    Cajuns win, no doubt, and should be with a double-digit margin.

    AMEN!..We only have one game to look at for the time being. People on here make predictions without looking at what is right in front of them.

    I remember predictions of 8 and 3 in football. Some even predicted a great basketball season. Baseball? well even the media was fooled on that one.

    You say you learned it a long time ago? I hit 60 recently and it's never been any different except for basketball when Beryl Shipley was coaching, then it was understood we'd be good.

    It tells prospects that we are not trying to inch our way back in the show, but are storming back. The only people that don't like this kind of swagger are people that don't like our program or don't like Coach Lee.

    Me likes it! Now... let's back up that talk!!! _

    What Lee did after the horrific start deserves our support and applause. Needs to keep the momentum going and maybe we can return to the status we enjoyed years ago in basketball.

    the main thing is everyone needs to get out to the dome and support this team. we always hear the story that "i would support them if they would only win." well...it's time to put up or shut up for some people around here. if you can't support this team, being as young as it is, and what they've accomplished this year, then there's something wrong with you.

    I hope that Rhineaux can get the cheerleaders to follow his board thing. I would think they would be looking for options instead of standing out in front of a bunch of people that aren't following them. On TOs, we get quiet, just as the opposition wants. Instead, we could be holding a Ragin-Cajun thing back and forth and we would pick right back up with the action.

    I'm liking it... we are the 6th man... and the 6th man wins you 1 to 4 games you wouldn't normally take per year.
    We have been waiting for a fan like you (and others that go to the games with you) to finally get those students to stand up and BE LOUD! Keep up the good work!

    I wasn't there for the WKY game, so I don't know what happened down there, except for the fact that I missed one hell of a good time.

    We've got a group of about 10 to add behind the visitor's bench. We'll be giving them as much hell as we can!

    I love the fact that if the Cajuns win this game, they are guranteed at least a winning record for the year. Considering they started 1-6, that doesn't suck.

    Default White-Out the Dome AGAIN!

    I just saw on the news Coach Robert Lee requesting that everyone wear their white shirts they got on Saturday for the game Wednesday night. So everyone wear their shirts! And if you did not get one or the one you got does not fit, then simply wear a different white shirt! Lets get a big crowd for this game and white out the dome again... and be loud!


  13. UL Basketball MADNESS BEGINS: Young Ragin' Cajuns take on Troy tonight


      As many UL men's basketball fans still bask in the glow of being Sun Belt Conference West Division co-champions, Robert Lee has turned his attention to the league's postseason tournament.

    The Ragin' Cajun coach knows better than to overlook a 12th-seeded Troy team that gets up and down the floor as much as any team in the country.

    "Troy is a basketball team that on any given night can beat you because of the way they play," said Lee, whose No. 5 seeded Cajuns (15-14 overall) play Troy (11-18) at 8:05 tonight at the Cajundome. "We understand that we're going to have to play a really outstanding game to win.

    "Our focus is on Troy because we know it's a do-or-die situation, and in tournament play anything can happen."

    The rest of the story

    Do you realize the number of excuses for not attending that you have caused to be made up....it's an eight o'clock start time, its the middle of the week, too many fans, too noisy, too many students standing, probably won't win, blah, blah,blah, ad nauseum?

    I shall be there with bells on. 77 year old bells, at that!!:

    GEAUX CAJUNS !!

    Too many excuses indeed. I noticed that a lot of BCS conferences have games on Sunday at noon and still get 15,000 to attend. There are no excuses in a town like Lafayette. It is time for Lafayette to become a true college town and support this school like a BCS program.

  18. UL Basketball TROY ENDS CAJUNS' SEASON


    UL - Troy erased a nine-point halftime deficit, outscoring Louisiana 44-25 in the second half, as the 12th-ranked Trojans upset the West Division champion Ragin' Cajuns 70-60 Wednesday in the Sun Belt Conference Championship First Round.

    The win ends Louisiana's season at 15-15 overall, finishing with an 8-6 record at the CAJUNDOME. Troy (12-18) advances to the quarterfinals of the SBC Championship to face No. 4 Middle Tennessee on Sunday at 3 p.m. in Mobile, Ala.

    Chris Gradnigo (Lake Charles, La.) led all scorers with 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting, converting on 4-of-8 shooting from three-point range. Randell Daigle (Lafayette, La.) finished with 16 points in 38 minutes, while La'Ryan Gary (Lafayette, La.) added 11 points and eight rebounds.

    Troy's Jerome Odem and Brandon Hazzard finished with a team-high 16 points. Justin Jonus added 14, while Michael Vogler chipped in 13. As a team, Troy shot nearly 64 percent (14-of-22) from the floor in the second half.

    Louisiana entered the second half clinging to a nine-point lead, but Troy quickly chipped away at the lead. Troy opened on a 21-8 run which ultimately sank the Cajuns with less than 11 minutes remaining in the game.

    Troy took its first lead since the opening minute of game when Jonus nailed a triple from the left wing, giving the Trojans a 45-43 edge with 10:47 remaining in the second half. The Cajuns fell behind by five points, 51-46, until Gradnigo delivered a 24-footer trey from the right side, brining the CAJUNDOME crowd to its feet.

    The Trojans' lead climbed to as much as 10 points, 65-55, with 1:20 remaining after Odem drilled a pair of free throws. Troy's lead reached 10 points two more times in the final 60 seconds, including the final tally.

    Louisiana opened the first half with a six-point lead, 18-12, at the 9:59 mark. The Cajuns, which have struggled on the boards for most of the season, had 11 of the 15 total rebounds in the game's first 10 minutes. Eleven of Louisiana's first 18 points came from freshmen Gradnigo and Bureau.

    The Cajuns would jump out to as much as a 10-point lead, 26-16, with 7:15 remaining in the first half. Louisiana's mid-half run was fueled by consecutive triples from Gradnigo.

    Troy soon rebounded from the 10-point deficit with a quick 6-0 run, cutting Louisiana's lead to 26-22 with 4:00 left in the first half. However, the Cajuns' lead would reach nine before the break as Daigle hit a running jumper as time expired for a 35-26 halftime lead.

    Gradnigo led all scorers with 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting in 30 minutes with three of the four field goals coming from three-point range. Gary added nine points and five rebounds.

    Louisiana made 14 field goals in the first half, while holding the Trojans to just 9-of-20 shooting.
