    I've got a deployment coming up. I'm embarrassed by the amateurism shown by our coaching staff. Hudspeth has been embarrassing this university since the ACT scandal. He should have been fired with cause then.

    Now he is pressuring players to play when they are injured. He is chasing his tail and just like a dumbass dog will never figure out that he's his own worst enemy.

    If that is the case, public relations fallout would be very negative. If he was severely hurt, some coaches could lose their jobs over this.

    Would be brutal for UL football if that's truly the case.

    Would make zero sense to push one of your top 11 defenders to play hurt and potentially jeopardize losing him the rest of the season. With the coaches on the hot seat, why would they shoot themselves in the foot by blackballing a top player on an already weak defense??

    This is not a defense of the staff or anything. Just thinking out loud.

    A player leaving because of playing time. After the second game. That story in itself doesn't add up.

    WHAT?
    It makes 1000% sense if you've been told that performing well against the AAC is a high priority and your boss is sitting in the stands. Maybe Maggard is putting the heat on him. He coached desperate the entire game. Chased points, onside kick way to early, trick plays...

    Makes 10000% sense.

    Ok. You beat an AAC team, but once again finish no where near the top of SBC bc your only decent players are hurt long term. What does that get him? A pass?

    His contract gets him a pass.

    I don't think you guys understand subtlety.

    Hudspeth was told to perform well against AAC programs, or else. It wasn't a suggestion, it was stone cold bottom line TOLD to him.

    Can anyone get access to an official injury report from week 1 to week 2?

    If the University Brass actually told him that, glad to hear there is some accountability about to take place.

    Well, he lost to an AAC opponent this year and last year. Next opportunity is 2019 with Tulsa at home. Hopefully the opportunity doesn't present itself.

    Maggs coming in hot! He isn't playing around. I watched him on the sidelines in the first half of our home opener against SLU. He had a bunch of people around him. None of them were talking to him because he was fired up. Ripped a wrist band off pretty demonstrably (in anger) after our defense allowed a touchdown. Next play, Calais took the kickoff to the house (2nd one) and he got pumped up and clearly said, "Now let's get some F___in' defense!

    I've been told that this thread is getting attention from some members of the Holmes family. I do not wish to cause undue attention or harm to your family Ma'am/Sir. And I realize that you do not owe me, or this school anything at all. My intention was to bring to light the truth on what has happened between your son/brother/cousin/nephew/etc as it seems that losing players is becoming a common theme around here. As you know, Tanner was roommates with another player that left our program with little explanation, Cody Mitchell. A young man that I was very impressed by, was able to speak to and thought our future looked bright with guys like this choosing to be Ragin' Cajuns.

    I know it's not ideal, but I would encourage you guys to speak to the people that are and will be asking questions about whats going on. If not for your sake, for ours. I came away very impressed when meeting Tanner the one time I was able to, and wish you all nothing but the best. Again, please consider getting your story out.

    Thanks

    I see that our next head coach will be a defensive one.
