    My point was that Davis would have had more experience this year if we had not played Anthony Jennings last year.

Lets see what happens at Tulsa then we will have factual data to judge this team on.
    Let's be honest here. We won the game we didn't beat anyone. SLU opted to live or die on a single play. They could have almost certainly tied the game, and that outcome is definitely up in the air. I don't subscribe to play for the win on the road and tie at home. It all depends on how you're playing. We tried to tie Florida and we saw how that turned out.

    The OLine was terrible last year and while it looked better last night, we weren't really opening up big holes. As a matter of fact, both of our lines were kind of knocked around and manhandled much of the night. Because of those reasons, I saw why they went with the play call to pass on 3rd down. If we get it, game is kind of over at that point. The issue I had with it was that JD was actually struggling in the short passing game while he looked really good on the deep passes. I was more worried about passing based on that versus our line.

    WTF has happened here?

    We ran into a team with similar talent and somehow pulled it out. We will probably have another 5 or 6 games where we match up athletically. If we win those 5 to 6 additional games this staff will have done its job coaching these guys up.

    It is the offseason where UL is getting crushed. Hud and staff are basically recruiting a glorified 1AA program. The proof is in the few number of players who challenge for All-SBC awards or make it to the next level.

There is a good 30-40 seconds of clock we gave SLU.

    I mention this to my friend during that series. Davis snapped the ball at 21 and 19 seconds during that drive. That's 30+ seconds we gave on two plays. I think SLU had two time outs left. Let them use it.

    Poor clock management.

    Play call wasn't that bad. The QB just missed WIDE open guy in the endzone. Good rush on our part to make him have to make a quicker decision but he just missed his guy wide open.

    Junior year brother, he doesn't have a lot of time left to incubate this "growth" Having said that, I will actually say that I was more impressed with him than I thought I'd be. He struggled in the short passing game and missed easy throws but put the mid range and longer route passes on the money which is encouraging. He also seemed to make the right decision quite a bit more than I thought he would which was a major concern of mine. We will get a better idea of which JD to expect this season next week. Tulsa will be a big step up in competition although their defense doesn't appear to be a juggernaut either so I'm anxious to see how he does.

    Entire defense looks slow and lost. I can't believe what I'm watching.
    I was more concerned with missed gap assignments by the linebackers. I thought they were terrible and unfortunately, I don't think they are talented enough to get a whole lot better. The DL had its moments and they fought hard. What gets me is that we are playing a power running team with a 3-2-6 lineup as well as our 4-2-5 sets. Why not put an extra linebacker in there to help with the run?

    Poor band only played for about 10 minutes of the game towards the end of the game.
    I heard the same noise! Trying to listen to radio broadcast is painful. The volume is cranked up too high. Jay says they like when they "can open the windows" and let the listeners hear the roar of the crowd. I don't want to hear the PA system over the radio! (It is way too loud in the stadium!)
    All I want is to be able to hear the play-by-play. Increasing the volume just distorts the sound. Then, on top of that, Jay has to yell into the microphone. Just turn down the decibels a few notches. I am not saying you do not have to get excited. Just lower the noise level so we can hear what he is saying.

    UL has a lot of bright spots and work spots.
    Not to mention WEAK spots!

    PAT's are untimed plays.

    Didn't you actually watch Tulsa vs Oklahoma State?

    I did. What I saw out of Tulsa scared me to death. Their offensive scheme and personnel are built to attack every one of the defensive weaknesses we showed last night.

    Defensively they gave up 59 points; but their scheme was sound and their players were in position to make plays. They were just out athleted by a QB who has a legitimate shot at the Heisman and the best corps of wide receivers in the nation.

    OK State is no defensive juggernaut. We've put up more points on them in the past when they had better teams. I saw a QB very similar to JD. Raw but talented. He made some poor decisions and he had quite a time getting adjusted early. Outside of that, what did I say that you are arguing about? I don't think we have a shot in hell. I was just remarking about his actual development thus far and I think that game will show us more of what he's actually accomplished.

    They had like 300 rushing. I'd have kicked the PAT, but if you going to go for it, dance with who brung you. They had boucoup drops etc. No way I leave that game to the passing attack when I'm running on the other team at will.

    Edit: rewatched. Fair enough, dude was wide open.

    Yes! A friend of mine and I were wondering the same thing! Where was the clock mgmt.?! It was like they were in a hurry-up offense! They should have been using every bit of the 25 seconds before they snapped the ball. That's on the coaches!

    A defense we seek. This one has sprung a leak. I fear we have seen HUD's peak. I'm scared of next week.

    BTW: I broke down and bought an Amazon Fire streaming media thingy, mainly for espn3, and movies. I'm in the process of watching the replay of the game, as painful as that is, but have to say production-wise it is pretty good: extremely clear and sharp pic, fairly good commentary, calling us by our correct name, etc. They also dud a good pre-game clip showing the BBQ TG's, Cajun dancing, great shots of the Tigue and Cajun walk. And at least for now when they show close ups of us after scores, etc., it is in the middle of the red zone.....when it was packed. Kind of putting us in the best light possible.
    Was wondering if anyone else watched it via espn3.......
    Oh, and I'm watching Calais' second ko return, the one for the 100 yards.

    I remain positive because I know that a lot of progress can happen between the first live contact and the second, and I liked some of the individual play. Now, hang on to your seats because I might be in the MAT camp.

    This got real simple for me while I squirmed in my otherwise comfy chair-and-a-half watching this one. It has been nearly four decades since UL was in the SLC, Gulf South, or whatever. In fact, we allegedly compete in an entirely different league, have significantly better resources, and a million-dollar coach. At this point, I think it is reasonable that I should be able to relax when we play a team from the SLC. Instead, I have to sweat a 2 PAT for the win.

    Reminding myself that UL did win the game (because it doesn't feel like it), I submit this:

    You cannot lose to the FCS schools of our four-decades-ago past AND make a million dollars. That does not compute. I require more return on my investment. That's my benchmark. I accept that there will be good years and bad; but through it all, what almost happened tonight simply cannot happen.

    Agreed, and I think most of us are in "the MAT camp" as it relates to coaching. I don't know how many of our players actually take the time to read what we arm chair quaterbacks have to say, but I sometimes worry that speaking too harshly about individual performances may be counterproductive.

    In the end, whether it's quality of talent, conditioning, gameplan, or execution, it's all on the coaches. We've got the facilities, we've got a great city with friendly people and some of the best food in the world. There's no reason we shouldn't be in the mix every year for the championship of whatever conference in which we compete.
