Finally, I caved and inserted Louisiana Tech at No. 25. Did I do that partly out of sentiment to give some love to an off-the-grid midmajor? Of course. You know I'm a sentimental guy. But when I went back and reviewed the Bulldogs' 12-3 record, I was reminded that those wins include a road game at Oklahoma on Dec. 30. That win looks even better now than it did at the time.
