    Wow. I hope you're right - in the most positive sense. Getting into FG range and/or scoring TDs avoids punting. But turnovers also reduce the need for punting. I hope you mean that our offense is going to be highly effective at moving into the red zone. I'm not sure where you derive the optimism that our offense (and defense) will be phenomenally effective, in every game, after game 1.

    No disrespect to SLU, however if we punt several times against the Lions, we will be punting a lot throughout the season. I think people are missing a key point here. We are bringing in a guy who can help us win games. The guy had great stats at Cincinnatti. Hopefully he can duplicate those here. Let's focus on the guys on the team now.

    Sticking with special teams, Sterling Miller was a deep snapper that got suspended right after the Trump video last year and doesn't appear on this years roster. He was not visible in the video so when you put 1 and 1 together, you come up with he may have been on the other side of the cell phone camera. Is he gonna be reinstated or will he be the only participant not allowed back on the team?

    What is his grad study field? Think that might have something to do with it?

    That's a shame shouldn't he have the same punishment as the rest. It appears to me there may be some double standards in discipline on this team according to your talent level and contributions.

    What he did was way worse if in fact he posted the video. The other guys were singing a song. No big deal in my mind. That dude broke locker room code and started this whole sh storm.
    In locker rooms all Over the country, people are listening to and singing songs that demean women and glorify drug abuse, etc. Nobody is dumb enough to video it and post it to the web so it isn't an issue.

    If "dumb" gets you more punishment, then we need to exact some serious punishment to our entire football program (including the head coach). "Team, we have a strict code of conduct in this program. We do not video our acts of vulgarity and dumbassishness. If you are caught with video or audio recordings of our staff or members of the team doing things that bring dishonor to our university, you, the recorder, will be crucified. That's our 'red line' on codes of conduct. Remember, if no one records it, does the tree really fall in the woods?".

    The song or it's substance may have insulted a few major Trump supporters, but it wasn't relevant to most. It was simply a example of a divided locker room and symptomatic of what was taking place in the program. If the locker room isn't divided and other incidents hadn't taken place, perhaps there would never had been a video? Knowing this kid and his family as UL supporters, the fish rots at the head. Had the man running this program addressed some of those incidents and handled them with impartiality, I don't believe any video would have been placed on YouTube.

    I'm not a big fan of secret locker room videos, but when the leader of the program doesn't address discipline concerns until incidents become public, the blame begins with him.

    He's got a new locker room with different leaders, let's see what happens this season. Hopefully they will find a way to stick together, even through the rough patches.

    From what I heard he didn't post it anywhere just sent to his father to show him the freak show he lives in every day...... Which is also why Gabe F. is no longer on the team. It was not a good environment for middle class white kids. (not trying to offend anyone that is just the facts) If you don't believe me just ask one of them.

    Agree. But unfortunately these kids go to school and play football and don't work. Many have already sired off spring. Where I'm from when you impregnate someone you get married and go to work and support your family. You may stay in school and work your way through. I am amazed at the number of players we have with kids and no job? Who supports them? Tax payers? Baby momma? I know who is not. Good fathers? They are not starting out on the right foot.

    What an ignorant comment.

    What percentage of players actually have kids? Not very many. Your comment is the exception rather than the rule. And as for as the ones that do have kids, as long as they are still in college they are working towards a degree which will better their chances of them getting a good job when they get out.

    I expect nothing less from Bicky. I imagine Bicky sired a "youngin" with his 3rd cousin Ophelia from Bogalusa. He didn't much fancy her...but her daddy came to him with a shotgun and said "you been ruttin on my Ophelia, you gotta marry that girl, son." Bicky married Ophelia...and to this day supports them by trapping Nutria and trading pelts for food and packs of Red Man...for his wife. Bicky is a simple man, who simply supports his family...simply.

    No sir you are very naive. You are correct it is not the majority. I read a recent article that suggest the number of male student athletes with children is right at 30%. (The female athlete usually has to give sports up and take responsibility) I didn't say they should drop out of school. I know many people that got married in that situation, lived in married student housing and worked while in school to support their family. Football is a previldge not a right. A child is a huge responsibility and everyone should be held responsible for their own actions from day one, not year 4 after they've played ball and had others financially support their child. (I do realize my opinion does not go along with the societal flaws today of baby momma and baby daddy with no marital bond or relationship. I can not force society to do what is morally right.)
