    I don't see the big lost of Gipson we were his biggest offer. So did we pull his offer was he going to qualify? I don't see McNeese stealing this kid from us. Anyone know the real scoop on this kid.

    What ever the issues with HUD that will come out after the signing day, according to T and others, must be known by other coaches and they are using it to negatively recruit against the Cajuns.
    So the other coaches know the issues and only a few know on RP?

    Be careful what you wish for. It is a down year for the state as a whole. That in itself explains why we are recruiting against FCS schools so much this year.

    They don't need details, just some saying there are omitted details is food for recruiting fodder.

    I am trying to look more positively at this class, especially the OL. In the past we have some huge but really overweight guys who were not as athletic as we would have liked. Many of these OL did not work out for us. This years OL group is a little different. These guys are leaner (Gardner 270, Rubio 250 and Vallot 295) and have intangibles that I feel are very important (Rubio is a powerlifter and Vallot is a wrestler). You might say we are recruiting whoever is left but maybe we have changed the way we are thinking about OL recruits. I am interested to see how these OL prospects develop and perform.

    I noticed Spencer Gardner not only played basketball and baseball in high school, but also made all-state 1st team in baseball and all-district in basketball.

    I think any "big guy" can play high school basketball because at that level your size gives you a huge advantage, but baseball takes a lot more timing and coordination. He may be one to watch in the next few years.

    This has to sting for you guys. I don't think Hud is a good recruiter, now that all of the former coach players are gone. He can't hide it anymore, his recruiting skills are coming to light and its not looking good for you guys. When you can't recruit a decent qb from La, Tx, or Miss then yea that is not a good sign. Throw in the fact that you lost to us and Tulane, that leaves you guys really competing for recruits with the lower level schools like a Mcneese or Nicholls state. At this point I think Grambling is out recruiting you guys now. They are loading up.

    Yes it really stings. We lost a few 2 star recruits and will fill them with other 2 star recruits. Recruiting is a funny game, very few people here were excited about the guys we brought in, but when they flip then it is a big deal.
    Anyone with a pair of eyes can see we have done very poorly in recruiting for several years. At the end of the day HUD being mean to a player or calling too may dive plays will not be his undoing. His inability to develop a QB and recruit south La will be.

    for most coaches a QB would be the #1 target, but HUD can't seem to make up his mind whether he wants a pocket passer or a dual threat

    I agree, the QB position is his downfall.

    Nothing like a new, fresh perspective from our friends to the north!

    Ya gotta give it to them. They had this figured out for a long time. You never go into a football season without a legit passing QB. "Dual threat" is not in their lexicon.

    Imagine what could have been with the running backs we've had come through here, Tyrell Fenroy, Alonzo Harris, and Elijah McGuire. We should have had P5 beating passing games to compliment those running backs.

    It's very possible that is the case, I don't know the answer other then there is another DE that they feel is a better prospect. We will find out Wednesday night.

    I'm not certain that is the entire reason, but your assumption that only a few know on RP is wrong. A number of people have decided not to discuss it on RP. We will see the final look of the 2017 class Wednesday night.
