The way I see it....

We have chosen to play with the big boys, therefore;
- it takes a lot of money to play in this neighborhood
-all “fat” must be trimmed, which include non-revenue programs with future big facilities costs (this is undoubtedly what got swimming)
-we MUST revive football. Houston has 5 years (4 left) to get it done. I have no reason to believe he will fail. He must address defense and allow Donnie to pass all he wants. We must score over 40/game and hold opponents under 40/game. That’s modern football.
-Fans MUST return to DFS or we are sunk
-we must succeed in basketball. Dolls can get it done (first 12 games last year worried me, but I was at UCONN game, 5000 fans, great atmosphere, good, close game.) We can do it.
-baseball is already there, about as good as we can expect.
-Looks like south side expansion was a bit of a boondoggle but it’s in place so we must leverage it for revenue. It should be rented out for every meeting, prom, wedding, Christmas party we can find. Every day unrented is lost revenue.
-Our AAC tv revenue is about to increase by $5million. We must use it towards the bottom line and no more big pay increases or facilities improvements until we are running in the black.
-Personally, I’d stop paying JC and let him sue us, I’d like to see his track record exposed in court.
-we can do this as a fan base but it will be our greatest challenge ever. We MUST rally and we MUST return to DFS.
