    What would have greater implications for LaTech next year?

    Beating LSU or playing in a major bowl game (not playoff)?

    I don't mean LSU as the only win. I mean something like finishing 9-3 with a win over LSU vs finishing 11-1 with a loss to LSU?
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    to me, it depends on the other games we win/lose. Who else is on non conference for next season? Even in a down year for lsu means we should not lose a conference game.

    Good point. Let's say LSU has a year somewhat comparable to this year (with us being the "Troy")

    Re: What would have greater implications for LaTech next year?

    It would always benefit us more, IMO, to beat lsu and have an 8-9 win year regardless of which bowl we get into. 11-1 would be awesome, but which wtf games would we be taking out of the equation and assuming we win them? I donít think you can ignore wtf games, so a win over lsu is almost a must if we want to get to 8-9 wins anyway.

    We also have Miss. State. Winning a major bowl would help us more nationally. Beating LSU would help us in Louisiana.

    Long term winning the conference championship would do more imo. Beating LSU would be grand a cause for celebration but it would fade because we donít play them every year.

    Oh hell, take all that back. BEAT LSU!!

    For recruiting, winning a conference championship, if you live in the state , beating LSU. But remember that all you will hear is it was a down year for them and probably more irritating " that's a pretty good team " said in the most condescending voice you will ever hear.
    Short answer for me since I live hear a win over LSU.

    Re: What would have greater implications for LaTech next year?

    To grow our program we need to be the highest ranked G5 team and go to the access bowl. That might require beating lsu, but history has shown that losing one game won't knock a team out of the running for the Access Bowl spot.

    Beating lsu would be great for a few months bragging rights, but nothing long term.

    Beating LSU would have greater implications, but in order to realize the full impact of the win, we'd need to win our conference championship as well as our bowl game. Otherwise, the win over LSU would be considered a fluke by everyone and we'd never hear the end of "LSU was Tech's Super Bowl". We wouldn't out of south Louisiana and Shreveport anyway.

    Re: What would have greater implications for LaTech next year?

    I would take a win over LSU, period. We went 6-6 last year............. Gimme that beat down in BR anytime.

    I would take a losing season with a win in BR.
