There's always some baggage that comes with this guy.  There was something odd when he was here at SLU then suddenly left. I just don't recall what it was.

It had something to do with money being paid to the players.

^^^?!?!?!.......uhhh, forgive me, but who in the hell is paying money for guys to ball at Austin Peay?

Don’t wish to offend anybody reading my words who may be alums or have ties to Peay (pronounced “pee”), but it is just your average, garden-variety, regional state university. It’s located in Clarksville, TN, about a 40 minutes drive NW of Nashville. Been in Clarksville a bunch of times on business, and have driven around that yard a bunch of times.

They used to be the “dumping ground” for OVC football, but have come on strong the last ten years or so. A lot of black kids from the Nashville area matriculate there, including a few from my church, so maybe those numbers have attracted some skilled negro ballers to enroll there as well.

But “paying” mofos to ball there?.........WOW!!  :o

This happened when he was a Lousiana Lafayette. Wikipedia is the source.
Louisiana–Lafayette
On December 13, 2010, Hudspeth was named the 26th head football coach at Louisiana–Lafayette.[2] In his first season in 2011, he led a team that finished 3–9 the year before to a 9–4 record and an appearance in the New Orleans Bowl – their first bowl berth since 1970.[7]

He added three more 9–4 seasons under his belt, playing in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl defeating East Carolina in 2012, Tulane in 2013 and Nevada in 2014.[7] However, the NCAA forced Hudspeth to vacate 22 wins from 2011 to 2014, including the 2011 and 2013 New Orleans Bowls and 2013 Sun Belt Conference co-championship, due to NCAA violations involving academic fraud and payments to players by an assistant coach.[9] The Cajuns relieved Hudspeth of his head coaching duties after the conclusion of the 2017 season.[9]

So, he can pay players and not get a show cause but Bozeman got canned for far less.
