That said, I'm content with everyone ignoring those of us who are in GenX.
I mean, we're kinda used to it.... :lol:
Being ignored has kinda been our thing for... half a century or so.

Re: Fear the Wave announces new structure

Re: I guess we all have a price. Fear The Wave Collective Defection.

We talking $85k or are we talking $300k? I am curious the dollars these recently created positions demand. I don't have any idea of actual numbers but my understanding coupled with some of my own math is Houston is paying him more than your high and Tulane offered him less than your low. So that gi...

so, who is going to Houston exactly? Kelly Comarda, founder of FTW, former Tulane baseball player, bled green and blue. He was doing FTW for free. Willie offered him a big check, he stalled and gave Tulane every chance to even offer him a fraction of what Houston offered. Tulane offered a fraction ...

Re: lsu WBB adds (now loses) top transfer

And Hailey Van Lith was not the top player in college hoops. That title goes to the one that sent LSU packing.

LSU isn't becoming UConn. Too much drama. If any place could become the next UConn, it would be South Carolina.

BSC indicated in their public announcement that they'd be working with numerous universities to set up the current students to continue. I know Huntingdon College (another religious-based small private school, in Montgomery, AL) has offered to help, I saw a social media post to that effect.
