    I think Danny may have the article.
    If anyone can scan the article and send it to me it would be appreciated. I have it somewhere, well I think I do, but it is packed away.

    Thanks

    Still not able to find it on their website, but I will keep looking. In the mean time if someone wants to let me know the issue number or year, it would be easier.

    Thanks again everyone

    UL Basketball Re: Red Dots

    Here is a quick blurb about them from November 29, 1982, but I am all most sure they had a story on them and not just mentioning them.

    Southwestern Louisiana has six of the top seven players back from a team that opened the season by beating Georgetown, Washington State and Marquette to win the Great Alaska Shootout. Junior forwards Graylin Warner and Dion Brown return, with averages of 15.8 points and 8.5 rebounds, respectively. The Ragin' Cajuns, whose fans wear T shirts with big red dots on them, will play a spotty schedule in their first season as an independent, so they probably must win at least 22 games to earn their berth.

    There was an editorial in the Milwaukee newspaper after we played Marquette one year.
    Chastising Marquette fans for sitting on their hands while applauding Cajun fans.( mentioned the Red Dots)

    This may be the article I am thinking of instead of Sports Illustrated. Hey Cliff. Remember that Hank Raymond was the Head Coach of Marquette the night the Cajuns beat them in Blackham and after the game an Assistant Coach came over to talk to us named Rick Majerus....

    I have that one somewhere at home (picking my brain at moment). I found it and sent it to BOP during the Shipley gathering a few years ago.

    I have read where someone said the dots were 6 inches in diameter.

    I am pretty sure he told me this shirt was an original, so my guess is the dots were closer to 9 inches.

    I'm the character without the red dot on. But I do have my favorite College World Series T-Shirt!
