    But do we?

    Legitimate question. Not attacking.
    I've been to Troy several time while at Ft Rucker since they are 30 minutes away from each other. Troy is a university in a city about the size of Opelousas. The stadium is really nice and they have a tradition of winning with high risk kids. It's a decent campus and for all practical purposes it is on par with ours.

    As far as what we have to offer, we have the very best APC/IPF in the region outside of Houston and P5 programs. We have a dumpy stadium and zero tradition. We've never emphasized athletics as a university and the town doesn't truly embrace the Cajuns as it's home team. As much as we hate it, LSU still dominates Lafayette.

    That's our problem.

    In related news, Orgeron created an LLC for his contract with LSU.

    The name: "The Rosy Finch Boyz, LLC"

    All true, yet nobody in the SBC has the upside that we do.

    We've proven time and again if we put together 5 or 6 wins in a row, 30k + show up at Cajun Field.

    Just like baseball has become a top 25 program with top-10 attendance, football can become a top 40 program with top 5 attendance in the G5.

    I honestly think our ceiling attendance wise for a season average is around 37,000. If we have attractive Home scheduling and winning every home game. But that's gonna take a decade of winning 8 or 9 regular season games with a P5 win every third year.

    I had never seen the "Col Reb is Crying" video.
    This one is GREAT though.
    Love the "Chorus...": "...Gyo, Gyo, Gyo, Gyo, Gyo-yo....football...."

    It's hilarious that the original video had to be remade, because someone rehired him.
