It won’t be an ACC team to that Military bowl in RFK…….the ACC is out of slots at six……..maybe Ohio U?

Its a shame that 8-4 MTSU and 9-3 LA TECH didn’t make bowls. Because there were 72 bowl eligible teams, I would have kicked out 6-6 C. Michigan and 6-6 PITT, and put in MTSU and LTECH. LTECH would have played ULM in the independence bowl, MTSU would have played Ole Miss in the BBVA Compass bowl, and Ohio would have played WKU in the Pizza Bowl.

Well I don’t feel a bit sorry for LA Tech. They have this feeling that they are better than other schools in Louisiana and absolutely refuse to play them in a bowl game. This time the Independence Bowl didn’t cater to them so now they get to watch on TV.

La. Tech has no business being on a “high horse”, when their signature win this season was over a 4-8 Virginia squad……they just blew about $600K + for their bank account.

MTSU, who beat an ACC Divisional champ. (G Tech) should have been in over Cent. Mich. (although that whuppin’ Arkansas St. gave them stuck more in the minds of the Bowl folks).
