First time I remember Tech being in the Top 25 in football and basketball in the same year.

No chance at all. Tech averaged 4k less paid attendance than LSU, but do not know actual for a straight comparison.
Well, we aren't talking avgs. LSU most likely wouldn't get 7k into PMAC. La Tech had over 5k for Texas-Arlington. I would imagine they would pull more than that for LSU.

yay for Tech, but they better win that WAC tourney are they will probably be in the NIT. That RPI is too damn low for an at-large, especially when the NCAA has left out mid-majors with a lot higher RPIs.

I was at Tech when Karl Malone played and we went to the Sweet Sixteen in Dallas, only to lose on a last-second shot from Wayman Tisdale. damn it.

One game at a time. Got Utah St. next at home. Then close out the season at New Mexico St. and Denver. Those three games will be tough. If Tech wins out and loses the championship game then I think they will still get an invite to the Dance. But they got along way to go before that. It will be damn hard to just win the last four games.

I was to young to remember that game. I've been told about how that last shot by Tisdale seemed to just circle around the rim an eternity before going in. Talk about heartbreak. Wayman passed away a few years ago. RIP Wayman Tisdale.

ESPN writer calls out those who voted for LATech

quote:

But it's ridiculous for Louisiana Tech to be in the poll over teams such as Colorado State, Connecticut, Wichita State, North Carolina and UNLV.

The Bulldogs' inclusion validates the main criticism of the AP weekly rankings: Voters are lazy. Instead of watching games or, at the very least, doing research, they're voting for teams based on record and record alone. It shouldn't always be about how many games you win. It should be about whom you play -- and whom you beat. Sorry to be a party-pooper, but Louisiana Tech is not one of the top 25 teams in college basketball.

Did you get a refund on those Orange Bowl tickets?



Hint: when the NCAA calls for invite...don't tell 'em your holding out for the NIT

You do understand that joke doesn't make any sense right?

The other ones make sense, but are extremely worn out. Your joke doesn't even make sense.

I mean, there's no way they are a top 25 team in the country, but they are next in line so the voters just slide them in.

Agreed. The whole Bowl Game thing was old 2 months ago.

If you keep using it as a joke or as a way to "make fun" of Tech, then it just shows you're lazy.

And for those who only post on Tech threads to say "Zero f**ks given".... Why the hell are you posting anything if you don't give at least a few f**ks? If you truly gave no f**ks, you would shut your non-f**k-giving arse up.

True! It takes more effort to post you "don't give a frick," then to just not post anything at all because you really don't give a frick.

re: LA Tech falls to New Mexico State


At least Tech angered an ESPN writer enough to call them out. Whether or not they belong doesn't matter to me - I'm glad they're doing well and trying to get the program steady. The women's team should still be a powerhouse had admin not fricked that up.

The Tech jokes are still humorous to me - whether it's bowl invite related or 'don't give a frick'. Why is it funny? Because it's Louisiana Tech; had it been any other school, it wouldn't be as funny. Tech brings it on themselves.
