There is a rumor going around that ULM will be merged into the La Tech system. Any truth to that or is it complete BS?

Not a ULM fan but I am almost certain that the rumor you heard is BS.

Yeah, It's probably BS, but that is what Tech fans are saying:

The latest out of Ruston is that the expansion is tied into the new bill that Blanco is drawing up similiar to the state of Texas' where sports venues are to benefit from rental car taxes. Oakes has helped convince her that Tech is eligible for these funds as a state venue. The tie-in to S'port is that they will recieve compensation for Tech's games by recieving those same funds to offset funds already spent on the new transition of Indy Stadium.

The increase in athletic budget is tied into our taking over UL-M within three years as the La Tech-Monroe campus. Those athletic teams and will be merged into ours. This was set into play during the recent audit of the U of L system with UL-M and Grambling both being targeted for inclusion into the new La Tech System on the drawing boards. This was a compromise with north Louisiana legislators for funds being pumped into south Louisiana schools over the Foster administration. Blanco is very close to the U of L system and knows the short falls. She thinks that Tech will emerge as a strong second tier system to LSU's and is willing to help us. I also hear that F Jay Taylor is coming back as the head of the new system.

This is all very hush/hush so please be careful with who you tell.

Now i'm not all that familar with LA politics so I was wondering if there is any validity because it all sounds like a bunch of bull.

Now that is funny, hush hush but posted on a message board 03-confused LaTech is our oldest rival and one I love to see us play in any sports but IMHO they are dreaming if they think ULM and Grambling will become part of a LaTech System. In all honesty to have three universities that close is not very smart and to merge all three would seem to make sense but I see no way the alumni of those schools and the politicians in that area ever, ever allow something like that to happen. A couple of years ago there was a rumor that LSU would take over ULM, just like this rumor it was all BS.

Both ULM and La Tech are a part of the University of Louisiana System.<a href='http://www.uls.state.la.us/' target='_blank'>UL System Schools</a>. If we are talking about something different, then I'll delete this post.

You are correct but the posted message from BB&B refers to a new LaTech System being formed with Grambling and ULM as branches. I don't see it. :rolleyes:

I don't see the new system forming. LSwho will throw a fit, get their way, and then run off with some more money from the taxpayers. The monopoly known as LSU A&M College @ Baton Rouge will have their way, once again.

Ya think those Techesters like to start rumors? Man, they got new stuff up every day about getting into CUSA and the MAC. Now this stuff about creating the LTU System. They are crazy up there in Southern Arkansas (to me, anything above Alexandria is Arkansas).
