    Question for future game?

    I don't know if the 2 teams playing on Saturday will ever play again. If they do and you guys are the host why not play in Shreveport? Historically it has been where you have had your largest crowds. Cajun fans have shown they will travel where the hotels can accommodate them and there are other attractions in the area. (See the many Tulane games in years past and NO bowl). I alone have spoken to at least 30 people who would be coming to Ruston but are not because they couldn't get a hotel room. I would imagine that several others have tried. IMO if this game was in Shreveport with all the casino hotels you'd have over 40k in attendance this weekend.

    I don't know what your deal is with Independence Stadium and if the cost to rent it would wash out the extra tickets sold?

    If those 30 "fans" are too damn lazy to drive the 60 miles from Shreveport/Bossier to see the game, they are not fans, and screw them. As fas as your cajun buddies traveling to see Tech and usl play in North La., I will believe it when I see it. Your snide remarks, Big Head/Clark Kent, have grown old, and I hope we beat the snot out of your ilk Saturday night. As far as another game, I hope it never happens.

    We will play in Shreveport again when the opponent is worthy. usl does not fit that bill.

    Didn't stop Southern fans. Also, Miss State even Hawaii brought a lot of people.

    Southern's fans figured it out. Maybe they're just more dedicated to their program.

    Can we make a rule on this board that you can't start a thread when you have red under your name?

    I fully understand how "other attractions" would be needed to motivate LA-LA fans to follow their team on the road.

    I didn't find those remarks to be snide and thought it was a legitimate question. I am not trying to put you down it's just a fact that Ruston doesn't have the hotels that S-port does. I have personally witnessed around 30k against Tulane every year when we played on a regular basis. As long as the game is played in Ruston you will probably never see large Cajun contingent. Most people I have talked to said if I have to drive an hour to Shreveport I just a soon drive home. Trust me you don't want a coonass driving that far after a day of tailgating.

    Correct me if I am wrong but isn't NWST the team you have played the most in S-port?

    As for this game or any in the future I don't live and die by this stuff if you beat us 100 - 0 and we never play again my Sunday and the rest of my life will not be affected one bit.

    I don't want any future games with the Cajuns in Shreveport or anywhere else. If Louisiana Tech goes back to Independence Stadium, I want it to be against a big-name opponent like Texas A&M or Mississippi State, not UL-Lafayette.

    As far as hotel rooms are concerned, I drove six hours round-trip to the game in Lafayette the day of the game to watch Louisiana Tech defeat Lafayette last year. I didn't need a hotel room or "other attractions in the area" in order to see my team play a football game. I don't buy the excuse of people not coming to the game tomorrow because they can't find a hotel room.

    Besides, if I can drive sixty miles one-way from Shreveport/Bossier City to attend a Bulldog home game in Ruston, then the thirty people you claim to have talked to should be able to come as well.

    You guys keep comparing to southern fans? Did southern fans really show up? Case in point when we played southern at Cajun field the crowd was 41K and change. Southern probably 13k to 15k of that. I honestly don't know what it was in Ruston? Close to that? Would you have had more in S-port. Not knocking just asking. I personally think looking at your media guide and crowds y'all should consider S-port a couple times a year. Like Alabama and Arkansas did in Birmingham and little rock for years.

    Yes we talk about SU, because this year, we have already played another in-state opponent (albeit FBS) that had to travel as far as you guys do. And yes, they did show up. And while I don't know the numbers, I strongly suspect that after tomorrow, they will have outnumbered FBS-level UL-Lafayette's fans by a long shot.

    I think ULL has to show they will show up before we start thinking about moving it to Shreveport. We've been playing for 100 years and the stats show the Cajuns don't show up. If we had to turn thousands of people away because we didn't have enough seating, then we would move it to Shreveport.
