I lived in Lafayette for a while back in the mid 2000's. I think a lot of the reason why they get their panties in wad is because Lafayette/Acadiana, to them, is a big deal. From what I got from living there it seemed like one of those places that you didn't drift away for too long if you were from ...

Well how about giving some credit to Clemson who was ranked higher before giving credit to louisiville?
Louisiville deserves a lot of credit for what they did tonight against one hell of a defense, but let's keep things in perspective. Clemson won a tight game with a defense playing out of their...

"If you can't beat them, join them" right LSU and Florida?

I have family in Lafayette, LA and they understand that Hudspeth will bolt if a decent job come available.

I met a UL recruiter at a wedding about a year ago. Hudspeth runs a well oiled machine in Lafayette. I've got all the respect in the world for the guy and his program. He took a dumpster fire team and turned them into a bowl winning team. I think he'd do really well in the SEC, given his background ...

It would definitely hurt Bama's recruiting. Even if it's only a year or two that Gruden could flash his super bowl ring around and sign kids, it would still set Bama back a year or two. They couldn't replace lost top talent in the south with spare parts from around the country. That's just my $.02....

Well, if that's the case then pull the trigger. I didn't know the full details of the buyout. The only thing I question is the timing, now. I'm sure a few people have already been approached. If it truly is 4-7.5 mil paid out over 3 years, then I guess nows the time to strike. I just hope for Auburn...
