Tech: Bowl talk nice, but win against SJSU is main goal

in

Yes, there’s still plenty remaining on the “Things To Get Accomplished” list for Louisiana Tech University’s football team.
The immediate task is to finish with a win at San Jose State University on Saturday night (9:30 p.m., CDT kickoff) and close out Western Athletic Conference play with a 5-1 record.
And if such a victory is achieved, it would be the first 10-win campaign for the Bulldogs since 1984, when then Head Coach Albert Lawrence Williams sent Tech to a 10-5 mark and finished as runner-up in the NCAA national college division playoffs.

The nation’s long election ordeal is over. While that may be good news, we must temper it with the fact that Congress is now back in session. Perhaps they can now address the huge tax increases slated to automatically become law on Jan. 1 along with the spending sequester that almost everyone in Congress said they didn’t want when they enacted it earlier this year.
The so-called “fiscal cliff” is very much in the news with the Jan. 1 deadline looming for the automatic tax increases and sequestration spending cuts. Nevertheless, beyond the “cliff” is the “fiscal swamp” that is getting less attention.
