However, to build a program, you need to start by winning conference. Losing in the first round of the NCAA tourney does very little to build your program. It's also a much more significant accomplishment. being the best team in your conference over an 18 game or 20 game schedule is much more difficult than winning 3 games in the tourney. That mindset that the NCAA is our only goal is a joke and I think the current staff and AD are starting to look at winning conference outright much more seriously now.

It would mean we won our conference out right and we are building something. There are teams that make the NCAA with losing records and that will happen again this year more than likely. Getting your ticket to the big dance doesn't actually always show the accomplishments of the regular season. To me its kind of like going to a bowl game with 6 wins.
    I agree with both of these posts.

    Hopefully ME, a fan who had season tickets for years, will be able to make his first game after the first of the year!

    They basically make a full lineup/6th man if they would have all gone to the same school. Would be fun for that type of thing to one day happen at UL.

    According to 247/Scout, the order is:
    1. Smart
    2. Butler
    3. Leblanc
    4. Williams
    5. Julien
    6. Gladney
    Heck, here is hoping that we get both Julien and Gladney and the kid from California(dad played at UL).

    Cajuns Men's RPI after a little help last night moved up to 95. Again, the Cajun opponents held up their end of the bargain, all but Tech, losing again.

    SLU
    UNO
    Richmond

    all won.

    I like how Warren Nolan breaks down RPI needs.

    That is cool, and does make following other games even more fun!

    When I noticed yesterday that they were hyphenating us, I sent them a very nice letter....I actually modified the one LexHead had sent another writer a while back....and est voila: today we are 'Louisiana.'

    Another high visibility site now in compliance.

    Actually, I have heard Bob say this publicly a few times. It definitely comes from him. Now, every time I've heard him say it, he was talking with Jay. And then Jay took it onto his show and made everyone who disagreed feel dumb...as he normally does.

    Jay and Bob's point is that "it's true". And it is. I don't dispute that at all. The reason I don't like it being said so freely by the coach is for fan interest reasons. I.e. why should moderate fans go pay a bunch of money to see a game that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things?

    Media does have a way of steering the conversation.

    I'm still thinking that they're referring to at large bids. Obviously the whole season matters for lots of reasons.

    Yeah, when the necksters play, it's always a win-win for us. If they win it helps our RPI. If they lose, well, that's a win too. LOL

    On another note, has it been confirmed that Gladney and Julien will play as Cajuns?

    Not really sure of the question, they have both signed with the Cajuns in the early signing period.
