Tech coach misses practice

Look for Louisiana Tech football coach to catch some flak for missing Tuesday's practice to attend a speaking engagement in Monroe.

While we appreciate Bicknell's diligence in speaking to just about any group that will have him, he may be the only Division 1-A coach in the nation who would miss the second practice of the season for anything other than a birth or death in the family.

The Bulldogs have a young team with a lot of new faces that require a lot of evaluation before the 2006 season kicks off on Sept. 2. You'd think that if the engagement was important enough to attend, that practice would have been moved to an earlier time to allow the head coach to be there.

We just hope that anyone else who wants Bicknell to speak picks a time when it won't interfere with practice.
