    LA Tech and Bruce Van de Velde and the Liberty Bowl

    Remember our old Athletic Director BVD? He is now at LA Tech. And they were given an invite to the Independence Bowl. But BVD was hoping to get a better Bowl offer. Namely the Liberty Bowl. Which LA Tech with a 9-3 record would have gotten IF the Sooners made it into the BCS Bowl. Well we all know that Northern Illinois took that spot. And that opened up the Liberty Bowl to ask ISU to play in its game. So LA Tech got snubbed and got no invite to any bowl.

    Which makes me so thankful that we have Jamie Pollard as our AD and not the bumbling foolish Bruce Van de Velde. How ironic is it that ISU is the ones bumping La Tech and BVD from the Bowl scene. I love it.

    Not to be rude, but there's a couple other threads on this. Not trying to be the forum police, but in case you're looking, some good discussions and info are out there.

    LA Tech's not going to a bowl? Crap, I better make a thread about it!

    Is Bruce Van De Velde still their AD? Better make a thread about that, too.

    Just saw Jesse Palmer blast BVDV by name on ESPN. Showed some Karl Malone tweets...Bruce might want to get out of town.

    Re: LA Tech and Bruce Van de Velde and the Liberty Bowl

    Honestly I feel a little bad for all involved especially the players and family of he players. This will have a dramatic negative affect on the schools athletic department. How does the coach trust the AD, how does the President, players and fans trust the AD. How can a recruit want to be part of that?

    Bruce will resign after this among pressure from everyone. If he wants to continue being an AD it will be at the D3 or High School level. Can't believe he was at ISU.
