    Sorry CajunKate, but everyone has the right to their own opinion and it certainly doesn't make yours right. I've been around football for a long time and I can tell you this staff made some game mangement mistakes last night that were very obvious to most folks that know a little about football. Yes, we have talent and we are better off then four years ago.But there comes a time when potential must turn into results.If you don't believe that then just look at attendance last night.We are averaging less per game then last year.
    It will be less if this staff does not start to win some of these games.That's just fact! Now you can label people bad fans all you want, but I will be at the game Thursday night.

    Okaaaaaayyyy...number one, the wink smiley should have tipped you off that I was teasing RedBug. And I certainly never meant to imply that my opinion was the only one. (Is that remark even something that can be labeled an opinion?) Frankly, I don't think I did. I haven't posted anything that rips on anyone else's opinion, at all. Oh, I'm sorry. I did rip a little on Mineshaft in another thread and told him to "put down the poison" but, all things considered, I don't think I was telling him his opinion didn't count.

    I know you have been around football. I have read your posts for a long time now. I actually agree with you on some of these points. I just happened not to post anything about my particular gripes.

    I NEVER, EVER called/labeled anyone a bad fan. You can be any kind of fan you like. I may not like it, but I wouldn't give you any ~~~~ for it on these boards. It's not me. I really do take offense to your suggestion that I did "labeled" anyone. I think you took a very benign statement and turned into a lot more than it was meant to be. It was a simple, teasing remark directed toward RedBug, not a slam toward any person who has issues with the football program or its coaching or anything else.
    I, too, will be at the game on Thursday night, just like I've been at every other Cajun home game for the last three years with my season tickets. I'll be the crazy chick in Section D3 screaming louder than any other person within 10 rows of me.

    Nor does it make your opinion right. Certainly every one has the right to express themselves, and there will be diagreements. To say that your years of experience makes YOU right seems a little sanctimonious.
    Mistakes by the coaching staff. Certainly! But tell me when did you ever see a game that the coaching staff did not make mistakes during the game.

    In some of these posts I sense a mentality that is very prevalent to the east of us. I too will be there Thursday and the rest of the home games. Hopefully, I can also make some of the away games.

    IMO...The "Incredible" Dez-Mo stays at QB....Move Mr. Babb to a Flanker position! Have our best players on the field!

    The coaching staff has entertained this idea however if one of the guys got hurt Huntley is green and has not learn the system yet so it would leave you thin as there is nobody behind Huntley with experience

    Calling people out because you don't agree with them is also sanctimonious bubba!It's not they are making any mistakes,it's they seem to be the same ones,get it.And don't try to say that because I'm making that point, that I'm like LSU fans.If you are going to disagree with my concerns, then tell me why you believe they are inaccurate.I guess it's easier to tell people they have an LSU mentality, then to debate my statement.So lets see,call people names and nothing of substance to say that my points are invalid. Now how is similar to the LSU crowd?

    To a extent we would but Mike got to observe for a year even though he didn't play.

    ONCE HE GETS A LITTLE MORE EXPERIENCE I THINK HE WILL BE THE BETTER THAN BABB HIS LEGS ARE SO VALUABLE TO THIS TEAM ESPICALLY WITH THE OFFENSIVE LINE WE HAVE. HIS RUN IN THE FOURTH QUARTER WAS ONE OF THE BEST PLAYS I HAVE SEEN MADE BY THIS TEAM IN A LONG TIME

    IT IS NOT DE-ZOR-MEAUX (HE IS NOT FROM LAFAYETTE)
    AND IT IS NOT DES-SO-MO

    Why not have Babb at Quarterback and D Mo at reciever. If Babb gets hurt you replace with D Mo and replace D Mo with a Reciver. If D Mo gets hurt you just replace him with a receiver. The only way you can get strait to Huntley is if Babb and D Mo get hurt on the same play. Unless that happens you'll always have one of them at Qback. We are that worried about one of them getting hurt and then having a green backup. Seriously, we are in the Sunbelt...how many good quarterbacks do you want. I think we're better at the quarterback position than LSU is (OH NO did I just type that) your damn right I did. I see this decision by the coaching staff to not play them both the same way I see them coaching games right now, Instead of trying to win they're trying not to lose.... you gotta get off your heels and hit somebody.

    Off the subject. I was at the UCF game. If im not mistaken we punted on the first possesion cause Babb went down and cause what I thought was a bad lateral call by the refs(I was sitting on the 49 yard line almost exactly in line with the play, it looked forward to me). Anyway, I dont believe we punted again until we tied the game. What Im saying is, is it just me or did we move the ball all night and then all of the sudden we tied it up. Then we played to not lose. Thats why (in my opinion) we are competitive butt not winning yet. Im hearing everyone saying we need to learn how to win, in regards to the players, I think the coaching staff is good..... they just need to learn how to win.

    Also my opinion. I was proud and impressed with our defense and the adjustments made, but I have way more cofidence in our offense on fourth and 1 from the 40. Please tell me why you wouldn't go for it. The option didn't lose yards all night. spread them out run a draw. QB sneak and let D Mo jump his @$$ for the first....I mean come on. I know there were only 18,000 of us, but at least 17,900 wanted the first down. I know we're mostly emotional but that's what wins games, and what do you expect...it's been 10 years, your damn right Im emotional.

    Who ever has to load the gun on the sidelines to shoot players and coaches in the foot needs a raise!!!!!!!!

    Man, no need to point out Flutie's lack of height! LOL I'm sure he's kinda sensitive about that.
