What's up at Tech?

What's going on at Louisiana Tech? The football team has lost nine games. The men's basketball team has won one. Even the women's basketball team has lost games that would have been unfathomable just a couple of years ago.

The football team's troubles were to be expected. The schedule was much too tough for a young team. But nine losses is a lot and as much as I like Jack Bicknell, I think the Bulldogs need to play well on Saturday at New Mexico State to have him return next year.

The men's basketball team figured to have some struggles after losing Paul Millsap to the NBA. But 12 points in a half? Thirty-six points in a loss to Southern Illinois? That doesn't bode well.

And the women. Losing at SFA. Losing to something called Eastern Kentucky. That doesn't bode well either, although you have to think the Techsters can get it turned around by WAC play.

The good news for Louisiana Tech is that athletic success is often cyclical. Now if Tech fans can be patient for the cycle to turn back up.
