    No, I was thinking out of the box. Do you see us with any other games with Elessewe on your list?

    I think you know why...

    1) Our AD would never attempt such a deal

    2) We are getting scraps from lsu and we would never recieve more scraps than what lsu considers other small schools like ulm. Actually is looks like the ulm goof ball out negotiated our goof ball by a bunch.

    You do seem to have grown just a tiny bit cynical lately.

    Re: Timing of LSU game

    I don't like playing LSU always on their terms. They and the rest of the state will consider us in the same category as Southeastern and the other locals they throw a crumb to. Even if we win we would just be Troy. Until they're ready for a home and home or even a two for one(which will be never) I say don't play them. I wouldn't even want to play them in Shreveport because the stands would be full of Wal Mart fans. Ignore them.

    To be fair, rebut something I've said instead of going democrat/sheeple on me and just piling on. You know I've given him cred for what he has done for Tech, but I refuse to act like his HORRIBLE moves are a good thing for LaTech.

    I would like to play lsu every year. And yes I believe beating them and the other SEC teams we get an opportunity to play each year would be better for Louisiana Tech in the long run than winning CUSA.

    I agree with playing them every year but not always in BR. They will never come to Ruston and probably not to Shreveport. They have that huge stadium and don't want to play any OOC games away from it -- not just us.

    Oh I dont disagree with any of your criticism.

    You've just gotten a little … grumpy, lately.

    The only reason they're "just" Troy is because they won against a first year coach. It says more when you beat them in their coach's subsequent years (if he's any good).

    Re: Timing of LSU game

    Unfortunately, LSU is the college football king of Louisiana according to most. They are big P5/SEC, and recognizable nationally. Here in Aggie/Longhorn land there are plenty of people clueless about Louisiana Tech and many of the other non-LSU state schools. I too often have to explain that we are NOT the Ragin Cajuns. I think that is even more the case the farther away from Louisiana you go.

    LSU could argue they have more to lose playing us every year. It's a weak argument because they pretty much play at least one other LA school every year. Sad truth is we are to to them what some would say ULM is to us. That being the case, they have to control to ensure that it stays that way.

    And that makes it important that you don't have a push-over as your AD.
