The McNeese State Baseball team has been very streaky this year. They won their first four games then proceeded to lose four straight. Let's hope they started another winning streak yesterday in Lafayette.
If you had ask anyone before the season started if they would be happy with 4-1 in the first five games .... I think they all would have said yes. McNeese baseball lost their first game of the season yesterday to Louisiana Tech 12-2
With a lack of consistency In New Orleans, at LSU and McNeese; there has been little to cheer about during this year's football season. The same thing can not be said across the Sabine River where the Cardinals have had a great season and last night capped it off with a road victory over our Cowboys in Lake Charles.
Is it just me or is there a glaring similarity between the way the Cowboys and Tigers lost last night? A strong running game will win some ball games. A strong passing game will win some games; but you have to be able to do both to win a championship. Neither team was able to do that consistently last night.
It's nice to begin the season ranked high in the polls. It excites your players and fans; but it's much better to be ranked high at the end of the season. The McNeese Cowboys are experiencing a mid season rise through the Top Ten in both FCS polls
The McNeese State Cowboys first played the Rajun Cajuns football team back in 1951. The last time the two teams tangled the Pokes ruined UL's homecoming with a 18-17 road win. The Rivalry will renew in 2016.
