tech is trying to go for that University of Washington look with the field surrounded by forrest thing. when is the estimated time tech will begin working on this project or has it already begun? i'm not talking about planning and whatnot, but about ground breaking and foundation laying

I think they are planning to break ground in 2 years. They have raised about half the cost, from what I've been told.

i think that is about the time frame UL is looking to start renovations and additions to Cajun Field.

I compare Drew to Dave Kingman because you always wanted to see him bat. He might hit a record distance home run or more often, a stunningly inept strikeout. He was usually at the top of the league in homers and toward the bottom in strikeouts and batting average.

Awesome...you guys will have a great end zone and a dumpy stadium...and we will have a kick-ass one of a kind stadium (first ever gold leed certified and first college stadium made by HKS, same people who did cowboys stadium) and one of the best Non-AQ athletic villages....LA TECH couldn't hold UNT's jock strap right now...and i hope LA TECH doesn't get a Belt invite because it would suck for our teams to ever have to spend a night in Rustin...do yall even have a Hotel in that tiny ass town?

you dont get it do you?

Louisiana Tech dropping football or dropping down in athletics in general is exactly what the entire Sun Belt wants to happen. Doing that would instantly make Louisiana Monroe a more viable football destination, but them at a higher level then tech, make ULM stronger and thus make the SBC stronger.

If you guys want to tear down your football program before joining our little league, we are all for it. In fact I imagtine we'd gladly show up with our pick axe's and sledgehammers and help you with the entire process

The Sun Belt doesnt need La Tech...we'd take them to get us to 12 teams and a conference title game...but we're not begging or anything. if you dont want to come great. we can stay at 10 where we're already steadingly improving or pick up NMSU and an FCS and get to 12 and we'll all get together around the campfire and have a drink to the demise of Louisiana Tech

So please tear down that football stadium...we beg you. It would be a national Holliday for the entire conference. we'll forget our squabbles with each other and all hold hands and sing Kumbyyah and dance on your grave.,..

Peace

No. The excuse for not being able to entice the kind of athletes Tech does.

All sports ?:odie:

Big 3 (football, basketball, women's basketball). Historically speaking.

(I doubt Tech's facilities have ever been better than UNT's. We don't charge student fees).

Big 3 ? How about soccer, tennis, volley ball, softball, etc. You are trying to parce an answer. I also do doubt that you have superior talent to UNT in men's basketball.

I hate to even post in these threads about Tech but,

Are you kidding? Last year Tech had a 6'5" shooting guard (Gibson) that will play in the NBA at some point (hurt at the end of the year). Rolle 6'11" 2nd round NBA draft pick (hurt at the end of the season). Olu Ashaolu 6-7 g/f who will be at least a 2nd round pick one day.

Two of Tech's best players were hurt before the WAC tournament and it cost them a trip the NIT at a minimum.
