Ungrateful snobs

Apparently the Tulane coaches weren't thankful that Louisiana Tech provided a place for their team to live after Katrina wiped out their overpriced school. Tech bent over backwards to share facilities, coaches offices, dressing rooms ... pretty much whatever they needed they got. Tech didn't have to help, but it was the right thing to do.

But CBS SportsLine.com Senior Writer Dennis Dodd took a shot at Tech in his Thursday column by saying, "The team eventually relocated to Louisiana Tech, where the player dorms were deplorable." Then he quotes an unnamed coach as saying, "the rats were 'a good eight to 10 inches' long." The writer doesn't mention Tech's largesse and he doesn't say that the dorms were scheduled to be destroyed. They were kept open simply to provide housing for evacuees, including a contingent of athletes from Tulane.

The next time a hurricane comes calling across lovely New Orleans, maybe the Tulane snobs will find the Hilton to their liking.
