We're playing ULM this week so I got to thinking. I'm curious why they don't play.

Tech rightfully views them as beneath them, as should Southern Miss.

Posterchild for shoestring NCAA budgets and the need for consolidation of higher learning in Louisiana.

ULM really should've stayed a JUCO, but every city thinks they have to have a university

So, you are saying it won't do us any good in the league to lose to them Saturday...?

If USM loses to ULM Saturday, many USM fans will agree with Tech fans.

RE: Why won't LaTech play ULM?
10 years ago I wouldn't have sweated this game....since these were the kinda games when Jeff Bowah flourished as a Corch....(He just basically stopped winning as an underdog at a school that took pride in knocking off the "big boys")

Since 2011 (and maybe even some ways under Fedora*), we don't seem to have the same chip on the shoulder we once had, or the reputation we once held from teams like ULM (they know now they can beat us because they've seen the film)...

*Disclaimer: I'm not comparing Bowah to Fedora, Monkie or anyone....It's just a fact, back in the day, we were pretty much gonna win games against the ULM's of the world.
It also once was a given at USM we could lose to anyone, or beat anyone...today it's pretty much, "we could lose to anyone". 04-cheers

I'm pretty certain that this ULM team would match up favorably with that winless Rice squad that came into the Rock midweek and beat Bower's team in one of his last years.

But you are correct... For the most part, Bower's teams beat the teams they should beat and got beat by the teams they were expected to lose to.

ULM put the beatdown on MT a couple of times.

Used to have some very good baseball teams, as well.
