re: More about Roy King's dismissal - It was ALWAYS about the money - bfniii
[quote]There was no "contract" between the SOM and athletics for the Tiger Band budget.[/quote]i don't know if it was a literal, formal contract or just part of the process. either way, doesn't matter. [quote]there very well may be a "contract" or "memo" already in place (or in the near future) r...

[quote]that would be ridiculous if they are get stipend as well[/quote]it's like a job. if you're on scholarship and work at chimes, you get paid by chimes. same with tiger band. tiger band has nothing to do with any classes you're taking related to your major or any s.o.m. ensembles. remember, non ...

[quote]The "Quality" or "Entertainment Value" of GBFTL half-time shows has little to do with who's on scholarship or how much the "Stipends/Service Awards" are. It's 100% on the Directors and the "Quality" of their Show Designs[/quote]not exactly. the reason why tiger band has been better than every...

[quote]all the bogus charges leveled at Roy King (an LSU alum and loyal employee for over 20 years) were just an excuse to get rid of him since he refused "play ball" and allow Tiger Band scholarship money be used for other purposes[/quote]hold on there chief. i have since found out that the s.o.m. ...

re: SEC Baseball Programs Ranked Since Field Expansion to 64 Teams - bfniii

[quote]if maximizing the money is the only goal, why even be concerned with most of the colleges in the country; go straight with 2 HUGE super duper conferences putting the top 16 to 20 schools in America in each. make the criterion for membership tickets sold per game and tv market[/quote]not only ...

[quote]WHAT SEC COACH has a resume as good as CPM, much less better.[/quote]i'm not concerned about that. his postseason resume since 2010 has been a bit lackluster for being at the presumptive best program in college baseball. several other teams have better omaha resumes than manieri in that time....
