Rudy, got your red card?....... Cajuns better carry their red(UL) card with them if they leave south Louisiana on a trip...........If not, they could get deported back real quick............

The red card allows 'em entry into any softball park for three days...........After that, time to go back home..............Don't worry about feeding 'em, they'll cook a pot of gumbo in the parking lot..

Lol - you mad bro?

LSU has had the upper hand the past few years. ULL definitely had them up until about five years ago, but the tide has turned

2008 Baton Rouge Regional  UL 9 LSU 4, UL 6 LSU 3    Tigers ELIMINATED
2010 Baton Rouge Regional  UL 1 LSU 0    Tigers ELIMINATED
2013 Baton Rouge Regional  UL 3 LSU 0, UL 1 LSU 0    Tigers ELIMINATED

Total Dominance

Durden, you're spreading fake news..........That won't fly on this thread.........

Yelloworb posted the real, and truthful, news..........Those stats are the reason LSU won't schedule UL.........


Now, I don't recall Wilmer answering my last question..........What's up with that?

Never said anything about head-to-head matchup's for five or eight years ago. The LSU program is better than a UL L program for the past three years. I believe they were have actually made it to the World Series in that time frame.

Lost 4 key players from last years team, and it will show up at times during the season. This team will win some, but they will also lose some they would not have last year.

What is your definition of a "very young team"?
1B - Senior; 2B - Senior; SS - Junior; 3B - Sophmore; LF - Junior; CF - Junior; RF -- RS Freshman; C - Sophmore; P - Senior (No. 1), Freshman (No. 2).

Several players starting for the first time, as in the catcher position, 2nd base, right field, and still young at 3rd as a sophomore. Good enough Wilma [rolleyes]

Hilarious yet sad, the idea of miscreants--on a board dedicated to a women's sport--casting a feminization of a name as a pejorative.

I remember when that putz Jim Everett went off on his equal Jim Rome when Rome called him Chris.

If only Everett had been even a 10th of the athlete Chris Evert had been.

It was the greatest compliment he had ever been given, and he was too much of a moron to process it that way

Which has a lot to do with the matchup's your referenced. Not all brackets are created equal.

So if I understand your post, you are inferring that the NCAA has given LSU much easier brackets than UL-L over the 3 year period that Narrator has referred to?  That the NCAA has some sort of bias against UL-L?  Wasn't your old AD on the selection committee for this 3 year period?

Yes............Oklahoma was a pretty tough SR opponent..........James Madison, not so much............



Now, Wilmer will you finally answer my question to you?

LOL.  It's UL-L against the world!  You can always count on the UL-L fanatics to bring up the conspiracies about NCAA bias against the Cajuns.  If that was indeed the case, then that would mean that your old AD was in on the fix since he was on the selection committee and was working from within to undermine the Cajuns.

The stores in Lafayette must have a hard time keeping tin foil stocked on the shelves.

I've always thought games are a good bit about match-ups. I've watched a lot of Cajun games and we've historically done better against some than others, and they aren't always ones that when looking at their overall records you would think you struggle against. My reference was to the matchup-ups. The Cajuns made the WCWS in 2014, lost in the 2015 SR to Auburn (#4 national seed) at Auburn, and lost in the SR to Oklahoma (#3 national seed) in Norman. Would I have loved to be in the WCWS all three years, yep, but I'm not disappointed in the three year's we've had either. Nor would I trade the last 35 either.

Also, I may not directly root for your team but I do somewhat take pride in the success of the LSU and Alabama programs as I don't think they'd be where they are without the contributions of the Cajuns.

Or maybe they don't want their RPI to drop by playing UL-L.



I asked Wilmer.......
Quote:
Wilmer, you sure seem to be worried about RPI..........

But, that doesn't explain why LSU has no problem scheduling McNeese, Nicholls, ULM, Northwestern State and Louisiana Tech...........All five are in-state schools who, year-in and year-out aren't RPI-positive schools to play........

Do you care to offer an explanation for this little discrepancy in your scenario?


So, Wilmer, do you have an answer for this?.....It seems you're dodging this question.......Are you?

In the first place, there are no UL-L fanatics unless it's those who insist upon using a reference to a non-existent team. Fans of the Ragin' Cajuns are Louisiana fans just as those who are fans of the Tigers in Baton Rouge are LSU fans, not fans of LSU A&M and MC.

As far as NCAA bias, well, you can judge for yourself if the selection committees over the years (let's just look at the last 5) have made adjustments to the Cajuns seeding. In 2012, the Cajuns had a #12 rpi ranking and were the #14 national seed. In 2013, #17 rpi, traveled to Baton Rouge in the #9 seeded region. LSU was the #6 rpi that year. In 2014, the Cajuns were #6 rpi and were awarded the #6 national seed. In 2015, the Cajuns were #11 rpi, #13 seed. Last year, #10 rpi, #14 seed. I won't call that bias, but you can see a consistent adjustment downward to the Cajuns rpi ranking. As far as Scott Farmer being on the committee is concerned, one person does not sway the committee, not even the chairman. For whatever reason/s, even when the committee is made up of more representatives from non-P5 schools, the P5 teams seem to be treated more favorably than G5 teams.

Who else has such a minor-league setup anywhere else among the Top 25 in softball.

If there is a choice to travel to play a contender, and literally EVERY other team has acceptable facilities that provide at least the minimal protection for the athletes, I surmise most would call the others first.

Pad the fence OR lay down a track in front of your brick and plywood.

Only a matter of time before a disaster hits there

I know you Cajuns are buried in your bunker against any criticism and play that red-haired-stepchild role to the hilt, but, seriously, be the adult in the room and clean that up. Doesn't cost THAT much. Grab some $$ from baseball.

Likewise, apparently the mudbuggers are willing to react to something like that instead of being proactive and trimming some money from their baseball team

For me, in terms of softball injuries, this is second only to seeing Tori Finucane drop at UCLA.
