Tech looks good

Despite the score, I thought Louisiana Tech was impressive today much of the time. The Bulldogs went toe-to-toe with a returning national power in a way North Texas was not able to do in Austin. North Texas was never in the game; Tech was.

It was especially nice to see some local kids not only on the roster but starting for Tech. Weldon Brown from Bossier, Wes Day from Captain Shreve and Chad Beverage from Parkway/Airline were all on the field getting television exposure. Weldon had a nice kickoff return to open the game, showing he still has the running back moves he had at Bossier High.

It's odd to say it considering all the college football players picked out of Louisiana, but I think this area is even stronger than given credit for by recruiters. To me, there are players missed every year who can play Division I-A ball.

Good luck to the Bulldogs the rest of the year, and best of luck to the local kids there and elsewhere.

Has Tech football sunk this low? Now we're saying they looked good in a 49-10 loss to a Nebraska team that hasn't had an old-school Cornhusker season in 10 years.
I'm not saying Tech is horrible, but I don't think anything can be drawn from such a lopsided game. The stats were lopsided and the outcome was lopsided.
The true benchmark for Tech likely won't come until WAC play. Although it's a no-win situation against Nicholls in two weeks. Only bad things can happen. They are supposed to win convincingly. Not much good comes out of those games, just like Nebraska's win Saturday. I don't think the Big Red Nation is pounding their chests too hard, even though they won by 39.
