9-3 Louisiana Tech gets no bowl invite. 6-7 Georgia Tech to Sun Bowl.

La Tech led the nation in total offense. They almost upset Top 10 Texas A&M losing 59-57 in the absolute wildest game I watched all year. Not only did 5 of the best 10-11 teams in the country get the shaft in the best bowl games that had a total of 10 slots available, one of the top 30 teams in the country didn't get a bowl AT ALL when there are something like 70 freaking teams playing in bowl games.

Ga Tech will lose the Sun Bowl to Southern Cal and finish 6-8. What a joke.

This system is hopelessly broken.

1. Not true.

La Tech was invited to Independance bowl and turned it down because they were waiting for higher profile bowls to invite them. Ind bowl gave them deadline and it passed so La Tech is at fault 100% for their demise not the bowl system. AD is a dumbass and should be fired according to Karl Malone

3. They didn't turn it down, they asked for more time because the other team the bowl was looking at

would still be available the next day. At least that's what I was told. What's sad is that these bowls rush to get teams even when they have 6-6 records and someone like La Tech always gets left out. Wasn't an 8-4 Temple team left out one year in a similar situation?

I think La Tech was looking at a better option because the Indy Bowl is just a few miles away and not exactly a nice trip and reward for the players and fans. Much more attractive bowls lost out on an entertaining La Tech team because of the system and stupid bowl tie-in rules. I am just pointing out how the system is seriously fucked up!
