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!
    Yep, we have either been snake bit or our own worst enemy in most close games against decent teams this year. Can we cast that aside and win a big game?

I usually have a car load BUT have Sportsdawg drive us back-- I am the worlds greatest day driver but at 70 do not like driving at night and even worse for other folks in the car ... Sportsdawg gets the keys when we arrive at stadium. Wish you could make Tech and Tails event or Tech game in Shreveport-- we have solid crowd --- I will make almost any Bowl we invited to but Shreveport will have more fans than NO or Dallas ---

    100% coaches fault. The equipment manager outfitted them with the wrong cleats and S&C guy isnít doing enough speed ladders and footwork drills. 😀

    I think we will win Saturday and if we are selected for a bowl, that would be great. Tech would defeat @ Lafayette, I believe.

    Yep, the Cotton Bowl and the Independence Bowl are comparable, and Megan Fox and Sandra Bernhard are both actresses.

    He's talking about the location of the stadiums (their neighborhood)

    I agree with you. So far, their defense is very bad.

    That's a hilarious analogy.

    They fall down a lot because they are overcompensating from blake baker consistently having them out of position. They all run to a deep ball or crossing route and run into each other.

    Ya know.......it's not like this stuff ain't on video. Kinda hard for our DB's to blame Baker when they time their jumps like Edward Scissorhands.

    That is a stretch.
    If the defender has the receiver covered and trips, how is that Baker's fault?
    The Tech defense has played very well for the most part.

    I would like to see our offense, defense, and special teams all put an entire 4 quarters of good football together on Saturday. Then get a month of practice in, sign 10-12 of our commitments during the Dec 20-22 early signing period, and the following week beat an ACC team in the Independence Bowl.

    I will add just one thing to that wish list....well, two things. But one thing would be Dawg80 wins the Powerball.

    Is the other thing Tech related? I assume the Powerball wish is because of the potential donation to Tech.
