    Look at post #1 on this thread - Guilbeau at Advertiser reported Wade using fan bulletin board material as motivation on midget issue - gave bad info to point guard regarding Coach Marlin.

    Maybe the interview was edited and we were not privy to the full interview, but as a beat writer for LSU, I doubt seriously he would take the chance to make up disinformation against the team he is reporting.

    But that's just it: neither the article or clip shows him saying that he now knows that Marlin did not say what he accused him of saying. The only thing we have are Glenn's words....and I'd like more than that. I've emailed him to share his source. We shall see.

    Lol. Who called Waters a midget?
    It actually originated on Tiger Droppings. I remember copying it and pasting here and then deleted it within about 2 minutes on this board. But it did not originate from here. I'll see if I can find the thread and link.

    Also said about the timeout with 10 seconds left, "they don't get to play us very often, so I thought they should enjoy it a lil more".

    Thanks Marlin. Maybe you will learn to shut up next time.
    Fake news dude. Marlin never said or implied LSU, Wade, were afraid to play us. But never let the truth interfere with whatever make y'all feel good about yourselves.

    Ignore the troll. This is the same poster who posts on that other message board (Droppings) and constantly belittles us (calls us USL, says we are irrelevant, etc.) while trying to pretend he's a UL grad on here. We exposed his _____ the other day.

    We need to just shut up and beat them!
    you're not we, teams rarely win on the road, but y'all found out how to get blown away at Utah.

    That's because he never said it. What he did say was that they didn't want to play us. He was talking about their unwillingness to schedule us and he commented that they probably don't even want to play us in the NIT meaning they don't want to but have to. They took it as him saying they were scared to play when Marlin was just trying to plant the seed that they were only playing us because the NIT scheduled it, not because they wanted to.

    ..........and one thing not mentioned specifically.......yes LSU plays other in state schools and there is one difference when they play us in anything.....they are much more up for the game and I don't think any would deny this. Does anyone think that they weren't more pumped for our baseball game earlier this year or even the basketball game at their place? And just based on national statistical data, There is home team advantage which we never seem to enjoy.......the LSU visit to UL in baseball was surely different than their playing anywhere else other than sec rivals!!!

    To be clear, what I'm looking for....and still have not found....is Wade saying that he now knows that Marlin never said those things.

    I would venture to say that the Tigue is a better home field advantage than more than half of the SEC parks. Easy.

    Playing in Lafayette would be a good test for LSU basketball, baseball and softball. If you can win here, you can win anywhere. Most LSU coaches, however, do not want to take that chance and, therefore, miss a great opportunity to build the character of their teams before conference play. To paraphrase the SEC channel "LSU vs. UL, it just means more."

    Yep.....and keep in mind that they easily have the best baseball programs in the nation.

    Boomer they will never play in Lafayette in any sport on a regular basis. They will never give this rivalry a chance to develop into what it can be. If they would it would give our series in softball, baseball and basketball legitimacy.

    They will not ever admit to themselves that they love playing the Cajuns. It is their most exciting OOC game in every sport when we match up with them. Even in football where we are so far removed from their elite level it's not even funny.

    I'll say it one more time, LSU coming to Lafayette on a regular basis only gives us the opportunity to change a one sided rivalry into something real. We won't get that chance.
