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

    Well, I think it's a shame that the idiots on the Idiot Bowl committee have ruined what should be an asset for Shreveport-Bossier and the region as a whole. I could support the bowl again if it actually served the needs of North Louisiana and provided another option to go bowling for Tech.

    We have just completed the regional bowl tour: Dallas, New Orleans, Fort Worth and it was awesome! As others have posted Tech Football is growing, getting better, garnering NATIONAL attention!! and the Idiot Bowl continues to sink further into irrelevancy. Still, it would be better for both sides if the I-Bowl was on the circuit for Tech. Before it dies a slow, miserable death hopefully the I-Bowl will get a totally new committee with people with IQs in triple digits and smaller egos.

    The Independence Bowl Foundation oversees the leadership and management of the I-Bowl. Committees with chairs are made up of their membership. Membership is open and applications are available on their website. Want a new direction for the I-Bowl? Get enough new members with a different agenda and take the bowl over.

    WOW!!! No defending comments made to ML's people by some member (or members) that the I-Bowl didn't need Camping World & the bowl would survive with or without CW....even if they had to pay for it out of their own pocket. What arrogance!

    Makes it even more believable that they used the same attitude with us in 2012.

    I nominate DFM for Executive Director of the I-bowl but only if he can secure Paul Mitchell Products as the new title sponsor.

    Seems like Lemonis is merely attempting to defend his exodus to me. That's sort of a weird thing to say without naming the foundation member or the staff members.
