    I agree with their predictions on the West champ! I saw someone had UTSA winning the west and I was scratching my head, they've played us close, but only one win (Holtz first year). Plus we have them at home at the end of the season.

    If you fail out at Tech, you can always go teach at lsu

    That prediction was from the USM media. USM's Gannett beat writer Munzly is a USM super fan who hates Tech. Consider the source. USM media never gives Tech any respect and likes to troll our fans.

    Imagine having a beat writer that actually liked your team. Guess thats not who we are.

    I'd rather have one that wasn't a fan, but is just interested with the team. I read articles by those that are obviously fans of the team they cover, and I find the clear favoritism in their writing annoying.

    True. ODU and USM beat writers are big fans so you don't get balanced reporting, and it's very annoying. Unbiased beats are better. The problem with our last beat writer is he looked down to Tech as he was a big LSU fan, and he often unnecessarily added negative slants and belittled our accomplishments and history. Then he and his boss got their feelings hurt and then chose to treat Tech as if we were an equal to Grambling.

    And THAT is the point to be made. Unbiased reporting is best. Very little of that left anywhere, much less in sports. We don't need a Tech fan, but we certainly don't need a lsu one.
