Am I trusting the process... 100%. Our goals are bigger than one game tonight. Just sayin'...
    I would be more confident and agree with you had I not seen what I witnessed tonight. Yes, we left 10 points on the field tonight but the Billy Napier's play calling was the worst I've seen from him since he became HC. We score at the end of the 1st half and I thought he would make adjustments, but he got taken to the woodshed in the second half. Clearly out schemed, with a total of 60 yards in the second half? Here's what we know going forward after tonight. 1) We are not good enough to win the conference right now. 2) Billy Napier is not the best coach right now in this conference. 3) We have no FG kicker on the roster. 4) Our QB is not good enough to win this conference either.

    A 1 loss season was an absolute possibility.. which would do wonders for this program. And we ____ the bed
    The New Orleans bowl is best option because it means that we win the conference title game. The winner of that automatically goes there

    I know we left a lot of points on the field but the refs absolutely didn't call a fair game tonight. I was impressed by our defense and this game shows that we are capable of beating App State and they're not really better than us.
    That said, we really need to win these games because losses like these are the reason this fan base is so small and dwindling. You can't ask people to come to the game and put in offensive performances like this. Hopefully we get it together and earn a rematch for the championship game.

    Agree. Naps is still learning,finding a Field goal kicker would equal winning lottery, and Lewis is patch work until others learn the system. App St is not that much more talented than us. Thomas was the difference in the game . He knew when to run, he could pass down field, and had confidence.

    No I know how Buford Pusser felt when he thought he had all the moonshiners busted. Congratulations Hillbillys.

    Got home and I had recorded the game. CONFIRMED...NOT A TOUCHDOWN BY REPLAY. In fact, first defensive contact was behind the LOS.

    Bright side, Napier will be back next year.

    We had our chances tonight. The coaches and players will gag watching the film. Despite the offense 2nd half struggles I'm proud of our defense keeping us in the game. Now we need the offense to return with a vengeance against Ark St.

    Oh don't worry we will be right back to the originally 12k people that support no matter what. I just don't wanna hear about the lack of support anymore. App is a conference mate, not f'n Alabama..they are our peers and own our f'n ___..changed staffs and continue to own our ___. Also the concessions were f'n terrible, missed almost the entire 2nd quarter waiting for 2 waters..couldn't even keep up bc there is no service. This university will never get the ____ out of its own way. Its a complete f'n joke.

    If I could ask 3 questions of Coach Napier, they would be
    1). With the running game being ULs strong point and passing game yet to materialize, why did you not utilize your RBs more
    2) along the same lines what did you see tonight that convinced you on 2nd and goal from the 1 to throw a pass vs running the ball?
    3). Are defensive ends coached to contain everything inside vs heading to the middle every play, thus getting faked and out of position?

    At least most of you guys are not Dodgers fans also like I am. They give new meaning to the word choke.

    The first thought is what irks me most. Their D line was faster than our O line. But i figured we would run right at them and wear them down like wisconsin does on offense and take control in 4th Qtr. THe play calling was utterly baffling tonight. Our deficiency at Field goal kicker, and Qb will be exposed further. We can expect to see stacked lines rest of the season now. I am amazed it took until tonight.

    ......A tale of 2 passes....one for the Cajuns with defender holding and not turning for the ball and no interference ...the other the Cajuns defending and back turns and goes for the ball....2 refs in close area make no call——one by the App bench makes call very late softer calls from the App sideline

    I just wanted to say great game. I know you guys are upset and for some reason some of you think you are elite to us but we have done a great job of collecting speed. Coaching is part of the game. Our defense was the best they have been all year. Our DC is finally getting it and we have high expectations.

    I think you guys have the best stable of backs in the league but Evans is a heck of one. Your OL is definitely bigger but our lines are faster and more athletic. We have gone after speed over size up front and at the G5 level that is the better approach. If we were in a P5 league then you need both but luckily in the SBC we are able to win with just having superior speed.

    I don't get why some of you seem to hate us but if we had lost I would congratulate you. Right now we are lucky to be the best team in the league. I can assure you nobody at the SBC is trying to ensure we go to a NY6 Bowl. We could go 13-0 and still not be guaranteed to because of Boise State and the AAC champ. I think the refs just let the lineman play for the most part on both sides. You guys had a PI that was not called that should have been. We had one on our side as well. It happens.

    We were able to wear you down late with our depth. I feel like right now you guys are better in a couple areas than us but we are faster overall and definitely deeper. Napier will get you there. He is a good coach and I don't get why some of you seem to think he is not.

    Good luck the rest of the way and I hope to see you guys in Boone again. I know we have dominated this rivalry lately but I know a program like you guys could turn the tables on us. I'm just glad that ESPN does not settle games and we get to do it on the field.

    I think Napier tried to but we did a good job of penetrating and closing gaps. I know we game planned heavy for the run and decided we would make your QB win the game with his arm.

    Look at all the dropped passes you had. You have to catch the ball when it hits your hands and I saw at least 3 or 4 drops by your receivers.

    Remember this, our playbook is not even halfway open. We have yet to feed the tight ends a lot, done very few trick plays, and we did not feed the ball to Corey Sutton. We feel like Sutton, just like your top 2 RBs, is an elite skill player who will play on Sundays. As good as I felt our coaching was we still were conservative in many ways. I'm pretty sure both teams will open it up a lot more and make adjustments if there is a rematch.

    I feel like we were able to hold your star RBs in check better than they did. You guys held Evans in check a little for us. He usually has some long breakout runs but did not tonight. If you would have told us before the game that you would hold Evans under 80 yards I would have said we lose.

    Serious question to you guys. We beat you by 10 just like Miss State. From what you saw Miss State do to you where do you think we stack up? Would you pull for us or expect us to beat them? Do you think it would be close?

    You guys beat miss state in my opinion. We could have won that game much like this one and should have if not for dumb mistakes and the intangible that we have not figured out yet that you guys have, which is to stand tall with the big boys and beat them.
