Bernard King got a taste of the "Ragin' Cajun" campus last weekend, tripping down to the University of Southwestern Louisiana, in Lafayette, Louisianna. They prefer to go by "USL" as this press release from the sports information department indicates..."We're not Southwest Louisiana...or Southwestern Louisiana State...or Southwestern University (which is in Georgetown, Texas)... or Southern Louisiana, or even the dreaded "SW Louisiana." The folks who know us call us USL, and if you do, you'll always be correct and you'll let people know that you're knowledgable about the university at the same time." See, you learn something important here everyday. So next year when you fill out your NCAA tournament bracket and write in SW Louisiana, you can't say we didn't warn you. Geaux Cajuns!
Let's play "Name That Recruit"! Below is a link to a picture of the bench area from Friday's Mackey Magic. Now, the area we are looking at is the row directly behind the players. You will see a big pink blotch indicating the row we are talking about. Directly to the left of the pink blotch is Austin Parkinson. To his left is Ricky Wright (no sleeves). To Wright's left is Kenny Lowe, and to Kenny's left is the mystery recruit (in a greyish shirt). Anyone with a guess, feel free to email me at email@example.com . For a look at the photo, click here. The winner gets to smack Brad Jewell around for taking such a bad picture in the first place.
Just kidding, Brad.
