    Thanks. No big deal. My wife does not like any attention being placed on her so my son subbed for her. She said after all he is a UL grad while she went to some school to the east.

    UL Basketball Re: Back At Home! Ragin' Cajuns Host UT Arlington On Thursday

    Most of the missing ticket holders had given up on Marlin before the first practice this year. Now with the historic number of injuries they simply do all the honey-do things before baseball, softball, lawn work, spring cleaning, spring game, Easter-break. They've sworn off futile attempts to make Marlin some kind of iconic coach just having a nasty run.

    Have no doubt the injuries are real, and unprecedented in UL basketball history. That's why we're being totally outclassed. A healthy team would still have many Marlin created obstacles to overcome, but that's just an opinion based on his lackluster history here.

    And next year we can just blame it on a young team because of the injuries this year ... 2 birds with one stone

    Of course every 3rd year is a rebuild year so he is will be covered in 2022-23

    I thought that Spenkuch filled in okay, but he still has a ways to go. He played in the zone defense, but not sure he would play that much if the Cajuns were playing in man-to-man.
    Mike, if Cedric is hurting that much (and it showed last night), why doesn't Marlin give him a couple of minutes rest in the first and second halves? That is probably another reason Bob went with the zone all game long. Jaylon Williams could have played a couple of minutes in the zone defense and he has shown he can make a three point shot.

    Let's pay attention to the fact that coming in to the year, his 2 best players are still playing. Jalen Johnson and Cedric Russell. I'm over the injury excuse. The roster is just garbage if we are being honest. You are seeing that now.

    Personally I believe Malik Wilson is better than either of the two guys you mentioned but it is a matter of opinion. In some ways Julien is better than they as well. Especially since the Cedric Russell we are seeing now is no where near the healthy Cedric. I don't like using the word "garbage" when referring to people and players are people. I do agree that many of the players seeing time now are not as talented as we need to be competitive.

    I think he meant that the talk of the top 2 players on this team at the beginning of the year was those two players. Obviously, now we would have to put Wilson into that group but we didn't expect that on day 1.

    Mike, you don't call them "garbage" bc a) you have class and b) you realize its sports at the end of the day

    I'm just calling it what it is. It's a garbage product.

    Let's not forget all the talk about how Marlin was drooling over Jalen Johnson in the year he had to sit out. I don't see him being that good. I see why he struggled to get minutes at St. Louis. He's not very good on the defensive end and doesn't rebound well at all. But that's what we are. A bunch of unathletic pieces. It will always be a struggle every night.
