    If she ever orders in food there is a good chance I brought it to her.

    Glad to see I'm not the only Dawg down in Cajun Country!!! I would like to start up a Champs chapter down here, know any others that are interested?

    Re: Getting it started - TDF

    Howdy. I'm a Louisiana native and a '93 Tech grad, but I've been living in Texas since '94. In Austin the past 10 years. My family's still in northeast Louisiana, and I make it back fairly often. Have had season tickets in the Joe for the past 5 years, and I'm planning to renew this fall. Was at Legion Field in '92/'93 when the Deuce got loose, was there again for Stallworth's TD pass (and Shawn Alexander's kickoff return the next play that nearly gave me a heart attack), and suffered through the sunburn I got at the Penn State humiliation game. Have been to most of the "away" games that we've played in College Station over the past 10 years. Pulled for the Dawgs in B.R. in '03, but I'm not an LSU hater.

    Now that I've laid out my pedigree, here's why I'm posting today:

    For the past several years, I've been a VERY frequent visitor to this board, but I haven't been a poster. Just didn't want to get into the mix. (A while back, I was registered as "AustinDawg," but due to inactivity, that handle went to another poster.) Decided to jump into the on-line mix after reading in the Austin paper about Foles backing away from his commitment to Arizona State. Even though he's about to have (if he hasn't already had) a serious shoulder reconstruction, we ought to make a hard push to sign him. Having watched him play in the Austin area for a while, I can attest that he's a gamer who knows how to lead and to win. He'd be a talent boost to our QB lineup. If we could sign him, he'd be the best since L.M.

    My hunch tells me that it's going to be tough to beat Baylor in the race, but we surely ought to make a serious run at him.

    Good to be back.

    My name is Sam (as in Samantha); I graduated in 2001. I have a Doctorate from University of Central Arkansas. I moved back home to Louisiana to practice my field. I am blessed with a wonderful husband named Jody who is also a Tech grad. We are HUGE Tech lovers and bleed BLUE and RED. I was an Orientation Leader and a Student Recruiter for Tech among other things. I am proud to now be a member of the Bytes! Thank you for allowing me to join the forum.

    Re: Getting it started - TDF

    I briefly came on the site the other day but coudn't really say much due to things going on. I want to thank TechDawgFan for welcoming me into the community of what I think are the best and the brightest of Tech fans. This has been my key source of Tech info the past few years since there isn't much talk of anything of Tech in the media. We are overshadowed by that team up the bayou from my way down here in the New Orleans area. I have dove into a few subjects already on this forum that has been with me for quite a while and I felt really good to share this with people who really are Tech fans and who really give a hoot. For myself, I went to Tech when the Lady Techsters ruled the world. We screamed TIa!! Tia!!! in an always packed Memorial Gymnasium. RVs lined Tech Drive for as far as the eyes could see. At Tech I was in the play "Grease",my team took 2nd place in the student bowling league 1982, sang in the Singing Christmas Tree, escorted co-eds to their dorms during the graveyard shift of the Louisiana Tech Police Dept in the dead of winter, and rode the bus to Tech Farm to take a course in Ag Engineering (drafting/lettering). I had to skip Fall Quarter in 1981 because I was at Ft. Jackson,SC. for 5 months of active duty (U.S. Army basic-advanced training) for I had joined the Louisiana Army National Guard. I then came back to Tech, but my binging all over the State for drill and back for classes was a little too much. But I never stopped being a very fanatical fan of Tech. I made it to SGT. in my combat job of forward observer with the Washington Artillery in New Orleans, went to the desert in Fort Irwin, CA with my Unit for 3 weeks in 1985. In 1986, I left the Guard,married, and presently have 2 children, 16 yr daughter and a six year old son. I've been a football season ticket holder for the past 5 seasons and I have renewed them again for this season. I'm very excited about all the changes going on at Tech and things are going to be a lot better. I'll be in section EE with my son Sean and I hope to meet everyone and have a good time rooting for the dawgs!

    Well welcome to the dark side my friend. If TECH finds out who you are, they may double your season ticket prices for being associatied with us.... so watch yourself. :icon_wink:

    All jokes aside, glad to hear that you have been going to the Joe regularly. Please make sure to swing by the BBB tailgate area and introduce yourself.

    Hi everyone. My name is David and I have a Granddaughter that plays Lady Techster Softball and is a Sophomore this year.

    I have no problem driving 5 hours each way to watch the team play a double header. She, and the team, is worth it.

    My name is Don and I live in San Antonio. I have three children who all attend(ed) Tech. My oldest got his undergrad and masters from Tech and then went to med school in Shreveport. His wife got her undergrad and masters from Tech. My second son got his undergrad from Tech. His wife graduated from Tech and then went to Mississippi State for her masters (double bulldog). My daughter said when she started to Tech that she was going to major in socializing, which she pretty much has. She swears she will graduate next summer.

    I am recently remarried to an avid Tennessee Volunteer. She is a true G.R.I.T.S. and says that there are three religions in the south, Baptist, Methodist and Football.

    Re: Getting it started - TDF

    Ok. Here goes. First time back to BBB in a couple of years. Nice to see so many familiar user names from way back.

    My name is Ric Kimble and I live in Coppell, TX. I graduated from Tech in 1984. Been in Texas for a little over 10 years and tried convincing myself to follow the Big-12 teams that are so prominent over here. Tried and tried and tried. I even tried to support Div-II Midwestern State University (where my oldest daughter was a cheerleader) but, as a friend recently said "I graduated from La Tech and that is where my heart is." There is hope for my youngest daughter becoming a Techster! We stopped in Ruston on the way to visit relatives last Christmas. She loved the campus and makes me drive through anytime we over that way. We stopped by the campus the day after the Miss State game and she walked onto the field. Being a cheerleader herself she hauled off and did back handsprings across the end zone danced on the logo at midfield. The Nevada game was her first Tech game and she loved it.

    As for me, I am always frustrated with how the BCS schools and national media try to keep schools like Tech from succeeding. What I mean is how they treat every victory by mid-majors as if it were fluke and every BCS conf victory as proof positive of the bigger conferences' superiority. It is always interesting that when a BCS school wins the score does NOT matter; the game was never in question. However, the score is VITALLY important when a BCS team loses to a non-BCS team; the closer the score the more evidence that the "little guys" "got lucky". If you question what I am talking about just remember Boise State's win over OU a few short years ago. Flip that game around and have OU pulling that play to win and the story would be about how "big-time" teams find a way to win.

    Oh, well, gotta get off that soapbox.

    It's already feeling good to be back.

    Re: Getting it started - TDF

    My name is Trey and I am an alch........wait wrong meeting. My wife and I graduated from Tech in the early 1990's. She was Tech Homecoming queen and lost a bet and was forced to marry me!!! We have 4 kids and all are obnoxious Tech fans......no idea where they get it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am very vocal at games, typically sitting with very few people around me near the 20 yard line on the alumni side, toward the north endzone. I make no apologies for being vocal and smarter than all the refs!!! I came very close to "waterboy" hitting the back judge at the Nevada game....though that was likely the Wild Turkey talking. I am new to the BBB, though have been on it way too much since joining.

    When you click on a folder and go into that folder you will see all the thread titles on the latest page of that folder. At the top and bottom of the thread titles, there is a "button" that says "New Thread". Click that "button". I would suggest, since you're new, that you look around a bit first to be sure that the subject of the "new" thread that you want to post hasn't been discussed before. It'll save you alot of grief.
