Agree 100%. Do something!

If this billion dollar contract doesn't shut up the "we'll be fine" crowd, I don't know what it will take.

The AAC was about 5 minutes old when it won its first national championship in a revenue sport. The AAC was the closest thing to a real shot at the big time USM sports ever had.

To anyone who trashed the AAC idea and predicted it would fail, and said that USM shouldn't even try to get in, well, I don't usually use words like this... but fuck you.

Re: One Billion Dollars......

5 teams from original CUSA are in this year's NCAA tournament. Temple and UCF aren't in that category but are current AAC teams that got bids.

Re: One Billion Dollars......

We need to start with fixing our own basketball programs and arena before we need to worry about Judy and bids when it comes to basketball.

IMO

Re: One Billion Dollars......

GA State is a solid example over the past 4-5 years. Less about Sun Belt more about taking care of their own biz on the court.....except for tonight against Houston.....

Can't argue. It just sticks in my craw that USM fans (and maybe even administrators) tried to cast aspersions at the AAC. Getting into the AAC was a pass/fail matter for USM. Whatever...

Reed Green wants for continuing little investments. Screw scale models and fancy brickwork. Get rid of the remaining bench seating ASAP and go from there.

We don't need an 8-figure capital investment project with a bond issue, we need somebody who gives a shit and will do the obvious. Gilbo was good at this stuff, with his surplus TVs and paintbrush.

The other glaring need is better football coaches, and a real AD. Opie ain't cutting it.

Re: One Billion Dollars......

I’ve said this before Judy needs to lock up Liberty like yesterday......they have the money and are building some decent new sports facilities. If we have to play FIU and Charlotte I’d rather play a school that is actually building something special in all sports and also be able to deduct my ticket cost as a religious donation each year.....

going to 100% chair back seating at the Yurt is something that should have happened long ago....

It really is. How much could it possibly cost? How much better would it look? You've got sideline reporters comparing our arena to the gym from Hoosiers, FFS. This is just stupid.

I wonder how many chair backs that study that generated Bill McGillis' scale model could have purchased.

Re: One Billion Dollars......

I played around on Alibaba.com a little, and those arena seat seem to go for around $25. They can go lower, but we're not outfitting the whole Superdome, so I'll say $25.

It looks like, at most, 5,000 spots are still bench seating. 5,000 x $25 = $125,000. Assuming (again, conservatively) that a worker can install one seat in 15 minutes, you're looking at 1,250 hours of labor. If you pay $20 / hour, the whole job comes in at $150,000.

This is such a small price to pay when you've got women from ESPN talking about yurts and acting like Gene Hackman is about to come out with a measuring tape to make sure the rim is still 10' in the air.

It just goes to show you that Opie and crew are asleep at the hweel.

Re: One Billion Dollars......

I heard once that that the existing chairbacks came from Ole Miss. Now that Tad Smith is no longer used for basketball maybe Bennett can go get a few more from Oxford.

Oh God. Hopefully the yellow paint doesn't start rubbing off. That will be an eyesore to be tolerated for decades if it happens.

GA State coach Ron Hunter is leaving for... Tulane.

The only way that makes sense is if he's running from a crazy girlfriend. They generally don't have the wherewithal to cross state lines, and just move on.

Re: One Billion Dollars......

Saw that. Tulane is trying having hired a guy who only coached in the NBA his entire career. Failed move but still tried. Ron Hunter is making 600K at GSU. Made the NCAAs 3 out of 5 seasons. I imagine you will see his son RJ probably let go of his NBA D league contract and join his staff for recruiting purposes. Good move by Tulane. Interesting to see who GSU hires. They have gone big before when they hired Lefty Driesel.

Bama and Vandy also looking for new coaches. Same with UCLA. Rick Pitino will be back next season.
