    WRONG! The beat down that LaTech put on us in 2014 was start of the slide. 1st time I saw Hud just totally out coached, unfortunately since then it has happened often.

    When has HUD ever out-coached anyone? Seriously.

    He outcoached Florida's coach ... until he didn't.

    In hindsight his change of pace (crawl) offense at the end of that game was a sign of things to come, but no one spotted the long term implications because that loss was followed up with 4 or 5 straight wins.

    Technically, Hud's first time as our head coach getting taken to the woodshed was against Western Kentucky in 2011. Taggart always had good teams there. And later that year against Arkansas State when Hugh Freeze handed him another decisive loss. I'm not going to count the season opener at Oklahoma State cause they were way more talented than us, nor am I going to blame Arizona, cause those refs were crooked as ____.

    So in 2011 only two coaches really gave it to Hud. Both guys went on to better jobs. So if you ask me, in 2011 Hud did a pretty darn good coaching job.

    2012, we saw North Texas take advantage of Hud's inability to adjust once Harry Peoples hurt his shoulder. We also saw North Texas run the exact same play against us over, and over, and over, and over again. To me...this was the beginning of the slide. Failure to adjust after one goddamn player gets injured, and not adjusting the defense...at all after watching them run the same play.

    It wasn't 2014, it was 2012.

    If you read the South Alabama message board after our win everyone of their fans thought HUD did. In fact everytime someone loses a conference game the number 1 reason given by fans is that he was outcoached. Except when a coach loses in his first year. They usually get a pass because the previous coach was a bum and he has to be given time to put in his system (Tulane is in this phase of fan opinion).

    Yea, I totally forgot that midweek beat down by Ark State. That was rough.

    I think Hud is a good stepping stone from Bustle like Bustle was a stepping stone from the one that shall not be named. Hud has set the stage for a good hire (just think 15 years ago Mcsuck coaches would not come here) ... Hopefully, the next coach can win the big game

    Exactly. It's the natural progression of things. Bustle brought us from the grave to respectable, HUD gave us some momentum and now, soon, a competent Atheltic office would understand that and take the next step up the evolutionary ladder.

    But thats the problem. We don't and more than likely never have a competent athletic department. Our president likes what our AD was done and that speaks volumes as to both of their merits. Realistically how much longer will T-Joe be on the job?

    Savoie isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Academic side loves him. And that's fine, the guy is very good at running a university. The problem is, he's clueless on how to run an Atheltic department and he's employing a numbskull to do so.

    False: everyone knows the opening of the APC started the slide.

    The bowl games against SDSU and ECU are about the only ones that I can really think of.

    I'm assuming you mean Bustle right?

    I would throw Nevada in there too. I did not think we were going to win that game.

    Nevada was a well played game. I'll say it was his best effort of all time. Maybe the opponent was just off that day.

    I like the new associate AD .. she listens to Alden a lot more than Farmer
