    Yep, starts of trashing the state of the program when he arrived.....which was not good and then says it got better thanks largely to him (which is true). I don't think he needs to be quite as harsh as he is, but it's mostly accurate besides the coaching graveyard comment.

And if Bicknell had the types of schdules we have today, or that Dooley had for that matter, he would have eventually gotten the BC job.

    So it was actually one of the best jobs in what is now the G5. Facility issues and all.
    Bicknell was no great coach, but if he had the schedules that we have had more recently I have no doubt he would have gone on to bigger things. His schedules were brutal and he still managed to make some noise every once in a while. Swap a sure loss for a winnable game for most of his seasons and he would have been to a few more bowl games and looked quite a bit better.

    Remember Dooley's remark that at Tech he had the best AD -- himself.

    He moved and shook early on. He coached a great game against lsu. His attitude toward the fans took a 180 from his first 6 months to his last year. He went form engaging and hustling to ignoring the small people. I suppose that is better than the guy we have now who started out ignoring most everyone, then learned who to ignore by getting close to only a few of the money people.

    FWIW, Dooly was the first coach to screw with the helmets (stripe) and who gave us the stupid logos and puppy dog. His branding ideas were HORRIBLE.

    Re: Dooley trashes Tech, again.

    Obviously he has a huge ego, but his Powerpoint presentation that he brought to Tech and Tails some years back, explaining why we needed to start LTAC, and the goal of membership in C-USA did it for me. I've been on board as a contributor ever since.

    You continue to be my favorite poster -- never read a post from you that was not well thought out -- the 10 years before Dooley we signed 1 3 star player-- Dooley preached dorms, facilities etc and the signing of 3 star athletes took off. A fund raiser to get a big screen TV at stadium headed up by a group of alum was shot down (Dan N) raised the money and when he could not get approval he moved his personal $$ to LSU (not sure I can trust the person who told me) Dan was once our co-announcer with Dave . Dooley was a mediocre coach but a solid AD.
    Thanks for your counter post ....

    I agree 100% about Jack and defy any unbiased poster to look at the schedule Bicknel had-- basically beat the teams he should beat and occasionally beat the "big boys"-- been posting this for years--

    I was there and I still remember the powerpoint showing Tech rooms and the S Miss dorms-- powerfull -- amazing that he focused on the disadvantage we had in recruiting-- woke me up about how broke we were-- like you I went to another level of support ... Tech and Tails off to great start after that

    D65: This is just another quote Dooley gave the St. Louis paper they ran in another story. This was straight from Dooley.

    Does anybody even listen to what Precious says anymore after this babble? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0asvA-xIAzE

    The Dallas Cowboys receivers certainly had no respect for him.

    Re: Dooley trashes Tech, again.

    Dooley has always been full of himself, but what attorney isn't? He did, however, get some good things accomplished during his three years at Tech. For starters, he taught us that washing our stadium from time to time might be a good idea, and that perhaps we should match the colors of blue paint on all parts of the stadium. We had allowed athletics to go so far down under Dr Dan that we needed a total outsider to show us just how bad a level our program had sunk to. He set up some basic program fundamentals that we've been able to steadily build on. I give him credit for that.

    Me too. It was tough medicine for LA Tech's leadership to swallow, but we're MUCH better for it.

    I remember some of his observations of things that now seem so patently obvious, like power-washing the stadium, and the consistent blue paint. Asking an assistant where we got our bulldog symbols, and was told they would just go pull something off the internet. Why were we paying for uniforms when Nike or Adidas would supply them at no cost. And creating the LaTech logo, and the new bulldog, and trade-marking both.

    Turned out to be a bad thing. It was never a LaTech logo, it was LATECH which our people converted to LATech. The puppy dog was horrible from day one and they found it on the internet. Trademarks mean nothing.

    Opinions being presented as facts. The LATECH logo is fine, as is the bulldog. The only place the bulldog does not belong at all is on the helmet.

    Your opinion being stated as fact above.

    If you took a poll, the bulldog would fail.

    LATECH is fine, but our people don't use that. They use LATech 98% of the time.
