    Oh...and to make matters worse, we got beat up by a team in old school unis. Those same old school unis have attracted the top SBC recruiting classes for the past two years.

    We just plain got beat like a drum. Hats off to WKU. The wanted it and they took it.
    This I agree with. However, I would like to "pose" a few questions. Were we using a defensive rotation similar to the one we've been using during our win streak or were we just playing the same guys up front all night? Were we blitzing or just laying back in two deep zone? One thing I've noticed about our guys. In a game like this, if they've got man most of the time & they know who they're assigned to cover they can play. This way, you put pressure on their QB by bringing an extra guy from different angles. Now, if UL was doing that during the game, wouldn't Jay & Steve have wanted to mention it?

    If the coaching staff has a plan for the season that includes them taking a week off & choosing another time to pick our battles, then I'm all for it. But barring that as a strategy, I have to say I am somewhat disappointed in our decisions not to be more aggressive. As I have been reminded so many times while reading certain posts, we haven't achieved anything yet. If so, then what are we doing, taking out foot off the gas, when the message to the boys is keep your foot on the gas? I am simply refering to the decision to take the field goal instead of mashingthe ball down their throats in the first quarter. If you fail, then you depend on your defense for a safety or to hold them deep & you get the ball back in good shape. If our boys can't make it or hold them then we need new boys. If you don't give them the chance, then how do you ever know what they can do when the pressure's on? I don't mean to sound overly critical, but this should be a learning process for all involved.

    Hopefully this will loss will get the team focused. I think we learn a lot about the team and the staff next week.
    Damn Hammer, I read all your posts on here from last to first. I have to tell you IMO you have put everything in perfect perspective. Give this man a gold star Turbine! Hell, make it five stars.

    Does anyone know what time our boys are expected to arrive back at the airport? Does what time does the Airport Bar close?

    I think everybody needs to settle down a little. WKU is not a bad team at all. In fact, if not for a questionable call, they would have won AT Ark. State, and be 4-0 in conference. Losing to a good team, in conference, on the road, is nothing to be ashamed of. We need to remember that, although we have gotten off to a great start, we are still playing basically the same guys that were 3-9 last year. I'm not saying that these players are not capable, but let's keep our expectations somewhere near reality. We are still having an amazing season, and are far out-performing realistic expectations. Yes, it would be nice to win every week, but having won some close games, at home, does not make us invincible. I fully expect the team to bounce back, and play well next week. Even if we go 2-2 from this point forward, end up 8-4, and in New Orleans on December 17th, would anybody realistically be disappointed??? Let's put this one behind us, and get ready for next week. It's nothing but a step in the process.

    Geaux Cajuns!!

    [QUOTE=Turbine;355215]WKU beat UL this year for one reason -and one reason only- mark it down.

    WKU beat UL this year because they beat UL last year.[/QUOTE

    I see 19 reasons why we lost. You know those 19 little technicalities that those stupid statisticians keep tract of every game. I think the official term is points. Those 19 darn stupid points were what got the Cajuns 1 in the L column.

    what happen to the defense is pretty much what has happened most of the season, IMO. While they have played well at times, they have been bad in stretches also. Today the offense just didnt score enough to cover there butts. and the inability to run the ball, grind out some clock,really bit us. Defense stays on the field way to much. We got beat upfront on both sides of the ball. We have got to get better in these two areas. Stop worrying about bowl games, and worry about getting better as a team.

    We are 6-2 and not 2-6. By the posts of this board you would think the Cajuns were 2-6.

    You know, it's ok to blow off some steam after losing this game and nothing wrong with saying or writing it for those that act like nothing is wrong. We lost to a team that can't win at home, and we should have won this game no doubt. It's embarrassing really, and the team should feel bad about it. They got beat by a suck-azz team. Yeah, the fans don't have to be ok with it either. It's a game and not a season, so much to look forward to and the Cajuns can bounce back, and we will be behind this team for those upcoming games. But for now, this one was bad and you can't sugar coat it. Now, get the defense playing better for next week please and cut out those stupid penalties!

    So... now wku owns us in basketball AND football. I agree that the team must have bought into all of the 11-1 talk and did not come to play football.
