re: NCAA: 15 Division I programs face postseason bans over APR results
Some of the schools you listed are private. Also:

But yet the whole McNeese/ULL being an hour apart always gets thrown around for a reason to close McNeese.


McNeese is a much smaller school than ULL.

Supposed to be Herzing. Autocorrect strikes again.

McNeese is a much smaller school than ULL.

And? I can think of a couple of good reasons why McNeese would not be the first school on my list of closures. First, it offers programs that ULL--and many other schools in the state (agriculture and environmental science being two)--does not. And second, ULL and McNeese are the only 4 year schools--public or private--in SWLA, which has a population of over 850k (13 parishes). CENLA and North Louisiana combined (30 parishes) are alittle over 1.1 million, yet there are 7, 4-year universities (public and private) in that area.

Either way, trying to use post season bans in athletics as a reason to shut a school down is ridiculous. If that's the case, shut ULL down before McNeese. Those clowns got the death penalty in basketball for cheating. At least all we can be accused of is having some dumbasses on the team.

We don't belong in the playoffs anyway. Haven't won a damn playoff game since 2002, and several of the games have been at home as a national seed.

It’s like after we lost to Western Kentucky in the National Championship in 2002 we have been cursed ever since. Beat them at home earlier in the year and then got smoked in Chattanooga for the natty. Now days everyone looks forward to matching up with McNeese in the playoffs.

Judging by the list that's about the same as the number of bans that will result from this thread.

So the NCAA cracked down on Stephen Freaking Austin?

What they hell are they doing with SEC football and ACC blue blood basketball programs? You can't tell me anything a Southland Conference school is doing to bend the rules is worse than programs with $70 Million plus to work with.

Stephen F Austin used 82 ineligible players, not 8, not 2. They went all in, eighty-two ineligible players.

That's more players than an entire football team is allowed.

How much money and how many vehicles did the parents of those 82 players collect to ensure their kid wore a SFA jersey?

How much money do Southland boosters have to help professors ensure star athletes pass the required number of credit hours? Probably not enough.

McNeese owns ULL in football historically as well. With all the obnoxious ULL fans I've seen lately I hope the Cowboys tap that arse in September, though having Frank Wilson as coach makes that unlikely

there’s not enough money going through the Southland and SWAC to give any reason to cheat
