  1. How Skip Holtz and his coaching staff have attacked and been effective with the transfer portal this offseason has been unprecedented, even by their recruiting standards. Since the 2019 squad shut out Miami, 14-0, in the Independence Bowl in Shreveport to conclude the season five months ago, Louisiana Tech has added five transfers, four of those from FBS programs. The other transfer was an FCS quarterback Luke Anthony from Abilene Christian that signed on Signing Day back in February. Tech has made some big splashes on the transfer market, not only from a team needs standpoint, but a

  4. Skip Holtz sat at his designated Conference USA Media Day table last year in Dallas for what amounted to be a standard, ho-hum business trip. Holtz, entering his second season as Louisiana Tech’s head coach at the time, was hardly the focus. Sure, he did a local TV segment where he playfully interviewed running back Kenneth Dixon and linebacker Tony Johnson, but other than that, not much attention was thrown the Bulldogs’ way. Coming off a 4-8 season at the time, there wasn’t a particular reason for a spotlight. Plus, C-USA coaches predicted Tech to finish fourth in the West. They did advise T
  5. Offensive OutlookSokol threw for 3,436 yards and 30 touchdowns as the field general for offensive coordinator Tony Peterson. Replacing Sokol is former Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel who transferred to Louisiana Tech to play his final season of college football after a disappointing career with the Gators. Driskel was a former top recruit who struggled with turnovers and staying healthy during his time in Gainesville, but the chance for a happy ending exists in this system that should be a welcome sight for Driskel after his offensive coaching staff at Florida was in a constant state of flux.
  6. There was big news out of Conference USA today that could have a significant impact on the race for the West Division title. Louisiana Tech landed Mickey Johnson, a big 310-pound defensive tackle who will be eligible immediately after leaving LSU. The Bulldogs have become a prime landing spot for transfers the last couple of years. Iowa transfer quarterback Cody Sokol and Illinois transfer defensive end Houston Bates played huge roles in the Bulldogs’ big 2014 season that included a Heart of Dallas Bowl win over Illinois. There is no telling if Johnson will have a similar impact, but
  7. It’s nice to be ranked,” Tech coach Skip Holtz said. “I think you can kind of look of who’s in the top three or four and who’s in the bottom three or four, but whether you’re one or two or two or three, some of that is more for the fan base to get excited about the recruiting process.” Rivals.com has Louisiana Tech ranked the highest of the major recruiting sites at No. 74 overall and second in Conference USA by a slim margin behind Florida Atlantic, which already has 26 commitments. Tech has 22 commitments and will look to add a few more to get up to 25. 247sports.com has Tech at
  8. Face Illinois at noon in HOD on ESPN. Would be a nice win for the conference.
  9. Rice looks good. Also UTEP up 17-7 in 3rd over FIU.
  10. The game against Army at Fair park Cotton bowl today is delayed due to terrible weather. Next week it will be sunny and 75 for Texas OU. Life isn't fair.
  11. IRVING, TEXAS — Louisiana Tech defensive end IK Enemkpali enjoyed conducting mock interviews with opposing players at Conference USA media day. If new Tech coach Skip Holtz wants to see his Bulldogs on the same film as 2013 opponents, he will need to confiscate the interview footage. With the move to Conference USA, Tech will play 10 new opponents that weren’t on the 2012 schedule, which leaves the coaching staff without much study material over the summer. “It creates a lot of unknowns because we can’t go back to last year and say, ‘Oh they have that one running back or one defensive
  12. McNeese State athletic director Tommy McClelland could be named the new athletic director at Louisiana Tech on Tuesday, according to media reports. Although McClelland's hiring hasn't been officially confirmed by school officials, it appears he will succeed Bruce Van De Velde, who was recently re-assigned within the university. The media report came from Patrick Netherton, the voice of NSU sports and a member of the Tim Brando Show. McClelland holds both a Bachelors and a Masters degree from Northwestern State where he was a football and track standout. The native of Basile, La., served
  13. Not long after Dooley’s 2010 departure Van De Velde was presented keys to the kingdom and he set about making his mark. Tech athletic directors, like ADs at most non-AQ, BCS schools, must pick their poison being as adept at raising funds as they are at managing a budget. Van De Velde’s vast experience at his Big 12 stops perhaps prepared him for not always being the most popular guy on campus. When you’re in control of the purse springs with limited resources, you can’t make everyone happy. Perhaps the need for money is why Van De Velde was criticized for putting so much effort into fo
  14. Louisiana Tech will launch one of the most important weeks in school history Monday when it welcomes a new president, a new athletic conference and kicks off a country-wide search for a new athletic director. Itll be a largely subdued celebration in Ruston today when Dr. Les Guice officially takes over the universitys reins from longtime president Dr. Dan Reneau. Tech also officially joins Conference USA today in a move supporters hope will continue moving its sports programs forward. I dont know if this is the biggest week in school history, but it certainly is a big week for me, Guice sa
  15. May 9, 2013 As we approach an exciting new era in Louisiana Tech Athletics with our entrance into Conference USA this July, I wanted to share with you some of the success and achievements of our student athletes, coaches and staff. Academics The student athletes representing Louisiana Tech have achieved remarkable success in the classroom. In two important benchmarks utilized by the NCAA, Louisiana Tech student athletes achieved the highest graduation success rate (80%) and academic progress rate in school history. The football program achieved a 79% GSR. A select few schools that achi
  16. "I don't want to speak for the conference, but when Charlotte and Old Dominion are up and running with their football programs, there's a good chance for Southern Miss to shift to the west (division). "I'm excited about that relationship because the competition goes back decades. We also have a chance to develop new rivalries, like with North Texas." Van De Velde serves on the league's television committee, and he said Tech has an opportunity to bundle games not picked up C-USA's television partners (ESPN, CBS and Fox Sports). "Maybe there are one or two games that won't be picked
  17. Dear Bulldog Nation, As you are aware, the Louisiana Tech football team with a 9-3 record was not selected to participate in a bowl game this season. All of us are tremendously disappointed for the team, especially the 32 seniors, who will not receive an opportunity to represent the school one more time on the football field. I hope this letter will help you understand the timeline as well as provide accurate information regarding the bowl selection process. We entered this season knowing that the WAC had just one bowl agreement and the champion of the conference would participate i
  18. Merry Christmas, Quinton Patton. And Colby Cameron. And Ryan Allen. Even though you proved you were some of the best in the country at your positions, you will be idle for the next five weeks while roughly 7,000 other college football players complete their 2012 seasons — some their careers — in a bowl game. The aforementioned Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and their teammates were robbed of one final opportunity to gather together and proudly wear red and blue — a priceless gift for a college athlete no matter their future. The Bulldogs were jilted by an administration that, this week, may have l

But sometimes a school's handling of a situation can make it take a step backwards when it's trying to move ahead.

  24. The WAC could be in its final year as a football conference. The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting Utah State is headed to the Mountain West as is San Jose State to replace Boise State and San Diego State, who are leaving for the Big East after this season. The report also said Louisiana Tech is going to Conference USA joining Texas-San Antonio, which is voting on the move to C-USA this week. UTSA joins the WAC this season, but was one of the additions back in Nov. 2010. The move leaves Idaho, New Mexico State and Texas State as the remaining football-playing schools in the conference. B
