Tech football needs strong recruiting

in
Davis, OK.jpg

There’s some good news and not so good, discouraging news regarding Louisiana Tech University’s football program.
The good news: the 2013 season is now history, one mired with a 4-8 record.
But the not so good news?
The Bulldogs will have one their toughest schedules ever. The season opener will be at perennial national power Oklahoma. Enough said, but there’s a trip to Auburn, too.
And to deal with this schedule, the ’Dogs will have to breathe some major life in an offense that was anemic this year after averaging a Football Bowl Division-best 51.5 points per game in 2012.

Louisiana Tech held Louisiana-Lafayette to a season-low total in points as the Lady Techsters defeated the Ragin’ Cajuns 51-44 Saturday evening at the Thomas Assembly Center.
Coming into the game, Tech (2-6) had struggled defensively during the season, but not against UL-Lafayette.
While picking up the 39th straight win in the series history, the Lady Techsters held Louisiana-Lafayette to 30 percent (19-64) shooting, including only four-of-25 from the 3-point line. With Tech not clicking on all offensive cylinders, Weatherspoon and Co. needed the defensive effort for the victory.

Ruston’s Tarbutton Road interchange project is moving one step closer to reality.
The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development has asked the state bond commission to add $4 million to the funding already allocated for the work, Mayor Dan Hollingsworth said Friday.
The bond commission is expected to act on the request in January. If the commission approves the fund transfer, Ruston will have enough money to take bids for the project.
“That means the project can go to bid in the near future and will become a reality,” Hollingsworth said.
