Robinson museum tribute to a legend

His object of interest?
A portion of the numerous memorabilia items that are a part of a temporary exhibit honoring the legacy of long-time Grambling State University head football coach Edward Gay Robinson.
Young and old alike began showing up at the facility this weekend to enjoy a wide range of artifacts that are a testament to the legendary career of the man who spent 57 years at the helm of the Tigers' program and totaled a then NCAA record 408 victories at the time of his retirement in 1997.

Mulkey-Robertson leads Baylor to Indy

First team to qualify for this year's NCAA Final Four.
First time that the Lady Bears have ever made it to the Final Four.
And Mulkey-Robertson, the former player/coach at Louisiana Tech University, became the first person ever to make it to the Final Four as both a player and head coach.
That all happened in a matter of hours in Temple, Ariz., on Monday night, when the No. 2 seeded Lady Bears (31-3) upended favored No. 1 seed North Carolina (30-4) 72-63 for the championship of the Tempe Regional.

Dogs get nice mix in spring battle

You've got your good days and bad days and other days in which, well, things turn out to be pretty much stable.
It was probably more of the latter — stability on both sides of the football — that earmarked Louisiana Tech University's third annual Bone Bowl at Joe Aillet Stadium on Saturday.
The offense had its good moments, but so did the defense.

Jackson is big time recruit for Bulldogs

If you blinked, you might have missed watching the three-time Class 2-A All-State running back juke and jive for West St. John High of Edgard.
There he is and now he's gone, either for big chunks of yardage or the end zone.
With that brief view of the 5-11 and 195-pounder, it was easy to see why Jackson ranks among the top recruited players at his position in the country and arguably the best running back in Louisiana's prep circles this past season.

Collins has change of heart on RHS

Or, more appropriately, the Texas turnaround.
Within less than a 24-hour period Wednesday, Pat Collins went from being approved as the new head football coach and athletic director at Ruston High to remaining on in the same positions at Longview High.
At approximately 12:30 p.m., in the library of Dubach High School, he was unanimously approved for those titles at RHS by members of the Lincoln Parish School Board.

'Dogs take double OT victory

Well, the sixth year head coach of the Bulldogs got his wish and a little more.
In fact, a whole lot more.
“I told our guys before the game that, when they returned to the dressing room afterwards, I wanted them to feel like they were completely drained with emotion and had given it everything they had.
“But I sure didn’t think it was going to take 50 minutes to do it.”

Techsters fall to Duke, 63-49

She was doing her best to keep her emotions in check.
But then, a small tear began trickling down from under her right eye.
The senior forward for the Lady Techsters didn't want to have what she called "five great years of college basketball" to end in this manner.
But the scoreboard hanging over the floor in the Ted Constant Convocation Center still read: Duke 63, Louisiana Tech 49.

Robinson remains legend among Grambling faithful

It occurred during the NCAA's annual national signing period for gridiron prospects earlier this month, when more than 40 student-athletes joined the Tigers' program.
The vast majority, when asked about reasons for choosing the famous Lincoln Parish school, made references to coach Robinson and the indelible imprint that he placed on the program for nearly 60 years.

Millsap, Carter, Budke head all-WAC list

And because they did, Louisiana Tech University's basketball teams have three of the top individual award winners on the 2003-2004 all-league squad announced Sunday.
Millsap, just a year out of stardom at Grambling High, was named as the Freshman of the Year in the men's division.
Carter was tabbed as the Player of the Year and Budke as the Coach of the Year in the women's category.
Certainly no shock regarding any of those honorees.

'Dogs come back to beat SMU

Louisiana Tech University’s Bulldogs found themselves in that very predicament for much of Saturday afternoon at the Thomas Assembly Center before scrapping their way to an eventual 74-69 overtime victory against SMU.
Until Tech (13-11, 7-7) began making a move with just under nine minutes remaining in regulation time, it appeared that the Mustangs (10-14, 4-10) would blaze the trail back to Big D with a rather convincing Western Athletic Conference victory.
