Sad state

If you take LSU's 49-0 win over Kentucky out of the equation, Saturday was a sad day of college football around here.

Where to begin?

At home, there was Louisiana Tech turning the ball over eight times in a loss to Idaho. The 1-5 Bulldogs look like a self-fulfilling prophecy. All during the offseason there was angst over a brutal schedule - and it was brutal - and how that would play out. So far it's playing out like the worst nightmare any Tech fan could have imagined. And the bad news? Tech still has to play every week to the first week of December.

Grambling goes to Little Rock and loses to Arkansas-Pine Bluff. That's a pair of conference losses for the Tigers. But Southern, the preseason favorite, already has three losses. What in the world is going on in the SWAC.

Northwestern State has been Team Turmoil this season with the firing of a defensive coordinator and a starting quarterback quitting at midseason. The Demons lost in overtime, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of hope of turning around a 2-4 team and making it a playoff squad.

It appears basketball season can't come soon enough for some in the area.
