Hud is not throwing away this season. Smith getting fired shows that. I just wish he would've done it after the end of last season
Finally a couple of guys who agree with me! Sheesh. The negativity was so strong. I was expecting a different reaction. Guess people really liked Melvin?
Let's turn this season around and start by pounding McNeese this Saturday. We have four teams on the schedule that are beatable before we get App St at home. We can correct our problems and improve drastically by then.
Don't know how many have ever been on staffs
things get really crazy at times from yelling blow outs to punches etc---Been on about half a dozen in HS and college and tell you at times it is not a fun thing, but that is what happens when the people who do it are nuts---It is also why so many exes from the profession do so well in other lines of employment---you have guys with an incredible work ethic with huge egos, and they all want to do it their way---and that presents itself with options by the head dude as to what he thinks will be the best remedy to the situation--and in this case it was termination of the DC---Sure hope it works out!!!
Todd Berry as our new defensive coord.
Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns head coach Mark Hudspeth announced Sunday afternoon that defensive coordinator Melvin Smith has been relieved of his duties effective immediately. Hudspeth added that linebackers coach Mike Lucas will serve as defensive coordinator for the remainder of the season.

Yeah Boom. I appreciate the insight. No one really knows what happened. It could have been a big fight or it could have been Hud simply calling in Melvin to his office to tell him that unfortunately things weren't working out. Who knows. Hud comes off as a perfectionist with alot of passion. It's evident in the way he carries himself. I view that as a good thing. Some people don't though. Those people would call Hud a micromanager perhaps. I still believe in him and I'm just not ready to write him off at this point.
Here's to righting the ship!
