    They've already "slipped up" several times... and they still won. The conference is that bad... combined with this Cajuns squad is the steadiest working group we've come across.

    Yep. When I look at the schedule, I fully expect a W in every single remaining game. However, I also think we will drop 1-2 games on the way to the tournament for the same reasons others' mentioned. And when we drop a game, I'm not gonna freak out and neither is the team.

    BUT...I've been waiting for that "off night conference L" for 4 weeks..and we haven't even come close yet...

    Agreed, this isn't your average conference favorite.

    It's really A bummer the conference is so down this year. If it were as good as last year it would really help the Cajuns be more battle tested. We would probably lose a couple of games but would still be the best team in the league and expected to win the tournament.

    Its hard to predict UL winning every game
    Left on the schedule. But it is more difficult to say in any individual game that you expect them to lose. They will be double digit favorites from here on out

    At this point we are the favorite, preseason picks are usually pretty meaningless unless a team is returning everyone...predicting a team with 3 P5 transfers that hadn't touched the court yet is proving to be more Meaninless. It's ours to lose

    That's true. It's a bummer the conference isn't better for the reason you stated... because even if we end the season with a gaudy record for the effort... our fans also expect us to be formidable in an NCAA or NIT opening round.

    As for winning every game in conference... there's no logic derived from what we are seeing to come up with "but they'll drop a game somewhere along the way". That's not "logic". In fact, as we put each W behind us... unless there's an opponent ahead deemed better than us... the probability of a "perfect conference season" increases. It does not decrease. Only fans "get more stressed" about some impending expectation unrealized. And when fans get stressed (those that fuel their own silly stress)... you read on fan boards projections of "dropping a game"... it's a fan's way of accepting an emotional hit a little bit at a time... instead of all at once.

    They will absolutely NOT be double digit favorites from here on out. Right now I would think we might be a road dog at Ga. State and if we are favored it won't be by more than two or three. We'll be a favorite at GS, but not a big one.

    We will also probably be single digit favorites when we go to Troy and USA.

    I'm interested on who is going to get their drawers in a wad when this team finally loses.

    That's 100% correct. We are in the driver's seat. It is ours to lose. I think the bigger note on this season isn't that we might go undefeated in conference. It's that this is a very mentally steady team. I honestly don't know how good they are... on balance with other teams in other conferences. But they are extremely tough mentally. It's a cool ride.

    That swing through Georgia will be no walk in the park. Ga State always plays tough at home and Ga Southern, like a wounded animal, is dangerous.

    If we do have to lose a game, I hope it's one where we just got sloppy and figured if we showed up we'd win. A loss like that just before the tourney wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing to get the guys really focused.

    Having said that, this team doesn't seem like that kind of team. There's a lot of character amongst this bunch.

You won't have to worry about the stress release I'm thinking. I just want to win conference first.
    In fact the last team in SBC to go undefeated in conference play did it 25 years ago

    Yeah I've noticed that a few times and usually the announced attendance is typically paid attendance

    It would be ridiculous to not include students in total attendance. Surely, they are not doing that, although I don't understand how they would get an accurate count without scanning students.

    The other people in attendance that aren't typically counted are kids who are entering using their Young Ragin' Cajuns Club card... Nothing to scan there... Most of the time, the door person just waives them through... I did notice ONCE this year, that the lady had one of those silver manual clicker counters that was at least attempting to count each entrant... but she was working the scanner in one hand and the clicker in the other. Good luck with that...

    Stroman will be a no show for the game if he plans to play Saturday night.....

    Well, he was pretty much a no show last night! But he will bounce back.

    My concern is that the other team will get hot when we have a bad night. It happens.
    I do love how this team can still stomp the other team even if we are having an off night.
