    We bugged the staff for a year to make the offer to Mitchell. One person was a little slow in making the decision.

    The RBs look great! I am so impressed with Ragas. I am normally skeptical of a skill position player that redshirts at UL but he seems to be the real deal. Mitchell is a dynamic playmaker. They are certainly helped by the threat of a downfield passing attack and an offensive line that can hold blocks. Imagine what McGuire could have done in this offense!

    He only red shirted because of an injury in camp.

    They still maintain the opinion that they can get Vermilion parish athletes to walk on.

    Yep. That's something that has gone on for a long time as you know. This one had other options.

    Oh yeah I know all about it. Slow play a Vermilion parish kid because everyone is a damn Cajun here. I had options, just was to darn stubborn to leave the state.

    It won't ever change imo.

    I'm confused, for years now people have been begging for hud to totally stay away from the defense and let his DC's do their job...now people want hud to fix the defense?

    All things equal you take the local. That's a strategic decision. All things are rarely equal. You may be full up on running backs, but are desperate for a linebacker and there's one who you've rated equally from Shreveport to the running back from Carencro.

    If you truly think a kid is simply too immature for a scholarship this year you offer the preferred walk on. If he makes the two deep you need to then deliver the scholarship.

    .... Guess I don't catch this logic.....you judge whom you think worthy of a s-ship based on your evaluation of his ability......sometimes this could be skewed by immediate needs and what they can provide.....you offer based on this without regard go where they live, although it is great to get local kids......encourage borderline kids to walk on and it is then up to the kid to prove himself and btw have seen many through the years that have earned s-ships..... So I wonder how many from da parish we missed on that we offered???

    I can think of a QB, and it eventually cost Bustle his job.

    What I am saying is we slow play a lot of local athletes. Especially ones who may be TOPs qualifiers. It has cost us on several athletes. Or we just flat out don't recruit them as hard because it's easy to get to them.

    Mike D would have been the QB regardless. I'm sure if the staff saw a gaping hole at QB they would have offered him. Good player, but not what cost Bustle his job.

    Mike D would have started but McNeese wouldn't have had the hot hand that it did, thus saving Bustle the worst loss of his career.

    I like our running backs too. They're not the problem.
