Since you have had success coaching the football program at UL you should be able to help with this problem for sure. Lets be positive let the season play out and then make our negative comments.
    Again, you can be positive and be critical. However it is funny that you come here preaching positivity but you call out everyone. lol

    I'll be positive, the WBB team plays hard. That's about all I can say that's positive so far this season.

    His amount of giving means I'm more than willing to listen to him because he puts his money where his mouth is, rather than lecturing fans for their opinions. Given his background and his time with student athletes in the class room and in athletics, he brings some knowledge to the table that the average person does not have.

    When it comes to my comments, you won't find many on this board that are negative towards Coach Gary Brodhead. He is one of the most decent men I've met in my life. Now that doesn't mean his program's performance or his job performance are above approach. He has set a standard for his program and at this stage it isn't where it should be considering his tenure at UL. That's my opinion and my critique of his program and it if you take any such discussion personally, perhaps you should stay off message boards and grow up.

    College athletics is not a charity and it's not a high school where we are all cheer leaders as parents. When there are concerns, we should address them honestly and with no concern to whom may take it personally. As for football and mbb, both have had their success here at UL. I have discussed my concerns about Coach Marlin on this board and I will do so for Coach Napier as well when or if he reaches the years in tenure that Coach Brodhead has and is not performing up to expectations.
    Thanks!

    I have generally enjoyed watching Brodhead's teams play. They play hard, they clearly like playing together, and they usually beat the teams that they should beat. Regrettably, that doesn't make them a good team, and losing to NAIA schools never helps.
    I actually think the Doucet kid would have played on Coach Hall's team. She will get over 20 double doubles this season and is a tenacious rebounder. Guards have to protect the ball better and the whole team needs to communicate better on defense. It may take awhile but I expect the team to improve on these things as I know they will continue to work hard. No, they won't win the conference but they can set themselves up for long term success if they can keep the roster stable. All these "nice" things I just said means the Dillard loss is OK. It was a terrible blemish to the record and no one is anything but concerned with the result.

    I'm pretty sure we all want Garry, Bob, Billy, Robe and all UL coaches to have great success. He's been at this six years and we're still having trouble fielding a competitive complete team. That's on him just like success would be on him.

    He started about as low as ya can, and I never made a single comment during those first four years. Now six years into things he's struggling. That's on him and not a good thing.

    I like her as well; and I agree that she would have played for Hall; but she would have had to back up Petrakova in all but one year. She would probably have been a solid contributor, even if she didn't start.

    Yes, the Rogers years were pretty bad, but maybe continually bashing the guy here isn't the best idea. His son currently holds a football scholarship offer from UL. I'm guessing reading stuff like this about his father won't be much help in his recruitment.

    I don't think there has been very much written about Rogers in a good while; certainly nothing really nasty. If he is mentioned at all it has been pretty much in passing or a statement of the obvious that he was not at all successful here.

    Coaches, players, and family members of those should probably not participate here as it is likely something negative will be said at some point. On the other hand I seriously doubt anything posted here will impact any young athlete's decision on where they will attend school. The great majority of them are not even aware of the existence of this forum.
