Keep in mind our former conference members made the jump to the aac for two reasons only.  Money and the hope of staying relevant.  The money is about to dry up for them (at least to the point that the travel cost alone will make them shudder the trips to uConn) and the revelance matter was just put to bed.  Writing is on the wall.

We will be back with them soon.  Very soon.  As soon as the push comes from g5 schools requesting this inevitable separation it will happen.  More and more g5 schools are now realizing and facing the truth that we are not important anymore other than for scheduling.  The dreams were washed away with the ucf snub.   What more proof does anyone need?  The best of the g5 got the finger from the ncaa.  Regional sub power conferences are the only way to survive the impending succession.

Rankings don’t matter anymore unless you are p5

For crying out loud just stop with this crap and begin the process of separation from the NCAA. Bama doesn’t need more rules....Ohio St, Texas, USC, etc.....let the big boys go and do their own thing so one day they can prove they can beat the worst team in the NFL and have the rest of us realign and have a prayers chance of winning a second place ribbon.

I'd rather have what UCF accomplished in 2017 than any latter-day I-AA tournament championship.

If the counterargument is "a CUSA team will never do that," that's a tough counterargument to refute. The P6 thing is real.

Huh¿  ridiculous.   Every year we get further separated from the p5.  Money.  We don’t stand a chance anymore, nor any other g5 school.  Its time for new division realignment where we have a chance, a right, and an opportunity to play for a championship.  Thats why i told you minions that going to the aac would make no difference.  Ucf proved that.

Keeping it simple. End of academic year evaluation should identify key initiatives for fall of 2018.

1) Create a fund for AD buyout on Feb. 28, 2019(700K). Have deal in place for the hiring of Jeremy McClain and the return of Brent Jones commencing March 1, 2019.

2) Hire Hugh Freeze this summer in an advisory role to the Athletic Department with understanding he is the coach in waiting. Once we fail to qualify for the CUSA Championship game this fall, we begin transition to Freeze and building his staff. Hopson buyout will have one year remaining 12.31.2019 at $500K.

3) Do not extend Scott Berry. Remember when Lucky Charm extended Berrys contract at the end of his fourth straight season of missing the post season? Yeah, what an unbelievable move.....well, do not extend him again. It will work itself out.....

4) Create a committee to explore our options outside of CUSA at the end of 2018 season. Look at creating a new regional conference, joining the Sun Belt or going independent.

5) Enhance our non conference schedules. Agree to two road games, no returns with UGA, Fla, Penn St, GT, Fla St, Texas, TT, Texas AM, etc.....Remember the teams we played consistently in the 90's? Yes, get them back on our schedule. We need recruiting bait and this helps recruiting more than selling seats in the Rock.

This university needs to start looking out for itself and not let those only with self interests of simply "maintaining" lead us anymore. We have been an easy target for inflated paychecks with no accountability (Gilbert) and that needs to end now. Once we start having elevated expectations beyond competing in CUSA and begin taking calculated risks then we become something more.

Very well thought out and aggressive plan to bring USM back to some sense of prominence.

None of it will happen.

The mini Hitler power brokers in the area have what they want now.  They have NO desire for USM to advance and diminish their power and EVERY administrator we have hired can't wait to kneel down and start blowing.
