Now it’s the turn for the men’s basketball team at Louisiana Tech University to get some love in the Top 25.
First, football last fall when the Bulldogs captivated their fans and the nation with an appearance in the national Top 25 polls.
Earlier this week, the Bulldogs’ hoopsters broke into the ‘25” group by climbing to the No. 25 slot in the Associated Press poll voted on by a national panel of media representatives.
It’s the first time since the mid-1980s for Tech to have both its football team and men’s basketball squad earn Top 25 listings in the same season.

“I just hope people could understand that I am doing this for a good cause and that it’s not like a video game when it comes to being here — there is no respawn button. You get killed here, you are gone. Game Over.”

He posted it in his journal on July 25, 2012, as he served as a sniper and mortar gunner with his unit in southeast Afghanistan.
