    I want a successful program that plays a meaningful schedule and garners some measure of respect from both its own fans and from others who are less biased. I want a program that is always in the conversation about who is going to win whatever conference we are in; and which is considered as a dangerous matchup in the NCAA or NIT when we make it. We used to have that.

    You are perfectly welcome to both expect less and to accept less.
    And neither made the NCAA tournament so you welcome to keep _____ing about something that is not going to change. You are also welcome to keep blaming coach when our baseball coaches and our new AD says scheduling is a problem. But some how when other teams talk about it, they are still better than us and it is our coaches fault. You keep bringing up FCS schools but want to compare them to us, you keep bringing up non football playing schools and comparing them to us.

    It is amazes me you are not a DI coach in baseball, basketball, football and track because you have the answers. I could probably throw softball in their too.

    Also if you want to compare Lafayette to Ruston and why they out draw us, because there is nothing else to do in that ____hole. Unless you want to ____ a goat or date your sister. I am sure I lived there not being a tech at ruston fan, I might go to the game. Probably not,because I hate those bastards.

    Actually, they averaged about 2942 for home attendance while the Cajuns averaged 3655.

    I don't think it's just better OOC schedules but I think they have a smaller conference footprint with better historical rivalries. Additionally, basketball has always been bigger in the northern states, even when we were having consistently good seasons.

    You must take some time to breathe between post defending Marlin and getting your head out of his ___. Bobby Big Fish is a mediocre coach, in a mediocre league, with mediocre talent. We won't win the regular season title with him, ever.

    It's ok though, we won 20 games with a ____ poor schedule. We were ready to play in a ____ poor pay to play tournament. But keep defending him. Seems to suit you well Mel.

    So I was wondering when you would come defend your dad with some more lies. Nothing you say on here is creditable to me after your lies about donors to the baseball stadium last spring. But keep up the good work on saying something enough thinking people would believe it.

    Between you and your reach around buddies, that love tech, it is like wrestling a pig in the mud, sooner or later you realize the pig loves the mud. So you 3 can waddle in your mud and ____, because that is where you belong.

    So I missed on the total donation withheld? It was $250k. Scott Farmer whiffed on securing the money and had to get a bridge loan and lied about it. It was delayed by over 8 weeks. Yep a bunch of lies.

    Did that cost him his job? Along with a multitude of other missteps as AD, you bet your ugly ___ it did.

    As far as Bobby Big Fish, he has had 3 total roster makeovers and still hasn't won the conference. Had one good run in the Sun Belt Tourny with a lottery pick and another NBA player. His total record here including non D1 games is 128-104 with ZERO regular season titles and 1 conference tourny title over 7 years.

    Your golfing buddy ain't a good coach bro.

    So going from 2 million 250k is no big deal, so the donor pulled his gift because RCAF wasn't separated from UL Foundation? Whatever you have more lies in you than anyone else on the board. You want more how about your stupid thread about "baseball rumor". I am sure you would love going back to the days of Jesse Evans and players not making grades and getting arrested.

    Oh by the way, how is that freedom of information search coming with Farmer applying for the ULM job. Or maybe you want to spill the beans on what Hud was going to get fired or the players leaving the football program. I know all of what happened but I am not the one that came on here claiming everyone would no soon enough.

    I am done responding to your lies and stupid post, you can go waddle in your ____ hole some more and make some mud pies while worshiping la tech@ruston. Oh I ain't your bro, I have better taste than hanging out with you.

    I give 2 ____s about La Tech. Other than they own us in football. Their record in basketball blows ours out of the water over the last 7 years.

    I get it, you do t want to ruffle feathers since that's your boys. But at least I can be objective. Farmer was terrible, never once did I say it wouldn't be built. Marlin is mediocre his record speaks for itself.

    Throw insults all you want. You defend Marlin, Farmer and Hudspeth all you want. One of those three has been canned. The other will be lucky to win 5 games.

