Easy there Hoss. No I don't like what happened, but I do think it's unfair to judge any new coach until at least three years have passed. More at a high academic institution. Given I was in Mike's home right after Stefni got back from the hospital you might want to confirm your target before you fire.

I don't know that anyone can succeed there till the current AD created culture is changed but if anyone can do it, it would be the present coach.

If you check my past posts you will find one or two explaining what a LARGE challenge Glasco faces and while I'm a Mike and Stefni fan, I'm not mad at Glasco. I liked his daughter's swing and I like the results of one hs kid I know well who worked with him and I like what I've heard he says about the swing.

Yep

Well...Mike's players have always shown a knack to hit for power. The story goes, back in the day, when any discussion of intentionally hitting for power in fastpitch was heresy, Mike decided the way they were going to win at a national level with less than blue chip recruits was to hit the ball out of the park...a lot. That was unheard of at the time. He was a D1 pioneer, to my knowledge, in terms of intent and a pioneer in terms of taking everything he learned about hitting and crafting it into his own protocols while quieting all the naysayers about his methods. First time he put a slapper into the lineup he laughingly said "now everyone will say I'm finally figuring it out but the truth is this is the first kid I've gotten in here who is fast enough".

I have followed ULL from afar and they always have 1 or 2 newcomers come out and light it up, for example S.Landry hit 18 hrs as a freshman, A CREIGHTON hit 19 as a freshman, Haden hit 15. Gomez hit 20 as a freshman just to name a few. All I know is that it must be harder to hit dingers than everyone has been saying
Do I think Glasco will do what Mike and Stefni did or better? No I don't expect him to do what no one else has EVER done before the Lotiefs at a school like UL. That would be unfair. I do expect him to do better than most coaches would do in this situation. Having said that, it's absurd to judge him this quickly. Feel free to judge the AD.

Cajuns give up 3 unearned runs in the bottom of the 7th. It took until the 13th inning for the Cajuns to score another run, the Panthers counter with 2 to win 7-6.

Louisiana heads to Hammond for a game against Southeastern Louisiana on Wednesday before welcoming Texas State next weekend.

In time, they will get better. Pretty sure though the AD is not interested in softball being their most successful sport.

No AD is. Football still "drives the bus," but this AD is interested in all sports being successful.

Two great games against two evenly matched (for the first time) top 25 teams. Wish I could of been there this weekend as I have enjoyed my trips in the past to watch my daughter play. I’m missing the Old Tyme shrimp Po boys. Today’s game should be a good one.

Cajuns take the rubber game against Texas State today 3-1 with Summer Ellison getting the win and Randi Rupp taking the loss. This is the Cajuns 43 consecutive Sun Belt Conference series win dating back to March of 2013.

Wow. Has Louisiana ever lost five conference games to five different conference teams before? I don’t think that has ever happened, although I know this is a transitional year for them.

2007 was the first season a full conference schedule was played and that was the only season this has occurred. The Cajuns finished 15-8, losing to Middle Tennessee State (2), Florida International (3), South Alabama, Troy and ULM (1 each).

I have to balance my expectations as a fan with my analysis as a sports official, and say I agree with you. When the season began, I looked at the roster and said, realistically, there are 3 maybe 4 players from which I expect any type of output. I figured Kelli Martinez would be a good leadoff hitter, setting the table for the run producers. I expected Kara Gremillion to be the clutch hitter in this lineup, Lexie Comeaux to be the best run producer and Alissa Dalton would contribute in some way. Other than Kelli and Kara, I had no idea how strong this team would be defensively.

As they started playing and I could watch the development of these players, it truly is amazing that they are still winning conference series as consistently as they are. This was going to be the conference's best shot at "getting" the Cajuns. As talented as some of these players are, their experience level makes them all pretty much role players, not superstars. But they have shown a grittiness that has overcome many of the adversities they face. I'm still not sure what to expect of this team the rest of the season, but it will be both interesting and frustrating to watch.

True definition of a wildcard! I would love and hate to have this team in my regional.

Louisiana closes out the regular season with a 3 game sweep of ULM. It took 14 innings to win game 1 Friday night, 1-0. Game 2 was a 5-3 "slugfest," game 3 was 1-0 again. The Cajuns will play on Thursday as the #2 seed in the conference tournament.
