    Yes, it does get old. Last year was horrendous pre-game, but the Bulldog beatdown of the Cajuns has reduced the yap yap yap to just one - Big Head/Kent. Let them win just once and it will be horrible again. Who needs it? Unless they bring over 1,000 fans I don't think anyone can make a case that it's worth it.

    On another note: Is it possible that we play ULM@Lafayette to scratch the back of certain Cajun members of the UL Board of Supervisors?

    Are you sure? It is the LaMon homecoming game?

    I love that the LaTech football team uses up the best hotel in WM and nobody else can use it.

    As they did you by a large margin in Lafayette so what's your point? NWST is not known for traveling as well as SU but they brought more to Lafayette this year than you did last year.

    It's great that they showed up. According to espngo.com the attendance was 27,905. If SU showed up as you say then someone must have not shown up. 27,905 < 41k and change. Maybe my lack of hotel theory has some validity? Your only crowds near that number have been where?

    I am really not knocking you guys I honestly think Shreveport could have made you more dollars.

    There must have been plenty cancelations my mother called every hotel in Ruston and west Monroe 2 weeks ago and got one of the last at the quality inn. Not her first choice.

    Ask New Orleans what they think of Cajun fans showing up. Hotel rooms in that big city are well booked when the Cajuns come to town.

    Our dialogue with the Big 12 includes playing multiple games in Shreveport each year. With that extra conference money, we will play 7-8 home games and can better manage two venues and keep all our fans engaged. With the potential for light rail connecting Mississippi and Texas straight through LaTech territitory, it's a win-win-win.

    That's the first I hear of the light rail that would be great for N La.

    There are plenty of rooms available within 30 minutes of Ruston. Y'all didn't have 20K of your own fans in your own stadium last year. Why would have have more in S'Port? You are a lying sack of $hit.
