Tech in Conference USA future?

in
Speculation remains until movement occurs in NCAA

It’s no secret: if there’s a future conference affiliation favorite in the minds of Louisiana Tech University fans, it’s spelled with four letters: C-USA.
Will that come about one of these days?

When John Preaus was 16 years old, he shot the first buck he’d ever seen.
“I was a junior in high school when I shot the buck on Cherry Ridge hunting club, a lease my dad joined to give my brother, Joe, and me a chance to deer hunt. Dad wasn’t a deer hunter, but he wanted us to have the chance to hang out with and learn from club members and savvy hunters like D. R. Mullins and Olen Forbess,” Preaus explained.

I don’t know why this is so, but it seems to me that the old maxim “opposites attract” doesn’t really have anything to do with personality differences, likes or dislikes, different traits or different characteristics.

When I told friends I was going to Ruston, Louisiana, to celebrate my 50th class reunion, some of them said “why?” “I’m never interested in a class reunion.” Oh my, I could tell them some good reasons why our reunion weekend was so important.
First is our history. Many of us went to school together from the first day of first grade.
We added people along the way, but I’d say that most of us who graduated in 1961 had gone to school with their classmates for a long time. We have a personal history with these men and women.
