    I just called and spoke with some of our athletic department leadership. LA Tech definitely cancelled the series. And I'm not happy about it. Apparently Dr Woods was not happy with the 2 for 1 contract Tech signed, and he apparently determined that it was a financial loser. Furthermore, Woods told my contacts that it would be almost impossible for Tech to make up the 2020 game that Tech cancelled with Baylor due (supposedly) to LA Tech's COVID concerns.

    You may recall this was the same day that ULL damn near became a household name in college football because the Cajuns showed up and PLAYED and beat Iowa St on national TV. Meanwhile LA Tech presented excuses.

    So now, instead of having a Top 10 team come to Ruston in 2023, it becomes just an other road trip to another big school nobody cares about. Instead of having our first ever possible sellout in JAS, now we'll have nothing. So instead of the City of Ruston merchants receiving a flood of LA Tech and Baylor football fans into town spending money in Lincoln Parish bars, coffee shops, hotels and restaurants, now there will be nothing.

    In my opinion, the LA Tech leadership needs to quit throwing the LA Tech football program under the bus. Almost every year, the Tech leadership does something extremely stupid that ends up HARMING our football program. From the Indy Bowl fiasco in 2012 that resulted in a 9-3 Tech team not receiving a bowl bid, to suspending 6 starters on the eve of the CUSA championship game in 2014, to further suspending our QB1 in 2019 for 2 games on the eve of two "make or break" CUSA games that could have easily ended with Tech finishing the season 13-1, as CUSA champs, and a shot at a NY Day bowl, to NOW THIS very stupid contract cancellation in 2021.

    The disappointment with LA Tech football just never seems to stop. How can the players, Tech students, Tech fans and downtown Ruston merchants and the City of Ruston be happy about this?
    Why are you doubting we had covid issues? They arenít going to give up that game if they didnt.

    Baylor has tended to honor their 2-for-1s. I mean, they went to Monroe for goodness sakes.

    lol, "covid" was used as a cancellation excuse from day 1

    some teams just wanted to play football, and some didn't

    Not for game 3. This particular 2 for 1 was a HORRIBLE deal set up for almost zero money and a home final game in Ruston that would likely have been bought out.

    It was a good move to cancel our former AD's worst ever series setup.

    Re: Louisiana Tech Announces Football Schedule Change for 2022 - latechsports.com

    So...we truly are getting a FCS payment to travel to an SEC school Mizzou. Heck, Southern/Grambling would have gotten more, at least $650K if they brought their band. Lowly...we've won 8 games total the past three seasons combined NSU...would get $500K from Mizzou. Left abandoned by not one (AAC), but two (Belch) conferences and now we take crumbs from rich SEC schools to accommodate their schedule. Not just a whore, but a cheap whore!

    Now...is any of this truly Wood's fault, IDK. Maybe he's trying to salvage a big mess that lil boy TMAC and the WORST prez (Guice) in Tech history has handed him. I do know Tech football continues to seek a quiet exit from the room, hoping no one notices we have left...

    No payouts have been announced, my guess is Mizzou is paying us north of $1,000,000.

    Here is what Mizzou paid out last year:

    September 4 Missouri Central Michigan 1,400,000
    September 18 Missouri Southeast Missouri State 550,000
    October 9 Missouri North Texas 1,300,000

    I'm also curious about the $500,000 number. I saw that a MTSU fan posted that they heard that on the CUSA board, but is there somewhere more official reporting that?

    Wyoming at Connecticut, Sept. 25: Wyoming will travel east to take on the Huskies for a guarantee of zero dollars, but that doesn’t mean the Cowboys are coming away empty-handed. Wyoming originally was scheduled to play Clemson, but Clemson cancelled that contract to play Georgia.

    Because of the cancellation, Clemson and Wyoming settled on a $1 million payment. But then Clemson went a step further, connecting UConn and Wyoming to help the Cowboys fill the hole on their schedule. Clemson will still play UConn this season, but the guarantee for that game was reduced from $1.2 million to $900,000. This was because the Huskies did not have to pay Wyoming for the new game.

    I didn't say I "doubted" it, but,......good guess, I do doubt it.

    Do you really have to ask why Skip Holtz would cancel a season opening road game against a P5 opponent that ended the previous season 11-3, with a 26-14 Sugar Bowl loss to Georgia?

    like I said in another post, there must be other financial incentives, like Baylor buying us out of the contract. Dr. Wood seems like a bright dude.
