    I always enjoyed watching Byron Santiago, Barry Robertson, and Hamilton.

    I've listened to Ryckman's radio show in Lafayette from time to time and I've never sensed that he's a Tech hater. He's told several stories about his days at Tech and of some of the players he played with. Those stories have always been positive.

    How does Ryckman refer to UL-L on his show?

    If Billy Ryckman had stayed home and played for USL, he would have probably never played a down in the NFL.

    Most of the time I think he simply calls them the Cajuns, but I'm sure he calls them UL. He has to if he wants his show to succeed in Lafayette.

    He spoke about this very subject one day. He was asked by a caller how he ended up at Tech. Ryckman spoke of Mickey Slaughter and the pro type offense we were running at Tech. He talked about all the great receivers that he played alongside of at Tech and about how many of them went on to have NFL careers. He said USL's offense at the time was one where receivers went to disappear. All I'm saying is that overall, Ryckman is pretty positive when he speaks of Tech.

    No Duron?? As far as college qb's go, he was the most successful.
