    That's who I wanted us to hire to begin with.

    I liked Caboni a lot, as well. I liked him so much I followed him on Twitter and learned he was hired at Western Kentucky as their president. He was very likable and seemed smart.
    I closely followed the replacement search for Keel, as I thought he was a huge loss. (like many here.) I am not going to get as involved in the replacement for Hebert, as I feel like I know who his successor will be already.

You are then pretty much told, "shut up, sit down" and "tomorrow you go back there put a big smile on your face and if we want any suggestions from you WE will ask...". President Hebert was blindsided by the BOR, during his interview for job, "consolidation" was never mentioned. Not to fear, imo we have a new President in waiting, a UGA Grad, a lady with a strong background in Marketing, we will see what unfolds. If Hebert gets provost job at the Texas school he probably will be paid just as much or maybe more than what he's making here. Life goes on and to be honest the consolidation is actually moving fairly smoothly.
    I have no knowledge whatsoever about the situation, but if he were really hired without being told about the consolidation, then . . . Wow.

    So, when I said “problems with consolidation,” I meant specifically Hebert’s role within the process.

    And he apparently has been protecting athletics from budget cuts in the face of recommendations from the board of regents.

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    I'm not so sure UL is a step down from Georgia Southern. Academically, they're considered the #2 in the state of Louisiana, and even after their statewide budget crisis, UL's endowment is still triple what GS gets because of their research status. Still inhales vigorously to lose somebody to a school in conference. Hebert clearly wants the UL President job, but it probably has more to do with that being his alma mater and his home region than academics profiles of our schools. He'll either get the Provost job at UL and eventually be president or he'll take the VP job at Houston-Clear Water to get in the region and then wait for the UL job to open up. I HIGHLY doubt he's leaving because he was told his services were no longer needed.

    Brooks Keel came here from being a Vice Chancellor at LSU, BTW.

    Because he's from here. And look, now he's the president of his alma mater.

    The only way it's not a step down is if ULL intends to make an internal hire rather than actually hire someone who has been a college president. That job most likely doesn't even pay more than what he's making now so I don't see how it could not be a step down.

    of course he wasn't told to hit the bricks, that wouldn't "look" good, +1 on "for a number of reasons". Nothing what so ever to do with a "conspiracy". You got a guy who has decided, this isn't for him, time to move on. I wish the best for him. Man, he could play some kind of golf, for a little guy could hit the ball a mile.
