Tech gets great plug

Terry Bradshaw continues to deliver for Louisiana Tech in a big way.

After donating his four Super Bowl rings and other assorted memorabilia to the university last week, he got his alma mater some major pub on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Monday. Bradshaw is becoming almost a mainstay on the late night show with his buffoonery playing well with Leno.

Leno mentioned Bradshaw's donation to Tech, along with name dropping Tech Athletic Director Jim Oakes. A brief highlight of Terry at Tech with his gifts was shown. Bradshaw didn't do a lot for Tech for a number of years, but he has more than made up for it over the past couple of years.

Some folks might say that Bradshaw acting like an idiot on the Tonight Show gives the impression that all of us in north Louisiana have a similar bent. But who cares. Bradshaw is doing what he has to do to get repeat visits.

And you can't put a price tag on the publicity that he's giving his former school.
