    New Orleans....vs USL

    Though some think there are downsides to this match up, I think it would be great.
    First, WHEN we win it, we'd have a leg up on them in recruiting.
    Second, it would be a near sell out. Sadly, we do travel well, but we do ok. USL would help fill the dome and the crowd would look great on TV.

    Yes, I know people will throw rocks. But I'd welcome a New Orleans Carrier Bowl against the Cajuns

    Sell out? Nah. I think I'd pass. Though, some here have argued that playing a 10-win ULL would mean more than a 6 win P5.

    This game couldn't sell out The Joe or Cajun Field, but you think it would sell out the Dome? Pass.

    I agree with others who have said that none of the bowls are remembered except the NY6 and playoff other than by the fans of those teams. At this point, Skippy is just coaching to keep the 10,000 die hard fans engaged.

    This would be one of my top preferences (the bowl - not necessarily the opponent). It would sell out - pretty sure they only use the lower bowl for NO Bowl. I think 35-40,000 would be great turnout for that matchup.

    I don't mind play UL-L. I think they should be a regular on ALL of our athletics schedules. Pretty sure football is the only one that isn't.

    What’s sad is I view our 9-3 season as a huge disappointment. I welcome the possibility of playing ULL in a bowl game this year. Not too long ago we pounded them in Ruston. Curious to see how things would go now. It could be comforting. It could me more of the same blah and eh. It could be a harsh reality check.

    They have a leg up on recruits because of the stipend. The only way we can offset that it to beat them on the field. FCOYHCSH can do it!

    Re: New Orleans....vs USL

    If everybody wants LA Tech to play in the NO Bowl this year, then put Tech against Saturday's winner of the game between Appy St and ULALA. The winner of that CCG game becomes the undisputed champion of the Sunbelt Conference. LA Tech has NEVER lost a game to a Sun Belt football team. Now's the Sunbelt's chance to break the curse! LOL!

    Of course, if LA Tech wins the game, then Sunbelt fans should stop all this nonsense about how good the Sunbelt is these days, and openly acknowledge LA Tech's dominance. I'm up for it, because I think we need to swat them back a couple of notches every few years anyway.

    This would be a "who cares" bowl and match-up. Hopefully despite our late season screw ups, we will end up in Dallas, or even the I-Bowl against a better opponent. The NO Bowl does nothing for TECH. We need to be somewhere it will help us. No one cares about the NO Bowl- I can't say I have ever even watched it- including when TECH played there. I simply followed the scores on ESPN while at Disney having fun.

    On one hand I'll say having to play ull in a bowl is just deserts for this Tech team. We are not very good anyway. On the other hand...just say "No!"

    The above highlighted will never happen. Their fans and ADM aren't rational thinkers; never have been and never will be.

    I'm all for Dallas vs. a P5 or the I-Bowl vs a P5 ACC team.

    I hope we play them. Would be a well attended game and chance for bragging rights in state.

    No bragging rights are if we take down LSU!
