    It certainly doesn't appear so over the prior two years. Not certain why you seem to take issue with 2016.

    Like I've said I won't argue that for a Cajun baseball team the last two years have been sub par and I think there are a lot of issues at play.

    I think that is a recruiting fault. We had mentally tough guys in 2015 and 2016, but most were not Talbot's recruits, but leftovers from his predecessor.

    Still, Robe is the top man and it is his responsibility to get that fixed.

    You have to be mentally tough in order to struggle the way we did this year and not lose more than two straight games all season. You have to be resilient, which is mental toughness.

    things I've heard and observed that tell me we have a mentality problem and

    1. No alpha male in the dugout

    2. Players cared more about what they wore than the game ( Robe even said this )

    3. Players calling out the fanbase during struggles

    That is more of a product of the schedule than mental toughness

    Went 4-7 to start the season & did not win series until April 7th but at least we did not lose 3 in a row!

    Lahare was the alpha. We just don't have enough alphas.

    Yeah, I think mentally tough is not the most accurate phrase. Mental toughness comprises many things. What we are talking about is attitude which is a subsegment of overall mental toughness. I think our guys were resilient this year, but did not have a alpha/killer attitude and instinct. We have a lot of quiet nonassuming guys.

    You did not see many dominating performances. We were good at outlasting opponents, but when our opponents turned over onto their back and showed us their throat, we didn't take it. You didn't see any of our pitchers get a big strikeout and stare down the other team. You didn't see our guys hit a bomb and stare down their pitcher or dug out. These little things are small, but are the characteristics of teams that will rip your throat out when they get the opportunity.

    The thing about getting rid of Robe is you will have to not only find an Ace of an replacement now...but do so every 3-4 years if they're successful...Robe is unique in that he hasn't and most likely will never look for a "bigger" job...going to have to hit the lottery every hire to maintain what hes done over his career here at UL...

    I don't want him gone...I want him to do his job and stop hedging his bets until the season is beyond repair. If he cannot do that...Lotief him.

    I never said get rid of him that is ridiculous, but he needs to be held accountable for subpar seasons. People on this board think he can do no wrong and those that say anything negative about him are idiots (borderline softball cult-like)

    I don't want him fired, but that sounds like the recipe for a very bad relationship. He's gonna be gone at some point and if that's all we have to look forward to, we are in trouble.

    It's a bad recipe having a successful, tenured coach who is still relatively young on staff??...that is 2 years removed from great success...and has had a hiccup for 2 consecutive seasons, one including a conference championship without his all-American??...yeah, maybe it's time we put him out to pasture...

    How many ____ing times do I have to say I don't want him fired. With that being said, NO ONE should be using the fact that he won't look for another job as a positive thing.

    TCU missed the postseason this year as did the almighty Deggs. TCU's program is light years ahead of us. For people to say it is not acceptable for our program to miss a regional every now and then is absurd. ____t happens.
