Former chief of Dan. O governor Bobby agendas there all Rainwater. Was asked was asked to come up with some type of format some type of outline. Ethnic cooperative. Outline. And he send it out. Or some who have got to hold too. Now Rainwater is framework put these new highs go to pathology association. Calls for sixties proved to be members. They would pay a one time membership beat a 151000 dollars. And and you were almost from what I understand it must beat the mister rain war related program will be something like revenue share. Among the members who. Now a lot of schools or disappointed. In the new format. The select an ounce of that and do you think this would be good. To 601870. You can takes me an 87870. And I'm very interested to hear mr. Rainwater has to say I think this is going to be very interesting. Move forward. Ray wanna sit he's negotiating. With Louisiana State University. Put championship sites in football basketball volleyball baseball I saw ball starting as soon as 2016. And seventy. So we would beat him and see how legitimate this is an instance goose or interested. 260187. Ain't. What about the local hero. Guys in your hometown. Down to buy you in Matthews in coral.

Same thing and caught well I knew about it talk all the time about some different guys that will go play. Frankly it is one. And guys that would just good players good athletes basketball football baseball track and field. But for some reason or another date they were in a family business and defend him believe in on a college. On. You have to ramp. Leading go to cloud because this happen. These stories and want to embody not that is a several weeks back we're talking about track and field. But those local led to those ones emitted. The ones that would just great play. But for some reason those didn't get to the next level. Haskell might have been it that was it when he lifted the U and November December. That was the last time. They'll play football and they were great but they were knew that was it. Jimmy who they all from all over. Weezer and they did in your home now I got so many secretary. I mean so dominated.
