    Just to be clear, the team's not folding. Per their own press release, operations are only being suspended for the 2016-2017 season to accommodate renovations at the Cajundome. Emphasis mine:

    The SPHL has 10 teams right now, so the league will be alright. And I'm sure the team will be back in 2017.

    Also, I think the renovations were made also with the Louisiana-Lafayette program also having to deal with some issues, though their basketball season wouldn't start until November.

    ULL will be able to play at home in December and the tail end of November. They're part of the reason that the Gators couldn't find dates.
