    Does Tech's Gannett beat writer still cover Tech?

    He hasn't published any articles about Tech since Friday morning of last week (9/22 at 11:27 AM). We've kinda played an epic Tech football game a few days since then.

    I think he's a snowflake with issues.

    It's really hard to believe we're playing SEC teams and we still can't get covered in the local media.

    I think we can all agree we are not going to get a fair shake from the dying newspapers in Monroe and Shreveport.

    I picked up a copy of the Baton Rouge Advocate Sunday edition and they gave us only TWO short paragraphs with our game with South Carolina. That paper never gives us any coverage, they dwell on teams along and South of I-10 & I-12. The shortage of coverage is weak and basically none in the populated area (South 1/3 of state).

    The hate from Gannett is a result of our AD's lack of G.A.S for EllAyeTech.

    We know that anything that happens after 5 or 6 will get little or no coverage, but to be fair I have read several stories on Tech in Shreveport paper with another one in paper this morning. So no more fake news or exaggerating a situation that is bad enough.

    Really? You think our lack of coverage has been exaggerated? If it appears in The Times it was in TNS a day or two before. It is also very likely a condensed version of what was in TNS.

    He was too busy favoriting leftist tweets from his work account to write something about our game.

    No more fake news or exaggerating a situation that is bad enough?? What on earth are you talking about? There is nothing fake about it, no exaggeration whatsoever. What I posted is 100% fact.

    South Carolina's AP writer does not count cuz he isn't our beat writer. That gamer read as if the author watched a completely different game than I did, and he basically did because he's the South Carolina beat writer. Hence, why the gamer in Sunday's paper was all about South Carolina and not about Tech. Since Gannett Louisiana does not value Tech by sending our beat writer to cover Tech, they would serve their audience much better by publishing Tech's SID gamers instead of articles written by opposing beat writers. Even though The Times brought back Teddy's column after everybody got pissed when they cancelled him, they refuse to publish Teddy's "View from the radio booth" articles that he writes for them to publish for free. That's ridiculous.

    Our beat writer only writes 3 Tech articles per week. That's so few he can't even be considered "on the beat." Nothing published until FOUR DAYS after our games. That's a joke.

    And this isn't changing anytime soon with S.F. and R.L. running the sports dept. at Times. Lang recently covered a local golf tournament that no one has ever heard of except the parents of the participants while we went without coverage during camp (in addition to running all over the place seemingly blowing the budget on national stories we can read about, and do, other places). Everyone knows S.F. doesn't seem to give a rip about Tech.

    Why aren't we (or are we?) spending more money in radio? Seems to me most sports fans in S'port/Bossier get their info and entertainment by listening to three local sports shows: Fletch, Mintz, and the Marshall Bros. Flood their airwaves with Tech promos and sponsorships. NSU sponsors Fletch and it shows. They ALL promote and talk up their sponsors. Tech is mentioned a lot by Mintz which I really like to hear. We aren't going to get any more pub. with Times no matter how much we give them (and however much that is is being wasted) until there are staff changes at the top.
    Lots of ears tune-in while driving to work and home.

    Our AD does not really care. He is above trying to work things out with the idiot Scott Ferrell. Our AD is building a resume'. Maybe Louisville will relieve us of him. You can bet he sent his fake resume in today.
