    Average Across the Board

    With the loss of our Softball Coach last year, do we currently have a coach in any sport that expects more than average?

    When I survey all Louisiana Tech sports, all I see are coaches that are okay being middle of the pack. Not the best. Not the worst. This is clearly a reflection of our AD. What happened to the push for excellence?

    I would rather be 0.500 than 0.000 but fighting for 1.000 and landing on 0.500 is acceptable.

    Fighting for 0.500 means you're more likely to land on 0.000.

    I agree with Blue Dawg...and revf is too young to remember the 1990s but should remember Bicknell
    I'm an asshole! What's your excuse?

    Sorry, I blocked Bicknell from memory. He was never here.

    It’s not just that. His teams were terrible and harder to watch than Holtz teams have ever been.

    Bicknell era was bad but if Holtz had the schedules we played back then coaching how he does now, it would be 10x worse. Fla State, USC, A&M, and evening an average Alabama in the same year. Then Penn State, Auburn and a good Miami in year two. We have seen Holtz approach to the P5 teams, throw in a WTF game against a weaker opponent each year, and holy hell we would be 3,4, or 5 games down out of the gate every year.

    At least in some of those years we competed or beat the P5 teams. Alabama, Michigan State, Ok State, took Auburn to OT, etc.

    I wouldn’t want those Bicknell years back, but those years our boys played some ridiculously difficult schedules

    Yeah and Bick coached in the MUCH TOUGHER WAC...not this embarrassment of a league CUSA is. If not for the MAC, CUSA would be the absolute worst FBS conference. And heck, the MAC out-performed us in the bowls games anyway. Not defending Bick, just keeping it real.
