    The Gannett Louisiana mothership in Lafayette asked for volunteers to help shore up THEIR Lafayette coverage. Diaz accepted. Watson told me he turned them down.

    Let's see now on National Signing Day, Shreveport had 1.5 writers (Just can't count Roy Lang as a full . . .). Monroe had 1. and Lafayette had at least 2.

    Can you see the trend here? Northern Louisiana universities depending on Gannett for coverage must start figuring out alternatives to getting the word out.

    I like the Old Dominion model where they hired fulltime a highly respected sportswriter in the Norfolk market and he churns out ODU stories daily. His stories are picked up by the local media or read on the ODU websites.

    I like the idea & it makes sense to do to get our story in front of the public. But I don't see Tech/Tommy doing it.
