    Default ESPN disrespecting once again

    They took out our preferred logo. http://m.espn.go.com/ncf/clubhouse?teamId=309
    At least give us the logo with Louisiana in it.

    Pretty sure that was changed a while back.

    ESPN/SEC Network referring to us as Lafayette is disrespectful.

    Wow. Lafayette? They gave ULM enough respect to at least use UL. Why troll us out of everybody else?

    That.

    And besides, they have the Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns logo on their team page for us?? Not sure why we're going to be this insensitive about it. How about we, along with our athletes, do the best we can to promote our program and make the school look good. Our SID person with his "ESPN-Bristol" little press release used enough immaturity for the next three seasons.

    ESPN-Bristol was very Rush Limbaughish.

    LOL. If anyone in our administration/marketing department had even an ounce of the promotion and marketing abilities of Limbaugh, this whole name and abbreviation thing might not still be such a cluster this many years later.

    I deal with this with work all the time. Fix yourself before you _____ about others. The disprespectful thing is what we watched on the field Saturday. After that showing, we have no right to complain about anything until we prove ourselves. Can we do it? Absolutely. Don't talk until we beat the 10 count from that haymaker last week, though.

    Pretty much the way I see it at this point.

    I agree with the suck it hoax part.... but the arrogance of we will be bowling and have a better record is what we got to get past... We have done NOTHING , REPEAT NOTHING to crow about. We just might be the 5th best team in the state behind lswho, laturd, sela or HOAX, and who knows, Mcleast? And before anyone jumps on me just look at this years results before you put on vermilion colored glasses and say everything is perfect

    We are 1-1 with 10 games left. You are basing all this on one game. I get it, we laid an egg Saturday and are not where we thought we were but we are NOT the 5th best team in the state and we WILL be bowling. Don't jump off the cliff after one game and please don't give me this crap about ULM, SELA and McNeese being a better team then us because they are not. We have plenty of time to get our ____ together.

    Monroe beat an ACC team two weeks ago. McNeese came within a TD on the road at Nebraska. Sounds like some games need to be won before we start saying those two teams are not better than us. Hopefully something is shown the next two weeks too renew faith.

    I am not saying those two schools are not playing well right now but I am not ready to anoint them anything until the end of the season. I am a firm believer in that it's not where you start it is where you finish. Both of these schools seem to do well early in the season and play pretty well against bigger competetion and then dwindle down towards the end of the season. Since Hud has been here we have never played well early in the season but seem to kick it up a notch towards the end and win bowl games while ULM is sitting at home and Mcneese is losing in a first round playoff game. We have a good team and I still have confidence that we will get our ____ together and still have a really good season.

Not up and down with sexy wins and baffling losses. They always say the tortoise beats the hare. The slow steady plodding pace will always beat the sprinting pace.
    And I expect that from clueless people around the state who the only time they worry about a ULM or McNeese is when they upset someone like that, but it baffles me that some people on this board think that way as well.

    I am not delusional, I know we are not playing great football right now but we have ten games left and wouldn't trade our "tortoise" status for a win over an SEC school and then going 4-8...I know we will have to get some signiture wins and we will but we are building something here that no other school in the state is building and that is way more important than almost beating Nebraska or beating Wake Forest in my opinion. We need to stay focused on that for this athletic programs vision.

    I'll put it this way..

    This Cajun team wouldn't need last second drives to beat either Wake or Idaho.

    I don't see us playing Nebraska nearly as close but it was evident that they didnt take the FCS schools seriously until the second half.

    Not only that, schools like mcneese and app state are capable of these kinds of game because they are used to winning. Winning year in and year out does wonders for players phsyc and confidence. They didn't go to Lincoln to just collect a check and go home, they went to win...something the lower level FBS teams lack. I think thats a main reason why they win or compete when they play FBS schools. It doesnt mean they are better than those teams or us. They can't win the southland conference and can't get out of the first round of the playoffs.

    Like I said before, let's not judge schools until the season is over, the we can all panick
