Appreciate sports currently on the bayou

As someone who frequently talks about ULM athletics, I often get asked if we have a men’s soccer team. Hearing that question enough, I started wondering why ULM doesn’t have a men’s soccer program. After all, wouldn’t a Bayou Derby against Lafayette be fun?

So I sought out the one person I knew would have all the answers: Director of Athletics John Hartwell. After peeking behind the curtains of the world of college athletics, I realized that adding a sport can be a real hassle, and sometimes it’s better to root for the teams we have than to wish for teams we don’t.
