    The question should be how do you prevent it? 18-24 year old kids are going to make poor decisions, that is predictable.

    It's "Da Man's fault" down in Baton Rouge and who listened to "Da Man" in Ruston. La Tech got to uppity, too close to being ranked and in a great Bowl game don't you know. JK...but I wouldn't doubt it.

    It's not like that hasn't happened.

    Let's say this was unpreventable (unlikely) and not malicious (almost certain).

    Why do these things continue to happen? I need not repeat the litany. The one thing they have in common is that they hurt Tech right as we're about to make a big step. They also could be explained by malice, incompetence, or simple random bad luck.

    So how do we prevent it?

    LA Tech continues to fail when its time to WIN. This is stuff that never happens. You know, kinda like turning the bowl bid down in 2012. Or, having 6 starting football players suspended only hours before the 2014 CUSA Championship game. Or, hiring a 23-yr old coach for the Lady Techsters. Or, losing 80 something yds on a bad snap against Mississippi State.

    We continue to find ways to fail.

    It's as if someone at LA Tech can't stand being normal. You just can't make this stupid stuff up.
    Yep, and it makes us keep a bottle of Excedrin close by!!

    Boy oh boy would that open a can of worms in today's soft society....The Ruston police, DA's office, campus police and Tech administration would all then be involved and you would most likely be arrested for HAZING and the program shut down.....

    I am not very sympathetic to the “they are just young kids” argument when it comes to players like a 5th year starting QB.

    You are CORRECT, of course.

    Some folks just don't get it, and never will get it. They are "willfully ignorant", just to be argumentative. They'll equate Miss St suspending a backup interior linemen due to "breaking team rules" (i.e, one guy got a DWI, another case got a cruelty to animals charge) in Week 1, to us losing a 5th Yr starting QB in Week 12, who was suspended for smoking Cannabis. And never mind that our guy is a team leader who has started about 40 consecutive games, and we're on the cusp of a CUSA title. Hardly comparable circumstances.

    ...again....another guy that just doesn't get it.
    - Offensive Linemen?
    - Ole Miss game
    - One of these OL (Austin Deculus) missed the Ole Miss game due to an INJURY
    - The other LSU OL (Saahdiq Charles) also missed 4 other games this season for various reasons
    - A 3rd OL, (backup Ed Ingram) missed the first 4 games of the season before being reinstated to the team.

    So, that's 3 LSU OL that missed the Ole Miss game, for various reasons. But absolutely NONE Of those LSU players had circumstances even remotely similar to what J'Mars and LA Tech's were. LSU certainly isn't dependent" on any of these guys the way LA Tech is Smith and Hardy.

    * So, nice try. But you know this makes you look like one of two things:
    1) Either you're a liar, or
    2) Or you're just very sloppy.

    * I'll give you the benefit of the doubt this time, and just assume you were being sloppy.
