    I will repeat myself. Dan Reneau is a frickin idiot. Moron. TJE should have lived out his life in Ruston.

    Dan getting into the TECH athletic HOF at all, much less BEFORE Tommy Joe, is a travesty.

    So, it was DR's fault that Eagles left for the Auburn job? Why? Because Tech would not/could not match what AU was willing to pay?

    Eagles didn’t ask for a match. Wanted 25K more for the program (assistants and recruiting). DR didn’t even try. Immediate response was “Good luck in Auburn”.

    I'm certainly not trying to diminish this honor, but I honestly had never heard of the Louisiana Basketball Hall of Fame before this.

    We need to get TJE in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame.

    This is great news and I totally agree about D.R. not doing what it took to keep him with us!

    I was one of the half dozen Tech fans - in a crowd of 10,000 - at the Providence Civic Center when Coach Eagles and Randy White schooled Rick Pitino's Providence Friars in NIT action. Coach invited us back to celebrate with the team afterwards. You couldn't find a coach with more passion for his trade. Friars fans were aghast as White rained threes that night.

    The fact that Randy White is not in the LA Tech HOF is absurd. He was the classic "All World" college basketball player, and arguably an All-Time top 5 men's player for Tech. He also played on some good Tech teams. No, he didn't have much of an NBA career. But White was drafted #8 in the 1st round of the 1989 NBA draft by the Dallas Mavericks,. That alone tells you what kind of college player he was. White did play 5 full years in the NBA until his contract was not renewed by the Mavs. He went overseas after that.

    Thank you. Glad to hear that, Dwayne. IMO, the LA Tech HOF has a credibility issue as long as great athletes like Randy White are not in the hall. I might feel differently if he had left Tech only 10 or 12 years ago, but White left LA Tech almost 30 years ago. There's simply no excuse for this oversight.

    And Andy Russo too.

    Most successful coach in school MBB history. Who else led a team to a Top 10 finish in the final poll of the season? #7 I think it was.

    Tech has finished ranked that high in three sports: football when Division II, WBB, of course, and in 1985 MBB under Russo. That's rarified air.
