    Catch-All Thread for all the other bowl announcements

    They don't want to play a rival so they will miss out on valuable practice time and perks for their players? Seems silly to me.

    Louisiana Tech, nations #1 offense, 9-3 turns down a bowl bid in the Independence Bowl against ULM, so it seems like LTU won't be in a bowl.

    So the SEC got out of the former Weedwacker Bowl. If so, it was due to the SEC teams feeling like the last man picked in a grade school game and the jokes that were made about the team the went there. They must have had enough. I believe Coach Saban even quipped about the Bowl game a couple of years ago when making a point about not following the process or something

    ? I just read this: "Aggies vs. Oklahoma in Cotton Bowl on Jan. 4 -- 7 p.m. on a Friday night in Cowboys Stadium. Multiple sources (finally) confirm." on twitter through Cecil Hurt.

    Aggies vs Sooners is a good match up.

    The best games since the addition of the Big East and other little man rules have been the 2nd tier big conference game tie ins like the Cotton, Capital One and former Peach Bowl. Maybe two at the most of the big 4 is a good matchup, the rest are duds.

    But to truly get to a playoff requires a few years of watering them down.

    La Tech screwed this one up. On another note, looks like the Baylor Bears will travel to San Diego for a Holiday Bowl matchup with UCLA.

    If this is TRUE, the Aggies may want payback for that 77 to 0 Fran Man loss a few years ago. Oklahoma better be ready, otherwise they are going to get a wild west whooping real bad.

    I hope it's a very good weather day in Dallas: do they play in Jerry's House or Cotton Bowl Stadium. Just can't remember.

    Re: Catch-All Thread for all the other bowl announcements

    If only cause T&Am beat us and are new to the conference I was hoping they would play a good game. If it is true that they play OK then I think it is a good game possibility...depending what OK team comes out to play, it is almost like they make that decision before they come out for the game. (i.e. whether they will actually win or blow it).

    LaTech was not selected for a bowl game. They were playing some high-roller poker hoping for a better game than the Independence and ended up with nothing.
