        Having dealt with Cajuns on a job, you really have to understand their culture and how they were raised. They will expect more of you than you can deliver, insult you if you don't deliver what they expect, and you will hate them because they come down on you hard if you fail. When Coach O said losing is not an option, he is NOT kidding. You will hate them. And then after work, they will invite you into their homes and treat you as one of their family. They will love you, feed you, respect you, and make you feel as though you are the most important person in the world.  And you will do the same back to them. It's the craziest thing I've ever experienced.

                                I keep hearing people comparing him to Farmer Fran from "The Waterboy." I can see it, but he reminds me more of Alan Autry.

                                      Yeah not a LSU fan, but this is a good likeable coach. People routed for LSU because of him. He has a toughness and confidence that inspires. I wish he was the coach of my Miami Hurricanes. Good for him, I'm happy for him.

The teams of the 90's would completely crush the teams of today. Clemson, had two personal fouls that looked like football to me. Nebraska of the 90's and their style of play would be outlawed today. Pansy football is today's era. It's garbage.
