    Ragin' Cajuns Louisville's Pitino & adm. assistant S. Davenport wanted no part of the Ragin Cajuns!

    "Comments from Louisville Head Coach Rick Pitino (on the matchup with Louisiana-Lafayette)" "At the beginning of the year when we were looking at scheduling, (U of L administrative assistant) Scott Davenport was watching a lot of film on who to play and who not to play (non-conference). We were looking at playing Louisiana-Lafayette. Scott said `Coach, that's one of the teams we don't want to play.' They're a veteran team and they're loaded with talent, so we do know them. The good news is that we know them, but the bad news is that they're very talented. We have ourselves a very difficult opening round game. We've got to go right to work and be ready for them."

    Their out-of-conference games look weak.

    I was thinking the same thing when i looked at their schedule. They played 3 big ones from what i can tell against Kentucky, Iowa, and Florida and they only 1 against Florida. Early in the year florida wasn't playing very well either it was till late in the season they they began to play to their potential...this doesn't say much Louisville is still a very talented team but have they really been tested yet we wont find out until Friday.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in those comments from Coach Pitino. A lot of that is coach-speak designed to get his team focused on the first round game and not the second round. Having been beaten by the Cajuns years ago at Kentucky, he does know it is possible to lose to us. But I don't think he is too concerned.

    Neither he nor his players are concerned about us. Louisville is a terrific team, and they probably are thinking Final Four. Sometimes when you are looking ahead, baaaaddd things can happen. I hope our guys are up to the task, and it is a big one. If we play like we did against Denver it could get interesting. I just hope we don't get the "short end of the stick" like we did against TN some years back.

    I just wanted to say that I am very pleased with the opponent selected for Louisiana. This is the point of the season where all the pre-conference scheduling pays off. I'd rather see Louisiana go against a national powerhouse rather than a johnny-come-lately squad like LSU. Louisiana will get a ton of positive recognition after friday's match. So, on with the real and death to the fakers.

    Pitino is world famous for sandbagging, it is actually quite the running joke w/ us Card fans. As for our schedule, we went 8-2 against teams in the NCAA tourney field this year, 2nd best such record. We got knocked for the bottom feeders in CUSA being so lowly rated, yet our schedule called for us to play the 3 toughest teams in the conference home and away, and we still won the conference by 2 full games.

    I think that UL athletics will be great in 2005. Our Baseball team is ranked in the top 25 in the nation, our Softball team top 10. I think that they both are going to a Super Regionals. I think that the Basketball team will beat Louisville a surprising upset. Our football team will make a run at the New Orleans Bowl. I think our Basketball team is pumped, and I think want a win, nothing beats passion, and I think this team has the passion to win. Plus a leader that has the passion, and he is the general driving the passion. We will prosper and survive in 2005. I predict a win against Louisville.
