    Are they willing to walk on? Don't need local guys unwilling to walk on. Have to keep recruiting mediocre JC transfers. Keep that JC pipeline strong.

    I've heard it said that we don't have the best relationship with high schools in the Acadiana area. Can anyone say why that is?

    That charge has been around since Coach Stokley left.

    Probably because we let kids like Dugas from Northside go to LaTurd without a real offer until the last week of the recruiting season. Even when it was clear he was the best OL in the Acadiana area and one of the top 5 or 6 in the state.

    I'm as ____ed as the next guy about this season so far, but Les Miles et al did this regularly and folks would get all giddy over it. I have ZERO problem with Hud hopping game to game in a copter. If anything he's seeing more players that way and just like the Alice Shoe coaches, people KNEW who was arriving.
