Football: 'We don't want that whoopin' anymore'

Tim Buckley, The Advertiser, July 29, 2017

Over the last several months, multiple missteps have set the UL football program back.

The most-recent was the April arrests of 13 Ragin’ Cajuns for conspiracy to commit felony theft from a campus dorm room, a charge later reduced to criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, with the chance it will be dropped entirely after completion of intervention program requirements.

The incident occurred on the same day the alleged victim in the case, an ex-UL football player, was arrested on a charge of second-degree rape, which allegedly occurred while he was still a member of the program.

The 13 briefly were suspended, but rejoined the team in time for offseason workouts.

It’s possible one or more of them will be suspended for one game during the upcoming season, but none are expected to miss any more time than that.
