    THAT'S why you're not going to basketball games anymore? Haha. Some people just look for ANY excuse. We're talking an extra 100 yards, man!

Good lord we don't need five starters back to play well early.

    I in fact predicted we'd have plenty of excuses for Big Fish struggling early.
    It is a pretty unique situation. Yes there are 4 starters back but they won't all be starting, possibly just 2 of them start. I'm not saying chemistry will be an issue but it will take time to develop a rotation, that being said most everyone we play will be in the same boat.
    I'm not making excuses, I hope they come out guns blazing and knock off some of those big early opponents. However you want to look at it if you want to go dancing you have to win the conference tournament. Outside of maybe a 2-3 loss season with one of those being to another very good team in the championship game that is the only way it happens.

    I know this post was mAde tongue in cheek. However I am pretty sure Bob Marlin has never logged onto RAgin Pagin. He does share info of his program via Twitter and Basketball's Facebook page. Note I plan to offer few opinions of how the basketball team will perform this season. I will provide facts in order to provide answers to questions posed if I have knowledge of the issue raised. Only exception will be when something has been shared privately. Those occurrences are very rare. I have my own reasons for this approach.

    You buying the bs Marlin spouts, too? Next you'll be saying teams are afraid to come here. We have to win the tournament because we play half or more of our ooc games against teams with RPI of 250+, then finish 4th or 5th in the weak Sun Belt.

    If Big Fish coached and scheduled as good as he bs's fans, we'd be in the dance most years. Check his record vs rpi of 200 or less. It is awful. He fattens his record against teams that the little sisters of the poor could beat.

    Lot C has not moved. The requirement to be in lot C has been increased to 2500.

    Does the 2500 requirement include only the general fund or do contributions to the Rebounders club or other booster groups for that matter get included. Excellence Fund contributions should also count in my opinion.

    I'm just stating the facts about this schedule and the current state of the selection committee regarding mid majors. The scheduling issues have been hashed out many times before and never seems to get anywhere.

    Just the annual fund for whatever level is required...

    Looks like they actually changed it back to 1000 for the C-lot. All-Cajun gets a C and a D according to the current benefits chart posted... So KrazyKAjun can come to the games again! ;-)

    Really??? Dude, the tunnel is like 40' long. If you can't handle that you either need to get a handicap pass or a treadmill.

    I think this is one of the more talented teams we've had here in a while on paper. I think we will show some good things but I also think we will still have a hard time cracking the top 2-3 in conference. I want to win a conference championship but skeptical of that happening with a Bob Marlin lead team. I think we will be a 21-22 win team. Hopefully we can do some good things OOC to establish some momentum.

    You know I respect you and your style of information sharing, Mike. And yes... I was clowning around... mainly with the Marlin "haters"... given some of the current circumstances going on with other programs.

    A few years ago, Marlin was on a hotter seat... from a fan perspective... than any other sitting UL head coach. He hasn't done anything different relative to coaching performance... but by virtue of other UL head coaches apparent inability to avoid the hot seat... Bob looks like he gained some insulation. It may be temporary... and it may be irrelevant come basketball season... but for now... Bob is certainly not the center of negative fan attention.

    But the cupholders in the Cajundome are also weird. When you combine the 40' tunnel with the weird cupholder... it makes being a participating Cajuns fan pretty intolerable.

    .......about 5 bballers stopped by our ex player tailgate tent and we were very impressed with the bodies...the fats are slimmer and the skinniest are a lil muscled up.....pretty impressive pound differentials from last year,,,,,along with this it will be interesting how we play #s 1-5 with our height and substitution choices!!!

    I noticed a lot of area schools are playing exhibition games this month for Hurricance Relief, did we try to get one as well? Since we played in Cuba earlier we were not allowed?

    Bob Marlin is very aware of whats said on RP, like the other coaches. All coaches at UL have someone (or themselves) read this board.

    What the "I don't buy chemistry" people fail to realize is that we're going to be starting a true freshmen. Doesn't matter how well oiled your team is, that is a huge adjustment. Playing regular season NCAA basketball as compared to leisure ball in Cuba is also an adjustment. While we have experience returning, we're losing the rock of our team for the past 3 years, and that's at the most important position on the floor, PG.

    Ok, someone has either kidnapped CReb, or your account has been hacked brother. Your posting quality has gone through the roof in the last 3 weeks. Funny shtt right there.

    This should be the best the SBC has been in 20 years.
