Bulldogs’ season successful one

That disappointing 30-27 home loss to Northwestern State University in late September now seems like eons ago for Louisiana Tech University football fans.
It’s amazing what an impressive postseason victory can do for the soul.
But, clearly, if there was any resemblance of dejection resulting from other low marks (road defeats vs. Old Dominion and Conference-USA title game setback to Marshall) on the Bulldogs’ landscape this fall, they disappeared quicker than a mannequin at a David Copperfield act in Dallas last weekend.

And always run out a football play in case of the chance of a late tackle or fumble.
Watch a pro game and you can often see that not happen. And it’s a very frustrating thing for a fan to watch, knowing that not adhering to a basic principle of athletic play can end up being costly in the long run.
