    If the Indy Bowl beat Camping World's deal, don't you think they would be screaming from the mountain top letting everyone know they got a better deal than the $550,000 Lemonis was offering?

    That's what I'm thinking - less true $$$ overall -

    What basically verifies this is not a PEEP about financial considerations for both parties

    The mayor of Shreveport used numbers from Tourism and Visitors Bureau cited in this article: https://tinyurl.com/ybkclx78 during the press conference yesterday in reference to the I-Bowls economic impact. I have a hard time believing that.

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

    I know it's kind of the consensus on this forum to hope the Dawgs completely tank, finish 4-8, and that would hopefully (yeah, right) doom Holtz. Well, that won't happen. The ONLY thing that will happen is we'll finish 4-8, probably miss out on a couple of good recruits because of it, and we'll still have Holtz for years to come.

    Nah! I hope we get to 6-6, go to the Indy Bowl opposite an ACC team and Holtz does like he appears to have a talent for, prepare our team to win the bowl game.

    I don't think anybody on here wants us to finish 4-8. What kind BS is that? I had you on ignore, but I viewed your post to see your thoughts. Won't make that mistake again.

    Who has said anything about wanting the team to tank?

    Obviously, you haven't read all the posts.

    Anyway, I hope we end up 7-6, and that would include a bowl win of course.

    I hope we win the last two and get lucky enough to go bowling, hopefully against a name team. Judging by what I've seen this year, I don't think we win the last one against UTSA, but I didn't think we'd beat WKU either. Lets just beat UTEP first and see what happens.

    Holtz already has his excuses written out. It sets up for us to win both games. UTEP is the worst team we've faced all year and we get a team not any better than us in UTSA at home.

    If we do get eligible and go to the Indy Bowl I don't believe we would draw as well as in the past. Maybe 25K - 30K, tops.

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

    When you subtract the Tech folks that regularly attend the game, I would think at most 20,000 more Tech fans would attend. Hard to be motivated to watch a 6-6 Tech team play another 6-6 team as an award for the "good" season we have all witnessed. Add the timing of the game and possible weather, 20,000 may be considered outstanding.

    I don't believe many Tech fans should be buying from Tech as the seats will be terrible. There would be many good seats available. I know I wouldn't buy tickets in the top row in the upper east side where my last tickets were. Since they would consider inviting us a favor they would really be trying to screw our fans and school.
