Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns' head football coach Mark Hudspeth understands the importance of social media.

Hudspeth has challenged a  UL marketing class to help him get to 10,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter by the time of the Cajuns' first game, September 1 against Lamar.

Hudspeth does a good job of keeping fans fired up with photos and videos on the sites.

He's got a little over 3,000 followers right now, so he's got a ways to go.
