Join the fight for Universal Human Rights

Except for on certain holidays such as Veterans Day and Independence Day, many Americans don’t spend a lot of time thinking about their freedoms and how lucky they are to have them.
In 1776, when the founding fathers of this country first thought to break away from their native England, they felt so strongly about human rights that they included a few in the first draft calling for American freedom.

Tech football needs strong recruiting

in
Davis, OK.jpg

There’s some good news and not so good, discouraging news regarding Louisiana Tech University’s football program.
The good news: the 2013 season is now history, one mired with a 4-8 record.
But the not so good news?
The Bulldogs will have one their toughest schedules ever. The season opener will be at perennial national power Oklahoma. Enough said, but there’s a trip to Auburn, too.
And to deal with this schedule, the ’Dogs will have to breathe some major life in an offense that was anemic this year after averaging a Football Bowl Division-best 51.5 points per game in 2012.

Louisiana Tech held Louisiana-Lafayette to a season-low total in points as the Lady Techsters defeated the Ragin’ Cajuns 51-44 Saturday evening at the Thomas Assembly Center.
Coming into the game, Tech (2-6) had struggled defensively during the season, but not against UL-Lafayette.
While picking up the 39th straight win in the series history, the Lady Techsters held Louisiana-Lafayette to 30 percent (19-64) shooting, including only four-of-25 from the 3-point line. With Tech not clicking on all offensive cylinders, Weatherspoon and Co. needed the defensive effort for the victory.
