That happens occasionally. Still, we kept them under 40% and you usually win when you do that. What has not been credited enough was the Cajuns FT shooting. After starting 1 for 5, they were nails the rest of the night. We shot one and ones four times last night and made three. That is fine for a shot with that much pressure. Good to see that occur after they struggled in that regard on the Arkansas trip. That needs to continue as we will have to score more to beat Georgia Southern. They scored 86 against Troy last night and have one of the league's best players in Tookie Brown.

    Metry you are right in that Hardy has been huge for us from the perimeter this year. Yet, not one person who criticized his signing (and there are a few) has admitted they don't know much about what goes into recruiting. I suspect I will wait a long time before that happens. A lot more goes into it at our level than how many stars a guy has and who else is recruiting someone. How a guy will fit into your system and how he fits your needs is a big part of it. I never expected Hardy to be the zone buster he is. I expected he would be solid defensively due to his speed and not turn the ball over much due to how his brother did at McNeese. I figured he would be more than a solid contributor by his second year. That is another part of recruiting that people don't think about much. How will a guy respond to coaching and how much he can progress with time. It's not all about being a difference maker in Year 1. If that happens, so much the better and that is the case with Hardy this year.

I am sure their fans are bemoaning that stat. We really struggled finishing inside tonight and ULM's defense had something to do with that. Once again PJ Hardy shows that Bob Marlin may know a little more about recruiting than some of the experts on this site as he busted their zone in the first half with three triples and hit one at a critical time in the second half. Yes, I will remind people of that the entire season. If you want to know why, go back and look at some of the posts when we signed him back in April. I am sure those folks may come out of hiding next time he has a bad game.
    I'm going to hope for over 6k; there were a few reasons we didn't have people there Saturday night but still a decent crowd. Rio does hurt our attendance some if only because some fans went to the ball.

    Next Saturday forecast high of 77 with a 50% chance of evening showers. That shouldn't discourage attendance.

    People have been wrong in saying that Marlin was a poor recruiter because he signed Hardy. He may have made some mistakes but signing Hardy was not one of them. Another guy said that we would definitely be the worst D1 team in Louisiana this year. This was after we had beat Panhandle State by 70. Major point of the thread was that we should not schedule weak teams like that which I agree with. Taking that to the conclusion we were the worst team in Louisiana was obviously wrong. I don't know how we will do at ULM or in the tournament of we play them there. However at this point we are undefeated vs teams in Louisiana. I don't know if we are the best team in the state as some propose. I do know we are not the worst. Boomer is right in that some folks are wrong by what they post here and I just gave you some examples. Of course since the team under achieved compared to expectations last season, the narrative had to be that everything the staff did was a poor decision. Reality is they make some good decisions and some not so good. I myself was very wrong in that an AD change would not occur as soon as it did. I had no inside knowledge in that regard and believed that it would not occur until the contract ended. We all are wrong at times.

    I recall someone saying that he was a poor recruit in their opinion and others saying signing him indicated we were trying to compete in the SLC. My point is none of us knows how these guys will turn out, either good or bad.

    I was wrong once Z. I told everybody how good I looked in a mesh thong. It is true that I look magnificent in a mesh thong... but I was wrong in posting it on here. I think quite a few marriages were challenged over it. And that just isn't right.

    So signing pj Hardy and having it work out makes Marlin a recruiting guru and totally over rides the other several misses over a 7 year period...you have been waiting 7 years to have ammo against the Marlin detractors, you are going overboard IMO just trying to tell people they were wrong. We are all Cajun fans, we are glad we are better than we thought, we like pj Hardy. All his misses and transfers are just part of today's game as you say...well so is hitting on a player every now and then.

    Mike may be right. There were some non complementary comments about Hardy only being recruited by us and SLC teams. I don't think that it went much more than a concern. It like so many things said in the past isn't worth the research. I think everyone is happy we got Mr. Hardy. Probably making the all freshman team and all conferences team.

    There were several non complementary comments about several players over 7 years that were right about being recruited by us and SLC..most transferred to schools lower than SLC...having PJ Hardy doesn't change all that. Nothing that Marlin has done in 7 years in coaching or recruiting pointed to this team...nothing. This team is the exception not the rule under Marlin.
