    Those student athletes probably voted NO on the student fee.

    Since WOKEsters are trying to move us to a unisex concept, things like this just help the transition go a little smoother. Get rid of the "Lady" term and the next generation won't think anything of it.

    Men are from Mars
    Women are from Venus
    All other genders are pulled from Uranus.

    Sure, make your brand "better" by changing from unique and national known Lady Techsters, which means Louisiana Tech and ONLY Louisiana Tech, and change to a nickname used by dozens of other colleges.

    Fire-able offense. Brands are successful when they are unique and have a national name. All college fans know Lady Techsters is Louisiana Tech. Epic fail.

    Literally, nothing ANY other previous AD has done can top this Epic Failure.

    Our AD will get hammered in any future Q & A sessions.

    Someone needs to request an FIA for the so called polling he SAYS he did.

    This AD, this Dr. Wood dude, is the absolute worst hire in Tech history. Makes hiring Larry Beightol as head football coach look like a genius move! Can't even refer to him as an "empty suit" as that's an insult to empty suits everywhere.

    Nope.

    Jerry Stovall. The dismissal of Paul Miller to hire the LSU HOF’er ensured that Tech’s momentum would be stunted, and the critical connections Miller had with other AD’s was lost.

    So true.

    This weeks failure, and all the other failures over the decades, were made possible by that one.

    I'm gonna stick to my assessment that Wood is the worst hire of all time. We know what happened during Stovall's tenure and the adverse effects afterwards, but all of that damage has long ago been absorbed and healed by time. We still don't know the extent of the damage being done by Wood. We do know the crap he's pulled and the failures so far and it's a ton of chit in a very short period of time. The biggest failure is our missing the train out of the failed CUSA station. Damage often takes time to fester and manifest itself. We shall see.

    I tend to agree. He may be out there drying off seats in the baseball stadium when we get a brief shower in the 4th inning, but I’m more interested in your forward thinking and deal making. Literally no one in the university admin has been any good at that since FJ Taylor other than Dooley. 36 years since we had someone who could simply get things done.

    You think Tech would be where they are now had they been a charter member of the Metro (later changed to CUSA) conference?

    Disagree about FJ being the only forward thinker, Paul Miller definitely was. I did some audit work for the Athletic Dept during the Miller and Stovall regimes, talked with each of them quite a bit. Miller was positioning Tech for the Metro, Stovall was an empty suit making sure Tech knew their place.
