    Empty Bleat…maybe this will refresh their memories and bring about a little decorum.

    “Louisiana-Monroe, on the other hand, is the typical poor team that you would expect from the Sisters of the Poor. You don’t want to say anything particularly bad about an opponent, but the harsh truth is that Louisiana-Monroe isn’t very good, and they haven’t been very good in a long time.”

  2. Just to follow up on the Tre Smith note: His TiCats got beat in that game, and he unfortunately turned over the ball on a punt, but Prechae Rodriguez had a nice night.
