All students take a deep breath.................................Now quit studying so much, you guys are trying to kill yourselves. Who takes more than 12 hours a semester anyway? I spent most of my college career at Marley's and the Bulldog. I even wrote a paper once on the bar at Napolean's in New Iberia. Plus, one of my drunk friends went ahead and reviewed it for me.
It was an exhibition game that meant nothing. I'll be at the game Tuesday and I am sure more students will be to because they heard about the blowout this week. DAMN I can't wait for Saturday!
... and one time, at band camp...
My typical schedule back then - commute for 40 minutes, go to classes at 8, 9, 10, & 11 a.m., commute another 40 minutes, work from 1:00 to 6:00, commute 40 minutes to play intramural basketball or floor hockey, or attend a basketball game, brews at Bike Rack, Keg, JR's, etc., commute 40 minutes, study, do it again tomorrow. Then work on Saturday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. (by the way - it was dirty, sweaty, greasy hard labor - not sitting behind a computer or sitting behind a cash register and reading a book most of the time)
Some semesters I was fortunuate to schedule 5 classes all on MWF. Then I would work from 2:00 - 6:00 on those days and 6:00 - 6:00 on TuThSa.
I am now 46 and I'm sure that only a handful of students could keep up with me.
cajun1300 vs. "the rage cage" greco-roman style is the only way to settle this I'm afraid...
We rip on athletes who lose their eligibility because they are too lazy to take care of business in the classroom.
We rip on students who don't blow off their studies so they can go watch those athletes.
Nope, no disconneect there!!
I went to a "RAGE IN THE CAGE" GAME AT THE Cage Dome about 20 years ago. Forget who we played but remember the name.
BTW....For the student crying about all the class work he has.....I graduated from UL in 2004 and I didn't have any problems with attending football, baseball, and basketball events and maintaining a good GPA. If you are struggling with time management in school, you may have a tough time after you graduate. You tend to have a little more on your plate.
I'm a season ticket holder but I sit in the student section, so it's my fault that the other side looked empty.
And what was it you graduated in? I'm not calling you out or anything but it is common knowledge that some majors require ALOT more work than others. Engineering is a ton of work... also any Visual Arts majors are constantly doing projects... so I don't think you can fairly say that you know what students are going through. However, I am a student and I don't miss a game.. so have no fear.. there are still some students out there that are die hards.. I've been going to games since I was a kid.. I'd go with my brothers when they were students and sit with them.. I know how great the student section used to be. I have a feeling the more we start winning, the more students will come.. give it time. I have a strong feeling that the dome will be packed by mid-season. This team has a ton of talent and they were on a roll last year.. they will carry it over to this year and have the same attitude. After we beat Tennessee and LSU on the road crowds will be gigantic.
Okay "Rage Cage" get your buddies! Get your girlfriend! Get your Roomie to the game! The students that were at the game last night were very vocal but 300 students from a University of 17,000 students is weak. School is out, no more tests, get a dome foam and support the Bball team that is looking pretty damn good right now.
Man we had a blast last night, not a great turnout but the people who did are loud and are always there. If this team keeps winning, especially by this amount (wishful thinking), but winning none the less, the crowd will come, it always does. Happened at the end of last year.
How about "The Swamp People"? I think it would be great! It would also go great with Cajun Field. We could also use Troy Landry's line on T-Shirts. "Aww, (opponent that night) can't shoot!"
