    In all seriousness if that's that, and this gentleman was not impaired, not a morning person, up all night or just not happy living in Acadiana area, there will be no need for speculation. If that is the case this will all unravel sooner than later at a colossal rate. This is bizarre, the firing paired with the unusual siting. There's got to be much more to this story or we are in real trouble.

    Just don't see how you gonna avoid a split locker room on this one. Bad chemistry is about to happen all over again.

    Could it be possible that he was just confused about how to get to the APC given the construction and detours messing up the original route?

    Ever notice how some schools have problems with this and others don't?

    If you never cater to the foolishness in the first place, you never invite racial tensions.

    Hire, sign, and play the best people you can and never look back.

    Some schools do this. Some schools play politics.

    Guess what we do.

    Scott farmer told Hud to fire someone so everyone would stop talking about him on RP.

    Is Lucas a stop gap emergency appointment only? Or can he do something here? Was this decision made easier knowing Lucas could do a better job?

    Was hoping somebody knew him or had some concrete insight. Trying to weigh how ominous this move may or may not be.

    It was obviously a chess move by a grand master. Be patient. We're sneaking up on the queen. Be patient. Right now we actually have more of their checkers than they have of ours. Be patient.

    Also curious if anyone tailgating and seeing an out of sorts Melvin Smith ambling by said hello, head nod, thumbs up or anything. Just curious looks or what? It's not like y'all thought it was me moseying by, but were y'all stand-offish, dumbfounded, or preoccupied? Wish I had seen it. Surely someone here can tell the full story with full detail.

    I get the sarcasm. I'm not quite ready to concede we're about to see a house of cards tumble. I guess I'm grasping for straws here. This next game is going to matter a lot more than it ought to.

    Think the full story has been told as far as to what was done. The question is why? Bicky would venture to say 90% of tailgaters that saw him prob didn't know who he is. Scott O and bickwizzard are obviously above average fans so they were probably some of the only people to recognize him.

    Well then I think he probably has a goofy air about him that MAT would describe as a lost aloof goose, was probably aware their was an unyielding expectation of improvement even if in defeat to a tough opponent, might of gone to "take it all in even one first time" in case things didn't unfold well. Defense showed no improvement and Coach Hud had to act. Hope Lucas is up to the task. Maybe this is the first step in turning things around. We need to beat McNeese (and beyond) and I hope the yahoos on that other thread don't represent their true fan base.I'm all for a bit of trash talk but hate to us get crude even if it's in response to them.

    How long before specific RaginPagin posters start getting quoted in the paper?
