re: LA Tech defeats THE Ohio State University 82-74 - ortiz1193
Not only was Memphis bringing the pain at the beginning, they were getting extremely lucky with shots bouncing their way, and a ton of foul calls (not necessarily bad ones). When Tech adjusted and Memphis's momentum slowed, Tech didn't seem that much worse and cut the lead from 25 to 17, which could...

re: What is your favorite painting? - ortiz1193
Someone already posted View of Toledo, so I'll go with Mantegna's Parnassus, the much less famous, yet much cooler counterpart to the scenes painted by Raphael and Mengs. [img]http://mini-site.louvre.fr/mantegna/images/section8/zoom/08_03.jpg[/img]...

re: This guy on Jeopardy could pull a Ken Jennings - ortiz1193
I kind of know this guy. Like someone said earlier, he's been one of the top 2 or 3 Quiz Bowl players in the world for the last few years. He led Yale to a national championship a few years ago. If you're interested in reading more about his Quiz Bowl accomplishments: [link=(http://www.qbwik...

re: What is Southern University? - ortiz1193
Just to be clear, UGA can name their score against this team. I watched the Louisiana Tech vs. Southern game a few weeks ago, and Southern looked like a high school team. It was the worst game I've ever seen. Jeff Driskel left the game leading the country in passer efficiency. He only played the fir...

re: LHSAA week 3... Landry-Walker/St. Aug tonight - ortiz1193
Byrd taking it to Calvary on Fox Sports Southwest going into the 4th. 14-14 at half (thanks to a kick return from Calvary's LSU commit). In the 3rd, Byrd just ran it for 200 yards and Calvary gained negative yards. Edit: 35-14 Byrd...

re: All UVA fraternities suspended until next semester - ortiz1193
It is beyond clear most of the people in this thread never read http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/features/a-rape-on-campus-20141119 (the original article). This isn't another story about a random drunk girl who regrets having sex - there is a clear problem and it's pretty disgusting. ...

re: Rand Paul Speaks to National Urban League - ortiz1193
I just did a basic google search. The articles say not many people showed up - the auditorium was half-full. They blamed it on the fact that the speech was at 8 am. The responses were also kind of mixed. See here: http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/politics/2014/07/25/urban-league-gives-paul-po...

re: How good of a workout is yoga? Specifically for the core? - ortiz1193
It depends on the style. Like someone else said, I generally do yoga for stretching. I'd bet that most of the time, you'll get a better core workout from any workout video or class that is focused on abs specifically....

Louisiana Tech students on 'What Would You Do?' (gay tolerance) - ortiz1193

re: So my daughter has received interest from an Ivy League school - ortiz1193
PSAT scores should have been out for a few months now. They release the qualifying score for each state next September. If anyone is telling you that scores aren't out, someone isn't doing their job. They released them to high schools in like December. Mississippi had a cutoff of 207 last year. ...

re: Gary Parrish: Tennessee closing in on Louisiana Tech coach Mike White - ortiz1193
I go to Tech. I (and the entire fan base) will be crying ourselves to sleep if he leaves, which should tell you all you need to about how good of a coach he is. Our attendance has gone up, we've gotten drastically better every year, etc blah blah. I'm hoping this is all smoke. I think he's an Ole Mi...

re: 2 youth sports at the same time? - ortiz1193
I'm actually pretty surprised that so many people actually think 2 sports is even worth worrying. I guess my thought is skewed because my best friend in elementary school did karate, tennis, golf, football, baseball, swimming, basketball, regularly. As he got older he began having to choose which on...

re: Better engineering school: LSU or LA Tech? - ortiz1193
Does everyone in this thread realize that college applications to good schools end at like January 1st? If he's only applied to Tech, LSU, and MIT (he won't hear back from MIT until March), then I don't see the point of everyone telling him to go to Georgia Tech, etc , which would have been good adv...

re: Better engineering school: LSU or LA Tech? - ortiz1193
Yeah, this site will definitely be biased. Here's a bunch of anecdotal evidence from my life: I go to Tech now. I have a 35 ACT, national merit, etc, and I can say with full confidence that Tech's engineering program is pretty strong, and it's pretty funny to see people posting lol at having it ...

re: Article on TOPS Reform - ortiz1193
My main disagreement with this plan is the removal of the stipends. Textbooks and other basic school expenses are hardly covered by the stipends. Getting rid of them is not worth it. Then there's the incredibly flawed idea that people with scores that high can already afford it and don't need the st...

Article on TOPS Reform - ortiz1193
Since there have been a handful of threads on TOPS here, I thought I'd share this. A La Tech alum wrote his 80 page masters thesis on TOPS reform.

re: TCU College Freshman Is Just 11 Years Old - ortiz1193
I don't know what to think about this kid. The SAT score is just very good, not genius level. I know a kid who got a 2050 in 7th grade. He got a 2300 something his freshman year and he's starting his sophomore year now. He's very, very smart, but no prodigy. I'm sure there are tons of advanced kids...
