    Re: Op/Ed: The Independence Bowl is in trouble

    How happy are the I-Bowl officials about LSU's demise this season? Or are they worried that LSU won't get to 6 wins?

    Remember you don't really need six wins. You can get a waiver if there are not enough six win teams or you're LSU and the Indy Bowl wants you.

    I'll be surprised if LSU decides to go to the bowl at 6-6 - anything worse they will stay home...

    What reason do they have not to like Tech? Seems odd since we were accused of being in cahoots with them in 2009.
    It goes back to 1990 when we had to beg to get an invite with an 8-3-1 record. I dont think Tech fans felt like the I-Bowl really wanted us but there was a lot of public pressure to issue us an invite. Of course, the crowd was one of the largest if not the largest in I Bowl history. Also a pretty good game b/t the dawgs and the terps. I think moving forward it always seemed like any invite to Tech was last choice. Glad we moved to a conference that has provided some bowl options and the I-Bowl is not one.

    The way the SEC is going this year there isn't a sure fire win on the rest of LSU's schedule, of course there is only won real sure fire loss on there either. Their cross conference games are both on the road at Fla and Tenn. I have not watched a single snap of LSU this year. Not sure how bad they are but they could very well lose out.

    Re: Op/Ed: The Independence Bowl is in trouble

    Would someone with some more time do a comprehensive Tech/i-bowl relationship history. It would be an interesting read. That would be an interesting idea for an article in the Shreveport times if anyone over there actually knew Tech and/or the I-bowl actually exist. I suspect it would be full of anti-Tech spin. It would be interesting to get a Tech version and I-Bowl version of some of the snubs/ attempted deals that have happened over the years.

    Techdawg28, theHistorian, & TechAlumni05 (hopefully I didn't butcher these) would be good candidates to find this information.

    It will be quite funny when LSU goes 6-6 or 5-7 and turns down an I-Bowl invite.

    Why wouldn't they want to play a 5-7 ACC team? Might be a rematch of their Syracuse game. Hell, they would probably fill the stadium with all the North Louisiana Wal Mart fans who could never get to Baton Rouge. Of course, no way they would play a good C-USA, AAC, MAC etc team. Might be a rematch of the Syracuse game.

    "At the end of year two, we have the ability to renew or not renew,” Lemonis said. “And so I’ve been very candid with them that the experience is going to determine whether we return or not.”
    Spoiler alert: The experience didn't go well.

    Where are the bylaws for the Independence Bowl Foundation (if any exist)? I'm trying to figure out how the foundation is supposed to operate.

    I know Walk-On is growing but I can't imagine they have the dough to offer huge sums of money to a dying bowl.
