    I know. I'm just trying to find anything to feel a bit better about the situation. Davis and the Cajuns protected the ball. That was positive. We'll never know if a key turnover would have done us in, but Jennings had a tendency to find defensive backs with his passes.

    Oline played better against smaller Dline.
    Calais is fast. Davis can throw the deep ball.
    Trahan from AHS has a clue. Will Hall isn't scared to open the playbook. Raheem Malone could be Harry Peoples.

    Outside of that, we know nothing.

    Understood MAT, but still, it's possible SLfreakinU will turn out to be a pretty good squad this year.

    While I wanted to see us blow them out as much as anyone, I'm not ready to hit the panic button, especially considering the last couple of year's performance on offense. Again, I was most concerned about our ability to score, against anyone, and at least there's some real signs of life there.

    Opening weekend and teams such as Illinois, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, ECU, Baylor, Nebraska, etc are all saying, WTF, today. It happens every year.

    Now, if the rub is really just a continuation of the discussion of our coaching woes, then that's a horse of a different color.

    I would love to be able to come on here @RP and praise the team for all kinds of things, because this is the only college team I care about and I want to have a nationally competitive football program. It's tough, and I see the effort by the players, I think they are trying. I blame it all on the coaches, specifically Hud. This team does not look talented, which is the result of recruiting. I know there are a few exceptions, but you can't field a winning football team with 5 talented players. Also, I'm not impressed with the scheme of either the offense or defense.

    Thing is much of what we saw on defense and special teams is players not playing their assignments. That falls on coaching.

    For every Howard and Liberty there are 30 other games like VMI, Jackson St, CCSU, Fordham... I can go on and on. We are the KINGS of "yea but" around here. The team was not ready to play. When you can actually see players lack desire to make a tackle on a kid half their size in a home opener, that's a major warning sign.

    My comments are not projecting forward at all. I'm specifically talking about what we saw last night. 2 of the 3 phases were horrendous. HORRENDOUS. Our defense was lost. Even worse, completely and thuroughly manhandled by a team that is not even in the division of football that we are a member of. THAT IS UNACCPETABLE. Period, end of conversation.

    Meanwhile, our peers (by whom we should be judging ourselves) went out and competed with PAC12, MWC, Big 12, AAC, and SEC. The majority of them didnt embarrass themselves, rather, they competed.

    And here we are making excuses for why SLU is "might turn out to be a good team".

    Howard beat UNLV too.

    I know what today would have felt like if we lost. It would have made for a very depressing Labor Day. The game was tough to watch, but I'm really, really pumped that we won.

    I know it's early and it's not saying much but in my opinion, we are a LITTLE better than we were last year.

    Good point....several Sunbelt team competed with SEC teams yesterday for 2-3 quarters. Has it been almost five years (Florida) since a Hud coached team was not out of the game when playing a P5 team?

    If our staff would of had Davis run more clock down before the snap on 2nd and 3rd down up by 7 and under 5 minutes the end of the game, ran instead of thrown on third and let the ball roll dead inside the 10 instead of rush and down it at the 5, you would had been in the parking lot. There is a good 30-40 seconds of clock we gave SLU.

    Poor clock management.

    Yes, couldn't believe they threw the ball on third down. Pretty upsetting that when it counts this Coaching staff is not confident enough in o-line to gain 4 yards against FCS d-line.

    As I respect you opinion I will say this there are only 4 sunbelt teams that won and we are one of them. So do you respect a team that lost last night more than a team that won. it doesn't matter how you win or by how many points as long as you beat the teams you are suppose to beat and we did that. Lets see what happens at Tulsa then we will have factual data to judge this team on.

    This was bad, bad football. WE won. To try to find anything positive other than that is risible.

    WTF has happened here?

    Yes, I respect a Sunbelt team who competed with a P5 squad yesterday more than The Cajuns today. Next week those teams will get their cupcake game and be playing their backups in third quarter, as they should be.

    Next TWO weeks Cajuns will be completely out classed same as we have seen last four years when Cajuns play a P5 team (and 90% of out of conference G5 games).

    Like I said, I'm not writing the story of the year based on last night.

    But comparing last nights win to anything (other than awful Geo St) is being naive. A 6 point loss to Nebraska is miles ahead of what we 'accomplished' last night. We were a bad decision by the QB on a two point attempt away from losing to SLU. I don't get the "yea but" folks..

    Even if we hadn't made the 4 yards we'd have still eaten a lot more clock and probably forced them to use a timeout.

    Sorry. That just isn't true. We can postpone judgement of our team until the cows come home. But to eek out a win over an FCS program... at home... isn't more impressive than holding your own against a P5. It isn't even close.

    I hope our players and coaches aren't content with that W and think they're going to play like that against Tulsa and aTm... and not bring loads of shame to themselves, their families, the fans and our school. The offense was excellent against SLU. The defense sucked a vacuum that would drain an ocean. Special Teams coverage was "Horrible Teams" coverage.

    Who knows what will happen from here on out... but that defense was TERRIBLE. And I think our coaches need to own that. If they don't, and we are that untalented, we're going to get burned 1000 times this season. I watched to see if SLU was holding and playing dirty. They were not. Our defense and special teams over pursued and played right in to some vastly more ntelligent schemes put on us by SLU's coaching staff. Thank goodness we've, once again, got some great skill players to bale Hud's coaching staff out. They barely did it. But they did it.

    I also didn't appreciate whoever ripped my SLU flag from my back window after the game. I came to Lafayette to watch a good game, spend the night and spend Some money at some local restaurants which I did.

    Good luck to ya'll the rest of the season. I hope y'all win the Sunbelt!
    That's the thing, the except football thing is something. We've lost to yall in Baseball and Basketball and while it's sucked, it's not the kind of negative that losing to yall in football would be. Add on to that, that yall had never beaten a FBS opponent, that would be a black eye on our school. I don't even think yall are that bad of a team for your classification, but at our level of football, if we want to be a decent bowl team, losing to a team that I think will be middle of the road in the SLC would basically mean that we are in for a VERY long season.


    I do wish yall good luck the rest of the season, and I hope yall win the southland and make the playoffs.
