    I'm pretty sure that Farmer has just been reassigned and not fired.

    Yes, I realize that but it was obviously a move to replace him as AD.

    Yep. And that's what I think is the only motivation that will create a 2017 or 2018 UL football head coach fire-hire. JMO

    Then that wasn't a firing.

    We are currently on ULM's level, the bottom of FBS, with a lame duck coach, just soaking in a big paycheck and most people with sense, knows he should be fired, and we can't because we don't have the balls or the cash and we just watch the program spiral downward to a place where we thought we would never return. Are we having fun yet?

    OK, maybe Hud can be "transferred" to be a PE coach. Either way Dr. Savoie makes the move when it's called for.

    I think the Cajuns will be 4-2 after the next 3 games. They squeaked out a win against a marginal 1-aa team and lost 2 games on the road where they were double digit underdogs. I am very pleased with the new offense and find the Cajuns entertaining to watch for the first time since Broadway was healthy.

    The defense was abysmal the first 2 games but showed some signs of life against aTm.

    I don't see a coach coasting or a team in a downward spiral. Before the season started I thought we would win 5 or 6. I now think 6 or 7.

    I wish this team had more talent on defense. There really isn't an excuse for being as thin at LB as we are. This is on our recruiting and retention.

    I think his chances of getting let go at the end of the year go up slightly if he loses to ULM. But if he still gets a bowl birth all the hollering done here will amount to little. All the other stuff you mentioned.... morale, etc has already happened and the administration has adjusted to the lower numbers. If they go lower, they will readjust accordingly, just like corporations who make less money.
    I know you disagree, but all the fire HUD talk is nothing more than an unwanted distraction at this point. There will be a time when he will have to answer for his record, but it will probably be after this season or next season.
    But go ahead, bang your drum if it makes you happy. I prefer to watch football without thinking about firing the coach after every bad play call or blown assignment. I watched first hand as my LSU friends did the exact same thing you are doing and they seemed pretty miserable to me.

    If we bring the attitude of the 1st half of A&M to every game there is not a belt team that can touch us ... Which is sad because we have so much talent

    I disagree with the so much talent comment. We should better and deeper at most positions.

    Thanks for the rational response. Yes I disagree wholeheartedly. But we can respectively agree to disagree.

    I think the realistic goal unfortunately for the program at this point and time is to make it thru a season and offseason without a major black eye. Everything else is a win

    Would like to hear your thoughts.
    Scott Farmer is not the only one he has transferred to another department. His reputation with the UL System Board was at stake, he had no choice but to remove Scott Farmer from the position of Athletic Director. He had every reason to terminate him for cause and didn't do it. Doc has done much for the university and deserves the credit for his decisions. But for those that know him well and had dealings with him, he is very much a political animal.

    The NFL is the ultimate evaluator of your talent base. I have not heard we have any NFL caliber players in our senior class. We are not more talented than our Sunbelt peers. I think with our high paid coach and above average facilities we should be doing better.

    I repeat, This thread is ridiculous at this point in the season. It only hurts our morale and we have not even played a conference game. I remember Ark State started 0-5 and won the durn Sunbelt that year. Sometimes the L stands for learn. Lets give our coach and team the best shot possible by showing our support "En Masse". If we only win 3 games this year, I will help sponsor a fund raiser for the buyout. I believe our new offense gives us a chance to win every week.

    I believe coaches fire themselves, meaning eventually Hudpseth's performance on and off the field will ultimately determine the rest of his tenure at UL. The question in my mind is what would Dr. Savoie do if the money was available and his AD advised him to terminate Hudspeth? Dr. Savoie is a person that considers political winds, doesn't like conflict and simply prefers to transfer poor performing subordinates to other departments rather than terminating them.
    I don't know the answer to the question as to what his decision would be were the funds available to make a staff change. I suspect he would consider political situations in such a decision. I also acknowledge there may be people that would be willing to find a buyout. I just don't know who those are. I also know how much the oil slump continues to ravage the local economy and that shows no signs of changing soon. That makes me skeptical there are many people who can put up the needed dollars. I also think that would prevent much of an attendance increase were a change made. Again this is a different situation as to the ? Of should a change be made. If the dollar are available, another losing season and it normally would be strongly considered.
