Please re read my post
I said that they had an advantage over the OTHER SCHOOLS that played them (NAVY) because of the 3 weeks of preparation time that other opponents didn't enjoy!!!---Dive, QB, pitch, don't let the 2s or the 5s get trapped---9s make the qb pitch and pursuit "down the line"---run support!!!
LaTech's bowl win over a ranked Navy team is another nice signature win that their program can add to its list. Hudspeth seems incapable of doing that at UL. In case you haven't been paying attention, that makes three bowl wins in a row for the the bad guys in Ruston. Tech has established themselves as the clear #2 program in the state right now, but that's not really saying a lot.
Entering the LTUR game Navy lost to: USF, Temple, Air Force, & Army. Yeah, that's a top 25 program! If their helmets said North Texas they MIGHT be in the top 50. #25 my ___!
And sadly for us, once you decline, you struggle even greater to acquire talent that aids in masking your deficiencies at teaching. Hud was warned when he edged out bad teams on route to bowl victories not to believe he or the program were all that good. He doesn't listen to critics. He even joined a few knot heads at UL in condemning critics. He likes the fat soft bubbly airhead fan. He and some UL derelicts believe the critical fan isn't the hot core of our football program. They're so wrong that it borders on criminal.
Soft supporters have never EVER helped a system in crisis get better. They enable a broken system to survive as long as it possibly can. They'll be there at the funeral, sobbing over the loss. But they'll never accept the fact that they actually killed the program. I am at the funeral as well. My eyes are not on the program coffin. My eyes are on the soft supporter. And I am not pleased.
These comments demonstrate that the AD hire is the critical one. This person needs to be able to tell when to support someone who has given you success in the past and when things have regressed and change is necessary.
