    _____
    Things will then transition to 7-on-7 drills where the secondary will go up against the skill players in what can amount to a lot of one-on-one action._ The day will then wrap up with a full scrimmage where the white team (offense) will go up against the vermilion team (defense) in a battle between both sides of the ball.

    CATCH UP WITH SOME OLD FRIENDS: Starting at 11:30 a.m., an hour before the spring game itself, the second annual Alumni Flag Football Game will be held on Cajun Field, and fans are encouraged to come out and watch some players from the Ragin' Cajuns past.

    BRING THOSE CANNED GOODS: Fans are encouraged to attend the Cajuns Alumni Game on Cajun Field that starts at 11:30 a.m. and runs until the start of the spring game at 12:30 p.m._ When coming to either the Alumni Game or the spring game fans can bring canned goods to donate to the Cajuns Canned Food Drive_as a part of the Geaux Cajuns Program Initiative.
    _____
    All canned goods collected will be donated to the FoodNet_Bank of Lafayette and student-athletes along with volunteers from the FoodNet_Bank will be at gates A, C & D to collect the canned goods.__Goods fans are encouraged to bring range from dry goods such as rice, pasta, dry beans and meals in a box._ Canned goods that can be brought to donate include tuna, fruit, vegetables and tomato sauce._

    GET YOUR CRAWFISH HERE: During the game Richard Farms and Crawfish Time on Ridge Road will be selling five-pound orders of Crawfish at $20 an order._ Fans can pay with cash or card and fans can buy their orders of Crawfish under the west tower main concourse area._ All money collected from the Crawfish orders will be donated to the RCAF.

    BOUNCING FOR JOY: Located near gate A there will be a Kids Zone set up and kids will be treated to an inflatable bouncy house, balloon animals and face painting._ The Kid Zone will open up at noon and run through the game.

    DANCING UNDER THE OAK TREE: Post-game there will be a free concert by Zydeco legend Keith Frank and fans are encouraged to swing by the oak tree near gate A._ The concert will start at approximately 2:30 p.m. following the conclusion of the game.

    RENEW THOSE SEASON TICKETS: Fans who had season tickets during the 2017 season have until April 21st to renew their season tickets for the 2018 season, by calling the Ragin' Cajuns ticket office at (337) 265-2357 or visiting www.ragincajuns.com/sb_output.aspx?form=36._ Fans who didn't have season tickets during the 2017 season, can get on the season tickets waiting list by visiting the same website or calling the Ragin' Cajuns ticket office.

    Two years ago, Richard Farms and Crawfish Time on Ridge Road teamed up to cater the crawfish and it was really good (see photo below).

    Last year, I don't know who boiled/catered the crawfish, but it was not nearly as good. I am happy to see they brought back Richard Farms and Crawfish Time this year.

    Looking forward to a great day with my fellow Ragin Cajun fans.

    This is the best part about the crawfish sale: All money collected from the Crawfish orders will be donated to the RCAF.

    I'm noticing that the game will be televised. I'm just curious as to what our status with CST is? We couldn't have football or basketball games televised, rather, we had to watch Grand Canyon games but we can get a spring game televised or watch Softball and baseball?

    ESPN has rights to football and basketball regular season. ESPN only has rights to conference tournaments for baseball and softball.

    We'll see about basketball OOC games this coming season. Agreement was announced in the middle of conference play for basketball.

    Espn has the first right of refusal if they don't air it we can sell it to anyone we want. that's why getting our 2nd & 3rd tier rights were so important.

    The next step is producing our own content, so we can control whats being broadcast much like North Korea

    ...or Facebook, or Google, or Twitter.

    The agreement with CST came after football season and well into basketball season. I do wonder what will be the case with those sports next year. I imagine all football games will be on ESPN3 or ESPN+. Not sure if any basketball games make it to CST.

    In the alumni flag football game Bill Bentley has caught two touchdown passes from Jake Delhomme.
