LSU leads series 22-0 with the overall score total of 1038-25. The only thing that I get butthurt over is having to drive through Lafghanistan on Interstate 10 on my way to Baton Rouge... Geaux SLI Bulldogs!! Lol... still enjoying the humor. Life is too stressful to be bitter... have fun, be happy.


Wow, the football scenario between us and LSU is like comparing LSU against Alabama. We are just not good enough to win, same with LSU when they play Bama, Just not good enough. [biggrin]

But softball, seriously you typed that crap, Cajuns have won 5 out of the last 6 I believe, and I know have not lost at the new Tiger Park. Hell, they play every southland team in the state home and home, because they know they can't lose, but won't play the Cajuns home & home. That my friend is whats wrong in this state, politics in everything especially in good ole boy BATON ROUGE. #FIGHTING FOR LOUISIANA RAGIN CAJUNS B.R. POLITICS IN HOUSE

Well let's hope your Ragin Cajuns punch their ticket. Unless they have to get through the Gators to do so. Lol

I hate to say it, but this year will be a rebuilding year.I doubt we get to a super regional this year, we are a very young team, that will have to grow up, and they will have some bumps and lumps this year I believe, Next year they should be well seasoned with more veterans. 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.

Sounds like a fair and unbiased review of this year's Cajun program. They will still be a formittable opponent for their competition this spring.

You are a liar and a creature without character. Your family has my sympathy.

Don't bother responding. Your opinion has no value.

LSU and UL are kind of in the same boat this year. Both lost lots of power and both have returning pitchers. They are both in a "rebuilding" year. So far this year, UL has 34 home runs, LSU has 14. LSU pitching is chugging along, UL's top pitcher is struggling. Will be interesting to see how the rest of the season shake out.

I'm glad that you posted. Please send me the section of the law that says what the universities athletic department has to call itself. I've had trouble finding that portion. Thanks in advance.

ULL will have the same problem that TAMU does - neither has a pitching coach.  Pretty big roadblock to major success on the national level.

No doubt,  totally agree especially this year. But the power numbers are definitely with the Cajuns as in doubles and home runs. And lately, every time we have met, that's what has done them in.

Beth better get ready to meet again. If the Cajuns are not hosting a regional, they will most likely be in Baton Rouge.

Unless they get treated like Ole Miss last year... Then, College Station, Waco, Auburn, Tuscaloosa, Norman and Tallahassee would be in play

Digging deeper into UL's and LSU's "rebuilding" year up to this point.

Home Runs
UL 36 LSU 17  (UL second in the nation)

Home Runs per Game
UL 1.64 (#1 in Nation)  LSU .68 (95th)

Scoring
UL 8.45 runs per game (2nd in nation) LSU 6.80 (17th)

Slugging Percentage
UL .569 (7th)
LSU .505 (20th)

Batting Average
LSU .355 (8th)
UL .329 (24th)

ERA
LSU .179 (25th)
UL .190 (33rd)

As the rebuilding takes shape, UL lost four players who hit a total of 69 home runs last year.  This year they are #2 in the nation in home runs.  So, obvioulsy, new players with power have stepped up.
LSU lost power as well.  They hit 53 home runs last year and lost two players who contributed a total of 20.  They have not replaced the power, but the team has an excellent batting average.

LSU leads UL in era. 

So, for both teams who are considered to be having a rebuilding year, not too bad.

Are those ERAs wrong?  Because a .179 ERA should own all record books.

Sure it does.  Here are a few examples of schools that have branded themselves other than their official name.   The University of Louisiana at Monroe chose to brand themselves as ULM.  The Sun Belt Conference has issued a directive to all media on how its members are to be referenced.  How a university chooses to brand itself is up to the university as it is with all universities listed below.  No one seems to have a problem using the branded name of each of those listed below.  So, why do people object to Louisiana - University of Louisiana at Lafayette?  Use of LOUISIANA is legal and is our chosen athletic brand. 

Texas - University of Texas at Austin
Wisconsin - University of Wisconsin - Madison
Nebraska - University of Nebraska - Lincoln
North Carolina - University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
California - University of California - Berkeley
OR
Fresno State - Cal State - Fresno
VA Tech - Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State College
GA Tech - GA Institute of Technology
OR
Charlotte - University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Little Rock - University of Arkansas - Little Rock
Milwaukee - University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee

Sure didn't hear any comment from her/him about LSU not wanting to play UL in softball.............Especially when you can't miss the reason why................

LSU would much rather lose two to Auburn than one to UL...............

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

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?

Perhaps ULL's substandard playing facility?
