Tech needs to thrash Nicholls State
Sure, the Bulldogs had a bunch of new starters, especially on defense, but many of those players saw significant playing time last year. Apparently the No. 22 Cornhuskers were a lot better than the No. 23-ranked Fresno Bulldogs, who Tech beat last year in the season finale. Either that, or Tech has gotten a lot worse.
If the Bulldogs hope to have any fun this season, they'd better beat Nicholls State next weekend by a significant margin. Otherwise, it's going to be a long year in Ruston. If Tech squeaks by or, heaven forbid, loses to the 1-AA Colonels, quarterback Zac Champion should be benched and replaced by one of the two freshman. Consider this a rebuilding year and move on.
