Well the LSU/USL game is fastly approaching. It is the opening game for the LSU Tigers this year and will of course be held at Tiger Stadium. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette(formally USL) which is located about a hour away from Baton Rouge is the opposing team. Lets just say there is no love lost between the two schools.

One of the best things Skip Bertman did in my opinion was having LA Tech and ULL play LSU in alternate years. LSU fans hate that as a genral rule but I think they are shortsighted. This is on the whole good for football in Louisiana as a whole. PLus, I am a Tech Fan also.

Anywho, if you have an interest in this game you might wish too bookmark this post. I shall be trying to keep track of all the amusing threads on different fan web sites that will be talking about the game. This will include LSU and ULL threads in all fairness. So enjoy the fun as I try to keep up with how fans from both schools bash each other. IF you have a thread or a forum I have missed just leave a comment or a email

Wow. How odd it is to see a cheerleading team of all white girls.

Not that there's anything wrong with it, but living in California makes you forget that everywhere else isn't the same.

We're actually UL Lafayette, or UL as we call ourselves in spite of LSU, as I explained to you on my blog.

Thanks for the links from both sides. I like how the LSU fans look down on UL so severely, and yet a lot of them concede that Lafayette is a much better place than Baton Rouge. I split much of my childhood between those two cities, and I have to agree.

As for the game: while I don't expect UL to beat LSU (or even lose by that small of a margin), the Tigers won't do themselves any favors by assuming that the Cajuns that they crushed in 2002 are going to take the field this week. Sorry to say, but the 2002 Cajuns were a pathetic shell of the team they are now.

This year's crop is a much better team--expected to win the Sun Belt Conference, in fact--and posted its best season in a decade in 2005.
