    His biggest failure was not reading Ragin Pagin before commenting. It's where all factual information originates.

    Maybe I didn't calculate correctly, but I come out with us averaging 76.39 points per game in conference (with two overtime games totally 19 pts. - which tacks on about a point/game). Still, a lot of points, right? Well, we win two more games with that extra 3+ points/game.

    i gave doucheDave plenty of chances. He seems to get off in taking shots at UL whenever he can.

Coach Murphy made a good point however in that the mid range shot is difficult to obtain at times when the defense is a soft man to man or zone. Turnover often results in those situations. I found the debate interesting. I do note coaches do get defensive when people they do not believe know as much about the game as they do try to give them advice. It is like me taking advice from some actor on how the energy industry works. That being said, I do not know how much basketball knowledge Dave Schultz has. He may have played the game competitively and therefore speaks with credibility. I also listen to them in the morning more frequently these days as they do focus on the Cajuns more than in the past. However you guys should know that last Friday morning he was going on about Jay Wright being in a slump as he only played a few minutes at Troy. I had to call and tell them that Jay suffered an injury which is why he did not play much. He was developing his commentary strictly from the box score. I found that situation indicative of a lack of preparation. He obviously had not listened to the game or read details about the game. If he had, he would have known about the injury. At least read the ragincajuns.com story before preparing your remarks. Injury report was in there. Speculating on Jay's situation without knowing the whole story was unfair to Jay.
    I would not attempt to discuss X's/O's with Coach Murphy, or any other coach for that matter. After reading his comments to you though, it seems that the great majority of the offense we have to look forward to under this staff will consist of 3 point shots or layups. I wonder how it was that coaches/teams were able to obtain midrange shots before the 3 point shot came into play.

    I hate the 3 point shot.

    Appreciate the inside info/analysis you provide throughout the season.

    I'm not his agent, so you are not hurting my feelings. His style and persona are a tough sell in this market, but the only reference most on this board have when it comes to talk radio has been the only game in town for years. The line of questioning is not what you normally hear.

    I have too. I do appreciate his attempt to ask questions some would like answered. I think the laughter blurred the line for me. I've tried a few time to listen to him again without reason to, and I feel he is at the right station for his persona...a Alice Shoe station. Comes off like tigerdroppings. I agree, when I've listen, he's basically going thru a box score on Cajun games. I think he just goes for the food...lol.

    But then again, we're talking about someone who had a great gig at a world class golf club and landed at start up job at a radio station in Carencro, Louisiana.

    I don't like his style, but I am glad we have a radio journalist in this market who will ask the tough questions.

    I like the tough questions, but he doesn't exactly get a 10 for his approach.

    i just like that fact that he gets relevant guests on his show. its an lsu station, but they are talking cajuns every day on the way in to work. i dont think stevie has ever had an interview or a guest on his show, and i just cant listen to his monologue. id rather listen to interviews that are relevant to what is going on around sports.

    Do you think that Coach Murphey really believes that the Cajuns will magically get red hot from behind the arc for the rest of the season?

    He stated that if the Cajuns can get hot from behind the arc they can make a run....that applies to every single team in the country guy!

    NOTHING from this season indicates that the Cajuns will suddenly get hot from 3 point land.
    He didn't necessarily predict they would get "hot". His point was valid as he mentioned that they needed to continue shooting the 3 ball. Shooting well from the perimeter opens up the inside and stretches a defense. All he said was that he believed they had shooters that can make the shots but they have to start making them and I agree. Shepherd, Register, Wronkowski and even Jay Wright can hit the three ball.

    Schultz lost me when he suggested Register attacking the zone at the high post and shooting bank shots from mid range. I don't have a problem shooting the 3 ball as we have to shoot it in order to open up the defense and we are also a decent offensive rebounding club so if you are hitting the glass, I don't mind it as long as it is a good shot. I don't really care where the shot comes from if it is a good shot. What I've had a problem with is that getting good shots usually comes from ball and player movement to briefly shift defenses and create seams which we don't seem to do very well.

    Many of the best teams in the country take them. However, to win in today's game, you have to be able to hit the 3 at least a little bit.

    A mid range shot is not always an on the move shot but I understand what you are talking about. The thing is, being on the move is not always bad as pulling up for a jumper allows you to get into a rhythm for the shot. While I did not play on the collegiate level, I always enjoyed shooting off the dribble and pulling up for a jump shot as I felt more in rhythm with the shot and could get more lift on my shot.

    One thing I didn't hear being talked about was defense. We obviously don't play defense. We may score a lot of points, but we give up even more. It does us no good to score 200 points if we give up 201.

    I think defense has been good enough to win, at least lately. Our offense is the elephant in the room and I'm not talking only about perimeter shooting. People are putting too much emphasis on the bad 3 point shooting but there have been a couple of games recently where our 3pt percentage was better than our overall FG percentage and that's terrible. In the Arlington game, we had 19 offensive rebounds but only 7 second chance points. That's a lot of misses close to the basket. You won't win many games shooting 29% from the field.

    Reference a former player for the Cajuns. Tony Moore. Man had a great first step. Would beat players off the dribble and hit a 10 foot jumper. Very little of that left in college basketball.

    I always get the feel that we're playing a "street ball" offense. Watch other teams. They're running plays. Setting off ball screens. Getting men into good position. We just pass the ball around the top of the key most of the time.

    schultz was right in the fact that our offense works as in we get open looks, we just havent been able to knock them down consistently. for the most part, the 3's that we are missing are good looks that arent contested.
