Head Coach Michael White of Louisiana Tech University isn’t concerned so much about the national polls as how his young team handles the attention.
“Ninety percent of this is how we’re going to handle the success,” he said Monday shortly after the weekly Associated Press and USA Today polls revealed another advance in votes for his Western Athletic Conference-leading team. “In the big picture, honestly, all of this success may be coming a little too fast for our players, so we’ve got to keep reminding them about it.”
The Bulldogs went from eight points in last week’s AP poll to 24 this week, leaving them in the No. 33 position ahead of Kentucky, which is No. 34 with 21 points.

Looking for something a bit different from that everyday routine of TV and computer games? Looking to add just a little more excitement to your day? Well, maybe you can. Take another look at 4-H; don’t only think back to when all you did in 4-H was show livestock and cook. We still do those things but we’ve added so much more. Seems to me we add something different every year. Today I wanted to spend a little time talking to you about one of our newer 4-H programs that several people are very excited about and tell you what you need to do to get involved.

So, I hate zombies. If I’m going to watch something about supernatural undead creatures, I tend to prefer the better preserved, often attractive vampire creatures.
My husband, on the other hand, likes zombies a lot (as do many people these days, in case you hadn’t noticed all the zombie-related everything), but he hates chick flicks.
Saying that, you wouldn’t expect us to see the movie “Warm Bodies,” which successfully pulls off a zombie chick flick.
