FY - tigerinridgeland
Money donated is a donation, but it is still university money, and absent specific strings or restrictions by the donors, it can be used as the university chooses. And but for the academic program there would be few TAF donors. They donate because they are mostly alums with academic degrees from the...

re: Athletics transfers $10 Million+ to University this FY - tigerinridgeland
So you think that the athletic department isn't part of the university? The department owes its existence to the university. The money generated by the department is in fact university money, not the athletic department's money. I am glad we have a department that generates revenue. Kudos to the dep...

re: Thanks to LSU athletics, Parade Ground getting makeover - tigerinridgeland
Agreed. We should all be proud that out athletic department does not take state funds and still generates enough money to transfer a significant amount to the rest of the university. No slap intended at the athletic department. Just pointing out it is a part of the entire university enterprise, an...

re: Thanks to LSU athletics, Parade Ground getting makeover - tigerinridgeland
"The money the athletic department gives back to the University is separate from the scholarship costs. Scholarship costs were over $12 mil in 2014 paid by the athletic department. LSU is the only SEC school donating money back to the University." Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure how the accoun...

re: Thanks to LSU athletics, Parade Ground getting makeover - tigerinridgeland
While I do applaud the fact that the Athletic Department is self-funding and even provides funds to the academic side, let's not lose sight of the fact that the Athletic Department is just that, a department of the university. It would not exist at all without the academic side. It exists to serve t...

re: Basque in our glory - tigerinridgeland
Don't really like grammar police on message boards, but I couldn't let "Basque in our glory" pass unremarked. I know what it means to bask, and I know that Basque is a language and ethnic group in northern Spain and southwestern France, so I am not quite sure what it mean to Basque in someone's glor...

re: Cholly Mac vs Les - tigerinridgeland
[quote]Agreed. The biggest problem that most LSU fans have is the lost to bama in national championship game was a huge disaster. It was, but the realist, that realized that bama was probably the better team after being outplayed in first game. We out scored them but didn't outplay them. 3 or 5 miss...

re: Ford Foundation Threatens to Pull $20 Million from Ole Miss - tigerinridgeland
Of course Ole Miss wants its own board, but given the limits on state funding, it does make some sense to coordinate the universities. And Ole Miss belongs to the people of Mississippi, even non-alums. Taxpayers provide support to the instiution and have an interest, hopefully for the best interest,...

Coach O is just not a head coach. Speaking of short memories, does anyone recall his tenure as HC at Ole Miss? While he might have grown from his mistakes in running the program there, and I would expect that he has, I'm really not anxious to hand him the keys to the car and find out. Excellent recr...
