    Its disappointing and frustrating

    The Baton Rouge Advocate combined with its affiliate in New Orleans covers two thirds or more of the population in Louisiana yet wont even print a La Tech score unless it involves a Sunbelt or state school south of Alexandria. It seems that La Tech doesnt even exist and to me that is a big hurdle.

    Stop reading newspapers on line or otherwise…horrible source for what they actually report.

    It's been that way for sports other than football for a little more than a decade.

    It's also been that way for about a decade for the TV stations in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. No coverage outside of football for McNeese, NSU, Tech, and ULM. And they barely cover football for those schools. It went from state coverage to coverage of southeast Louisiana plus the Acadiana area, as the Advocate has an Acadiana edition (and has since the 70s).

    It all started with the resurgence of Nichols, SLU, and to some extent UNO. That led to more coverage for those schools. There is also more coverage for the NAIA schools like Loyola, Xavier, and Dillard. Finally, the prep coverage by the TVs is as good or better than its ever been.

    No one that I know in Baton Rouge is still reading the Advocate. It's turned into nothing more than a commie propaganda rag.

    I'm guilty. I read Obits on line when I feel the need (to see if I'm still alive)

    My gripe is far more about the radio media. Its split about 80/20 LSU and Saints with no time left for anything else. I wish north Louisiana sports radio would buy into their local programs half as much as br media buys into LSU.

    Some donors should bankroll some media programs in North Louisiana just for Tech and maybe a bit of other teams like Grambling, ULM, and Northwestern.

    Re: Its disappointing and frustrating

    Iím just not sure how many Tech consumers there are out there.

    On a tangent, I love following university sports accounts on Twitter. The interaction on Twitter surrounding Tech athletics seems much more quiet than other schools. Iím frequently tempted to stir it up on USM Twitter but canít as we live in Hattiesburg and canít run the risk of pissing folks off.

    I like the title of this thread.

    I'm disappinted and frustrated with my last visit to Sam's. Lots of elessewe, grumbling, and nlulm junk. Zero Tech.

    I've said before and I'll say again our licensing department is tight as Dick's Hatband . . . or we got some store buyers who are effing clueless when they go to market.

    The licensing department should have our bright marketing students conduct that survey on disposal income of Tech graduates in the state of Louisiana (compared to the above named institutions), and shove it down some store managers throats. At WM Academy the above three have all kinds of gear beginning in October of the fourthquarter and by Black Friday the Tech gear inventory has dwindled.

    Disappointing.
    Frustrating.

    Re: Its disappointing and frustrating

    It pains me to write this but it's the truth. Approximately 8 years ago I spoke with someone that made custom items they sold online. Very high end/quality. I asked them why, as a Louisiana Tech graduate, don't they have any Louisiana Tech branded/designed items... They had many other major schools from the SEC and other notable conferences. Their response, "It's the craziest thing, of all the schools Louisiana Tech has been the most difficult to obtain rights. Why they don't want their brand out there like the other schools is beyond me. Getting the licensing for the big schools was so much easier than Louisiana Tech, which I hope to obtain in the next several months."

    It's kinda sorta like shot glasses (empty ) a couple of years ago . . . Tech said they would never brand license anything alcohol-related. WHO is making this call?

    Whoever it is needs some 20th century business training. Victorian Era business practices and decisions haven't worked in a long, long time.
