    Football Tech in a bowl?

    Assumptions ...
    An undefeated Hawaii will get a BCS invite.
    A 1-loss WAC team will not.
    A 6-6 Tech would be the least attractive option of any other 6-6 WAC teams.
    SJSU will lose at Boise.

    What has to happen ...
    Tech must win the rest of its conference games.
    Hawaii must win out.
    Nevada must lose at NMSU or at SJSU

    Champ predicts ...
    Hawaii to BCS.
    Boise to Humanitarian Bowl.
    Fresno to New Mexico Bowl.
    Tech to Hawaii Bowl.

    That is some optimistic thinking. I like it.

    I wouldn't put money on it..... but I like it.

    At 6-6 we are not bowl deserving.


    But I'd take! After all, we did get the shaft two years ago!

    I think Boise could get an invite to a non-Wac bowl.

    We may not be deserving in one sense, but we are JUST AS DESERVING as any other 6-6 team that will be bowling this year. And there will be several.

    no it is not, but it has happened in the past, and Tech was the one getting the shaft with a better record. I think 6-6 Notre Dame went bowling the year Tech was 9-2 and Tech stayed home...

    As crazy as the college season has been, I wouldn't be shocked to see Tech wind up in a bowl provided we run the table on the remaining conference games. If we end up 6-6, at least nobody can say we played an easy schedule. I think that might account for some consideration.

    As I said on another thread, we need to have SOMEONE rally for us to be in the Mobile bowl.

    Say UTEP becomes Bowl eligible then it might be reasonable to SWAP. They would go to a West coast Bowl and we would stay over here.

    I was thinking the same think yesterday... we control our own destiny to a degree...

    when we beat Nevada head-to-head, wouldn't that give us the tie-breaker head-to-head with them in conference record?

    Also... wouldn't be suprised if a 1-loss BOISE team slips into a BCS bowl either. Remember, a couple of years ago with one loss, they were in the top 12, and that's now the only criteria for a WAC team to get a bid

    Sorry, that is very true.

    Oh, and 6-6 IS GOING TO HAPPEN!

    Now if we could just get to 7-5 there would be no question on the "deservingness" of TECH in a bowl game. And, DAMN, it would feel good!

    Yes, but remember ... only the WAC champ is garaunteed a bowl spot. The WAC's tie-breaker rule only applies when the WAC has co-champs, and only for that one garaunteed spot.

    Under this system, a 12-1 WAC co-champ could sit at home while a handful of 7-5 (or 7-6!)WAC teams went bowling. Extremely unlikely, but possible under this system.

    As for this season ... Tech's best shot at a WAC bowl (assuming no at-large spots become available elsewhere) is for Nevada to finish with 7 losses.

    And I hate to say that. I like Nevada and their fans.

    Let's just beat the spuds....

    Nothing else matters if we can't beat the spuds....

    I think Saturday's game is the most important game for this program in a long time - if we win, we have a legit chance at a .500 season -

    When was the last time we REALLY finshed strong? I talking 4 of 5 or 4 of six to close the season?

    2001? 1999?

    It's been a LONG TIME -

    DFM - I totally agree with you. We need to focus on Idaho and let the everything else take care of itself.

    FYI - our last 6 games the last few years:

    2006: 1-6 (won vs. North Texas)
    2005: 5-1 (lost vs. Boise St.)
    2004: 3-3
    2003: 2-4
    2002: 2-4
    2001: 4-2
    2000: 2-4
    1999: 5-1 (lost vs. USC)
    1998: 4-2
    1997: 5-1 (lost vs. Auburn)
