If there ever was a program that is the epitome of "wannabe", it is La Tech. All we have heard from the Techsters since the end of last season was "Miami, Miami, Miami". Well, after all the big build up, hype, and bullshit it appears that reality has once agin slapped La Tech in the face. I don't want to hear about how great Miami is and how Miami is this supposedly great team that La Tech won't face "a team like that" again this season. The truth is that this is a La Tech team that was 4-8 last season and was BLOWN OUT 5-6 times. Two of the blowouts were to RICE & SAN JOSE' STATE. The fact is that Miami didn't do much more than RICE did to this bunch of D1A pretenders. Then there was the hype of the "great Sellout". La Tech has been talking about selling out this game and has had half a damn year to promote it and sell it out. What was the actual result after a half of a year of promotion? Well, how about 7,000 EMPTY & UNSOLD seats in a 50,000 seat stadium only 70 miles from the La Tech campus. If La Tech can't sell this game out with Miami coming to town, they will never have a sellout. Well, what's next for La Tech? They now travel to ULL for a game with the Ragin' Coonasses in Lafayette. This is a game which is much more in tune with the La Tech program. After all, it is a game against another Louisiana in-state D1A pretender & it will pit two of the biggest wannabe's in the country against each other. I say let's promote this ULL/Tech game as the "Pretender Bowl" and award the winner a giant Golden Shlong Trophy. The winner of this annual game could keep the trophy for one year and claim the rights to the title of holder of the "LSU Penis Envy Trophy" for a year. Next blowout for Tech? two weeks at Michigan State. When will they learn?
