Anybody Listen to the WAC Podcast?
I'm checking out my first episode today. Lots of great content. Does anyone else check these out regularly? I wonder if it is worth listening in on future episodes, or maybe I just caught a rare good one?

Also, for as much criticism as GCU radio and television broadcast announcers deservedly receive, Scott Williams offers very balanced and honest perspectives on a variety of topics in this interview. Lots of "Last Dance" talk, too, as Williams was on the early Bulls championship squads.

I haven't, but I will! Surely they've got to talk about WAC football, sooner or later. I'm dying to hear some real unadulterated news on that subject. Thanks.

Listened to Lonn's 4/21 interview, and boy oh boy, it just makes me even more confident about Tarleton winning, and winning soon, in this league. Lonn sounds fired up, fully prepared for the transition and knows exactly what we're getting into. Our D1 transition plan, feasability plan and buy-in money wasn't due to the NCAA until June 1, we sent if off on 4/27. Heres a link to it:

Please do yourself a favor and skip to 17:45

The host sure does like to hear himself talk..

Thanks for sharing. Lonn is a good listen, and love hearing that TSU is looking to forage their own path into D1. It probably shouldn't be all that surprising coming from a TX school, in that the whole state seems to take great pride in being ruggedly independent. Not a thing wrong with it, either. Texas forever, baby!
