    I don't know why the hell bring up La Tech. I personally don't give a rat's backside about Tech. Only good thing about Ruston, it is a good place to take a dump between Jackson, MS and Texas when on I-20. Don't give them cred of any type on a UL site.

    Bottom line, UL basketball and the SBC just sucks. No, not a flamer, find my post under Don Allen to see how much I use to care if you have any doubts. We have not had a coach worth a flip since Bobby P. We had Marty the clown, Jessie and the thugs, Robert's lost adventure and I don't know what the heck Marlin is doing, other the regurgitating the same thing every year, "Well, we are young." Positive consistency is what has been lacking with the coaches we have had. One good year does not make a good coach. Pull it off a few years in a row. I don't see what the challenge is in the SBC, once a strong mid major that sometimes received multiple NCAA bids, now a play in game to the NCAA tournament joke.

    Somebody wake me up when UL basketball is relative again.

    The difference between our year and theirs is striking.
    Really? Was Tech in a bowl? No. They are having a better season in Men's basketball. This year. Period. There is no "striking difference".

    Tech doing work this year. Tech wasn't in a bowl b/c they turned it down. So don't act like they didn't get a bowl invite. Lets rank the top 2 money making sports, shall we. 2012 Tech football > UL football, 2012 Tech basketball > UL basketball. Jelly much?....I think so. True Ruston is in BFE but the athletic dept is putting in work unlike ULL's athletic dept. Its ran by a guy that wears a donkey ___ as a hat. Going back and listening to his interview for the UL/LSU game on DVR, he sounded like he lives in la-la land. Which by the way isn't surprising...most UL fans are in the same boat.

    Tech would have been in a bowl. If Davidson and their AD weren't idiots. Putting your football program and basketball program in the Top 25 in the same year is a huge deal. Plus, they are going to a new stronger regional conference, with USM, UAB, Rice, etc. While our conference is imploding.

    In football, Tech also beat two BCS schools, while taking a very good A&M team to the wire on national television. Our national television games . . . not so impressive. I actually don't worry about Tech that much, but I can look at their accomplishments this year and say their sports year was much much better than ours. I think they've benefited greatly from smart scheduling, but no one will remember the schedules they played. Look at their BCS opponents in football next year, and see who is setting themselves up for more BCS wins next year.

    Obviously, Louisiana Tech's basketball program has never recovered from many, many years of all of that extensive, program killing, WAC travel.

    Was last year, and the tourney has not been played to see. MTSU should not count their chickens yet. My point is this never should of happened to the SBC.

    I agree it never should have happened. But in reality, the downfall of the SBC = the downfall of the Cajuns and Western Kentucky.

    Clearly the reason for the post was to alert some with their heads in the sand how well we could be, should be doing instead of what is actually happening. Nobody gives a rats a $$ about LTU, it is just a way to contrast how much we suck and have zero relevance compared to a school with similar circumstances.

    I think in Tech's situation it might have more to do with having a good head coach in Mike White

    He is also young and more in touch with today's athlete. Similar to HUD in that aspect.

    Ditto. The only difference I see is UL's circumsatances should be much better now & forever more than Rustbelt's all the way around.

    Oh man, my dream scenario would be for them to finish the season by losing in their conference title game, not making the cut for the NCAA tournament, and then turning down the NIT because it was beneath them. It seems like something their athletic department would do too.

    Duh, I think that is a given.

    While a bad coach can win with talent, there are two things you never see from a bad coach.

    1) Turn a season around at the mid-way point.
    2) Win in their sophomore year.

    There are a 1000 things that can lead to a bad season but those are two things you never see from a bad coach. You have a good head coach in Mike White.

    How i'm trolling this thread? Maybe the UL and LSU thread but thats about it. Every point i made in my original post is valid. Football rankings and record, point Tech. Basketball rankings and record, Tech again. These are the two money sports that put your school on the map.La Tech is doing work _____. Maybe UL should take a few notes from Tech b/c they are doing more with less, in a ____ hole town and very little fan support.

    Tech took a chance on the WAC and it payed dividends in the end. They were very aggressive and proactive in bettering themselves and selling their university. If I remember correctly we both agreed with the Tech move and wanted UL to follow them into the WAC. This went against popular opinion. Sometimes you got take chances in life. We seem content to just keep the status quo.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Yep, that pretty much sums up our situation.
