    Ragin' Cajuns NewsPapers: Enough with the troll-baiting headlines

    Buckley is the Reason We Lost

    Not really, but the timing for him to write an article with this stupid troll-baiting headline probably couldn't have been worse. I can't remember UL having such a horrible, unprofessional beat writer.

    How do the Cajuns really feel about being nationally ranked when LSU is not?
    Reaction to the reality was from the heart for members of a Group of Five team that’s spent decades living in the shadow of its big brother from the SEC.

    98% of the article is actually fine, but with just the title and that one sentence in the article, Tim Buckley's unprofessionalism just distracts from everything else. All just so he can try to troll for clicks and links (which I guess I'm giving into here).

    Newscopy links to everything UL.

    Newscopy didn't link to this headline.

    I did not read Tim's article. I just believe it is terrible "karma" to revel in another program's problems prior to a big game of your own.

    Anytime I've criticized a writer for the headline, I've been told they can only suggest headlines but ultimately they do not pick the headlines...not sure how true but I've heard it several times.

    I've heard the same.

    Unfortunately, there is a "negativity slanted" headline writer somewhere in the Advertiser organization.
