    Sounds like the Lotief's are self centered pieces of ____

    A one sided opinion piece published as a news story. Typical crappy journalism. They are milking this thing like crazy for website clicks

    Another wacky letter to the editor with a few half baked rationalizations for keeping the coach. Such as, a bunch of folks that like Mike, went to Walk Ons and drank beer.

    These MFer's are nuts.... i hope these crazy ___ people are never on jury duty for a rape case for something where the defense attorney says "jury, don't trust this 1 girl. There's 25 other women he slept with that said it was consensual".... the majority were all good with it!

    Again, folks are thinking with their hearts and being real selective about what are proving to be facts. Mike crossed the line when put his hands on someone.

    Ha ha. The consequence of this guys action of flying his plane in winds that were too high is that the plane was in a pile of rubble.

    The consequence of Lotief's actions is that his coaching career is in a pile of rubble.

    Actions have consequences.

    Facts don't care about your feelings.

    Les Miles got "schat canned" in a MUCH more public manner. He took the high road FROM DAY ONE, and still does to this day. So.....regarding Loteif: A piece of shcat is a piece of schat is a piece of shcat! No excuses for what he is doing.

    Thank you very much...I had so-so attitude towards him in the past, but now with the way that he is handling all of this he is nothing but a POS in my book. Leave those young g kids alone, encourage them to stay and rebuild...not ruin their lives for HIS mistakes.

    Have we interviewed anyone for the softball head coach position?

    Does any else think the release rule should only apply to scholarship recipients regardless...

    Also the headline seems either wrong or misleading.... Could mean only not giving release to players who came here as transfers. If UL is only school i ever went to i wouldnt be a "transfer" so they wouldnt be withholding a release from me

    They only published it because I made a public spectacle of their coverage first, and challenged them to be fair and publish the letter I was about to write. They almost had no choice.

    The coverage has stayed far from neutral. As far as I can tell, my letter is the only fair coverage this entire issue has gotten in the DA.

    I do not agree with the way Lotief spoke to and treated some Cajun softball players. The accusations are alarming and the university had no choice but to fire him.

    HOWEVER, the argument at the base of this letter is flawed. The whole point of this letter is that the way Lotief treated his players is not acceptable in a professional Work environment.

    Wellllll, NO ____!

    BasinBear, you have been outspoken about this. While coaching, did you ever talk to a player in a manner that would not be acceptable by HR in your post coaching career? Not trying to call you out it's just a fact on this board that you were once a coach. So did you ever raise your voice or say something that would not be acceptable in an office setting?

    You think the way Hud and Coaches (or any other NCAA football coach and most baseball and softball coaches) would fly with the HR team at my office?!?! I would bet a paycheck that some things are said at practice that would call for "immediate termination" by the local HR guy at 90% of businesses.

    Comparing the way NCAA coaches speak to and treat their players to how a professional is expected to treat their co-workers is pretty silly.

    If we want NCAA coaches to begin treating their players with the respect required in a professional setting then that's fine.....but to think that it is the current normal throughout college athletics today is being naive.

    This post is in no way defending Lotief's actions but pointing out the flaws in the argument trying to be made by writer.

    That's a good point....BUT....you're leaving out one VERY important caveat—football coaches coach BOYS/MEN, and Lotief coaches WOMEN!! GASP—I said it!! It may be 2017, but their is STILL a DIFFERENCE in calling a football lineman a p____, and saying that to a female softball player; or for that matter, using language at work on a female coworker as opposed to a male.....
    It's one thing if you're a drill Sargent in the military—women going through boot camp know what they're signing up for, but playing college sports?? Just sayin.....
