La Tech declines bowl bid

Postby Swamp Queen » Sun Dec 02, 2012 10:40 pm

Louisiana Tech said it was in line to play in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl, but when Oklahoma missed out on the BCS, it caused a chain reaction that pushed Iowa State out of the Heart of Dallas Bowl and into the Liberty Bowl in the Bulldogs' place.


Kinda sucks for the players after the season they had.

They didn't decline it, they were waiting on a better offer which never came. Indy Bowl wouldn't give them a few hours. How many girls have missed their prom playing that game?

Wow. The Mailman ripped them a new one. He even made a play for ownership of the program. Man has cojones, for sure.

Add LaTech to the long line of folks screwed by this BCS crapola. Including the fans. What a mediocre bowl lineup.

No disrespect to Charlie Strong, but Florida and the Sugar Bowl deserve a more elite matchup.

Hell, a Florida-Georgie rematch would have been a hoot.

Yep. Would have loved to see that rematch and the Sugar would have too.

How is the BCS to blame for "oh I'd love to go to the prom Johnny, but I'm waiting to see if Joey is going to ask me first, can you wait until tomorrow?"
I know they thought they had the Liberty Bowl and all the Big 12 teams slid down when NIU got the Orange Bowl, but it's not like NIU wasn't going to any bowl game. Somebody at Tech should have been doing the math and realized they were only going to get the one bowl invite.
