    The problem with Luke was the fact that Frankenstein could move faster than him. Our offense last year revolved more around what Babb could do with his legs than his arm. THe fact that he could scramble around in the back field is what allowed him to make his passes. Lets face it, last year we did not have a strong running game (no mystery to anyone) and a mediocre O-line (which now has experience)....imagine a QB back there that cant move! The situation with Luke was just he didnt fit the system, he wouldve been pounded if he saw signifigant playing time, he had no run support and no line!

    IMO, the reason he left, which is admirable, he wanted to play one more year before he hung his cleats up for good. He knew he wouldnt see it at our program with Babb and Freshman that would probably pass him up on the depth chart, so he went to a Division II school. I dont second guess coach for his decision, and wish luke the best with his senior season but he obviously is not Div I material!

    Luke was more of a pocket passer and would not have been able to fully run our offense but like ya'll I think he should have been given the chance to try. We would have had to go to less of an option type attack but from watching him in his little playing time he had a great arm and could have maybe got us an extra win or two but you can never tell. I'll leave all the real coaching to the guys who get payed to do it because I'm sure they know a little bit mroe than myself.

    Luke was not a good fit, but he had a great arm, he was just wasn't utilized properly. I don't quite understand how a "mediocre" O-line can go to an all-conference line in one season despite experience (of course I have questions about that). The fact is Babb hasn't shown he can throw effectively in pocket regardless of protection, but he seems to be better when scrambling. This contributes to his inability to throw deep consistently & the tendency to throw more interceptions than touchdowns. He would certainly benefit from an improved running game, when your qb is the leading rusher @ 498 yds, that's less than desirable.

    I am not saying that our Line is going to run the table with all-conference honors, but that fact that on the outside you had a freshman and a sophmore starting with no experience tends to drop you to mediocre status. They were not bad, but they werent great either! This years line is much more expereinced and yes I believe that 11 games under your belt makes you that much better of a player! Again, i state they are not a great line, but a much improved line with the potential to be great! I dont think i was unfair in my analysis.

    Ahhhhh. It's so nice to see someone who gets it on this board.

    Your evaluations are dead-on accurate.

    Thanks, my opinions are unpopular w/ some, but I have attended every game, home & away but two over the past three years. I comment what I see & know from 40 years of playing, coaching , & observing, not from some hype. Sometimes I think I get it right .

    just keep your eyes open for Conner Morel in the 2006 season
    he seems to be very athletic and pretty accurate

    From what little I saw of him in the spring game & comments from some of the players, I will agree w/ you. Will be tough to get PT over all the locals though if past trends continue.

    I think we have one hell of a player in Desormeax. He made all of the freshman mistakes I expected him to. He threw late over the middle and gave up some INTs. And that INT on the goal line, he just threw too flat. The pure potential he shows is exciting. My favorite play of the game was when he ran and jumped over a defender, just awesome. If Babb was in street clothes before the game was over, we might be seeing more of Desormeaux next week. I do hope to see Babb back as soon as possible though, just glad to see the backup puting in some quality minutes.

    The talk in the crowd was that Babb broke his collarbone. If so, that's likely season ending...

    I know that when Desormeaux was in high school (my alma mater) he worked with five wide reciever sets. He was extremely effective in this type of offense and he did made quick and proper decisions. All that needs to happen is for him to get used to the speed of the college game. Once he gets more college game experience...watch out! Fellow Cajun fans, we have something very special in this young QB.

    I've always felt Desormeaux would be our best option at QB but always knew he would never get a shot seeing as that he was behind Babb. I think once he becomes more experienced and the coaching staff puts more faith in him we'll have one very dangerous QB.

    Great showing Dez-Mo! Very fun to watch! You are incredible!

    Michael Desormeaux was thrust into the spotlight early in Saturday night's home game with Central Florida at Cajun Field, and the redshirt freshman showed flashes of the skills that made him such a highly recruited quarterback two years ago.

    His hurdle of UCF tacklers on a 19-yard run was the kind of thing even Desormeaux couldn't fully explain afterwards, but that kind of move helped the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns rally from a 21-0 deficit to tie the Knights 21-21 in the fourth period.

    But there were also moments when he was betrayed by his inexperience, throwing two interceptions including one in the UCF end zone after the Cajuns blocked a punt.

    "I'd give myself a 5 out of 10," said Desormeaux, who rushed for 76 yards and threw for 119 more in the disappointing 24-21 defeat. "I did a couple of good things, but I made some mistakes that ended up being crucial to the team."

    The rest of the story

    Not true. My brother is trainer and said Babb has a sprained shoulder, and he should be fine. Maybe not by Thursday, but Jerry should not be out for the season.

    Once Babb gets back I believe he should be our starter but with how athleticly gifted Desormeaux is we have to get him on the field. When he jumped the defenders and stayed on his feet to pick up that first down I was shocked and amazed. Great effort I just wish the result of the game would have been different.

    I like what I see in the quarterbacks. Babb with experience, Desormeaux young & with a lot of raw talent, and we know Hundley was awsome in High School & highly recruited.
    Running backs are very impressive also.

    The loss hurt last night, but the program IS moving forward.

    I'm sorry, but the voice of reason is not allowed here.
