    We will go at some level, we will not be 40,000 strong , but we will go. I do not like the I-Bowl because of how they treated us , but I will be there . Go dogs! This assumes we win Saturday, and that is not a given looking at our record in games that mean something.

    I work a mile from Independence Stadium. I will be at the game if Tech is there. We have a Junior Hockey team playing at the Hirsch that averages 3000 a game.

    Yes! Another month of practice and play a 6-6 Duke one week after signing day. This year is the first that HS players can sign Dec. 20-22. I-Bowl vs an ACC P5 would help recruiting IMO.

    Your Junior Hockey team draws more than Tech does Shreveport/Bossier Tech Alums?

    For whatever reason, bowl games draw a separate segment of the fanbase above the normal participants. They will come out to the Independence Bowl. As for the location, I've been to Legion Field and the Cotton Bowl for games recently. It's comparable.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    I don't think you guys understand how very bad ULLL is. Tech could run their world-famous zone-read-run offense all day on them and their DB's are just horrendous. Score would be somewhere around 52-21.

    But, our DB's fall down a lot. Seriously. Our DB's gave up two TD's to UTEP last week because they apparently couldn't stand up on their 2 feet like 99% of our American population. It's the one thing Holtz expressed legitimate frustration about in his press conference this week. They do fall down a lot.

    Take away one slip, likely negates 80 or whatever yards one of their TDs went for.

    If we win Saturday we need to take whatever bowl is played latest in December.

    And not against a SBC team please.

    NO bowl would be much easier for me to attend because of proximity and being on a Saturday. But I would prefer the I-bowl this year. Particularly against a 6-6 ACC team. It would be a tough one for me to go to but I will make sure I am there. I don't have a good feeling about this weekend though.

    Sans the WKU win, our 2017 Dawgs haven't won a game that appears to be a toughie going in. High time we do just that!

    This team has been trapped in a "funk" all year. Suffered some bad luck, and were their own worst enemy at times too. But now they stand on the threshold of being able to salvage something from this year. Beat UTSA....win a bowl game...that's the way to end the year. And that's the way our seniors should go out! Just think, if they do accomplish that. All four years in a Tech uniform they were a bowl champion!

    In the bigger picture nationally. Tech is one of just 9 programs riding a three-game bowl win streak. Let's make it four in a row!
