Always something

The WAC's awarding of the 2008 conference baseball tournament to Louisiana Tech was enthusiastically received in these parts.

In the rest of the conference, not so much.

One columnist said Tech's selection as the host was not a good choice. His main point was the travel in getting to Ruston is difficult for the teams in the tournament.

Gee, that would be the same travel Tech makes all year long.

Look, if anything the WAC should be applauded for trying to be inclusive, with a conference championship event in Ruston.

This Tech-WAC marriage isn't what it was in the beginning. The loss of regional schools to other conferences has left Tech on its own version of an island making it and Hawaii the most difficult schools to reach.

Until a better fit for both comes along, at least Tech and the WAC are trying to make the best of the situation.
