  1. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-nfl-lawsuit-idUSKBN17E2D3 The city of St. Louis and other regional groups on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the National Football League and all its teams and owners, claiming the league violated its relocation guidelines when it allowed the Rams to leave the Midwest city. The city, St. Louis County and the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, in a lawsuit filed in Circuit Court of St. Louis City, is seeking damages totaling more than $1 billion for the move by the Rams to Los Angeles from Missouri last year.
  2. same as your analysis of a football team 05
  3. I do it mostly because I know it will make 05 get riled up.
  4. The A-10 has been a temporary conference for us for too long. Big East makes the most sense for us. After that I'd consider starting a football program and joining the AAC. It would be interesting to see what the financial analysis would look like with the Rams being gone. St. Louis is one big city / media market without a NFL or D1 football program. If Dayton can support a football team, I think we can. It would definitely take another Chaifetz sized donation for it to happen though.

  6. Andre Miller retires and finishes where Rick Ma left off at SLU.
  7. People keep referring to a "splash" hire, but all the names being thrown around are repeatedly discussed in the PD. Jaw drop hires would be Bo Ryan, John Stockton, or Grant Hill. (all near impossible and hence "splash" hires)
  8. I'd rather see us make a push in a few years for the AAC if the Big East isn't letting us in.
  9. What is high on the salary scale? Who are we talking about in the $2 million+ range?
  10. How you graduated from SLU I'll never know ...Oh wait, 8 years later and a communications degree.
  11. The 3 phases of truth: First, you are ridiculed Second, people begin to accept Third, people say that's the way it always should have been
  12. What is the marketing value in the media exposure, etcetera of a top 60 football program? 4% of college bound high school grads have heard of St. Louis U 38% of those believe it is the same as UMSL A football program would do way more in a week than 4 billboards on a farm in Illinois along I-55 could do in 50 years. If we could make a better team than BC we would have the best Jesuit football program in the country and Mizzou would basically be irrelevant.
