    NO Bowl Question

    Came over here to see what you guys would think about a possible game vs Arkansas State in the NO Bowl?? Is that something that your fan base would get around because of the old rivalry in the past or would you not even care?

    I am a stAte fan, and I would love to see it.

    If you hate the idea, what does your fan base want, within reason?

    TECH fans want to play up. Playing football with any team from the Sun Belt is not considered playing up.

    stAte is ranked ahead of La Tech. I would think that is "playing up"?

    Re: NO Bowl Question

    I have no interest whatsoever in rekindling a competitive relationship with Arkansas State. It's a very tough sell to our fan base, because most of them are young, and they weren't around in the old Southland Conference days. Furthermore, our older fans have seen better days (e.g., WAC, CUSA, etc..) and moved on too.

    Fact is since last playing Arkansas State, LA Tech has built a much better brand and been in better conferences with much more marquis opponents (e.g., former WAC & current CUSA) as equal peers. No offense to you (but this is OUR board), but I believe most LA Tech fans would prefer to play a more highly respected G5 opponent if we cannot get a game against a P5.

    I really don't see how playing Arkansas State serves any of LA Tech's long or short term goals.

    Do you think your admin would pass on the NO Bowl invite if they got it? Would not want another I-Bowl mess.

    LA Tech is already 8-3, and could very likely be 9-4 or 10-3 by Bowl game time. Furthermore, CUSA already has 6 or 7 firm bowl ties besides the remote possibility of a NO Bowl invite. So, by virtue of its record alone, LA Tech will have plenty of Bowl options to consider without having to resort to playing Arkansas St.

    And, you show your stupidity! Tech never passed on the I-Bowl. The I-Bowl had their choice of Tech, Ohio or Iowa State, based on the Liberty Bowl's decision between Tech and Iowa State. But, instead of waiting, they chose Ohio.

    In general, I "get around" any bowl game. But my preference would be a P5 school in the HoD bowl.

    Thank you for bringing it up. We would absolutely not pass on the N O Bowl against ASU if it were our only opportunity. Given that USM hasn't been to a bowl in a while and closer, the conference would likely place them there. That is not to say that I think So. Miss would outdraw TECH in the N. O. Bowl.

    Don't want the NO Bowl! I feel it is tainted by the ULL mob.

    The world faces this nonsense every year. Someone has to represent that shitty conference every year. It's the "tallest pygmy" syndrome. Sometimes ULL pops up, sometimes it's you Arky St guys. We've even seen ULM go to a bowl and make an arse of themselves and your conference.

    The New Orleans Bowl wouldn't be bad if we were playing against a P5 conference opponent. I have little interest in playing a Sun Belt Conference school, though. I'd go to the game if that the one Tech goes to, of course.

    Is that something that your fan base would get around because of the old rivalry in the past or would you not even care?
    I'm a relatively new Tech fan/alum (graduated in 2005 and 2006), so Arkansas State was never a rival in my eyes. It would be like playing UL-Monroe or UL-Lafayette in football. It would not be a rivalry game...it would be just another game.

    I am a stAte fan, and I would love to see it. If you hate the idea, what does your fan base want, within reason?
    Playing a P5 conference opponent or a Top-25 G5 conference opponent (this year's Navy, Memphis, or Houston) in a bowl game.
