    Express and I disagree about some basketball issues. However, I don't think he has had much to say negative after the individual games this season. His criticism is more of a long term view than any specific contest. One thing we do agree on is that it is unreasonable to expect to perform as well as last year at this point with three guys missing. That is especially the case when you consider we are missing two freshman we were counting on. They are hopeful Gladney gets the OK to practice within the next few days and he may play soon after that. That may help our depth issue.

    You got me curious about our all time record versus Tulane in men's basketball. According to
    Ragincajuns.com, this is our first victory. We had four losses dating back to 1958 until notching a win today. Geaux Cajuns!!

You have to do a whole bunch of things well when you shoot in the 30's. All of them are effort and focus plays. You have to minimize turnovers, play great defense, go to the glass hard, and make your free throws. We only had 7 turnovers which is excellent for a 40 minute game. We held Tulane to a percentage in the 30's as well, only allowed 27 second half points and forced 15 turnovers. We outrebounded a much bigger team and we shot just under 80 percent from the line. Still, you can't expect to win many games the way we have shot the ball recently. We have to find someone who can consistently knock down some perimeter shots. I keep hoping that will be Russell but he has yet to find his stroke although he hit two crucial ones today. He did have an injury over the summer which required surgery so maybe he has not fully recovered there. Going forward, it would not surprise me if we started shooting the ball a little better. Sometimes when you prove to yourself you can win without shooting well a few more drop in. Finally, this is the first time in my life I recall beating Tulane in basketball. That makes it a good day regardless of how much we struggled shooting the ball. Props to the guys one more time for finding a way to pull out a gritty win.

    Losing to ull is never acceptable. In any sport. Period.

    Shown above is a post about today from the Tulane message board. They are obviously frustrated. I would be too if the result had turned out different. I feel the guy's pain but in the end that makes the win more enjoyable for us. I will not however comment on their forum. No need to gloat when we have plenty of issues ourselves.

    Lamers better get used to it.

    I'll be taking the granddaughter to a victory over the hated UNeaux club Wednesday. I'm sure I'll have lots of elbow room

    That guy needs to go back to the academic side so he can complain in coherent sentences.

    I wouldn't endorse firing Marlin especially with the year he had last year. Hopefully we are on a path of enhanced success. I would just stop the damn multi-year extensions. We are currently under contract to him until 2023.

    First off, we got spoiled with multiple years of Shawn Long and Bryce Washington's inside play. We don't have that yet. But we have plenty to be thankful for.

    It's been mentioned many times how certain instate schools don't want to play us. The tournament gods, abet it took us losing to get there, gave us an opportunity and we made the most of it. An instate recruit won't see what our play was like in all likelihood since it was PVV. He'll see Louisiana beat Tulane

    Now go give thanks for something really important.

    Mike, I'm always hoping to eat crow burgers when it comes to the Big Fish. I honestly hope he doesn't lose another game in 2018/19 and walks away with a national trophy. I honestly hope he gets that bigger pay day he's coveted since day one at UL. I'm absolutely certain he's always given everything he can to actually coaching the team.

    I'm also certain he could have done a lot more in money raising, and scheduling.

    Again I'm hoping for crow burgers all year long.

    Scheduling wise, he could have done more. That would have required us to play more road games. I am certain they have done all they can to get home games with the understanding they won't play mid majors unless it is home and home. Now if you take that requirement out, things could be different. Going forward, the new conference format and planned scheduling alliance will make that much less of an issue.

    Heard today we have a few guys playing through injury. That may be why the shooting decreased as the tournament went on as they had to play three consecutive days. Thankful we have a week off to get healthy. Agree there are more important things to be thankful for and my family is doing that today.

    Can't get a pass on scheduling until he's actually tried to raise funds to buy some real division I games. He hasn't come close, those rebounder club don't come close Mike. And again I'm not ignoring the actual record against decent programs.

    But those issues aren't for a week beating the Lamers.

    Gant is battling tendonitis in his knee but fought through it to be named to the All-Tournament team.

    Gant is a thoroughbred so maybe we should consider:
