    The Bulldog, IMO, wouldn't be ideal. I wouldn't feel comfortable bringing my kids or family there. The crowd that frequents that place has really gone down hill.

    Going back to Boomers idea: I like it. I Ragin Pagin get-together. Turb can take up donations (to further progress the iphone app and possibly to arrange future shin-digs for our fine posters). A few Saturday evenings, when the Cajuns are out of town and televised, of about 25 - 40 of us showing up, spending money, creating a fun atmosphere, and making our presence felt would get the attention of ANY establishment in Lafayette. Not to mention the fact that once said get-together actually takes place, is a success and word gets out, it will only grow exponentially. You guys know its true. Lets stop talking about it, and make something happen.

    Without reading the entire thread, I can completely agree with the ridiculous amount of lsu-ness going on Saturday. I live in Shreveport. You would think it was a suburb of BR on gamedays (it has gotten much better, but still not where we would want).

    I drove to Hattiesburg this weekend and couldnt drive 10 miles without being cut off by some redneck @$$ with an lsu sticker. Got to Hattiesburg, checked in my hotel, asked the hotel clerk the best place to park at the stadium, she didnt even know there was a game Saturday (and I would put SO Miss ahead of ULL & Tech in owning a market).

    This is not even mentioning the same exact scenario described in the initial post happened at a Ruston restaurant some friends were at trying to watch the game.

    I guess theres not really a point to my rambling other than letting you guys know as much as I am supposed to "hate" the Cajuns, I know exactly how your true fans feel about the "state school."

    At least football is HERE!!


  3. Default Cajuns still growing on sports bar crowd

    If Lafayette residents watched the University of Louisiana men’s basketball team grab its first NCAA Tournament bid since 2005, they likely did it from the comfort of their own homes.

    The few sports bars open Sunday were not exactly flooded with Ragin’ Cajun fans waiting to see the 23-11 team take down the Georgia State University Panthers in a thrilling 82-81 overtime victory.

    Well years of poor marketing by bars and the pseudo shunning of Cajun fans must have taken their toll.

    You can't get away with just being pro UL during a coaches show (ignore the rest of the week) and expect crowds to flock to you when an event happens.

    They demonstrated that indifference with one of the commercials they ran during the basketball game talking about their LSU beginning. It doesn't take much to offend a diehard Cajun fan on this subject.

    Pretty sure Walk-Ons cares about their clients. If not enough UL fans show to demand fair treatment they will go with LSU fans. It is simply a matter of money.

    Walk Ons did a great job last night of hosting the SBC tournament championship celebration.
