    Cardinals Eye Southland Home Opener

    After two weeks on the road, the Lamar University football team is back in the Golden Triangle to face Nicholls in their Southland Conference home opener. The Cardinals return home looking to turn things around from a slow start to the 2017 campaign.

    The Cardinals enter the week in a three-way tie for eighth place in the Southland Conference standings, but just a win back of fifth place. Big Red returns to Provost Umphrey Stadium having lost two straight, but both losses have fallen in the hard luck category.

    The Cardinals were driving late down seven at Northwestern State only to have the drive end on an interception deep in Demon territory. LU started the game at Southeastern Louisiana forcing turnovers on the Lions' first two possessions, including the opening kickoff, but found themselves down 14-0 midway through the first quarter. In both situations, the Cardinals were left trying to dig themselves out of a hole late in the game.

    No worries...I just locked that one to keep everything here and figured you’d see this one. It kind of got lost amongst the other pinned threads.

    Re: **Nicholls State vs Lamar Game Thread**

    Nichols obviously played above their heads against TA&M but they are 2-2 including a close win last week again McNeese and gonna be hard to beat unless we can put together a solid 4 quarters of good football.

    We will be tailgating and bringing out the pull pork sliders and cold ones! It's going to be great football weather and hopefully we have a decent crowd. Go Cards!!!
    Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.

    Can't make the family tailgate today, but plan to attend the game after work. Looking forward to a well played game on both sides of the ball today by LU. Hopefully special teams has improved with adequate practice & film study. Go Big Red!!!

    Nicholls goes deep on the first play and get a questionable pass interference call. Follow that up with a good remainder of the possession drive to get a touchdown. Missed extra point, so Nicholls gets the early lead.

    Can't tell if it's poor scheme or poor execution, but it seems like on all of Nicholls long runs the Cards loose leverage on the edge as the outside defender gets caught and or forced into the middle. On at least one long run the linebackers failed to fill a large hole. When you only have three down linemen you LBs have to fill the gaps. On the bright side #49 Crosley looks like he will be good in the future. Only a Freshman.

    12:28 left in the first half and Nicholls gets their second touchdown following a deep pass that set them up first and goal at the one. Lamar corners continue to get beat on the deep passes. It's just whether the ball is caught or not.

    Pick six for Nicholls on a very poor decision by Colbert. There was a flag for holding on the Cards that was declined, but it looked like the Nicholls end was lined up in the neutral zone. No excuse in regards to Lamar's execution but these officials have missed several calls in that have gone in Nicholls favor.

    Lamar changes quarter back and the offense moves the ball on a quick drive ending with a half back pass for a touchdown to get on the board with 7:48 left in the first half. Now down 20 - 7

    Nicholls answers the Lamar touchdown with a solid drive resulting in a touchdown. I've seen enough at this point to say that the loss of leverage on the corner is poor execution by the Lamar defensive players. On the run plays the DBs are sucking into the middle instead of keeping in their lane to maintain the corner edge. LBs may be doing similar.

    Cowardly Schulz keeps players in the locker room. Apparently in this screwed up country it is ok to not let players go out for the anthem but it's not ok to make them go out, stand, and show some respect.

    Anyway, based on the first half score (I turned around, didn't go to the game, I need time to digest this cowardly move by Schulz) it looks like the players should have just stayed in there hiding for the whole game.

    I don't believe Schulz is keeping them in the locker room for anything to do with the things going on about the anthem. I personally have seen many games over the years where the teams didn't come out until after the anthem and never thought anything about it. Actually I could see staying in the locker room as a way to build up the excitement ahead of the kickoff. Typically the band plays the team onto the field and the crowd is raucous and then you take time out to have the anthem and quite often the excitement about the start of the game doesn't build back to the same level.
