This past weekend, former NBA star Karl Malone let loose with a rant aimed at the athletic directors of his alma mater.
The Mailman went off about Louisana Tech holding out on an invite to the Independence Bowl against rival ULM. The school reportedly hoped to get invited to another collegiate bowling tournament. However, that never happened and the school missed out on joining in on the festivities despite holding a 9-3 record on the football field this season.
“I am Bulldog to the core,” Malone wrote. “I am heartbroken and embarrassed that our university would do this to Tech Nation. To our football and staff this is exactly what is wrong with our university.”
Karl continued to criticize the school from his official Twitter account: @TheDeliverer_32: is exactly what is wrong with our university. Now it’s time to get former athletes to run our program. I’m 6″9 and not hard to find.
–Wouldn’t it be nice to hire a person doing it for university, and not somebody doing it for a bigger and better job in their mind?
–Whoever made this desicision have the balls to tell the guys why. As one alumni of LaTech I want to know why.
–TechNation what I have been saying for a long time,start hiring former tech athletes to get the pride back into The university and athletics
