    It was still better than UL's. Hell, UL played TWO non D-1 teams. I hope y'all _____ and moan about your scheduling as well.

    Wade has potential there. But with the genius mind of Joe Alleva, he will find a way to mess things up and scare the man away.

Still major point of my prior posts was to illustrate how difficult it is to schedule here as many regional schools who don't have the program we do now refuse to play us. I imagine you were not aware of the difficulty of this situation for us.
    Yeah, honestly, I didn't realize it was that tough to get those kind of home games.

    I've enjoyed the friendly banter, that is what I was hoping for. Good luck and I'll be back after the game win or lose. Have a good evening.

    Congrats on the baseball victory and hope y'all turn it around.

    Don't worry. We have been down that road and back! It is hard to improve when schools (in state) refuse to schedule games. We had to go to South Carolina to get a good game. Others come from neutral site tournaments. We are forever trying to get the coach and AD to schedule better competition. We knock but everyone keeps their door closed.

    If you looked at other threads, there is lots of concern voiced about our schedule. Playing non D1 teams actually probably helped our RPI as the D1 teams we would have to bring in to complete a home schedule would bring it down. Did you see my posts about the no. of schools in the area who refuse to play us home and home. Just makes the challenge more difficult.

    Seems like LSU/UL could work out a 3 for 1 or something like that in basketball. I truly believe that both teams would benefit from playing each other.

    LSU baseball (Shortstop, in particular) was a little jumpy in the beginning at Russo Park last week... I think it had to do with this year's first truly hostile crowd (prior game @ SLU only) environment. That experience (even with the loss) well help LSU prepare for SEC play.

    Enjoyed the conversation with you as well. We all hope the bats come around for the Cajuns but hard to be optimistic when 25% of the season has past and little indications are that things are improving. I know the kids are still working hard and it may take until the season is nearly complete for things to click for all those young guys. As far as Wednesday night's game goes, if the Cajuns are healthy it is likely to be competitive throughout . If not, the Tigers probably pull away in the last 10 minutes. It is very unfortunate the health issues popped up for us at the most critical time of the season.

    Against a mediocre SunBelt conference and a strong SEC. It won't be easy...

I also remember seeing them beat Michigan although that was not the same Michigan team at that time but nonetheless, they beat them and should get credit. BUT, LSU with all these good wins has also ____ the bed numerous times this season and that really tells me they've been inconsistent. UL has not. That is what I'm hoping to see on Wednesday. LSU stumble a bit and us play like we did pretty much the entire conference season.
    Little Rock was pretty bad.

    Just heard Marlin on BR radio. Those guys are trying to create bulletin board materials. Asked Bob if he said LSU was scared to play them?

    Since 2010 the Tigers have played 15 games (all at home I think) against Louisiana schools.

    Now I'm not sure what our stance has been regarding playing in Baton Rouge without a return but there have certainly been plenty of games against in state competition.

    Absolutely not. If Maggard signs a 3 - 1 with LSU, I'll be furious. 2 - 1 max. LSU is nobody in college basketball.

    I'd do it.

    They may be nobodys on the national stage, but given our pathetic non-conference scheduling, our pathetic conference RPI, and the tremendous opportunity for in-state perception improvement, I say ANY scheduling deal with them is worth it.

    Respectfully disagree. Teams like Duke, UNC, Kansas? Sure, do a 3 - 1. Travel, RPI, exposure, experience, etc all much more involved. LSU is not worth a 3 - 1, in any sport, except football.
