If all this mess at ULL goes sideways and Coach leaves does anyone think he resurfaces again in a bigger or better conference.
You cannot deny his hitting style and genius it has proven itself for a long time. He has convinced me that there is another way to swing the bat.
Thoughts?

Jargon vs established mechanics. It's all mental. Now he's a damn good motivator, but he didn't re-invent the wheel.

I dunno if anyone in a P5 is just gonna let him do his thing and carry 35-player rosters with impunity.

He's not leaving and that's likely a reason they feel so free to neglect his program.

He's likely right. I'm sure they could have moved in the past if he/they wanted to. I'd guess they are Cajuns first and softball coaches second.

To say he has not changed the laws of physics, biomechanics and or overcome the inherent limitations/challenges faced by a hitter is true. I think he did reinvent intent, approach, understanding and instruction with respect to softball.

The UL Ragin Cajun athletic hierarchy is prioritized in an unhealthy way.........They're more than capable of shooting themselves in-the-foot.............Need not look any further than the football program to verify that truth............It's way over-funded and way more than a mess...........i'll even say the football program is very troubling - from top-to-bottom....................

What Mark H said but also factoring in his health. I'd bet heavy money on the Cajuns' head coach then retired somewhere in SW La. as his career path from here on.

UL's football program is bad enough to be in the Southland.........Attendance has dwindled to embarrassment level...........Heck, the UL football would pollute the Southland.........

The players at ULL sent this letter to the administration in response to the now over month-long suspension of Coach Lotief.

Also, former player and assistant Coach Sarah Corbello was fired Monday.

Figured this wasn't going to end well.  Coach Lotief is a legend.

I guess more money for Hudspeth to spend on muscle supplements was needed.

Sounds like a few knowledgeable brave young ladies came forward and the school actually followed their policies. Maybe it will spread to some other programs. Winning at all cost can not be tolerated in college athletics.

It's a new era. Players no longer kiss coach's asses, coaches have to kiss player's asses. That being said, my Ragin Cajun friends all said Lotief thought he owned the town.

But wait ... are you saying that detailed, glowing letter may not have been written by the players and may not reflect the views of some of them (if not most of them)?

Hmm

The University stated "The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has terminated head softball coach Micheal Lotief"


This was an official release of the University, from the office of the President. One would think they know the name of their school.  Amirite?

The circumstances and the wording of the letter screams that this is a group of players who are bullied and intimidated. The Lotief cult

Michael is a truth-teller.........Some people don't like the truth..........

This is gonna get pushed further and the UL administration will have to answer some real tough questions.........The softball players are on Michael's side - and that is the truth..........

There are insinuations that the UL administration is out to destroy the softball program............That insinuation is coming from more than just one or two people..........

There's more to this story...........
