    The point being it was a lazy internal hire much like Munez as OC

    Still don't think he gets anyone to bite, writing was on the wall at that point. Pretty moot at this point. Again, that's the story id tell too if nobody wanted to come coach for me. If Hudspeth has a better option to save his 7 figure job he would have taken it. Coaches don't do people favors with a noose around their neck.

    Your point was not made because it was not a valid point. Do you think Napier did a national search for his assistants? Head coaches hire assistants who they have worked with before or who they are familiar with.

    What speaks volumes about the direction of our program is the fact the Baker would even consider the opportunity because UL could pay him $100K per year more in salary! You smucks were ____ing all over yourselves trashing Baker just a few days ago and you didn't show your ugly face until now. Too ashamed that your program can't afford to match a SBC program in salary for a assistant coach.
    LFMAO!!!!!!

    Hocke was with Alabama. You are correct on the rest of them.

    Going with Lucas in 16 was a brilliant emergency move by Hud. It just wasn't a good long term move.

    Call it what you want, Napier's options dwarfed whatever options Hud may have had at the moment.

    seriously? You must be a closet UL fan. To be on our page this much says it all. You obviously envy what we do at UL. If you don't, then why else would you be here? It can't be because you are an idiot? So, I'm just going to settle for ignorant and envy of what we have at UL.

    If I am wrong, then prove me wrong! Show me that you don't care about what we do by "Never showing up on this site ever again"

    👍🏼 Good luck.

    My disagreement with you involved one incorrect statement you made about national searches for assistant coaches. I could care less what hud did or did not do, head coaches hire assistants normally without a "national search."

    Don't you have a basketball program to worry about? Oh. Thats right yall suck. Well baseball is coming up... Oh heck. Nevermind. Its tough being a pup these days, huh?
    I've said it before. LATURD has topped out. There is nowhere for them to go. Louisiana, on the other hand has just begun to be the program it can be. We are on our way. Lturd is stuck in the mud.

    Roberts, who has coached the Lions since 2012, will join Billy Napier's Louisiana staff as defensive coordinator.

    "I got the call from Coach Napier on Wednesday, and it just kind of happened pretty quick," Roberts said Friday while preparing to leave Hammond for Lafayette. "I went over there, and you see all the things they're doing facility-wise, and the program. Coach Napier, I sat down with him. He's got a tremendous plan and a lot of things I firmly believe in. That was a huge part for me because I want to work for somebody I respect a lot. I think they're going in the right direction, and he definitely shows that. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to work for him."

    "They're going to give the opportunity to run it (defense), and I'm excited about it. I think the sky is the limit. I think we can go over there and do some great things in a hurry."

    Thompson, you're going to have a hell of a time removing your foot from the idiot's arse. My god, that was a massacre.

    Those petty losers up north sure have been quiet lately though.. Can't wait to see the excuses when we start owning their asses on the regular... lmao
