As coach Mark Hudspeth crosses the mid-point of his debut season at the helm of UL’s Ragin’ Cajuns football team, he’s already created one of the most memorable seasons in history. Across Acadiana — and even among the national press — inquiring minds want to know: what’s happening at Cajun Field? How’d he do it? What type of leader is capable of such a remarkable turn-around so quickly?

hudspethThe Ind has invited coach Hud to answer those questions and more as part of our annual Lecture Series, which is sponsored each year by IberiaBank. The luncheon is slated for Tuesday, Nov. 15, at the Cajundome Convention Center at noon. That week is an open date for the Cajuns, and we thought it would be an ideal time to invite the coach to step away from the sidelines and share his winning ways. Lunch tickets are $40 per person or $350 for a reserved premium table for eight. Complimentary theatre style seating will be available for those who want to come for the speech only, but an rsvp is needed. For ticket info or theatre seating reservations, contact Robin Hebert by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
