Unfortunately, my deep pockets are riddled with holes. When my ship was coming in, it was torpedoed by the 2008 market crash.

I'm pretty sure that if my ship ever comes in, it'll be the SS Minnow.

Reasonably sure Ivey sleeps. I just don't know when. I wonder what the story of the jacket is?

SFA is hiring an Assistant Athletic Director in case any of you knuckleheads think you could be Ivey's wingman:

I'll give you a reference letter. I mean, it'll be meme based, but I've got a lot of meme cred with the Athletic department.

I don't think they're talking about anything other than the group of donors we took to Duke. Which he put together. Don't know the specifics, but they had a chartered flight/bus. Definitely made it more of a special deal for them, which every school should do for its top donors.

And then quickly acting on PLF tweets, ticket specials, etc.

This, perhaps.

Probably so, was wondering if there were any funding commitments not announced yet that resulted from it.

Right after Stanford announcing they are dropping eleven sports after the 2020-2021 season.

Ivey's reasoning & the article makes sense. Some of these teams cost so little to field relatively speaking & the students end up with minor scholarships.

And tbh, it seems like Stanford in particular was just looking for a reason to move these into club teams.

Really good read that gives some insight into what we have going on.

Everyone here understands, but I don't think a lot of people are fully appreciating what Ryan is doing and the vision he has. Leaps and bounds beyond everyone else in the league.

"Beyond everyone else in the league," and the league. We are essentially on an island in this sad excuse of a conference. Should have left when, UTA, UTSA, and Texas State did. The leadership at that time had no vision.
