    Default Dr. Maggard, The Time is Now

    One of the single biggest issues at this great University throughout its history has been its inexplicably awful timing.

    For example, this athletic program awarded the fan base after its biggest win in school history by actually ELIMINATING resources. This athletic program failed to capitalize off maybe the single best G5 athletic year in history (2013-14), #1 Baseball team in the country, WCWS in softball, NCAA tourney in basketball, and NOLA bowl (in which we set attendance records) and 3 SBC championships. And for that? Nothing... NOTHING. (which is kinda why you're here).

    Jerry Baldwin was here WAY too long, and the inability for our admin to act on his firing further prolonged our destruction as a program.

    There are countless other examples, but I digress. Those things are not your problem or your burden. What IS your burden, respectfully, is our current situation. I'm imploring you, on behalf of the great folks that support this program, and frankly, supported your hiring, to please learn from history. The time is now. The bell curve is complete. Take this opportunity to rubber stamp your expectations onto this program, this admin, and this community. The time is now.

    We can't afford to wait another week, and we certainly can't afford another year of this embarrassment. As you know, we are hemorrhaging support, financially and reputation wise. The brand is being tarnished. The community at large has given up, and ULM was the nail in the coffin.

    I can't stress this enough, and my apologies if this comes off as rude, but LOSING TO ULM IS UNACCEPTABLE, any day, in any sport, at any time. It is the opinion of many respected boosters and supporters that Hudspeth be replaced and Will Hall installed as the interim coach. This would be a move respected and accepted by both the fan base and the players on our football team. Don't believe me? I encourage you to ask them (players and fans).

    Please don't let history repeat itself. Please understand, the time is now. If the State wants to get involved, we can take those matters into our hands when/if that time comes. The last time I checked, I still have a vote, and so do many folks around Acadiana. You know, as I do, that the private money is there. Allow them to buy out the contract.

    If we're serious about our expectations, it's time to take a stand and show the fans, the donors, the alumni, the students, the players, and yes, the STATE, that we're going to do what benefits UL. The time is now, Dr. Maggard.

    Calm down, if we get to 6 or 7 losses, im all in.

    If the sun shines of HUD's A** and he can get to a bowl game, someone else may take him off our hands and we avoid a buyout.

    Since the NCAA violations, nobody was ever and will ever take him off our hands. That's wishful thinking. It's time to rip off the band aid.

    My tolerance for stupidity is at an all time low. Especially after listening to Topham run his clueless mouth off on BEV.

    Listening to that ____ makes you realize why our fanbase is so GD apathetic...

    Last 28 games, we are a mere 16 points away from an 8-20 record including 2 FCS losses.

    We have the worst defense in the country.

    We have an attrition problem.

    Attendance and giving has collapsed.

    We're in a nosedive people.

    Successful people and successful programs don't care who they plss off.
    Think TCU didn't get backlash in Texas?
    Think VaTech didn't get backlash in Virgina?
    USF?
    Tulsa?
    Houston?
    NIU?

    This list goes on and on..
