Great bowl season so far by the Sun Belt Conference. Through five bowl games, we're 4-1.
Marlin, I love this years team, but it's the only one since year one that I felt has been acceptable. He schedules like a high school coach. This year is the penultimate step for next, which by all accounts is suppose to be his best team. IMHO any basketball coach we hire should win 75% of his games. We ARE a basketball school. Always have been. It's time for us to perform like it. Especially after the debacle of Robert Lee.
Finally, Mark Hudspeth. I would have fired him after NCAA sanctions. No one could have kick started this university like he has! No one! I will be forever grateful for 4 straight Nola Bowl wins and massive facility improvements. But he is the face of the program that got slapped with sanctions. He went 4-8 before the sanctions even went into effect. Had a losing season this year. We have absolutely ZERO offensive firepower with the most electrifying playmaker I've ever see in a Cajun uniform. We should have a lock on the 2nd tier talent in Louisiana due to facilities alone but we don't. He insulted the fan base. The list of negatives is piling up and starting to outweigh the good. I want him to succeed and get a P5 job here. But he has to finish next season after bowl season with a winning record. I also don't know if he will ever get the fans back.
