    For arguably the biggest game Tech football has played in several years---with a legit shot at the conference title ON THE LINE....we have NO TV coverage.

    Don't care about the excuse. Don't want to hear the whining about ESPN, conference ties, blah blah blah.

    This is an abject failure on the part of our athletic department. End of transmission. No excuse.

    3 PM on Saturday, no LSU to compete with for viewers, a title on the line, and the best we can hope for is internet streaming. We will NEVER be anything but second tier if our AD and his team and our purported leadership can't do any better than this.

    Forgivable, yes. Excusable, never. We as fans are owed an apology.

    On the upside, thank goodness for Dave Nitz, but we can and must do better if we ever want to move out of the status of bush league.

    I agree. It's stuff like this that makes it very tough for LA Tech to build a fan base.

    Nope, it's not our fault. It's the WAC and Karl Benson.

    Of course, our AD, Pres, et al, don't HAVE this problem. They're OUT THERE. Standing by for an apology.

    So is it Nevada's AD/Pres fault not having this game on TV too?

    Just exactly what would you do??? After checking your profile, I have no wonder why you don't want anyone to know who you are.

    We are NOT bush league and I almost gave you red for starting a thread with a title like this. We are playing for the conference championship. YOU are bush league for being a cry baby about this. Shut up and watch it online and quit whining. GO DAWGS.

    I agree. I'm in New Orleans. I have 6 Tech people that I'm getting together with today, and would love to watch the game. Unfortunately, we can't.

    And who do you think hires, fires, administrates, and pays Karl Benson? This is a HUGE screwup for a conference that just can't afford any more screwups.

    Re: ...we are....bush league....we are.....bush league....we are....bush league....

    There are any number of things that might be TRIED....but what do we know about whether or not anything WAS tried? How about get a facility in, say, Shreveport, Monroe, etc, and stream the game in for folks who WANT to watch? What about communication in the media FROM our AD telling us "sorry this happened." What some SOMETHING, other than us flailing around, trying to figure it out. This is PRECISELY why we stay where we are and precisely why we don't advance in terms of cheeks in seats. I say again: 3PM, Saturday, no competition from the Evil Empire, and our options are huddle in front of our computer our listen to the radio, IF---IF----IF you happen to live somewhere in the radio nettwork area.

    No...our team is NOT bush league. Our athletes and coaches have done a whale of a job this year. SO, SO very proud of them and wishing we could watch them. Many of us would PAY to watch them. I'd pay GOOD money to watch them, but THAT option isn't even here.

    It's not our (few, but loyal) fans who are bush league. It certainly is not our players who are bush league. It is the administration of the athletic department that is bush league. The WAC has dropped this ball, too.

    If you want to red dot me, red line me, kick me out, or whatever, please do. It's that whole free speech thing that gets under folks' skin.

    It's the damn thread title and the fact this is the SECOND thread YOU have started on this topic that gets under my skin. Get your self to the Dawg House and watch the game and hush.
