    Seems like the headline gave up just like our basketball team

    "Every time we play a conference game or any game, these teams come in and know that we are the standard. We have won more games than any team in the league over the last five years. We have the nicest gym. And we are the defending champions. And we are going to get everybody's best shot. And we got theirs tonight. I've seen their games, and it was the best game they've played tonight."

    Hurry up and get it out of your system before Willis comes back.

    There's really not much more to say than the fact that this team is a ruse to what they love to otherwise preach. We saw it last night.

    Few comments:

    I told ULvictory 2 hours before the game that we would get beaten. App St doesn't have the record, but they've played a real OOC schedule and are much better at home. I wasn't surprised that we lost, I was surprised at the margin. I was also surprised at how well they eliminated Gant from the game.

    Team was due for a letdown performance, as they've played over there heads for about 2 weeks. Even someone that hasn't payed close attention this year, like myself, can see the talent deficiencies, match up issues, lack of depth, lack of size and unwillingness to sell out of the defensive end.

    Eliminate Marlin's best team and worst team over the course of 9 years, and this is the team we'll consistently get. Again, I don't see what the big surprise is.

    We definitely talked about the spread and how close it was. That was a red flag for me.

    But this was beyond a letdown. This was a full-on butt whipping that exposed our team's numerous weaknesses. And to make matters worse, it was against the laughingstock of the conference.

    This is where the issue of last night with me lies. I don't care how many times we have beaten App State in the past. I don't care what kind of "team issues" are plaguing us. I don't even care if we played on the road. We should NEVER lose to a Sun Belt bottom dweller by 27 points. Ever.

    Last night was unacceptable by all accounts. There's no sunshine pumping it.

    Here's hoping for a better effort Saturday. Nothing really to say about last night except the obvious.

    I'm tired of talking about Marlin. I'm tired of arguing the same people that this is what we are expecting to get so this is what we will get if we average his tenure out. I don't want to state it any more because I don't want to hear the lame ___ excuses every time and get called "negative". People wonder why our excitement for basketball is down? Its not because its dead in the South, its because this is what we know we're going to see more times than not.

    i don't see a termination for Marlin, and hope last night was an anomaly. If not, I'd expect Marlin AND Broadhead to be on short leashes next year.

    None of us do either. That's why people get frustrated with his situation because we know there is nothing that anybody will do to remedy it.

    Let me say again for those in the back:

    Marlin isn't going anywhere as long as TJoe Savoie is the president and Marlin stays above .500.

    It is the biggest reason why I've given up on Cajuns basketball.
