Let Tech Starve...
After reading this article, I am now dead set against inviting Tech to rejoin the SBC. The nerve of their AD to continue to insult the SBC while his university sits in limbo. Let them starve...let them go Indy, load up on a ton of money games, not play for a conference championship, lose out on recruits, and die. I hope they have enough money to pay to broadcast their games on the public access channel.

I didn't need to read that (which I did) to reach the same conclusion. Let them go independent before letting them back in the Sun Belt.

Then you will happy to know that Dr. Reneau has told several SBC presidents in the last few days that their prerequisite of their joining the league is the expulsion of ULM. Of course they were laughed at and told there will be no prerequisite to join the SBC.

My feelings are at this point,that Tech is taking a big risk to save face with their alumni. If they return now to the SBC, they won't be able to justify joining the WAC in the long run to major financial backers. They hope that their work behind the scenes to build alliances with CUSA members will pay off in the end. So, they are willing to risk everything in the short term for a chance at a possible invitation down the road.

Best of luck to them, but its time for the SBC to move on by inviting NMSU. If they chose to sit it out in the WAC as well, then the SBC needs to stand pat at this point and wait for some of the FCS programs to commit to playing FBS football. No need to extend any invitations until such commitments have been publicly and funding is in place.

RE: Let Tech Starve...
Have to agree.

After reading the LA Tech board and comments from thier adiminsistraion its clear they do not want a 'Belt invite under any circumstances. They would rather starve.

So be it. If they get into CUSA great, If they stay in the wac and "dominate" a high end FCS confrence that the WAC will become, good for them. I no longer care AT all what LA Tech thinks or does.

Good for the 'Belt rejecting any thoughts of booting ULM to accomdate someone.

We dont need LA Tech to prosper as a confrence. We are stable with what we have.

RE: Let Tech Starve...
As many engineers as Tech produces, I would think they could grasp simple timeline analysis.

Tech doesn't have two years to make a decision to avoid independence. Boise is out July 1, 2011 and Nevada/Fresno at least by July 1, 2012.

Tech has to sign a basketball class in November, mid-year jucos in December, freshmen football players in 2011 and second basketball in April 2011. They will have to sign those classes with other schools pointing out they likely don't have a conference, likely have no bowl ties, nor automatic NCAA bid starting Fall 2012.

By July 1, 2011 about 10 months from now, if they don't have a conference lined up, odds are against them finding a home where they can start play in all sports in the Fall of 2012.

Each day that passes equals greater uncertainty for Tech and they recruiting efforts. If I'm AD at a school and I find out any of my coaches are recruiting against them without mentioning the possible loss of post-season access, I'm firing them and hiring coaches that want to win.

RE: Let Tech Starve...
first of all I didnt get any of that from that article. It sounds like just another pro ULM writer trying to as he says "speculate" "read between the lines". Trust I am sure that Tech will go Belt before going Independent but right now we are in a big wait and see and it would be stupid with the current landscape to move over to the Belt now when you might be moving again. When the dust settles if Tech is not in CUSA they will go belt. Can almost guarantee it, unless the WAC invites a whole lot of Texas teams and waves a carrot to get us to stay but I doubt it. All this die before Belt stuff is coming from fans not the administration. They would be stupid to actually say we will never be in the belt.

All because La-Tech WANTS in the Belt doesn't mean they would get in. I'd be interested to see how the presidents voted. La-Tech would only be a poison to our conference.

whatever. everyone of your schools would jump ship if they got an invite from CUSA. So get off Techs back. why move to the Belt, when their may be better options. And no I don't think INDY is a better option.
