I came from Union Parish, so I still feel like the outsider looking in, and when I see everything going on with the school system here I feel one primary emotion: jealousy. I’d like to tell you that I feel pride, but I haven’t been in this community nearly long enough to feel like a part of it. Union Parish is a different story.

Tech (22-6, 10-3 C-USA) and MT (21-7, 11-2 C-USA) have certainly made their presence known in their first year in Conference USA with the Bulldogs in a four-way tie for second place and just one game back of the Blue Raiders.
