    Thumbs Up Atmosphere

    Wow, I'm not too sure about everyone else but it was a great feeling to be at a Tech game where people didn't leave early, and acted as true football fans. This is a great start to getting more of the students involved in the program. Also seems like since Tech sold their tickets then we should be attractive to the Indy bowl in the future.

    Also good that the WAC can atleast win one bowl Fresno and Hawaii made the WAC look weak.

    Re: Atmosphere

    Fox and Company had a great thought for our illustrious Commissioner. He needs to get us to be the back up tie in when an SEC or Big 12 team cannot fulfill their IBOWL obligation. Someone needs to contact this Benson regarding this. I am almost positive he will not think of this on his own but we will let it be "his" idea if he gets it done. We proved alot to Shreveport once again about our fan base. Remember how full the stadium was when we played A&M? OSU was not that bad either. I would love to see us get a chance to kick the %&^% out of BAYLOR.

    Can't we negotiate that directly with the IBowl, without Benson?

    So would that put us in line before or after a 7-5 Belch team?

    Before. What I said was let the IBOWL keep their tie in with SEC and Big 12 but the first team to call if they cant get one of those teams is Tech(if bowl eligable of course).

    That would be a huge win/win agreement both for Tech and the Independence Bowl. My bet though is that the I-Bowl will continue to refuse to acknowledge this. Hopefully it gets done.

    I expect some changes w/Indy when the SEC/Big 12 agreements end. If they don't have a sponsor for next year that will happen for sure.

    I believe that the Tech people negotiated the best deal possible for Tech in '08 and possibly we will see gains in future years. Hopefully they didn't leave anything on the table.

    My dream is a Indy/Tech/CUSA tie-in of some sort.

    Interesting thought.
    We know that the current ties bring people to stay overnight, but I wonder if we would appreciate the tie in more... that would be a yes.

    Do you really think something would happen ..that drastic... thats a big shift.
