Cajun game plan: 1-Defense get turnovers, 2- Offense Do not turnover ball.
3- Fire Defensive coordinator because he did not do job. Try again next week.
Buckley tweeted that Melvin Smith coached the game on Saturday.
-And I just thought there that you were gonna stop putting words/comparisons on here that you attribute to me---Please where did I say or give the impression of a good performance from Saturday?-I did give credit to our punter and Nixon for their efforts, along with some defensive efforts---and yes I said I will wait for a staff critique after Tulane---Metaphorical efforts suck when they don't apply---find somebody else that it might apply to!!!
I came away impressed with Jennings. Much more accurate passer than I ever gave him credit for. I thought he was impressive especially considering he's only been here a month. I lobbied for Haack but he sure had a lousy day vs. Baylor. I think there will be much to be learned about our team this Saturday. I hoped for better but realistically didn't expect a much different result vs. Boise. As I recall McNeese was playing LSU pretty tough start of the season last year in the game that got rained away. Our team aren't going to shock the world but we haven't seen their ceiling yet by a long shot. A convincing win, with solid play, will mean something against McNeese. I'll be there in all my sunburned glory, will try for a Ragin Cajun lager again, hoping we get things righted. I don't see this as hopeless at all, but that was a shocking firing especially timing wise, and if things are going to unravel it's going to come. I don't want that to happen and definitely not this Saturday. We'll learn a lot sooner than later.
Did he seem "messed up", crazy, dejected or like a "lost goose"? This seems so extraordinarily odd to me. Our defense has been bad but if you retained your coordinator over the summer, I wouldn't think an opening loss to a quite good Boise team would get you canned. You usually have someone in mind as a replacement, but to start week 2? I don't think they would fire the guy before the game and let him coach so if he was dejected he must have on his own realized this is hopeless. It seems very odd to me and if it's that our defensive coordinator was so dejected and downtrodden he did a farewell UL staggering stroll through tailgating because he couldn't bear to endure a season here, we're in trouble.
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.
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?
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.
