Louisiana went 2-1 in the last three games with four tough games in a row coming up this week and next. It will be interesting to see how we fare. Texas State always worry me and depending which UTA team shows up at the Cajun Dome we could get our first L at home this year.

The Cajuns are presently 51 in RPI. That is getting close to at-large consideration

Troy/USA at Coastal/App could be huge for one of those teams if they go 2-0, especially with TxSt and GaSo's schedules.

The Cajuns have no chance at an at large.

Georgia State at Georgia Southern on Friday could be fun. But the Eagles have to play better than they have been the last few games.

I think if the Cajuns win their two home games this week, the regular season is pretty much over.

They are out of it. They'd need to get into the 30's to have a chance, and they'd have to take another loss in the league tournament to do it. We all know the selection committee isn't going to take a Sun Belt At large over a P5 at large with a worse RPI and record.

The 21 RPI of the Belt doesn’t help Louisiana either

Neither did their OOC schedule. Selection Committee probably isn't going to look too kindly at the Cajuns playing the entire state of Louisiana outside of LSU and Tulane in OOC play.

That is a huge topic of conversation on Ragin pagin. Our scheduling has been garbage under Marlin. With the main excuse being a) we don’t have money to buy better games, or b) no one better than what we scheduke is willing to do a home and Home.

I don’t agree with either. But our schedules suck and we generally don’t perform well against better teams. We compete really well with teams who are on par with us though.

The Men (and Women) of Troy are quietly putting together a nice little stretch run. Both are eerily similar to last year that ended with conference titles for both programs.
