    At any rate I think that we are going in the right direction and this year could lead to great things for the Cajuns. Troy lost alot of players and we can hang with FAU. True we need to improve on the defensive side of the ball and this can and will happen. Fouq's had them going and thinking right thru spring and I do believe that the team will carry this attitude and entergy into the summer and fall.

    I'm sorry, but when you are outside of the top 80, it's just shuffling crap around. I see it as "someone sucks worse than us" in the minds of the prognosticators and that's about it. For that reason, I think nothing of our ranking except that it is time to improve things massively.

    I share your hope however. Geaux Cajuns!!!

    I'm indifferent to our ranking. There is no way to differentiate between #90 and #117.

    Good point, either way it's no where I want to be...

    You're also talking about a preseason ranking. Not one down has been played on the field and we've shown that rankings don't translate to our performance on the field like in 2006 when we were supposed to have a very nice year and disappointed after a 4-2 start and a win over Houston. The fact remains, until we go out and play better, we're not going to make any strides with this program

    4) If we are able to find a defense in the next 2 months, maybe we could start searching for a few other things:

    -Jimmy Hoffa
    -The Holy Grail
    -An end to the 2000 year Arab/Israeli War.
    -A cure for Cancer _
    You handle the defense part; I'll start on the others and likely will finish before you. I have no reason to be even hopeful for this year's team. So maybe we'll do OK.

    I have no expectations for the football team. Could go 8-4, 2-10, 6-6. etc.
    Will the defense be at least acceptable? Can the special teams be better than o.k.? Can the offense complete some passes? I don't know.

    yep -the mags say we are bad so lets just cancel the season.

    If I believed in all the mags say I would be watching the cajun baseball team in the super regionals right now.

    I think this team may surprise.

    Beat Southern Miss.

    If I'm counting correctly, I counted 13 returning starters for us and 12 for FAU. That's the count I got from the predicted Scout.com depth charts at least.
