Thread: UL hopes to sweep Rice Owls

  1. Default UL hopes to sweep Rice Owls


    Last year the Ragin' Cajuns got hot in the second half of the regular season, winning 23 of 27 games to secure a share of the league championship. After a 2-0 win at Rice on April 5, the Cajuns improved to 17-11 this season. But since that victory they've ...

    I don't get that kind of statement by Coach Robe. UL has been to a World Series and is no baseball slouch. UL would like to be in a conference like C-USA with Rice as a conference mate. We sound like we don't belong and are so thankful that they are blessing us with their presence. We should be playing Rice and Houston EVERY YEAR in EVERY SPORT. Maybe after Rice sees what kind of baseball atmosphere we have at the Tigue, we'll get more home & homes with them. I'll bet we had one of their best visiting team crowds this year in Houston and we beat them. This is our FUTURE, not schools like ULM and UALR.

    I heard Robe say this or something close a time or two. The way I take it is more of a dig at LSU and Tulane than thankful that Rice came here. I dont know though.

    Coach Robe is showing coach Graham respect for not being afraid to play the Cajuns in Lafayette. Some teams are scared and won't do it because they know they'll face a strong club. Getting a home-and-home set up with a program as strong as Rice isn't as easy as it sounds. Both sides have to want to do it, and even then you have to have similar open dates, be close enough proximity-wise due to travel expenses, etc.

    Coach Mainieri has agreed to play UL at the Tigue. Coach Robe has a good relationship with him, we talked about it yesterday. I would think it's more of a shot fired at Jones at Tulane and other regional programs in Texas and Mississippi.

    I know about LSU coming here BJ, but what the hell took so long? Tulane??? We did just fine this year without them. Rick Jones is a wuss.

    LSU is coming 1 time in 2013, what about all the other years that Mainieri has been the head coach at LSU? I think it's a shot fired at all the stuck up programs around us: LSU, Tulane, Houston, Atm, Texas, Ole Miss, MIss State, etc.

    GEAUX UL!

    See Skip Bertman below, give Mainieri credit. He was willing to do the deal despite some negative feedback from LSU insiders. I agree it's a shot fired at a number of programs.
