    Yea, even though I'm not happy at all about it, this is the kind of problem that is a good problem to have because it signals that we're getting to where we want to be. The next step, of course, is to be the kind of program that forces everyone else to move games. But this is our foot in the door.

    It might be good national exposure but it is going to give the Shreveport casual fan another excuse to not drive over and see a good football game/team in their own back yard. Good that we're getting the exposure but probably not going to help put butts in the seats.

    A few weeks ago we were complaining about the HS games scheduled at Independence Stadium on that Saturday...no excuse with that now.

    I am okay with this.. Yeah it hurts my tailgating a little but it is much better than what I was originally told was happening. A friend of mine read the announcement wrong and told me that not only was the game being moved to Thursday night but it was also being moved to Irving Texas!!

    Not sure who or whom was complaining but, this is a "great opportunity" for us to have our name & game out there nationally & show that we are better than the "new bigleast." I envision 10K students, several more people from Ruston (especially the HS & MS students), church groups & us die-hards making the game game. I know it sucks for our folks outside of the 200 mile radius or so. I still think that we will pull 20-25K for this game. And that is 18-23K more than Tulame would draw playing "at home in the Dome."

    Good Grief, GAMEDAY could show up and some on here would bitch about the traffic and lack of parking. ESPN wants to put us on National TV......enough said. This is a great thing for the exposure of La Tech. Now let's go kick Tulane's ARSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    fify. They barely bring anybody to Hattiesburg, only an hour and a half from New Orleans. We'll be lucky to get 50 fans of theirs to Ruston.


    But as for the game? I like it. National exposure and we'll for sure have a good crowd and good enviroment. Night time games are the best!

    So many of us complain about start times - 3 vs 6 vs 7 - and they don't realize that the big programs, likeTexas, often play at 11 AM to accommodate TV. Of course they would be sold out if they played at Sunday midnight.

    I'm griping about this! Not sure exactly what I'm griping about, just about "this" in general!

    But, I'll be there....

    Probably a good game for the "Red Out".
