    If you want to know what D1 Softball thinks of the Cajuns, go by their 2020 fantasy championship. I'm not bothering to post the link to their site, I'll just say South regional, not hosting, playing in Baton Rouge.

    So in their eyes, we are no better than 17 and if LSU is 8, no better than 25. WOW

    My bet is they lazily threw us in the BR regional due to location/past history. Doesn't change the fact that we will never get the respect we deserve until we win it all.

    Power 5 conferences are hard to overcome.

    I checked the Big 12 which has 10 members, Texas, TX Tech, Baylor, TCU, WV, OU, OSU, KU, KSU, & ISU. However, in baseball it has 9 members (Iowa State doesn't have baseball) and softball has only 7 members (KSU, TCU, WV don't have softball).

    Hypothetically, if UL could join the Big 12 in baseball and softball now, would we do it? The Sun Belt would likely kick us out. With the way Napier is building our football program, would we go Indy for a while in hopes of getting an invite to the Big 12 or AAC? That approach worked for E. Carolina. We need to take bold steps to separate us from SBC and CUSA schools to elevate us to a better conference and this could do it. What do we have to lose? I think our AD could fill our schedules. Would it elevate us or sink us? Certainly a possible risk - reward scenario.

    We would have just come off of sweeps of Georgia State and Texas State with the home match up against McNeese State on 4/1.
