    Herald-Dispatch: Tech ‘Definite Player’ for C-USA Title

    Huntington, WV, sports writer Grant Traylor includes Louisiana Tech as a top-three contender for the C-USA football title this year.

    Saying that the offense must “produce at a better clip” over last season, it is “a major player” but has one of “Conference USA's toughest schedules.”

    Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I was pointing out the part where he said the offense would have to produce at a better clip. Don’t like our chances of that.

    Hoping for 7-5...will take a lot of luck and some help...and another bowl game, baby! And I am so looking forward to this year's bowl. It will be a day of great celebration!

    Re: Herald-Dispatch: Tech ‘Definite Player’ for C-USA Title

    I have read so many articles questioning if Willie Baker will be able to produce this year. They all seem to believe Baker and Ferguson played together, and Baker's productivity was because Ferguson was getting all of the attention.

    It seemed to me that Baker was Ferguson's substitute. I can't remember a single time that Baker and Ferguson seemed to be rushing the quarterback together. Baker got his work in while Ferguson was taking a breather.

    Am I wrong?

    96, you are absolutely right. Baker was in on plays when Jaylon was not. He was more than an adequate sub. He may not have the numbers Ferguson had, but he will cause problems for every OL he lines up against.

    Unless we have a different QB, the only thing we are “definitely” contending for is a 7-5 record + a bowl game.

    Most folks have been predicting we'd challenge for the title the past few years...we haven't. Maybe being picked 4th in the West will be a little good JuJu.

    So I'm choosing to be optimistic going into this season. We've had QBs in the past who took until their senior year to really perform well. I'm hoping J'mar will do the same.

    We've lulled the competition into sleepy complacency and now we're gonna hit with a surprise attack just like the German's at Pearl Harbor!

    Ditto!

    I'm predicting we will be 8-4 to 9-3 with a win in our bowl game for a 9-10 win season.

    You realize that Holtz hasn't had a double digit win season since 1998? 21 Years (I was still at Tech when Holtz last won 10 games.)
