I'll take it. And our losing seasons skid ends (unless we make a bowl and lose)

It does not look like we are going to make a bowl game. I hope I'm wrong on this

Good way to end season! Very optimistic (unlike some of you)about next year!

Go Arky St. - beat WKU!!!! This is our best chance to get a bowl game as we will have a better conference record than WKU plus we beat them head to head despite them having a better overall record.

I think we'll get a bowl, it may be Detroit, but a bowl is a bowl. .500 is better than losing, next year, it'll be 8-4!

You gotta think WKU will get no help from the conference office since they are bailing on the Sun Belt after this season

73 bowl eligible teams...we need these teams to lose:

Rutgers (UConn, not likely)
Syracuse (BC, maybe)
Central Michigan (@Eastern Mich, almost 100% certain win)
FAU (FIU, not likely)
San Jose State (Fresno, almost a lock to lose - although they are leading 42-41 at half!!!!)
Wyoming (@Utah State, very likely)
Colorado State (@Air Force, not likely)
ULM (@ULL, 50/50)
USA (two more games, very likely)

Two Big 12 teams in the BCS helps. Two from the SEC helps. Two from the ACC certainly helps.

If it comes down to between TMTDM and WKU, sorry they are leaving for CDOA - see MTSU last year.

Unfortunately, I believe we will be one of two or three teams left out. That game last night hurt our chances big time.

1. It certainly does

2. That seems that would be the case in that scenario

3. I think this is probably the most likely outcome. Hope I'm wrong.

What makes you say that? I think otherwise

I admire your optimism. I have no reason other than I just feel like we will be one of the teams left out.

Talked with a guy that works in the athletic department last night. He likes our chances. Even with the ole miss loss.

He didn't say... He did say they were talking with godaddy... That was it...

We will get godaddy IF stAte gets a independence bowl invite. This is what I'm hoping for.

I sure do hope so he's right.

BTW, when I go to TroyTrojans.com, the first page that comes up wants everyone to reserve their bowl tickets. Does this help Troy's chances of receiving a bid if a bowl committee sees we have a lot of people already reserving tickets?

Now that is interesting.

Looks like at least going to be at least 75 teams for 70 spots.

Which 5 get left out.

@adprende_TROY: Troy fans are speaking loud and clear that they will buy tickets to a bowl game response so far has been overwhelming

Spent a ton of $$$ in the bookstore today, but I will dig through the couch to make sure we get our bowl tickets. :thumb:

BTW, they have blackout fan jerseys for sale in the bookstore. Got me one.

Went ahead and reserved a couple, since you all make it sound like its helps, plus doesn't appear to be any obligation.

Which is good, because I will try very hard to make a Mobile game, but Detroit....not so much. Though I'd love to, don't get me wrong.

Trojan TKE ordered his two before he even got home last night and we ordered ours as soon as we got back from the game last night!

We would love pointing the TroVan south. From Shelby County to Dallas County to Mobile County. Might even have room to pick someone up along the way.
