    PAT's are untimed plays.

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.
    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.

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

    Poor clock management.
    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.

    I don't think that's the MAT camp. I think that's pretty much every cajun fans camp, especially those who have donated significant dollars over the recent years to help fill the requests of the coach to all chip in for the greater good.

    This may have been covered in another post, and it doesn't really make me feel any better, but at least we're not UNLV today.

    It's all about the return on investment. That doesn't include going to the wire with a middle-of-a-pack FCS Southland school.

    A loss is a loss no matter how you spin it we are 1-0 all those so call respectable losses are 0-1. We will be beaten by P5 schools and no matter if we lose by 1 or fifty it will be a loss there are no moral victory points in the W-L columns.

    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.
    so you would give credit to a winless team and hammer an undefeated team. People are so critical on here. Those young men played their butts off and found a way to win. No excuses here but look at the lack of experience we had on the field and they pulled it together, got the big stop when we needed it. I respect that more than losing to A&M on last second field goal if that were to happen because at the end of the year Hud's job wont be saved on moral victories.

    Where they are leaking will require more than a week to tweek (don't know about tweak). Hope you've seen the peak of their leaks!

    I thought the broadcast was outstanding. Probably the best I've ever seen at Cajun Field.
