Lafayette Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns
Louisiana Ragin 'Cajun Athletics is the place to find everything you need to prepare for matchday, from buying tickets, finding parking on match days to applying for tailgate tickets, everything is there. The site also offers fans the opportunity to experience the rich history of the sports program through sports - related documents and treasures that detail the history and mascots of the university. Athletic network provides a place to connect and connect with former athletes and fans of the university.
The Ragin'Cajuns Athletic Foundation works with supporters to raise the funds needed to improve all aspects of the organization of Lousiansport. Whether it is increasing the annual sports budget, securing funding for new facilities, helping to recruit the best coaches for the team, or promoting "Ragin 'Cajun Pride" around the world, the RCAF plays an important role in all aspects of athletics in Louisiana.
In athletics, softball, football and volleyball, the cajuns of Ragin 'compete in 16 sports, including basketball, baseball, soccer, volleyball and football for men, women and men.
Louisiana advanced to the first game of the Sun Belt Championship, where it lost to East Division champion Appalachian State. The softball team has been the most successful Ragin 'Cajun team in the past two years, winning the 2015-16 Sun Belt title and the 2016-17 Conference championship. After drawing with Arkansas State in the West Division, the Rarin Cajuns won the tiebreak and finished third overall, knocking out No. They finished third overall in the state of South Dakota before dropping out of the Super Regions.
The Cajuns scored at least 27 points in every game except one, and finished second - the highest scoring average in the Sun Belt Conference (27.5 points per game). They were the only team with a percentage of all time - runs over five yards, with an average of 5.1 percent.
If they can replace Nunez as quarterback, the offensive line around Ragin 'Cajun will be explosive, led by the return of the team's two leading receivers - junior wide receiver De'Vante Harris and senior tight end Jordan Williams. Both Suns Belt selections also returned from a season off, and the Cajuns completed the opposing pass game in the second half of every game last season, averaging 3.5 points per game. Though they finished second and third - and - long, they erased those drives by returning eight of their 11-man rotation, powered by a trio of high-profile freshmen who have come to campus this season.
Several people, including myself, have been longing for Coach Napier to take over the Missouri program at the end of 2019, and I have certainly been pleased with what the coach has achieved in his first year at Lafayette. Hudspeth made the leap into a Power 5 football program because he loves Lafayette, but Napiers is a hot commodity with the ability to lead his team into the G5 ranks.
Prior to his time with the Ragin 'Cajuns, Napier coached at the University of Texas at Austin, Texas A & M, and was head coach of the San Diego State Spartans. I'll throw out another name, but I'm also a big fan of Coach Hudspeth, having coached the SEC the last two seasons.
Coach Hud showed that Lafayette school could actually field a competent, fun team that could compete in the Sun Belt and make any P5 program hell. Louisiana has made six bowl games in the last eight seasons, including the New Orleans Bowl, where it lost 41-24 to Tulane. Coach Hud couldn't sustain that momentum, but the Cajuns had a shot at a P5 program at Mississippi State last year, and broke in - a new one. He led the team to a 10-2 record and the chance to win the New Orleans Bowl in his first year as head coach.
Ron Gomez has been playing - by the way - radio plays for Cajun's football and basketball since 1961, when he was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives. After becoming president of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce in 1978, Gomez began campaigning for a stadium in 1982.
He took a sabbatical from McNeese State to coach the offensive line after meeting with Coach Napier at Arizona State. He was hired at Alabama before eventually getting the job as an engineer, and then again at Texas A & M.
We're trying to improve our recruitment profile and we've played for the Sun Belt Championship for the last two years. If this positive trend continues this fall, the Cajuns will finish with a winning record and a challenge for the Sun Belt, and likely finish in the top three of the conference standings.
Before the game kicks off, you probably ask yourself a very important question: What the hell is Louisiana Lafayette? If Lafayette is not enough, you can see it in 1812, renamed "The Hub City" because of its proximity to New Orleans.
