WAC voters love Tech; national voters don't like Louisiana

Another week, another weekly WAC award for Louisiana Tech.

This time, Tech reliever Andrew Alsup won the conference's weekly pitching award, keeping Tech's perfect record alive. The Bulldogs have collected at least one award (Pitcher of the Week; Hitter of the Week) in each of the first four weeks of the season.

But it seems the Louisiana love stops there. On the eve of its normally huge game with LSU, Tulane fell out of the Baseball America Top 25, leaving the state with no ranked teams.

Sheesh, what once was a given now is certainly a maybe. 2006 was a down season for Louisiana teams that much we know. It's too early to write 2007 off just yet, but it seems the state is headed for another down year even with the improvement at Tech, Southeastern Louisiana and Grambling.
