    It's odd to say this but considering our recent success 8-5 is the absolut worst we should do and that would mean losing all our toss-up games..... If it ends up worse than that then Houston we have a problem

    I agree with you but I think last year's defense was actually better which scares me. OSU was a travesty as was the Arkansas game. I do think that KSU will be better and to me, a better barometer of where we are. I think that our conference is top heavy and we need to win 2 out of the 4 tough games I think we will have in it along with not getting tripped up by USA and we get 8 wins but I can see 7 wins with some bad luck or just a lack in improvement.

    You can compare the facts that we did little to nothing good on defense in either game and one difference is that last year's defense was better than this years. I take that back. There was one positive in this past game. We did hold them scoreless for the last quarter and a half but that's about it.

    I'm not sure where you see that this year was a could of should of scenario but OK.

    Also, my point attempted to stretch the entire season. Last year's defense was better, certainly at this stage but they had much more experience and some pass rushers which we don't have this year. They ended up being, statistically, one of the worst teams in all of FBS football against the pass. Point is, if they were that bad with that amount of experience, we have a long way to go this year just to be considered a bad defense.

    Arkansas killed us. This is a program with so much talent that last year they were picked pre season as one of the best in the country. Then is turned out they were very poorly coached. Now they have the same SEC talent but are very well coached. The hope here before the game was that it would take a few games for them to settle into the new schemes and that we would be sharp since we are in the third year of the HUD program. Turns out they were sharp and we were just enough off that we couldn't overcome the talent gap when the other team is that well coached. I don't think I learned anything much from last week about our team other than we are not ready to beat a talented SEC team that is well coached yet. If we get manhandled again by Kansas State, I'll start to get a little worried. But now, meh....Hud will have them ready to go.

    One score in the first :18+ isn't a travesty either.

    Its the next :17 that sticks out.

    I think UL gets past KState and then there are 2 games to key on. A State & Western Kentucky, with Western being a larger concern because of Patrino's pass schemes. If UL can win both of those, or at least split them, then they are the conference champs this year.

    UL Football Re: Your pre-season prediction...

    WKU IS LOADED. Their running back had over 1700 yards on the ground, and was the conference leader in all purpose yards. Their qb is very good, they have an NFL prospect at linebacker. They have a coach who can spot weakness in all defenses he has played. Willie Tagatt was did an outstanding job of stocking the cupboard before he left, and added to all that our defense is not ready in several key areas. We will be a road team in an irregular game day. This will be a bear of a game to win.

    ASU will be loaded, and again a road team in an irregular mid week game.

    We can win both but we gotta improve all aspects of our game a lot.

    Troy another trap game, a ESPN U national game on Thursday. We play on a short week, while the Trojans play after a seven day layover.

    Then when we play MoanRow Hoax we better be playing for something because they will absolutely have revenge on their agenda regardless of their record.

    Do not forget about Texas State who beat Southern Miss this past weekend. They have some ball players on defense

    I feel ashamed....I picked 8-5. Although I picked different teams to lose to.... It's my fault.

    Who posted, at the beginning of the season, the poll of "What will the Cajuns end up this year?" and listed 12-0 through 0-12? I would love to see the final results versus reality. I guessed 9-3. 1 off!

    T-Bine can call up the pre season prediction thread and that might be fun---I might have even said a best of 9-3 and worst of 7-5 and maybe an 8-4!!!!
