RICHMOND, Va. -- Louisiana Tech women's basketball coach Leon Barmore is a veteran of Final Fours, making his seventh appearance in this year's event.But Barmore, the only male coach to win a women's national championship, has not been to the national semifinals since 1990, and the landscape has changed since then.Four years ago, when the Techsters lost to Auburn in the semifinals, there was a day between the semifinals and championship game, but in the past three years that day has been wiped out so that CBS can televised all three games.

Here is a roundup of which first-round draft prospects the Ravens are linked to in 2013 NFL mock drafts. --- ESPN's Todd McShay predicts that the Ravens will select Louisiana Tech wide receiver Quinton Patton . “This was a tough one to project. The Ravens could go with ILB Kevin Minter to replace the retired Ray Lewis, or with a safety like Matt Elam, D.J. Swearinger or John Cyprien to fill the void left by Ed Reed's departure,” he wrote. “There are a lot of options, but I like Patton's ability to step into the role previously filled by Anquan Boldin.

For Louisiana Tech, an invitation to play in the Poulan-Weed Eater Independence Bowl in Shreveport, La., is a sweet reward at the end of a tough, three-year climb out of Division I-AA and into the ranks of major-college football.But it is a reward for which Tech appears to have labored as long and as hard off the field as the players did on the field."Our young men have won eight games, and we have a head football coach that has done an incredible job in three years," said athletic director Jerry Stovall, who has been in his post just three weeks.

All week, as Navy's players accepted pats on the back and compliments for the way they played in a close loss at Ohio State last weekend, coach Ken Niumatalolo worried that the Midshipmen might not have the proper mentality when their game against Louisiana Tech began Saturday afternoon. What he saw in the first six minutes of the game didn't make him feel better. The Bulldogs put together a long touchdown drive, Navy went three and out, and then Louisiana Tech junior Phillip Livas returned a punt 85 yards for another touchdown.

Coaching is certainly in Jack Bicknell III's genes, but are last-second comebacks, too? In his fifth season as head coach at Louisiana Tech, Bicknell has already been a part of some huge upsets - and miraculous comebacks. In Bicknell's first year, the Bulldogs beat Alabama by a point in Tuscaloosa. Last season, Louisiana Tech came from 18 points down in the second half to beat Oklahoma State in Shreveport. Saturday's 20-19 victory over Michigan State was another game that evoked memories for Bicknell of a game played nearly two decades ago. That was Boston College's miracle win at Miami in 1984, when Bicknell was Doug Flutie's center and his dad, Cowboy Jack, was coaching the Eagles.

By Gene Wang In the first half of Saturday night's game at Louisiana Tech, Navy's triple option offense was having only mixed success, and the Midshipmen were in danger of losing for the second time in three games. Complicating Navy's problems was quarterback Ricky Dobbs's bum ankle, which he had hurt in the team's opener against Maryland on Labor Day and aggravated the following game, and the absences of the starting right tackle and free safety because of concussions. Given the troubling circumstances, the first drive of the second half may prove to have been the most meaningful so far this season for the Midshipmen.

When Navy's triple option was operating at its peak last season, scoring touchdowns from close range became so routine that the coaching staff called the same play over and again, indifferent as to whether the defense was aligned to stop it. Ricky Dobbs would take the snap, tuck the ball away and burrow into the end zone, disregarding size mismatches or dogged pursuit in his direction. The results were record-setting. Dobbs ran for 27 touchdowns, the most in a single season by a quarterback in NCAA history, and the Midshipmen amassed double-figure wins for the third time in program history, largely because of their brute efficiency at the goal line.

Last meeting: Navy won, 32-14, on Sept. 12, 2009, in Annapolis. Seeing red: Navy has been downright undependable inside the 20-yard line this season. That trend is particularly worrisome considering Louisiana Tech can strike quickly and often.

Who knew that all those years that Leon Barmore was guiding the Louisiana Tech women's basketball team to Final Four appearances and national championships that he was leading a mid-major? Barmore, a 2003 inductee to the Basketball Hall of Fame, always figured the Lady Techsters, who won two NCAA championships, made five title-game appearances and went to nine Final Fours during his 20-year tenure, were just as major as the Texas, Tennessee and LSU teams they were playing and beating. "I don't even know where these words originate, mid-major and major and all that," said Barmore, who retired in 2002 with an .869 winning percentage.
