    There is no such thing as overreacting when trying to secure success. Especially when it involves 4 straight bowl victories after a 40 year appearance drought.

    If anyone is guilty of anything it is our combined inability to foretell that money would make Hudspeth extremely conservative.
    ---Again the problem lies in the guys that were projected to come not playing on the field---Still waiting for Cajun T--to give us a list of names---Come on T, do it for discussion---BTW I finally am off Scout!!!

    We overpaid Hudspeth because he was winning with players that were recruited to UL by Bustle. That's something Bustle was never able to do, so we were all so euphoric that we overreacted.

    Since Hudspeth has had to start playing with his own recruits, he's losing. Today, Tulane and La Tech are both able to out recruit UL in Louisiana, even though this is Hudspethw's 6th year.

    Hold that rope..........soap-on-a-rope, that is, and whatever you do, DON'T DROP IT!

    That has been the blanket narrative (I'm guilty too) but at most it is diminishingly accurate.

    Since I helped spread the blanket, let me fine tune the Bustle player impact.

    I haven't run actual numbers so the percentages below are based on a range from full classes being redshirted to no players ever being redshirted.

    Bustle Players on Hudspeth's teams:

    Year 1: 80-75%
    Year 2: 60-50%
    Year 3: 40-25%
    Year 4: 20-0% (redshirts only)

    For the most part Hudspeth did win without Bustle players.

    It is ironic that he hasn't won since the number hit zero.

    if the consensus is coach a. is better at recruiting and coach b. better at motivating, is it not possible to have a system that incorporates two coaches? there are ten spots on the staff are there not?

    and if Hud is deficient in recruiting, one sentiment seems to be he is not winning the recruiting contest against other schools, or is it that he is a "good recruiter", i.e. gets who he wants, its just that he is a poor talent scout and wants the wrong players?

    UL Football Re: Coaches Salaries......

    Colin Cowherd had an interesting take of coach salaries. His view is the current coach salary even if higher doing more for the program than the last, and by how much. Saban for Example is bringing in hundreds of millions for Bama, and Shula did not get in that ball park. The Michigan coach the same. Hud really has overdone Bustle by a mile, even though he might be a ribbit, and not a turtle.

    A word of caution, never pay a guy more than you can afford to buy out at any point.
