Since the ball is shaped funny and some of the players are teenagers and few things except gravity are exact science anyway, odd things will happen now and then in college football.
Take the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs of 2011. They are playing like the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs of 2012, the team that’s not even a team yet. But when they get to be a team, with key players returning with a year’s more experience and with a schedule that doesn’t feature games against All Three Big Mississippi Schools away, plus three of the final four games on the road, they’re supposed to be sort of good.

Heath Gean, Farmerville forester for Weyerhaeuser Company, has deer hunted for years and had never considered using trail cameras on his 850 acre lease in Union Parish. This year was his first to try a trail cam and he’s glad he did, because it revealed a buck guaranteed to get his adrenalin pumping.
“My 14 year old son, Colby, started working on me before season this year to put out a trail camera, so I finally decided to give it a try. I bought two cameras and basically turned them over to Colby who gladly agreed to check them for me,” Gean explained.
