I am a loyal of fan of Louisiana Tech because it is my alma mater. I am an avid fan of LSU because I was born and raised in Louisiana (FYI: The LSU fan-base is statewide, just like it is for the Saints) and because I married into an LSU family. So tonight my worlds were colliding.
A Tech victory tonight would have meant statewide bragging rights for the Bulldogs. A loss would only have been what everyone expected anyway. An LSU victory tonight means a number one ranking and the status of the leading contender for the national championship. An LSU loss would have meant no national championship for the bayou state.
So how do I feel now that it’s all said and done. I’m sad that Tech lost. I’m glad that LSU won. If that sounds like a contradiction to you, then welcome to my world . . . world’s colliding!
