    Another nice article Luke. Is there a word limit for the .com Advocate as there would be in a printed edition? If not, are the printed editions shorter or the same always?

    The rest of the story
    THE Advocate

    Article talks about Shawn Long coming up big at the line in OT after missing some key ones in regulation. There is always more pressue in a one and one situation than on other free throws. Missing two one and one free throws does not bother me as much as his other mistake which was another technical foul. That young man is emotional but he needs to realize he is being selfish when he gets one of those. Call is bad, fine, refs are human too and make mistakes. Keep your mouth shut and go back and concentrate on the next play is what I hope he learns to do. The technical he got against ULM at home was a huge factor in that loss. That one came for mouthing off after he dunked on a ULM guy. Again, keep your mouth shut and do it again. Only time you should mouth off is after the game has been secured. Even then it is not wise as that only fires the opponent for the next time you meet them. On Saturday he played only three minutes in the first half due to the foul situation. He plays more and the team may have a bigger lead at half so as an OT may not be necessary. Bottom line he needs to grow up or he will never reach his potential.

    I enjoy reading quality work Boomer.

    If noone reads his stuff or "boycotts" this paper do you really think they will start calling us what we want?? No, they would probably just stop covering us.

    I agree with Boomer, while I enjoy reading "quality work" -and Luke does quality work- the papers hatred of UL oozes through.

    It uses three versions of the schools name but always attaches the "know your place" addendum.

    The result is they give the addendum three times the focus. Making the otherwise great stories empty and about some fictitious entity.

    Well if the subject is athletics -and it is- the designated department at UL does a fantastic job.

    When Luke starts writing academic reports you will have a point.

    ps A better point I meant.

    Well I didn't expose Luke, I did mention the paper.

    I said "I enjoy reading "quality work" -and Luke does quality work- the papers hatred of UL oozes through."

    I have never seen one negative word about Luke or his work---it is all about what he is evidently forced to do---I choose not to support him because of his company and I think that Buckley is a fabulous writer---Also it is great to be called by your preferred name!!!

    ---Why the tiger with the Adver? Why the Fraud remark?? Surely they don't push LSU like the MA

    And if you don't think that Buckley is a gifted writer you haven't read his work or you just don't appreciate---Now where does all this hate for the Daily Advertiser come from? What is it based on???