    Keep deflecting. View our program through your vermilion colored glasses. Defending mediocre to poor performances. I did state what Hudspeth did in a different thread.

    All the while Broadhead is succeeding, Robe is succeeding and Lotief is succeeding.

    I see four areas of coaching where they can be good or not.

    a) Spotting talent.

    b) Developing talent.

    c) X & O's

    d) Keeping the roux from burning.

    Like any good coach Marlin has his strengths and weaknesses.

    The X factor is that in any conference there are 2 handfuls of teams that can strike lightning in any given year. By any logic this would limit your championship years.

    By the same token at some point you can reasonably expect it to be your year.

    Broadhead went 20-11 this year. Is that good, great or mediocre?

    11 times since 2000 the Sunbelt was won by either WKU or UL.

    He also won the CBI and made it to the Sun Belt championship. All the while coaching a program that has had less than 15 winning seasons in its history.

    Comparing Gary to Marlin is not fair to either. Gary is building and exceeding expectations. Marlin is mediocre.

    Using your dad's standards how many wins against top 100 teams. They have worse scheduling than the men's, but we know your boy is Brad.

    I have never defend Hud or Farmer, you were the one saying everything would come out. Well tells please.

    I don't care what the RPI says. He doesn't win enough plain and simple.

    You know what Hudspeth did. The university deemed it not worthy to persue. Likely because the parents/player didn't push the issue. I will not put said player on blast here. But Hudspeth put his hands on a player. It was handled internally and that's that.

    I for one really never followed the women that much. Last two years we've gone early to support them at games in the dome. They are definitely a work in progress. Hot and cold streaks that if the men did would be flash points on RP. Honestly liked watching Nekia Jones play. Loves it when she matches up and goes 1v1 on opponent's point guard. Usually the opposition underestimates her speed. Her stamina improved over the season. If she pulls off a GREAT summer workout program, she could be a dark horse POY material next season. Our RPI is 141. 3-4 on games over/under achieved according to RPI.

    Losses to and RPI:
    Notre Dame 2
    USM 102
    Houston 175
    LR twice 47
    UTA twice 91
    Texas State 168
    Ga So 248
    Costal 257
    Troy 106

    Wins:
    McNeese 280
    SEMS 267
    Xavier non D1
    SUNO non D1
    SLU 329
    Ruston 139
    stAte twice 317
    ULM three times331
    Ga St twice 260
    Ga So 248
    So Al 246
    Troy 106
    App 216
    Texas St twice 168
    LR 47

    SBC women programs dropped 2 non d1 games this season. Should never happen.

    When have I mentioned Brad on here? Brad would be a great asset to any college program once he decides to uproot his family and put in his dues. He won't go HS to UL and he knows that.

    But keep on man, I'm stating fact and you are hurling insults. Facts 128-104 with at least 14 of those wins coming from NON-D1 teams. Nothing can change that record. He's had 3 roster turnovers so it is HIS program.

    128-104 ain't good enough IMO. If he were 170-62 you wouldn't hear squat from me.

    The women play a weak schedule ooc, and have had trouble competing against the better teams in the conference. They are making some progress in the latter. Their win over Little Rock in the tournament shows that.

    I would like to see better scheduling ooc, and Brodhead still has not found an effective rim protector or banger in the paint. ( think Van Dyke from UTA or Ramirez from Troy). He HAS recruited bigger guards lately, who are still athletic, and Jones is a sweet player who is a match up nightmare for our opponents. I am not sure about his recruiting class this year, but I do expect next year's team to be better than this year because of 3 quality Seniors in Fields, Jones and Swain, plus the freshmen from this year who played a lot.

    To answer your question, I would consider the year mediocre with regard to my expectations for the program in general, but good in terms of making progress towards meeting them. We have more players who can compete at this level than we did before, and we beat a really good team (Little Rock) when it mattered. Those are good things.

    I expect us to be considerably better next year, especially if he can find a quality big to help Fields inside, and if the Texas twins are as good as advertised.
