Bye bye Derek Dooley. Hello Sonny Dykes. Dykes brings a high octane-passing attack to Louisiana Tech that the WAC won't be ready for. Every year besides Boise State, Tech always has the best athletes in the WAC, they just have never seemed to bring it together for a good run. I'm sick of hearing about Nevada!

Nevada does have a great offense but besides their defensive end its one of the worst defenses in the nation especially the secondary tech will throw all over Nevada. For Fresno State I see Tech pulling that game out also, and its in Ruston.

Tech has one of the best returners in the nation in Phillip Livas, the question is who will win the QB job. Will it be last year's starter Ross Jenkins or Auburn transfer Steven Ensminger. But Livas will get help with two transfers Tim Molton (LSU) and Ahmad Paige (Tennessee). RB will be okay but Lennon Creer transfer from Tennessee will carry most of the load.



Tech's defense will be solid with Adrien Cole and Solomon Randle returning at LB. The D-line will have to step up and replace what D'Anthony Smith did at Tech. They have Matt Broha at LE but other then that, there aren't many proven players on the D-line. The secondary is solid led by Safety Tank Calais who will be one of the best defensive players in the league.



9-3 is my guess but 8-4 won't be bad I see them losing to Texas A&M, Navy who has a very strong running game and Boise State. But in the next years to come Tech will win WAC championships due to Boise's departure to the MWC. It looks like a great year for the Bulldogs and a great team Ruston will be proud of.     

I would like to personally thank my buddies KJ and Chris Feron on showing me the Tech campus and the weightroom and some of the practices.
